The Original holds a special place in the history of the brand. It is the very first Victorinox model introduced in the United States in 1989. Since then, the Original model, characterized by simplicity, assertive design, top quality, and durability, has always been featured in the catalog, having become a true icon.
The new Original watch is now presented in two versions :
- a three-hand version with a date window, equipped with a Ronda quartz movement.
- a chronograph version with three central hands, three sub-dials, a date window found at 4 o’clock, animated by an ETA quartz chronograph movement.
The case construction incorporates a brushed aluminum bezel accentuating the trendy look of the watch. The central seconds hand stands out due to its delicate orange color. While the older versions of the Original watch were coupled with a NATO fiber strap, the new Original watch is teamed with a stylish two-piece leather strap, while the Original Chronograph watch is presented on a three-piece strap.
With both models, you can wear the natural leather strap in the traditional way, or adding a cuff that fits over the base strap with two loops.
The 40mm dark grey case is sculptured in ultra-shock-proof nylon characterized by supreme lightness. The crown protection proves that the watch can withstand harsh conditions.
The dial guarantees great legibility. It is completed with oversized indexes and numerals that are recessed and covered with luminescent material.
The new Victorinox Original and Original Chronograph watches are 100-meter water-resistant. The novelties are available starting this spring.
