Watch built to sur­vive almost anything!

Vic­tori­nox is cel­e­brat­ing its 130th anniversery with a watch that shares same unique val­ues of swiss Army Knife: Sturdy, durable and styl­ish. The watch is called I.N.O.X and accord­ing to Vic­tori­nox the watch has sur­vived above one hun­dred tough­ness tests and not just any tough­ness test, being run over by a 64– ton tank over a con­crete kind of tests. Heavy weight is not the only thing it can sur­vive, it has poten­tial to sur­vive harsh tem­per­a­tures up to 51° C to +71 ° C and it was even thrown in a sand­storm for cou­ple of hours.

The rea­son why the watch is so strong is due to its solid stain­less steel monobloc case, bulged shoul­ders around the crown and sap­phire crys­tal inset in it which pre­vents from head-on impacts. There is also an option of sil­i­con bumper which can be used to make it even more pro­tected against bru­tal sit­u­a­tions. Though it is quite tough but it is also quit big in size with a 43mm case. It will also sit high on wrist as it is quite thick and if you will be using nylon and sil­i­con bumper it will be quite vis­i­ble for sure.

 

Out of all tests 30 of them were designed to see if the watch is built to last or not and I.N.O.X sur­vived all of them. The watch will hap­pily sur­vive a 10 meter fall on a con­crete sur­face. It is water resis­tant up to 200m (660ft) mak­ing it per­fect for peo­ple who like some deep div­ing. Addi­tion­ally, in a test it also sur­vived cor­ro­sive chem­i­cals like sol­vent oils, clean­ing prod­ucts and gaso­line. This watch is per­fect for those manly peo­ple who like tough watches that can sur­vive their tough routine.

Apart from being a sturdy watch, I.N.O.X is also quite styl­ish with Swiss-made Rondo 715 quartz move­ment. Vic­tori­nox I.N.O.X comes with 3 dif­fer­ent color dials includ­ing black, green and blue. It keeps accu­rate time due to Swiss-made Rondo 715 quartz movement.

Vic­tori­nox has made some crit­i­cal design deci­sions to cre­ate this sturdy watch. They also solved the most com­mon prob­lem with watches that made them fail to sur­vive impacts. In most watch indexes are applied which is why the dial breaks due to hard impact but in I.N.O.X the indexes are actu­ally stamped to it which makes it tough enough to sur­vive a 64– ton tank.
