When the Swiss Army Knife had the challenges of life on earth covered, it extended its reach to include space and the daily adventures of astronauts. With this inspiring parent on its radar, Victorinox Swiss Army headed for elevated heights with its I.N.O.X. Titanium Sky High Limited Edition timepiece. Rocket scientist-approved parachute cordage and space-walk attire navigated the design process for the latest addition to the adventure-loving watch collection. The result is a trusted timekeeping tool that confirms the absence of any final frontiers from the ingrained I.N.O.X. pledge to function reliably under absolutely any circumstances.
The countdown to the launch of the new I.N.O.X. Titanium watch comprised 130 product-specific durability tests, anuncompromising pre-requisite for membership of the family. This impressive checklist embraced extreme resistance to the elements, from exposure to repeated thermal shocks, with temperature variations in excess of 60º C, to conditions endured at an altitude of 21,300 meters, twice the cruising height of an airliner. The extraterrestrial inspiration behind the I.N.O.X.
Sky High finds expression in an innovative Naimakka paracord attachment, in white and speckled black, with Technora® inner strings. This para-aramid fiber, eight times stronger than steel, contributes its own galactic endorsement of direct involvement in a robotic rover landing on Mars. Paracord has also been used to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. The combination of the white elements and matt grey sandblasted, highly resistant titanium is reminiscent of astronauts’ outfits. Then it’s time to “put your helmet on”, represented by a transparent, magnifying bumper. This shield-like cover is included with every piece and ensures that everyday adventures only leave behind ingrained memories and not scratches. Further aviation-triggered accents in the proudly function-driven design are red military time printed beneath the crystal, three easily legible, stamped numerals and a planet-earth blue second hand.
Each of the 2,000 pieces of the I.N.O.X. Titanium Sky High Limited Edition comes in its own time capsule box. This shockproof, waterproof receptacle is a survival treasure chest. It contains a white rubber strap with a blue- and a red colored loop. This is an extremely attractive Plan B should the paracord one have been removed to create a supersonic parachute, or to make way for a different style statement. There is also a special edition white Swiss Army Knife with an astronaut metal inlay and paracord keyring. This is a replica of the red knife that has served as astronaut’s standard equipment and is proudly displayed in the Victorinox museum. I.N.O.X. continues undaunted on its mission to make one giant watchmaking
leap after another. Never losing contact with Ground Control of course.
