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.

    5/5 PJF (Essex, CT, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Men's 249087 Original XL Black Stainless Steel Watch (Watch) Love this watch! I had a smaller version of this and the movement finally died on it about 8 years ago. For some reason, at that point I got a chrome "Garrison" Swiss Army watch which I never really liked. When it stopped a few days ago, rather than replace its battery I just got one of these. The simple uncluttered styling is perfect, its "look" is retro and elegant, the 42mm size of this is just right for a guy or for a woman who prefers the look of a larger watch, and the phosphorescent hands enable me to check the time in the dark when I wake up at night. Why did Victorinox stop making these???? Their current line of mens watches is cluttered with knobs and dials which I don't need: all I want is the time and date!

This review is from: Victorinox Men's 249087 Original XL Black Stainless Steel Watch (Watch) I bought this watch for my husband's birthday. It was a replacement for a very old version of this same watch. He really likes it; nearly identical to the original one except that it doesn't have a lighted dial. Great price and great delivery.

    The same watch 20 years later

    When I was in high school, my father bought me this watch. I grew up pretty poor, so it was truly an extravagance. When I went off to college, my friends and I drove out to this waterfall and jumped off the rocks into the pool below. We kept daring one another to jump from higher and higher up. I got up the courage to jump from 30 feet up, but as I hit the water, I felt a tug on my wrist, and when I surfaced, I noticed that my watch band had broken, and I'd lost the watch my father had gotten for me.It's been 20 years now. My father passed away not long after that, and I miss him every day. Imagine my surprise when I saw that Victorinox sells this watch again. As soon as I saw it, I bought another one.

For those wondering the history, Victorinox (named after the founder's mother, Victoria, combined with the word INOX, for steel) is the maker of the "original" Swiss Army knife, world-famous, of course. Wenger is the other "real" Swiss Army Knife (which is a term actually coined by servicemen, not the Victorinox company) out there, and is also genuinely Swiss, although the company fell on hard times, and was bought out, in 2005, by Victorinox.

    A solid, hefty watch with quite a presence on your wrist. Excellent value for it's price point

    Very nice watch for it's price point. The main reason that triggered this purchase for me is the price. I saw the same model at the stores going for three times more. Based on the box, documents, warranty and watch itself, it is definitely the real deal.All in all it's quite a watch to behold, bigger than a Submariner in size but roughly the same thickness. If you have small wrists be careful as this watch has a big presence. It is not as big as some of the monsters out there (IWC big pilot, the big Panerais etc), but it's no 40mm sleeve-tucker either.It comes with a lot of links on its band, generous even for the biggest wrists. It is quite comfortable to wear all day, although I have to confess it is not the most comfortable watch i've worn, that honour goes to the Breitling Aerospace Evo titanium, ridiculously comfortable for even the hottest days out in the sun.

    Not as elegant as the Officer's Model, but nice in its own right

    After reading reviews (albeit older) about the band, I contacted the seller and they replied to every question I had. So I was confident about their integrity. This is my second VSA. I had expected this to be the big brother of my 38mm Officer's model. But it's a little different: 1)The Officer's model dial-face is silver; this is, too, but lighter, almost whitish. The Officer's model has the minute markers applied directly onto the steel dial face; this one uses a chapter ring. And the Officer's model has a more expensive band. Overall impression is that this one is not quite as elegant as the Officer's. HOWEVER, it has its own Pros: 1) it's a better size for a man, at 40mm; its hour/minute hands are lummed; the crown is better protected, and 3) the time is easier to read at a glance (dial is more readable, because of a less radiant finish).So I'll give it 5 stars because I'm a sucker for Victorinox Swiss Army watches. This came in a Victorinox box with the manual. At... 5/5 Dan Carrison - See all my reviews, September 25, 2016

    Great deal at $100 but consider what you'll do if the band latch fails.

    3/5 Robert - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Victorinox Swiss Army Men's SWISSA-241359 Officer's Stainless Steel Watch (Watch) I bought this because it was so cheap. I already had a 241293 Infantry White Watch. Contrary to the description, there are no luminous hours marks on the Officers. The band locking mechanism seems poorly designed and flimsy. My Infantry latch is easier and sturdier. The Infantry has a coating on the sapphire crystal. This one does not. They both have five-jewel Ronda movements, although mine came with directions for a better ETA movement. Although this watch is 40mm and the Infantry is 38mm, this watch does not seem heavier. Perhaps it is a bit thinner than the Infantry. This is a sturdy, quality five star watch at $100, but I'd be disappointed if I'd paid $300. I assume they are closing it out because of complaints/problems with the band. It looks like the Infantry band will fit on the Officer's watch, so I have a backup solution. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 25, 2017

It had all the plastic coverings on it but it was running when i unpacked it.Overall though it appears well made and looks nice the watch case isn't too thick and the band looks good.
