2009 marks a double jubilee for Victorinox! 125 years of unequalled success for its famous Swiss knife and 20 years since it introduced its very first watch. Swiss, of course. True to its values of functionality, ingenuity, reliability and efficiency, the emblematic Swiss Army brand offers a timepiece produced exclusively during this anniversary year. A real companion for life, it draws on its origins with the inclusion of a telemetric scale, a function used in the past in the artillery. This function has modern-day applications: for example, the distance of a storm can be determined by measuring the time between a flash of lightning and the ensuing clap of thunder.
