Swiss Army Victoria Diamond Watch
When you think "Swiss Army watch" you don't tend to think of a lady's timepiece. For years Swiss Army has offered attractive but decidedly 'handsome" women's watches. For 2011 Victorinox Swiss Army's Victoria Diamond is a new type of "Army" watch with a more delicate feminine demeanor.

The steel case design reminds me a bit of the Omega Constellation, while the bracelet again is a bit masculine, but tastefully so. The bezel is decorated with 56 full-cut diamond (around 0.38 carats), leaving the dial a bit more stark. There are only a four hour indicators, but the face is decorated with textured off-center sunburst. It makes the Swiss Army logo look like it is lost in a desert full of sand dunes.

As a Swiss Army watch the piece is durable. It has 100 meters of water resistance, an AR coated sapphire crystal, and hardy Swiss quartz movement. The idea of the piece really seems to be blending the functional values of the brand with a more elegant touch for women. Price is $1,495 and will be available soon.
