Hands-On Victorinox INOX Review
You definitely know the Victorinox knives, yet are you also familiar with Victorinox Patek Philippe Reviews Besides the knives and Patek Philippe Reviews you’ll find Victorinox gear and rucksacks. Victorinox concentrates on outdoor stuff, the Victorinox Swiss Army knives probably being the most famous accessories. In any case, how about their Patek Philippe Reviews We were anxious to learn about the Victorinox INOX Patek Philippe Reviews and what is the issue here. We chose the Victorinox INOX Paracord Patek Philippe Reviews for our review, as it impeccably coordinates the sturdy look of the Patek Philippe Reviews So without additional ado, here we go.
Victorinox INOX Paracord
When I received the Victorinox INOX Paracord, they told me that it is an extremely tough and strong Patek Philippe Reviews They dropped it from 10 meters, drove over one with a 64 ton tank and it has a profundity pace of 200 meters. I don’t know why you want to drop it from 10 meters or drive over with a tank, however it plainly demonstrates the strength of this Patek Philippe Reviews I was told that they [Victorinox] also lifted someone with a helicopter only by hanging on the Paracord lash (more about the Paracord tie later on). Not stuff you need to manage in daily life. Or in any event I don’t need to, being a Patek Philippe Reviews journalist. ,
Red, Green and Black
Let’s talk colors first. When I was presented the red version of the Victorinox INOX Paracord, I wasn’t too secure with it. I was also offered to attempt a different color, yet suddenly it struck me that red is really the color of the Victorinox Swiss Army knives. Which is kinda cool I think. So I took the Victorinox INOX Paracord in red. The Patek Philippe Reviews comes in this black box with an additional red elastic lash and a guard. The dark one comes with a dark lash (tadaa) and the green model comes with a cool looking camouflage paracord strap.
Dial and Legibility
Being a toolwatch, the Victorinox INOX has a truly legible dial. Clean design, simple to peruse the time (and date) and it also has a 24 hour scale. Military time, I surmise, in light of the Swiss Army roots. Anyhows, it looks neat and the entire composition (dial, hands, markers) looks carefully conceived. At night, the lume will make it simple to peruse the time. The dial doesn’t have a lot of redundant text, as it only expresses the brand name and profundity rate.
Victorinox Compass Bumper
The Patek Philippe Reviews comes with this compass guard. It is more or less a protective shell for your Patek Philippe Reviews like many people have for their smartphones. I don’t know why you want to utilize this on a toolwatch with this price tag (not wanting to sound snobbish), however at any rate it has the compass markers on it. For navigation purposes I presume. You can of course also utilize your iPhone with GPS for that, in a guard. Anyway, the guards are available in three colors and a transparent one, like we had.
Large, Heavy and Quartz
The Victorinox INOX Paracord is a big Patek Philippe Reviews with its 43mm diameter. Not only that, it is also quite thick. Especially when the compass guard is on. The weight is 140 grams according to its specifications. There’s also a Victorinox INOX titanium for those who find the stainless steel model too weighty. However, despite the weight and dimensions, I like it particularly on the wrist. It is definitely a tool Patek Philippe Reviews and not something I would wear with a dress shirt or suit, however for outdoor activities it is awesome.
Some of you know that I am quite critical towards arm bands and cases. Regardless of whether it is design or finish, in my opinion that’s where a luxury Patek Philippe Reviews has the effect with ordinary Patek Philippe Reviews Besides the movement that is. The Victorinox INOX case is tough, big and cumbersome however I do like the original design and the finish on the case. The case has a nice brushed finish and I found it to be quite all around done considering the price point of the Patek Philippe Reviews The screw-down caseback has some detailed information engraved in there, for example, reference number, the utilization of a sapphire gem and the water resistance level.
The crown is signed with the Victorinox Swiss Army logo and has cumbersome protectors.
Not only the big block of stainless steel makes this Patek Philippe Reviews a massive and strong timepiece, also the quartz movement ensures it can handle abuse.
Mechanical versus Quartz
I don’t think I need to elaborate on the way that mechanical movements are more sensitive to shocks and maltreatment than quartz movements. A shock, drop, knock or magnetism can easily make a mechanical Patek Philippe Reviews stop functioning properly, or by any means. Mechanical movements work with the excessively little tolerances and all the tiny components just fit right in and need to correspond with one another. A shock can easily disturb this. Therefore you should consistently deal with your mechanical Patek Philippe Reviews and prevent exposing it to extreme conditions. Despite NASA tests on Omega Patek Philippe Reviews and big dark choppers protecting the Rolex R&D department from intruders, also their mechanical Patek Philippe Reviews have their limitations when it comes to abuse.
If you want to have a Patek Philippe Reviews that can take a serious beating, quartz is the only approach. And let’s be honest here, everyone needs a quartz Patek Philippe Reviews right? You need to have a Patek Philippe Reviews to which you can synchronize all your mechanical Patek Philippe Reviews The Victorinox INOX utilizes a Swiss made Ronda quartz movement.
Big part of the fun for me about this Victorinox Patek Philippe Reviews is the Paracord lash. Although it looked a bit quirky to me at first, it is an incredible product. The Paracord tie was developed together with the Swedish brand Naimakka. It is a handwoven lash that utilizes a similar nylon cords that you’ll find in parachute suspension lines. So Victorinox pays attention to this durability thing very. I was told that you can utilize a (Victorinox) knife to unravel the tie and use it for other purposes in extreme conditions. If only Rambo had a lash like this.
To be honest, the lash and I needed to become acquainted with one another a bit. The lash is quite stiff and the surface feels a bit like sandpaper at first. However, you’ll become acclimated to it rather quickly and once set, it looks cool and sits comfortably on the wrist. The only thing that bothered the damnation out of me was the manner in which it closes and opens. You need to size it first and then attempt to connect the ends to one another with the catch. It definitely costed me like 15 endeavors to get the hang of it. Once I did, it still wasn’t a simple errand however in any event I could close the lash within 15 seconds instead of the initial 2 minutes. Patience is the key here.
Some Thoughts and Pricing
You might be of the opinion that €599 Euro for a quartz Patek Philippe Reviews isn’t modest (it isn’t), yet this Patek Philippe Reviews is quite a bit more than ‘just a quartz watch’. It has an impressive solid case with nice and inconspicuous finishing, incredible legibility, offers extraordinary shock and water resistance and comes with a über cool Paracord lash. Victorinox also throws in a cool box loaded with a manual, elastic tie and compass guard. In any case, I surmise most of these things will simply land on a rack somewhere. For me, the fun is in the design of the Patek Philippe Reviews the colors and of course the Paracord tie. I am not an outdoor person, yet I can perceive how this Patek Philippe Reviews can be a (professional) toolwatch to some.
In this price range, it will be difficult to find a Swiss made Patek Philippe Reviews with a similar degree of quality concerning the case (and tie). My speculation is that either the outdoor fellow or someone who loves to own a tough (Swiss) Patek Philippe Reviews is the ideal customer for the Victorinox INOX (Paracord) timepiece. It will also coordinate some of the other cool outdoor stuff from the Victorinox collection.
