Up close and personal…
I recently had the opportunity review a couple new watches from Victorinox (the “Swiss Army” brand) – the Air Boss Mach 8 Special Edition and the Infantry Vintage Chrono. I was quite impressed with both watches and recommend them for an “entry-level” luxury/high-end mechanical watch. The movements in both watches is a Valjoux 7750, a very commonly used Swiss made movement with an excellent track record for reliability and accuracy (for the normal watch wearer). You can learn more at Victorinox Swiss Army’s good website for these new, higher-end watches at mechanical.victorinox.com.
Here is the first review. I will post the Infantry Vintage Chrono tomorrow, and then later in the week I have a “side-by-side” comparison of the two. I hope you enjoy these reviews. If you have any questions or if I overlooked any details you wonder about, just drop a comment and I will be glad to share more insights.
