Victorinox Alliance: Advocates of Beauty and Strength

It is highly unusual for a household brand to enter the watchmaking industry—let alone a cutlery company. Despite such circumstances, however, Victorinox managed to successfully introduce a robust and functional watch using a fairly vintage design. The Victorinox Alliance watch collection may not be as well-recognized as other more established watch brands, but it still more than delivers on the basic timekeeping needs. As bizarre as it may seem, Victorinox’s expertise in crafting Swiss Army knives proved to be a true asset in their creation of this collection. This is especially since the Victorinox Alliance leans more towards being a utility tool rather than just a basic watch.

How Much is a Victorinox Alliance Watch?

The Victorinox Alliance was never intended to be a luxury watch, nor does it aim to be. That said, the price of each watch does not exceed $1,000 USD despite the brand’s popularity with the masses. The Victorinox Alliance collection brings together the classic watch design that has been well-loved by many over the years with the robust functions of a handy utility watch. There is little doubt that, despite being new to the game, Victorinox has perfectly pulled off this fresh take on watchmaking.

That being said, here are some notable Victorinox Alliance watches that are worth considering.

Victorinox Alliance

To start, the Victorinox Alliance collection’s first watch carried the same moniker as the collection itself. The Victorinox Alliance is as simple as it can be with its overall dial design and case. The watch offers a range of dial and case colors: the dial comes in a range of white, black, blue, and dark grey colors, and these can be complemented by either a polished rose gold or silver stainless steel case. On the dial, you can find simple indicators such as the hour, minute and second hands as well as the pointed hour markings. The date aperture is found at the standard 3 o’clock position next to the hour index. 

The 40mm case is made of 316L stainless steel that offers a fair amount of durability, which ensures the Victorinox Alliance can take a few knocks around. Not only that, this case allows the watch to have a 100m water resistance which is a huge plus for a utility watch.  The Victorinox Alliance watch is also equipped with an analog quartz movement to keep it as straightforward as possible.

The price for the Victorinox Alliance varies from $425 USD up to $495 USD depending on the variant of the case and bracelet type. It is a simple watch with a design that is somewhat reminiscent of vintage watches—making it perfect for daily use or as a dress watch.

Victorinox Alliance Small

The Victorinox Alliance Small, as the name suggests, is a smaller version of the Victorinox Alliance watch, with a few other minor changes. With its smaller and slimmer stature, the Alliance Small is geared towards women rather than men. Instead of the usual 40mm case, the Victorinox Alliance Small is enclosed in a 35mm case made from 316L stainless steel. It may be 5mm smaller, but the design offers a unique take that gives the watch more of a feminine aura. The indications on the dial are the same, with only the date aperture being moved to the 6 o’clock position and taking on a circular shape.

One notable variant of the Victorinox Alliance Small which is the Victorinox Alliance Small Moon Phase model. This timepiece combines the features of the original Alliance Small with a moon phase indicator. The Alliance Small Moon Phase has a more elegant undertone due to the addition of the moon phase dial. With this new feature, the price for this particular model is a little more expensive than the original Alliance Small watch, which ranges from $375 USD up to $575 USD. The price range for the Moon Phase variant starts at $450 USD and can go as high as $585 USD depending on the case and bracelet design. 

Victorinox Alliance XS

Victorinox also made an even smaller version of the Alliance watch that brandishes a petite stature compared to the Alliance Small watch. The Victorinox Alliance XS is also marketed towards women with its slender 28mm stainless steel case and a slimmer bracelet to go with it. The Alliance XS is a lightweight timepiece that adheres more to comfort, which is highlighted by its incredibly light net weight of 2.4oz. The dainty, feminine demeanour of this watch is largely based on its size. The hour markings are changed into numerals and the date aperture is no longer present on the dial. These changes were necessary to retain the watch’s minimalistic nature while also prioritizing clarity and cleanness in the dial design.

The price for the Victorinox Alliance XS ranges from $375 USD to $475 USD which depends on the variation you opt for. It is a versatile women’s watch that can either be used as a dress watch or for casual wear.

