Victorinox uses space shuttle material to protect its ultra-durable INOX watches


Victorinox will use Inhorgenta in Munich this month to unveil its new INOX timepiece made from the same carbon resin composite that has protected space shuttles from re-entering the earth’s atmosphere when temperatures rocket to 1260°C.

Durable materials and construction join forces to create a watch with extremely high structural rigidity, scratch resistant surfaces and hypoallergenic properties.

The watch’s case has even more protection in the form of a transluscent grey removable bumper. It can be bought with a rubber strap, or one made from parachute chord, capable of supporting a 250kg load.


The 43mm case is water resistant to 200m and houses a Ronda 715 Swiss-made quartz movement.

Inhorgenta runs from February 18-21 at Munich’s Messe München exhibition complex.
