Victorinox Swiss Army Airboss Mechanical Black Dial Stainless Steel Bracelet Men’s Watch 241888 RRP £840The Case:

The case of this Victorinox Airboss 241888 is crafted from high-grade Swiss made stainless steel. It measures at 44mm in diameter and 11mm in height, positioning it within the mid to upper range sized timepieces. The case is home to a tachymeter bidirectional rotating bezel that displays a number of readings that include the following measurements: fuel lbs, liters, lbs, kg, us gal, and oil lbs. A tachymeter is one of the defining feature belonging to both the Omega Speedmaster and Rolex Daytona. It offers precision and reliability, of which are indispensable qualities belonging to an aviation watch. Also present on the case is an screw down crown that is present besides the 3 o’clock mark. The automatic movement is visible through the the open case back of the watch.

The Dial:

As a watch thats intention is to serve a practical purpose in the air, it comes as no surprise the dial simple, yet effective. Firstly, a stylised Swiss Army style font has been utilised for the raised Arabic numeral hour markers, each of which have been coated in lume. Similarly, the dauphine style hands offer peerless levels of legibility, as they are also luminescent. A date window replaces the 6 o’clock mark, likewise the Victorinox logo replaces the 12 o’clock marker.

The black dial features a subtle guilloche design that forms a loped flange ring around the edge of the dial. In turn this creates a level of depth, that is made more visible through the reheat which is also home to the circular slide rule. Upon closer inspection it becomes apparent that the red 24-hour scale is actually printed on the rear of the flat sapphire crystal, a high-contrast is created by the black back ground of the dial. Moreover, this makes the 24-hour scale float on top of the dial and actually bisect the date window, this bestows a certain uniqueness on to the watch.

The Bracelet:

Perhaps the most alluring feature of this timepiece is the jubilee style stainless steel bracelet. This style was first introduced in 1945 for Rolex’s 40th anniversary – it premiered on the Datejust, one of Rolex’s most renowned dress watches. It is characterised by three narrow, highly polished links situated between the thick, matte finish side links. It fastens using a deployment clasp.

The Functions: 

One of the most appealing features of this Airboss is the Swiss-made Sellita SW0 that is visible through the translucent exhibition case back. It offers a 38-hour power reserve. Sellita is an alternative to ETA, Sellita’s strengths is its in-house, cutting-edge expertise. It boasts dedicated engineering, process engineering, machinery development, and movement development departments.

The Brand: Victorinox

Victorinox Swiss Army defines itself by the spirit of innovation and sustainability. Responsibly meeting the needs of the present – and ensuring that future generations will be able to meet theirs – requires innovative thinking of an unprecedented scale.

Robustness, durability and quality are the key requests. The brand first came to fruition in 1884 when Karl Elsener opened a cutlery workshop in Ibach, with the support of his mother Victoria.

The union is founded with the company supplying soldiers knives, which would later be famously known as the Swiss army knife. Following the death of his mother the brand became known as Victorinox, combining his mothers name and the word ‘inox’, an abbreviation for the French word inoxydable or stainless.

In 1989 the brand first launched its first watch collection produced in Biel, Switzerland. Today, the brand is built upon four key values; quality, functionality, innovation & iconic design.
