Gift Idea: Victorinox I.N.O.X. Watch

Shopping for guys can be tough. One of the questions I get the most from friends, family members and readers is 'what should I buy my dad/boyfriend/brother/father-in-law/etc. for his birthday or upcoming holiday?' When asked what they want for a gift, most guys say they don't know or honestly haven't given it any thought, so it's really tricky to come up with ideas! When Victorinox reached out to me with info on the I.N.O.X., their newest men's watch launched for their 130th anniversary, I knew I had to share it with you because it will make such a great gift for the guys in your lives!

The I.N.O.X. timepiece was built to last and modeled after the famous Swiss Army Knife: it's robust, authentic, reliable in all conditions and can withstand any and all levels of stress. The watch has been put through some pretty serious tests, including a 32 foot drop onto a concrete surface, being driven over by a 64 ton tanker truck (ouch), going through the washing machine for 2 hours (particularly good for the guy who puts things in his pockets and forgets to take them out before doing laundry) as well as weathering a sandstorm. While your guy probably won't experience many sandstorms here in the US, I.N.O.X. can also resist many corrosive products including gasoline, solvents, oils, cleaning liquids and insecticides, so no matter what type of conditions your guy works in, this watch can weather the conditions!

I.N.O.X. is also reinforced with a removable nylon and silicone bumper protector to prevent scratching and damage to the watch face. You can see why Victorinox brands the I.N.O.X. as the perfect companion for life!

I.N.O.X. is made of solid steel and epitomizes strength with its unique design while maintaining a compact and sleek appearance. The dial is a single sealed piece, the indexes are stamped on and the horns are protected against warping and solidified with a crossbar. Even the crown and crystal are protected by the slightly elevated bezel. All of these details may go unnoticed to the untrained eye, but they make this watch reliable (it comes with a three year limited warranty) and versatile enough to suit any man's wrist, regardless of his personal style.

The Victorinox I.N.O.X. comes in three different colors (black, khaki green and navy blue) and retails for $525. Click here to find the store nearest you that carries the I.N.O.X.
