Victorinox Alliance Sport Chronograph
Everyone who has ever used a Swiss Army Knife before knows just how remarkable the craftsmanship of the multi-use pocket knife is. This Swiss know-how is equally present in the Alliance Sport Chronograph, Victorinox’s extra-bold and a super-sleek wristwatch that can be a venerable accessory to formal gatherings as well as a trusted companion in one’s adventures.
Ready to take on anything that Mother Nature can dish out, the Alliance comes with a tachymeter-scale bezel that should keep any sports enthusiast up to speed with his performance. The spirit of the Swiss Army knife is also strong in the Alliance. The markers and stopwatch needle counterweight all exude with elements from the venerable pocket knife. It’s a good watch to complement one’s pocket EDC.
Forming the case is high-grade stainless steel forged from the foundries high up in the Swiss Alps. The date window has been repositioned between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions while triple subdials provide a different window to the Alliance’s hour, minute, and seconds chronographic functions.
The Alliance comes with a premium-grade sapphire crystal that has been triple-coated with an anti-reflective material to give you unparalleled views of both time and speed. The surface of the glass is designed to be scratch-resistant as well.
Holding the Alliance around the wrist is the job of premium genuine brown leather, a welcome feature in a world where majority of wristwatch straps come in either rubber or stainless-steel materials. It’s a piece of luxury that Victorinox is known for.
With an analog quartz movement, the Alliance timepiece of Victorinox is not just a sports chronograph. It is a worthy piece to have when you go to a ball or the office, although its true essence can be realized best when you head outdoors, just like its trusted cousin the Swiss Army knife.
