Airboss Mechanical Limited Edition

Function visibly fuels design in the Victorinox Airboss collection. The deep-rooted inspiration of early pilot watches again takes flight in two new Swiss made timepieces, each in a limited edition of 250 pieces. Mechanically driven and technically minded, they reach for the sky in terms of edgy appearance and true-grit performance. Their fil rouge is the color blue, which instantly signals refinement and modernity. Eye-catching looks harbor dependable and accessible functionality day and night, in the air and on the ground. Being named after the flight deck controller of an aircraft carrier sets the bar extremely high.

Confirming the wearer’s personal identification with his treasured possession from the flagship Airboss collection, every piece is numbered and “quartered” in an exclusive presentation box. They simultaneously pay tribute to the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmaking, with meticulous attention to detail, and the limitless nature of the ocean and sky. Their deep blue dials host easily readable white digits and a date calendar at 6 o’clock. The readability of the hands and numerals in darkness is supported by Super-LumiNova®. Military time printed in red beneath the sapphire glass echoes the aviation spirit with its apparent elevation. And for a 360° view of watchmaking, the Swiss movement that constitutes the engine of the watch can be seen at work thanks to a see-through case back.

A special grinding treatment gives the 42 mm stainless steel cases of both watches a subtly industrial tone, underlining the statement of durability. A version with a comfortable dark blue fabric strap, enhanced with details of red stitching, has a distinctly sporty look and feel. Alternatively, teaming the blue dial with a stainless steel bracelet offers a more traditional take. Power to the wrist – and to its owner.