Victorinox Alliance Mechanical

Victorinox stepped up its game with the development of a watch with a mechanical movement. The Victorinox Alliance Mechanical is the only watch model in the collection that is equipped with an automatic calibre movement. Sporting the original design of the Victorinox Alliance watch, the Alliance Mechanical makes use of its mechanical movement to create a modified look. This model has a see-through case back that boldly shows how its ETA 2892 movement functions. Plus, the 40mm stainless steel case is used to provide durability and 100m of water resistance to protect the totality of the watch. The ETA 2892 calibre movement also comes with a 42-hour power reserve. It may not be a lot, but it is still a lengthy duration—especially for the likes of Victorinox.

As for the dial, the Victorinox Alliance Mechanical uses a particular pattern which is known as a three-dimensional dial. This adds a refined design that is accented by the numerical hour markings on the dial. The date aperture is located at the 6 o’clock position, and is outlined by either silver or gold, depending on the colour variant of the watch you select.  The price of the Victorinox Alliance Mechanical ranges from $595 USD to $695 USD—a little pricey compared to the other Alliance watches, but still quite affordable nonetheless.

Victorinox Alliance Chronograph

The Victorinox Alliance Chronograph offers a sporty look that deviates from the classic design of the Alliance collection. Despite being a chronograph watch, Victorinox still adopted the usual analog quartz movement instead of a mechanical movement like in the Alliance Mechanical watch. That said, even with a quartz movement, the Alliance Chronograph still functions seamlessly with its three subdials. This watch features a Day-of-the-Week subdial, which is part of its three chronograph sub-dials. The date aperture is located at the 6 o’clock position and goes hand-in-hand with the day-of-the-week subdial feature. All of these features are enclosed in a hefty 44mm stainless steel case that offers the same optimal durability found on other Victorinox Alliance watch models. The Victorinox Alliance Chronograph possesses resistance to water up to depths of 100m, which is a staple in the Alliance collection.

The price for the Victorinox Alliance Chronograph is $419 USD. It is quite a steep price, but still cheaper than the Alliance Mechanical watch.

Victorinox Alliance History and Design Details

As mentioned before, Victorinox is far from being a full-blown watchmaking brand. Victorinox may be popular for its high-quality Swiss Army knives and other tools, but the introduction of a watch collection was quite an unforeseen event. That said, Victorinox still managed to surprise watch enthusiasts with their well-made timepieces that are both reliable and good-looking. With the Alliance collection, Victorinox aimed for a classic design to entice the majority of watch fans. These designs are considered foolproof when it comes to gaining the approval of the general public. Compared to the other watch collections that Victorinox has introduced over the years, the Alliance watches lean more on minimalistic and refined designs. This is to better expand Victorinox’s reach in watchmaking, instead of just focusing on sports or survivalist watches—which are closer to the context of the Victorinox brand.

Five Reasons to Buy a Victorinox Alliance Watch

  • The Victorinox Alliance offers classic designs that are perfect for both casual and formal outfits.
  • The price range of the Alliance collection is very affordable, at under $1000 USD.
  • The Victorinox Alliance watch collection prioritizes legibility, comfort, and reliability.
  • There is a diverse range of color variants to choose from, regardless of which model you’re interested in. Leather straps and stainless steel bracelets can also be swapped to accommodate preferences.
  • The Victorinox Alliance watch models come in a variety of sizes that offer versatility along with refined design features.

Victorinox Alliance: Reliability Masked with Elegance

As random as it may seem, Victorinox did not disappoint with the Alliance watch collection. Compared to the Maverick, Ariboss, and Fieldforce collections, the Alliance line offers a more distinct, classic design that sets it apart from the usual sporty watch designs of Victorinox. For a brand that mainly manufactures knives and survival kits, Victorinox really nailed the vintage look that is widely popular in the watchmaking scene. The Victorinox Alliance watch collection is the perfect versatile watch with an affordable price tag and a sleek design scheme.
