About Victorinox:

Victorinox was founded by Karl Elsener in 1884, in the city of Ibach, in the Canton of Schwyz, in Switzerland. The brand is an independent family owned company. Victorinox is first and foremost famous for its legendary Swiss Army Knife.

The original commercial idea of Victorinox was to manufacture high quality pocket knives for the Swiss army. It wasn’t until 1989, that Victorinox launched its first watches.

About Victorinox Swiss Army Alpnach:

Victorinox Swiss Army Alpnach is a collection of highly robust water resistant sports and racing watches with a water resistance of 100 meters/330 feet. Even though divers watches are expected to have a minimum water resistance of 100 meters/330 feet, the Alpnach isn’t a full fledged divers watch.

The Alpnach is a more upscale collection within the Victorinox brand, and the prices that can be found in the Alpnach collection are unusally high by Victorinox’s standards.
