Victorinox will use Inhorgenta in Munich this month to unveil its new INOX timepiece made from the same carbon resin composite that has protected space shuttles from re-entering the earth’s atmosphere when temperatures rocket to 1260°C.
Durable materials and construction join forces to create a watch with extremely high structural rigidity, scratch resistant surfaces and hypoallergenic properties.
The watch’s case has even more protection in the form of a transluscent grey removable bumper. It can be bought with a rubber strap, or one made from parachute chord, capable of supporting a 250kg load.
The 43mm case is water resistant to 200m and houses a Ronda 715 Swiss-made quartz movement.
Inhorgenta runs from February 18-21 at Munich’s Messe München exhibition complex.
