Ahh… the mysteries of watch collecting are what fuel watch nerds to spend countless hours researching the most minute details. If you have a Victorinox Swiss Army watch that is a mystery to you, then the “Watch Sleuth” can help you find out what model it is and when it was produced. Just contact me to request the “free” services of the watch sleuth. The only payment is that I will get to write an article about it later.

Click to visit the Seiko Catalog PDF Library I will not exaggerate the scope of my Seiko watch collection. 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

Introducing the Watch Catalog Reference PDF Library for Victorinox Swiss Army Watches

By | Victorinox Swiss Army Watch, Watch Reference, Watch Sleuth | No Comments
If you are like me, you might have a variety of watches in your collection that span many years. For instance, my oldest Victorinox Swiss Army watch is currently from somewhere in the mid-1990s. Dating early Swiss Army watches can be a tricky affair because some of them did not have serial numbers and even if they did, the early model’s serials were not always accurately tied to the release year or manufacturing date.… Read the rest

WATCH SLEUTH: Identifying a Mystery Victorionx Swiss Army Watch from the 1990s

By | Miscellaneous, Quartz Movement, Victorinox Swiss Army Watch, Watch Sleuth | 4 Comments
Writing a blog can require me to be equal parts observant sleuth and wide-eyed student. Writing about watches and this horological obsession takes effort. Nobody “just knows” about watches. It takes years of immersion, luck and maybe some intuition too.
