The Swiss Army brand has been around for a long time and has become very well respected and known for providing quality products. The swiss army watch is not as widely known about as the knife. In Switzerland beauty, precision and elegance are elements of the products produced. The Swiss government is involved in the Swiss Army brand ensuring that the products meet these standards.

There are many different Swiss Army watches for the consumer to choose from. This is not the case in some other watch companies. The watches available offer different features for the user. Some of them are waterproof and allow the user to dive one hundred meters underwater while wearing it. There are other watches that have the ability to change time according to the daylights savings schedule. The styles of the watches available vary greatly. Some are elegant and meant to be worn on formal occasions while others are much more casual and able to be worn on any occasion. No matter what your preference or needs may be it is easy to find the right watch for anyone.

These watches have a distinguishing mark on them. It is a white cross on top of a red background. This logo is also used on the company's knife selections. It is widely recognized and is seen as a mark of an excellent product. The Swiss Army company has been around for a long time. Recently it celebrated 125 years of doing business. This celebration was to acknowledge the progress and success of the company as well as the bight future waiting for it.

Every few years the Swiss Army company releases a special edition watch. These come in both womens and mens varieties. The amount of these watches created is very small at only about 200 per model. This creates a spike in demand for them and causes the prices to sky rocket.

The Swiss Army company accommodates for this. The watches made for women are trendy and fashionable. These watches, like the men's, have the white cross logo printed on it.

A watch from this company is created with adventure in mind. This is why there are so many features available to help in outdoor situations. They are waterproof which allows them to be used most anywhere. There are many watch models with a light that can be turned on to see the time or other information.

      Hi. Thanks. I love the fact that there is such a strong tradition in Switzerland for watches and that some companies such as Blancpain won't even make a quartz watch because they believe in the old way of doing things.

      Great hub. My dad loves watches, so I was thinking about getting him a Swiss Army Watch. Interesting to learn that they have never created a digital watch.
