About this book
High quality watches typically cost a large quantity of money, and it is unlikely, unless the watch’s owner is filthy rich and equally careless with his wealth, that an expensive watch will be tossed aside after a few years. The highest quality watches, from Rolexes to Bvlgaris, will likely be treasured for a generation or more. Even the highest quality watches, however, require regular servicing, which may mean a simple battery change or something more extensive, such as changing the rubber gaskets on a waterproof watch. How should a fancy watch owner go about finding a good service center, and what sort of servicing might be required? Grab a copy of this ebook today.

Swiss Army Knives, A Collector's Companion

Creator: Derek Jackson | Pocketknives - 2007

Soon after, in 1891, he formed the Swiss Cutlery Guild with the main aim of producing soldiers¿ knives for the Swiss Army, which had to date bought from German sources.

About this book
A fascinating, colourfully illustrated celebration of one of the great icons of Swiss culture: in France it's the Couteau Swisse, in Germany the Schweizer Messer to the English speaking world it's the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife - used by military programmes the world over, given away as gifts to guests by the White House (Lyndon Johnson did it first), and even taken as part of the equipment on the Space Shuttle. Charles Elsener, the fourth son of a hatmaker, decided not to enter the family business but to become a cutler. After serving his apprenticeship in south Germany, he opened his own business near Schwyz in Switzerland. Soon after, in 1891, he formed the Swiss Cutlery Guild with the main aim of producing soldiers¿ knives for the Swiss Army, which had to date bought from German sources. By the end of the year the first batch had been delivered and Elsener¿s plan proved a success - the first knife, known by name rather than type number, the Soldier's knife had a blade, awl, can opener and screwdriver.Then the development started: as well as the simple Soldier's knife he quickly developed the Student Knife, the Cadet Knife and Farmer's Knife. Because the Soldier's knife was heavy, Elsener developed the lighter Officer's knife, with an added second blade and a corkscrew. Today, Victorinox is the biggest cutlery producer in Europe, producing 34,000 Officer's knives in 100 different styles daily, along with 43,000 of 300 different styles of pocket knife, and the same number of kitchen knives.

    Fool me twice, shame on me.

    1/5 Boothtech - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Men's 249090 Original Analog Display Swiss Quartz Black Watch (Watch) I've owned two of these watches now. I wish I could get my money back. They look fantastic, but they do not keep time. The first watch I had would lose a couple of hours per week. I tried changing the battery, having a certified jeweler take a look, and nothing seemed to do the trick. Fast forward a couple years, I figured, I'll try again. Shame on me. Just out of the box, and this new watch gains ten min for every hour that goes by. I am beyond shocked. Is it my bad luck, or just a defective product? One bad watch can be poor luck... two is a pattern. Save your money. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 21, 2016

    Not a fan of the band, love the base of the watch so far

    4/5 Taylor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Men's 249090 Original Analog Display Swiss Quartz Black Watch (Watch) I'm leaving for a long international trip soon, and had previously ordered a Timex Expedition Scout watch. The price and durability seemed up to par, but it broke within the first two days of wear and tear. Enter the Victorinox Swiss Army watch. I have really high hopes for this watch and like the style of the watch itself. The protective crown molding seems to be well designed and will keep it ticking.I DID however switch out the bands, because the one that comes with this Victorinox watch feels a little thin, feminine, and not quite as durable as the thick nylon one that came with the Timex. So I think I've found harmony between the two, August 11, 2016

    Nice...

    This is my third Victorinox Swiss Army watch over the years.This model is perfect for me, just the basics and no unnecessary features I don't need.Followup:After one week, the watch stopped working.I thought it might be the battery and took it to a friendly jeweler who has a little kiosk at my local mall.He checked it out and the battery was fine.He told me that he applied some oil to the internal mechanisms and it has been working fine since then.Fortunately he is a nice guy and didn't charge me anything.IMHO, this should not have been necessary with a new watch.In spite of this, I am still pleased with my purchase.Please note that if you don't have an authorized Victorinox dealer service the watch it voids the Warranty, but oh well...But wait, there's more...I have had several occasions when I looked at the watch and noticed that it had lost several hours over the past 24... 4/5 Bear (Palm Beaches) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Amazing watch, decent band

    This is a wonderful watch. It's more of a designer brand (i.e. made by a non-watch company, unlike Oris or Hamilton and more like Gucci), but you still get all of the fine Swiss finishes. The face is beautifully symmetrical and clean, while being protected by a thick sapphire crystal surrounded by a stark-white ceramic bezel. The applied indices are a nice touch and the font used for the numbers is quite sleek. The mix between brushed and polished metal is nicely done and have sharp transitions between the two. The curvature of the lugs is similar to the Omega Seamaster line, which is quite the complement.The only faults I can find in this watch (for the price) is that the crown doesn't screw down (no way this thing holds up to the 100m depth rating) and the bracelet is simply mediocre. You get solid links, but they are also squeaky. The clasping mechanism is a butterfly with an unnecessary latch for extra security; the addition of the latch makes removing and putting the... 4/5 JA (Colorado) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Almost perfect

    4/5 Portia51 (Virginia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Men's 241538 Chrono Classic Analog Display Swiss Quartz Silver Watch (Watch) This was a gift for our son who said he really liked it. I pored over the many watches listed on Amazon before I chose this one. When I saw it I didn't like the white bezel around the watch, although when I read those words I didn't know what they were talking about. If I had I would have chosen a different one. I hope my son likes it and isn't disappointed. The quality is very good, packaging sturdy and impressive. If it wasn't for the white ring around the outside of the watch it would have been perfect.
