Victorinox Timepieces launched today a cool Facebook Game. To support the revamp of their almost historical ORIGINAL Collection, they invite you to a simple and “friendly”game.

We all remember the first Original that made the first big hit for Victorinox in the watch business. Every young guy in the USA would start his “adult” life with the Swiss Army watch on the wrist!

More than 15 years later, Victorinox revealed a revamped ORIGINAL COLLECTION. The spirit remains with modernity and Design on top ! 4 colors from Grey, Beige, Green and Black.

I would expect a Red one, especially the success of their DiveMaster500. But these colors are very elegant and rejuvenates the entire Brand. Do I want one of them? I want the 4!

So, I discovered this afternoon that they launched a Facebook game, that I must say is very nice to play and we can win these beauties.

Note that you will need a Facebook account. The Facebook App was done by the Web and Marketing Agency Co&Co. They have already worked for Victorinox in different previous operations.

About the watch itself, it is a nice, elegant piece. According to the Brand: “Easy to read, simple and direct in design and shape, the Original has, in just over twenty years, become a Victorinox Swiss Army icon. Freshly updated with very contemporary aesthetics – redesign of the synthetic compound middle case, aluminum bezel and color block treatment – the Original yet remains instantly recognizable as the authentic descendent of the line.”
