This rugged Victorinox INOX watch will withstand any abuse thrown at it.

Victorinox, a company with the status of a national treasure in Switzerland because of its most legendary product – the Swiss Army Knife – is celebrating its 130th anniversary in 2014.

To mark the occasion, Victorinox Swiss Army has created I.N.O.X., a new watch that pays tribute to the history and industrial know-how of the brand by showcasing the values that have made it famous: authenticity, strength, quality, expertise and Swiss design.

An exceptional celebration requires an exceptional watch. I.N.O.X. demonstrates a level of robustness never before achieved in watchmaking. Designed to withstand unusual stress, it has passed a ruthless battery of 130 strength tests.

Some of the I.N.O.X. tests were so extreme they merit special mention. An I.N.O.X. is tested to be capable of resisting:

Salt spray corrosion or chemical attacks by all kinds of fuels, oils, solvents, cleaning products, insecticides... including sulfuric and nitric acid solution. Again, a standard not for watches but for the military, borrowed from the US Army

8 tons compression under a hydraulic press - I.N.O.X. can also resist being driven over by a truck of 25 tons or a military tank weighing up to 64 tons

Temperatures shocks from -57 deg to +71 deg Celsius. This corresponds to the standard set by the US Army for the manufacture of missiles. Nothing comparable exists in the world of watchmaking

A fall of 10 meters onto a concrete surface. This is the equivalent of a drop from a 3-floor building. Impact speed from this distance is 50 kilometres per hour

Exposure to a flame at a distance of 5mm for more than one minute (+1200 deg C)

Two hours in a washing machine at 90 deg C with full spin cycle.

Glacial cold. The watch will function non-stop and without complaint, even when frozen in an ice cube for 168 hours

Extreme conditions at a stratospheric altitude of 21,300 meters, which is twice the height at which the airliners fly

Beyond the standard certification tests of the Swiss watch industry, this series of new tests was developed specifically for I.N.O.X. and reflect Victorinox Swiss Army’s passion for pushing boundaries and imposing new rules on resistance and quality.

This watch comes with the standard blue rubber strap, as well as a removable silicone and nylon bumper to further protect the watch beyond the abuse of the 130 tests given. ©
