According to Victorinox, GMT is the ideal complication for long- distance travelers. The Infantry GMT is equipped with a quartz movement and available with a steel mesh bracelet or an ecologically tanned leather strap.

This new version of the Victorinox Infantry is completely aligned with all the great characteristics that made the worldwide success of this watch.

  • Clean design
  • Practical
  • Functional
  • Innovative elements

The watch division of the Makers of the Swiss army knife has always a great story to tell and to remind us of the amazing Swiss ingenuity of the little red object. In the Infantry GMT, we have the subtle yet present red color element in the second time-zone hand and in the bezel at the 24 inscription. Stylistic references are principally drawn from the world of military watches, but it also has retro appeal. This is particularly evident in the design of the indexes, which are inspired by old typewriter fonts.

The movement is a Ronda 515 quartz. It is known for its solid behavior in time. It has a powerful engine and a long lasting battery consumption (45 month). The watch is sold with 2 different bracelets. You can choose between a very elegant vintage style leather bracelet (ecological tanned) or a Metal mech modern bracelet.
