Swiss watches are known to combine elegance with technical advancements. Victorinox Night Vision is yet another such swiss army watch. It’s a good value watch with high build quality. With 11 LEDs tucked inside its case,making it glow in dark. The dial visibility is really good. Hands and numerals are also coated with luminescent paint. LEDs are 3 in colors:White,Blue and Red. White LED for prolonged illumination mode,signal and intense signal. Blue LED for the back-light mode dial. Red LED for user location and end of life of the battery. A button on the left side of the gunmetal gray steel case. Push it once and the dial is illuminated in a bright cool eye-pleasing blue light at 12 o’clock. Push it twice and an LED at the top of the watch casts a piercing white beam out in front, enough to light a trail, a driveway or a dark closet. The light stays on for two minutes, or until you press the button one more time. Press and hold the button and you get a flashing strobe, perfect for signaling a friend in a dark forest or across a lake. And the final is the pulsating super-bright strobe for intense signalling. Three hands and date are driven by a Ronda quartz 705 movement. It won’t lose more than 10 sec or gain more than 20 sec per month. The Night Vision uses 2 batteries to separately power the quartz movement and light functions. This beauty has a stainless steel housing with PVD coating and 42 mm diameter and a screw-in steel back case. The dial is covered by 4 mm thick sapphire crystal (a feature usually found only in expensive watches) imparting exceptional scratch resistance. Water resistance capacity to 5 ATM/50 meters/166 Feet. Strapping comes either in rubber or stainless steel bracelet.
