    Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Automatic (Basel World '18)

    Victorinox is the same company that makes those iconic Swiss army knives. The original INOX watch was in quartz for around $200, but they announced an automatic version for October. I've always wanted an automatic version.

    Thoughts? What do you like and dislike about it?

    I share your feelings. I love the design of the watch but wasn’t a fan of the quartz. I may have to check out the automatic option. It’s a unique and robust look with a good name behind it.

    I really want to like both versions, and I know why they've done it, but just can't get past the ridiculous, steroid-induced crown guards. No need for crown guards except on a dive watch, and maybe not even then... The squared off case near the lugs is also a turn off for me.

    Victorinox makes a damn good watch for the money if you buy right. I've had a few peices move through the collection and I've always been impressed with the quality and the detail in the dials given the price point. I'm also a longtime fan on the brand in general and carry a Swisstool Spirit daily as my multi-tool.

    I owned an INOX in OD green and liked it quite a bit, but sold it off at a point when I was limiting the quartz watches in my collection to G-Shocks. I was glad to hear that they released an auto version this year and I look forward to seeing some real life pics and reviews. I'm not sure if it would be for me, but I definitely find it to be an interesting and certainly respectable watch.

    They do have this iconic image about them but they're not all that impressive when comparing them to other knives frankly, & that's before factoring in the low-end stainless they use and the low HRC they give to it. Their watches are of a much better quality imo.

    Proud owner of the quartz INOX on bracelet over here. It has really grown on me. It is very large and chunky which gets in the way sometimes, but I brought her on vacation recently as my only watch and it was really nice to be able to wear it while jet skiing in the lake, ATVing, shooting guns, and running around with my little god son. It's as durable as they come! Also, I have gotten a couple compliments on how nice it is, which is more than I can say about my other watches. Does need better lume, though.

    Main reason I was thinking of getting it was for vacationing. All I have as a beater is my casio.. but that doesn't look that nice in the vacation photos . I didn't even realize it had a little lume. I just assumed it didn't because it was army inspired, and some lume could get you shot .

    Decent watches if you get them at a good discount. I still wonder why a watch that they tout as nearly indestructible comes with a protective rubber bumper.
