    Vintage Swiss Army VIP?

    New to the forums......

    Not sure if this belongs here and also not sure if this is vintage enough, but this watch was given to me a log time ago and I was looking for a little bit of information on it as Im just now appreciating it.
    , if anyone could help. Only thing I know is that it is a Swiss Army VIP. Note I did put that leather strap on the watch because the other was torn badly.

    Thanks in advance

    Pics of the movement (insides) would help a lot. The T-Swiss-T (tritium lume) marking puts this in the 60's or 70's I think. But the dial makes me think relatively modern... The movement will resolve the question.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    It takes a battery, so i suppose its a quartz movement? There is also an o-ring of some sort on the inside that looks like it could be changed.

    Its an interesting quad-date watch with moonphase. Too me a few minutes to realize that the outer ring was week-of-the-year; you don't see that much. It loses points with me because of its attempt to mimic the look of a chronograph though, and the position of the sub-dials tells me that the movement is only a fraction of the size of the case.
