Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Watch|Gear Review

The Victorinox Swiss Army Inox is an attractive and durable sport-styled watch that is great for any outdoor activity, whether you’re rock climbing, traveling, hiking, boating, fishing, or camping.

A piece of paper, which states “Forged To Resist,” accompanies the INOX watch when you unbox it. This addresses its apparent capability of withstanding the harshest conditions. For example, it can resist sulfurate acid, withstand a 8-ton tank roll by, survive exposure to flame for more than 1 minute at +1200 degrees celsius, and preserve through a dead man’s drop fall of 10m onto a concrete service – not that any of these circumstances are likely to happen. It’s just good to know how strong the watch is and that it is made to be beat on.


A ton of time, research and development has gone into the INOX watch.  The links below have been added to show you some of the tests the company has recorded in order to demonstrate just how strong the watch can be when faced with intense physical impact.

The Victorinox Swiss Army Inox was released late last year during a huge PR event which celebrated 130 years of being in business for Victorinox. During that time, the company has continuously set its vision on creating products people love, just like the INOX. It’s not easy to take reliable and resourceful products to market that consumers will trust and use, so the reputation has been well earned.
