Victorinox I.N.O.X. Carbon Watch

If you want an EDC watch that’s practically indestructible but still light on your wrist, you’d usually look at digital watches. But those aren’t for everyone, especially if you’re after a more classic look. Few everyday carry brands do classics like Victorinox, whose iconic Swiss Army Knives have been EDC staples for decades. While its relatively new collection started with models built from its namesake I.N.O.X. steel, the line has expanded with timepieces sporting new, durable materials like titanium and paracord. The latest entry in the lineup, the I.N.O.X. Carbon, comes as a blacked-out, EDC-ready option with a case made from carbon fiber resin. It’s got the rugged spirit and classic style we’ve seen from past I.N.O.X. watches in a new design that won’t weigh you down.

Despite its stylish looks, durability and functionality are at the core of an I.N.O.X. watch’s design. To meet such high durability standards, Victorinox puts I.N.O.X. watches through the wringer, testing to ensure each watch can withstand the most extreme conditions. That includes drop tests onto concrete, freezing it solid, and blasting it with corrosive liquids, to name a few. It’s a rigorous process, but it’s all with the goal to create a watch that’s tough enough for EDC and then some.

Materials play a huge role for any piece of EDC gear’s durability. The I.N.O.X. Carbon’s unique carbon fiber resin not only dramatically reduces weight, but also creates a visually striking textured appearance that’s actually smooth to the touch. Its lustrous, triple-AR coated sapphire crystal offers scratch-resistant clarity, juxtaposed by the case’s satin finish to really make the watch face pop. As a unique design detail, the I.N.O.X. Carbon features a 24-hour time scale printed directly onto the inside of the crystal. These 13-24 hour markings make it easy to read military time and add visual depth to the dial. Lastly, there’s a contrasting white date display between the 4 and 5 hour markers.

Inside, you’ll find a durable and accurate Swiss quartz movement. While many EDCers would appreciate an automatic movement in the watch, Victorinox opted for a movement certain to be able to handle the shock, temperature, and high durability standards set by the I.N.O.X. line. It’s set inside a screw-down steel caseback that helps give the watch its 660ft water resistance rating.

Measuring in at 43mm the I.N.O.X. has plenty of wrist presence, yet despite its larger size, it doesn’t wear like a heavy, clunky watch. Since the case is made from carbon fiber, the watch is remarkably light weight. Paired with the soft and flexible Naimakka paracord strap, the I.N.O.X. Carbon is way more comfortable for daily wear than you would assume by looking at the specs, even on smaller wrists.

If you like a large, adventure-ready watch that’s sure to hold up to anything you can throw at it, consider adding the I.N.O.X. Carbon to your collection. It comes with an additional strap and a compass bezel bumper in its own diver-style storage case, too. You can pick up a Victorinox I.N.O.X. Carbon at the link below.
