Completely designed, developed and produced in the Swiss Jura, where Victorinox Swiss Army has a new and enlarged production facility, the Réserve de Marche Platine is the very first model of a new collection named Legacy. It is an extremely limited edition that consists of no more than 60 pieces. With this exquisite timepiece dedicated to the company’s Swiss heritage, Victorinox Swiss Army is entering an even higher level of watchmaking.
The Réserve de Marche Platine, the initial model from Victorinox’s Legacy line of watches, has a mechanical self-winding movement with a power reserve indicator (“Réserve de Marche” in French), decorated with “Côtes de Genève” and “Perlage” finishes. In accordance with its continuous desire to insure the maximum functionality, Victorinox presents the new Valgranes automatic movement in a size of 16 ½ inches, specifically chosen for its outstanding rewinding effectiveness.
Luxury and Functionality
The case of this luxurious timepiece is made of platinum and rubber and has 43 millimeters in diameter. The choice of these materials reflects the design philosophy of Victorinox Swiss Army. The ultra-rare platinum is 30 times scarcer than gold. It is also two times heavier for the same volume. Platinum has a notable resistance to chemicals and high temperatures. To meet the demands of active modern lifestyle, the most exposed parts – the bezel, the crown and the horns are covered with genuine rubber.
This extraordinary timepiece from Victorinox Swiss Army has triple-coated scratch-resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystals on both sides of its case. The black PVD dial features large luminous white numbers. The inside of the dial is sapphire and it displays a 46 hours power reserve indicator which shows if there is enough mechanical energy to power this marvelous Victorinox Swiss Army watch for men.
The Réserve de Marche Platine watch includes the choice of two straps. If you buy this luxurious timepiece, you can choose between a high-end, dark brown hand-sewn leather band (with contrast stitching) and a specially tailored black rubber strap. This Victorinox Swiss Army timepiece is water resistant to 100 meters and has a price that matches its quality – $19,500.
