Durability is often a key requirement of the things we use. We want it to last and continue the job it was brought to do. Victorinox have along tradition in making things last and are useful in equal measure. The new I.N.O.X. Carbon Mechanical is one such example of Swiss watchmaking and performance-driven durability – all within a stylish Swiss timepiece package.
Made from a carbon composite material that usually protects space shuttles from re-entry temperatures that exceed 1,260°C, the I.N.O.X. Carbon Mechanical now brings the same material to the wrist of the discerning gent. With a 43mm titanium back case featuring a triple-coated anti-reflective sapphire crystal cover protecting the Guilloché monobloc dial in dark tones to complement carbon hues, it has the rugged feel and masculine stature required to look the part. If the situation requires, the timepiece is supplied with a rubber bumper to place over the top of the case, bringing the ruggedness up a few notches more.
Powering this beast is the Sellita SW-200 Swiss-made movement that drives the luminated hands past markers, whilst the rubber strap continues the rugged theme. As one might expect, the I.N.O.X. Carbon Mechanical is water-resistant to 200m. It’s the kind of watch the discerning gent might wear to make a modern statement of intent during the urban commuter or exploring the concreate jungle metropolis at lunchtimes.
