Victorinox Swiss Army Ads

Introducing the Victorinox Swiss Army Vintage Ad Gallery

By | Announcement, Victorinox Swiss Army Watch, Watch Reference, Watch Sleuth | No Comments
I’m a sucker for vintage Swiss Army advertising campaigns. Partly it’s because I’m in the world of advertising and corporate communications as a vocation. It is helpful for me to see what some other creative person did in the past. Their work is often inspiring, humorous or could be a time capsule of the decade when they originally ran.… Read the rest

Fortis Blue Horizon Limited Edition watch with brown sunburst dial floating over Earth

MEET THE WATCH: Fortis Blue Horizon Limited Edition B-42 Aviatis from BaselWorld 2014

By | Automatic Movement, Chronograph Watch, Fortis Watch, Limited Edition, Valjoux 7750 Movement | No Comments
This will be the first Fortis watch to appear on the Watch Hunter site. I have always wanted to own a Fortis ever since I learned about the Cosmonaut watches that they produced back in the 1990s. Those Cosmonaut watches were true space watches having been picked for Russian crew members of extraterrestrial voyages and long-term orbital space station missions.… Read the rest

It’s that time again for the OnlyWatch Auction to happen. Every two years, a number of watch manufacturers create one-of-a-kind timepieces that are auctioned to raise money to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is a great example of companies giving back to help a worthy cause, but really it is a win-win for everyone involved.… Read the rest

I only own two at the moment, and that is pretty skimpy as far as Seiko fanboys are concerned. However, I will be rectifying this shortcoming in the years ahead as I build my knowledge of the brand and buy thoughtful examples.… Read the rest
