The Best Men's Victorinox Watches for Under...

Some people will be particular to a specific watch brand.  And I can completely understand that.  We are going to cover Victorinox today, a company that has only been making watches for around 14 years, but has a long history and is best known for swiss army knives.  Their watches has become high quality while remaining fairly competitive price-wise

So lets go ahead and get right into it!

The Best Men's Victorinox Watches for Under...

The Best Men's Victorinox Watch for under 500 Dollars

Band width: Leather
Movement: Mechanical Self winding
Functions: HH, MM, SS, Date
Water resistance: 100 M/330 ft

This is a really hard price point for Victorinox.  It seems like about 50% of their watches fall in the under 500 dollar price range, but above the under 200 dollar price range.  This watch is actually on the 5 best men's watches for under 500 dollars list.

It is a great watch, in my mind.  Mechanical, Swiss, and stainless steel.  By a company that has been making swiss army knives for more than 125 years.

The watch itself has a 40mm, polished stainless steel case with a crown at the 3 o'clock position.  The black face has Arabic numerals on the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions. with the Victorinox shield at the 12 o'clock position and dashes at the remaining hour markers.  The hour and minute hands are polished stainless steel and the second hand is red.  The Leather band has a buckle clasp.  And the Alliance has a sapphire lens on both the front and the back.

The Victorinox is a very nice watch.  I see it often for around 455 dollars, and personally believe it is a very nice watch for the price.  It occasionally goes a little over 500 dollars, the price can vary wildly, so buyer beware.

Alpnach Mechanical

The Alpnach offers its owner
a tough product that should
hold up to a beating
Model: 241685
Case: 44mm, PVD coated stainless steel
Band: Fabric Canvas
Movement: Mechanical Self Winding
Functions: HH, MM, SS, Date
Water resistance: 100M/325ft

If your tastes don't go the way of the G-shock, but you are in need of a watch that can take a beating, the Alpach may be what you are looking for.  This is one tough customer.  Its 44mm stainless steel PVD coated case will be scratch resistant, as well as the triple coated sapphire lens.  The crown at the 3 o'clock position is also coated in PVD, and has a guard.  The black face has easy to read numbers with Indiglo and hour, minute and second hands that contrast nicely with the black face.  The canvas band is durable and has a leather strip for extra strength and the mechanical movement is being touted is a very tough movement.

While I am not a big fan of the looks of this watch, I have to say, I would take one in a heartbeat over a G-Shock.  And even though it may not be as tough as a G-Shock, it would only have to be cloes for me to take one of these over a G-Shock.  I'm sorry to all G-Shock fans, I am not trying to hate on the watch.  It has a very good reputation and a well deserved one.

The price point for this watch is around 670 so it will cost a bit more than a G-Shock, but I do believe you will be getting a good quality watch.

Airboss Mechanical Power Gauge

The Airboss is a stylish watch
with a very refined look
Model: 241576
Case: 42mm, Stainless steel
Band: 22mm, Leather
Movement: Automatic Mechanical
Functions: HH, MM, SS, Date
Battery: N/A
Water resistance: 10M/330ft

The Airboss Mechanical Power Gauge is a good looking watch.  With its 42mm stainless steel case, and brown leather band with white stitching, it has a very stylish look to it.  The dial face is white and the hour markers are Arabic numerals for the most part.  The Hands are silver, with Indiglo embedded through the middle.  The power reserve gauge is at the 7 o'clock position.  The Airboss has a sapphire front lens and back lens as well.  It also has a date window located at the 3 o'clock position.

The Airboss is usually found around 1700 dollars.  It is personally more than I would pay, it is why this watch did not make it onto my 5 best men's watches under 2000 dollars.  But if you are a fan of Victorinox, or Swiss made watches, this watch may just suite you.

Wrap up
The Victorinox watches are very nice.  Before I started the best men's watches under, I had never even heard of Victorinox, at least not as a watchmaker.  But they have a nice looking, and quality product.  

I think almost anyone would be satisfied with a Victorinox product, and hope to own one someday myself.
