    Question Genuine Victorinox Swiss Army watch?

    Where can I get one in the UK?

    Prices seem to vary a lot on these. From £40 to £300.

    How can I tell a genuine one from a fake?

    Ah right. Yea, thats probably my best bet.

    I guess they're all going to be physical stores tho? Or do they have authorized online dealers?

    The Victorinox website doesn't seem to show anywhere that I can buy them. Ideally I'd like to get one from an online store.

    Bond street is a bit far away for me.

    Cheers :)

    The last two I purchased were from ebay.
    Fantastic prices too.
    Both are obviously legit ... but I wasn't too concerned about getting a fake of this brand. While it is conceivable that they are faked, I figure it would be easy to ID something faked at this price-point. I've handled high-end fakes of Rolex, Omega, and Breitling and could tell they weren't the real-deal every single time. I think the most difficult-to-ID ones are of vintage pieces.

    OK, the above link is for the same site but a different page and it will show all contact info for the UK rep and a London retailer (and no, it's not on Bond Street). On this same page you could click on different cities in UK for a local retailer. Please read the WARNING to the left of the page, Victorinox does not authorize their watches to be sold online in the UK. But, if it's anything like here, that shouldn't necessarily mean that you cannot get a genuine watch online. I suggest you Google "Victorinox watches" to see if there're any online dealers. Again, keep in mind that those dealers will not be authorized. Hope this helps.

    Edit: When I Google-searched "Victorinox Swiss Army watches UK" I came up with some online dealers. Here are the top links. Remember, I know nothing about any of these dealers.
