Victorinox Swiss Army AirBoss Mach 6 Power Guage
July 4, 2008
BIENNE, SWITZERLAND, 2008 - Rugged yet sophisticated, the AirBoss Collection was first introduced in 2003, inspired by the flight deck boss of today's aircraft carriers. The beauty and fascination of this timepiece lies in its cockpit like feeling with all its instruments and controls.
Victorinox Swiss Army is celebrating the collection's 5th anniversary with a sonic boom and is pleased to present the limited edition AirBoss Mach 6 Power Gauge with mechanical movement. Would it have wings it would fly.
Recognizable at first sight this very special timepiece is held in a strong 45mm diameter steel case and triple-coated anti-reflective sapphire crystal allow the view on a striking black dial. The chiseled hands and numbers with PVD Black Ice coating and luminescent segments on all hands and subdial markers ease the use in the dark. The aggregate with the very advanced power reserve gauge function is featured by a 7750 Valjoux self-winding chronograph movement. Backcase delicate engraved details show the Swiss Air force emblem and the limited edition number of the individual timepiece. Through the sapphire crystal the inside mechanic is visible and the oscillating weight with Victorinox Swiss Army logo engraving underlines the bold statement to detail. Elegant dimension to the dial, and the crown - with embossed cross and shield emblem - reflects the brand's full attention to finishes. The power is held together by a black leather strap with grey stitching
The AirBoss Mach 6 Power Gauge will be produced in a very limited edition of 333 units. Each timepiece will be deployed and recovered in a special collector's box with certificate acting as its airbase.
