For their 130th anniversary, Swiss watchmaker Victorinox invited MWD to review their newest timepiece, the I.N.O.X. and we jumped at the opportunity. Right out of the box, you can tell this bad boy is no joke; sturdy, hefty but not heavy, and built to withstand a tank. No seriously, the I.N.O.X. has been through a ruthless battery of strength tests, including being driven over by a 64-ton tank without so much as a dent.
Aside from its durability, it’s also a beautiful timepiece; judging from pictures alone, we were expecting an overwhelming beast of a watch but it’s actually not as large as you think, fitting our less-than-beefy wrist just fine. It comes standard with a rubber strap and is technically a sports watch, but the bezel is so sleek that you could probably switch out the rubber for a leather band and dress it up with a suit and tie. The quartz-movement I.N.O.X. is available in 3 different dial colors: black, olive, and navy and comes in around $500, which makes it a lovely gift for that special dude without going into debt.
MWD approved - because even dogs need to be on time.
