    Is this Victorinox some type of fake?

    I found this Victorinox ladies model on Amazon when looking for a watch for my wife. The price is just too low, compared to all the rest, for me to not question it. What do you guys think?

    Seems legit to me... Look at the watches listed under it as suggestions, right in line price-wise. Maybe just a seller liquidating some stock, too inexpensive a watch to warrant a fake I'd guess, though they make fakes of just about everything under the sun, but again, my opinion is you're fine. Good luck, if you do pull the trigger let us know how it looks upon arrival!

    Looks like the real deal. Actually seems like a good price for it.

    I don't think Amazon sells replicas. Looks like a great deal for your lady.
    “This is a Roche Vouceau. The thinnest water-resistant watch in the world. Singularly unique, sculptured in design, hand-crafted in Switzerland, and water resistant to THREE atmospheres. It tells time simultaneously in Monte Carlo, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Rome, and Gstaad. This is ‘THE’ sports watch of the ’80s. Six thousand, nine hundred and fifty five dollars retail.”

    It's an old model being sold by a (reputable) grey marketer. Victorinox has been using the name Victorinox Swiss Army since 2008-ish, so anything marked simply "Swiss Army" is older than that. They want to move the brand up-market, so these discontinued older models seems like comparative bargains.

    I ordered that watch yesterday from either the same seller or from ewatches (don;t remember which). I also ordered a black-face old model "Swiss Army" from a private seller. I like the brand at their old price points.

    Even with the prices going up, that's still a good deal on an all Swiss made watch.

    My only reservation is the mineral crystal instead of sapphire. But at this price point, I guess you can't realistically expect to get sapphire as well.
