Victorinox is a well-known, innovative watch brand that is increasingly popular across the watch market. This is a watch brand that stands out for its bold creations, distinct designs and durability. It was only a few months ago that this brand released more watches with survival capabilities, constructed with a paracord strap. This is one of the signature features of the brand, as well as their testing methods which includes driving a tank over their new models!
For their latest release, Victorinox has gone the extra mile, this time creating a watch that is as touch as one of Nasa‘s space shuttles! If you happen to find yourself travelling through the earth’s atmosphere anytime soon, this is the watch you should take with you. The case is made from carbon composite which has been used to protect space shuttles from temperatures as high as 1260°C!
It is not the first time that Victorinox has created a model that has come in handy when it comes to space travel. Back in 1997, the paracord that is a feature of many Victorinox watches was used by astronauts as they carried out an in-space repair of the Hubble telescope. The paracord has loading abilities of up to 250kg!
