Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Mechanical Watch Hands-On

Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Mechanical Watch Hands-On

From the moment  Victorinox Swiss Army previously appeared the tough I.N.O.X. watch assortment back in 2014 I began to ask, “where is the mechanical version?” I wasn’t in reality sure Victorinox Swiss Army could actually deliver a mechanical rendition of the I.N.O.X. given the product’s guarantee of having the option to endure 130 torment tests. A portion of those incorporate vibration and stun that quartz watches set up with better than mechanical ones. All things considered, today the quartz forms of the I.N.O.X. watches are the most sturdy however for 2018 Victorinox is adding the Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Mechanical to the bigger I.N.O.X. assortment with four new models (two ties between two dials).

How less strong are these automatic renditions of the I.N.O.X. compared to the quartz ones? There isn’t a straightforward method to respond to that however at the very least on the off chance that you feel your watch needs to endure the most thorough maltreatment, at that point a quartz development is likely most appropriate for your requirements. Be that as it may, in the event that you appreciate the tasteful styling of the I.N.O.X. in any case, need something somewhat more business-disapproved, at that point the I.N.O.X. Mechanical is an extraordinary option.


On either a lash or wristband the Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Mechanical watch costs well under $1,000 and contains a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic development which works at 4Hz with around two days of force save. Victorinox Swiss Army changed the I.N.O.X. dial a piece to recommend a more conventional presence. The most vital new plan component is the “Alox-style” dial design, which impersonates the appearance of the brand’s metal-cased folding knives. The I.N.O.X. Mechanical dial is generally moderately calm yet in addition decipherable, offered in dark or dull blue for 2018.

The 43mm wide steel instance of the I.N.O.X. stays as before width for the I.N.O.X. Mechanical (and I trust it is about a similar thickness also). The case is as yet water-impervious to 200m with a screw-down crown, and has a triple AR-covered sapphire precious stone over the dial. Despite the fact that this is a nearer to-spending cost for a mechanical watch, it would have been decent for Victorinox Swiss Army to utilize a marginally designed form of the 2824 for a model, for example, the I.N.O.X. Mechanical.

An fascinating new lash alternative at Victorinox Swiss Army for 2018 is delivered with a genuine wood outside. For individuals who need to accepted the “woodsy” individual inside this is unquestionably a novel hope to try different things with. The earthy colored wood tie is very comfortable, however I don’t know how it will age. Somewhat more however I would prefer is the maybe more traditionalist coordinating steel wristband, which I feel has consistently complimented the I.N.O.X. nicely.


As Victorinox Swiss Army keeps on fleshing out the well known I.N.O.X. assortment with more models, it is doing the brand an assistance by assisting with advancing an exceptionally solid item. Simultaneously it is hazy how shoppers will respond (if by any means) to an I.N.O.X. that isn’t as solid as some different renditions of the watch. So, I will wager that solitary few I.N.O.X. watch proprietors really put their watch through genuine action. I likewise appreciate how Victorinox Swiss Army didn’t endlessly increment the cost of the I.N.O.X. watch for the mechanical model yet rather just expanded the value two or three hundred dollars.

The I.N.O.X. Mechanical is a smidgen more present day and smooth than other comparative mechanical Victorinox Swiss Army observes so I think it absolutely has a spot for itself on the lookout. The I.N.O.X. Mechanical references 241834 (blue) and 241836 (dark) on the wood tie have a retail cost of $795 USD while the reference 241835 (blue) and 241837 (dark) on the coordinating steel arm band have a retail cost of $850 USD. swissarmy.com
