Victorinox Infantry Vintage Chronograph PVD (Mechanical)

I’ve been keeping an eye on Victorinox Swiss Army watches the past couple years and I think it is time to give them some credit for offering watch enthusiasts some great watches at great price points — ie good value for your money.  In particular the brand has recently introduced  some very cool new PVD watches that caught my eye i.e. this new Infantry Vintage Chronograph in black PVD.   The Victorinox Infantry Vintage Chrono watch was actually introduced 2 years ago with a quartz movement, but now it is available with a mechanical movement (more on this below the jump).  Have a look:

The movement in this watch is an ETA/ Valjoux 7750 movement.  The Valjoux 7750 is widely known as quality and reliable Swiss-made automatic mechanical movement.  The Valjoux 7750 is actually used in the watches of many famous and high-dollar luxury brands, some of which carry a much higher price point.
This particular model is priced at $1,895 and is one of the more — if not the most expensive — models from Victorinox. That said, I think it is a relative value compared to other black PVD models with quality Swiss-movements in them.  Also, in general the black PVD watches have been limited to higher end brands thus making them largely inaccessible at price points such as this.  To see a long list of other PVD watches I have written about, CLICK HERE and you will see what I mean that they are far from the $1,900 price point.  That makes this new Infantry Vintage Chrono Mechanical PVD a good option for those of you shopping in this price range.
By the way, the Victorinox Infantry Vintage Chrono Mechanical actually comes in three colors — the PVD you see here, olive, and silver with black trim
