Imagine a material so robust it can withstand fire, water, salt spray, acidic substances, and countless twists and pulls. A material prized by watchmakers for over a century, and redesigned by Victorinox Swiss Army. The tough leather originally used in the crafting of firemen’s boots is a material that measures up to the ultimate I.N.O.X. standards of resistance. Cut from a single piece of black or brown leather with integrated lining, its V-shaped silhouette recalls the blade of the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife, stamped with the iconic “Cross & Shield” logo. While sacrificing none of the resistance that characterizes I.N.O.X., it gives the piece a classic yet contemporary feel. Authenticity If it does not have our Cross and Shield emblem and Victorinox Swiss Army on the dial, it is not an authentic Victorinox Swiss Army timepiece. Ours are the only timepieces authorized by the Swiss government to carry the name Swiss Army. 3-Year Warranty A minimum of 100 quality control tests allow Victorinox Swiss Army to offer a 3-year warranty. Cleaning To preserve the attractive appearance of the watch, regularly clean the case and the steel or gold bracelet in slightly soapy water, then rinse in fresh water and dry with a soft cloth. Leather is a noble, living material. When it gets wet it tends to lose its suppleness and color. If possible, avoid frequent immersion in water and daily showers. When the watch has been in saltwater, it should be carefully rinsed with clear water and dried as soon as possible. Shocks Avoid impact, drops and repeated friction that could abrade the metal and affect the watch mechanism. We recommend that you take off your watch while playing tennis, squash or golf. Also avoid contact with chemical products, exposure to high temperatures, and strong magnetic field.
