The-world-of-Wenger

By guest writer Barrie Smith

One product for which the Swiss are famous are their watches, which give nothing but precision timing. Watch makers such as Wenger deliver exceptional character and standard.

Wenger is the sister company of Victorinox which are famous for both their Swiss Army knives and Swiss Army watches. It’s the same company that has been contracted by the Swiss Army to be the official maker of Swiss Army knives so we can expect that both Wenger and Victorinox observe close attention to detail to pass the exacting standards of the Swiss Army. They clearly succeeded in doing so because Wenger have been making Swiss Army knives for more than 100 years to date.

Precise

Wenger Watches

As well as their success in making Swiss Army knives, the Swiss have adapted their high standards and quality engineering to create watches that offer precision, beauty and functionality. With the aid of their skilled artisans, Wenger released their first watch line in 2003. All these watches possess great accuracy running on Swiss quartz movements and thus carry the Swiss stereotype of being a reliable precision instrument.

Aside from precision and accuracy, Wenger watches are also known for their elegance and style. Since 2003 the brand has worked hard to expand the range from the Standard Issue, to the GST Diver, the Swiss Commando, Aerograph, Terragraph, Ladies’ watches, the Wenger Nomad LED watch released earlier this year, sport watches and more.

Multifunctional

Rather like the famous Swiss pocket knife, Wenger watches offer a combination of multifunctionality, durability and Swiss craftmanship. One model features a compass that can help you find your way out of the wild. Others have the ability to measure speed over a specific distance, keep track of a second time zone, convert miles to kilometres or even calculate exchange rates.

Affordable

However, for all the quality that goes into Wenger Watches, they are surprisingly light on the wallet. Watches range from $100 to $500, making them among the most affordable Swiss watch on the market.

Swiss Army training

The Swiss Army is one of the strongest in Europe. It is a tough, well-trained professional fighting force that has kept the country from being invaded through two World Wars. Every able-bodied Swiss male is required to serve and remains in the army as a reservist until age 50. As a condition of preparedness, each soldier is provided with the most advanced technology and the simplest – a folding pocketknife.
