Hey look, another watch with a twirly thingy (rotor blades?) as a sub-dial. Must be some sort of craze.

Nice Victorinox. I might have considered it if not for the busy dial!

They should make a watch with a pocket knife blade folded inside though, just a thought, for urgent situations where it may be warranted

What's going on with the bezel markings?

It's a countdown bezel. Often found on pilot watches.


"Countdown bezels are similar to a count-up bezel but the minute track is reversed on the bezel; they go from 60 minutes to zero. This is used to set the time remaining before or during an event.
Rotate the bezel so that the time remaining is set to the minute hand; when the minute hand reaches zero on the scale your timer is done."

Finding out the time is about as difficult as finding a cheesburger.

Good catch!! Thanks

But seeing Victorinox as a famed knifemaker maybe they would be better positioned to do it IMO
