VSA INOX in blue

VSA INOX in blue

Postby Mark1 » January 13th 2018, 10:06am

Got this one in the other day. Most of you probably saw the thread about these on sale at TJ Maxx recently. I had checked out one of their shithole locations only to find many a Fossil, Kenneth Cole and Invicter. I mentioned this in the thread and that I had been looking for a blue dialed version. Russ (RacerX) fired me a PM when he saw a couple NIBs come up on forums. Now here it is, a Victorinox Swiss Army INOX in blue. Delivered to my door step for well under two bills. So thanks Russ.

INOX
43mm or thereabouts, just a bit larger than my norm but my eyes aren't getting any younger. The comfy bracelet is long enough to remove one link and still fit my massive Skelton-like 8 inch wrist. It's a quartz movement of some type. Now a couple pics, it's hard to capture the blue given the natural light available now. In a few months the sun will come out, probably.

I have a green dial on a rubber. They really are nice watches. Also one of the most photogenic watches.

And Russ is the man.

Very nice watch especially for the price.

I like that one. I was considering picking up the ti with the orange strap.

Things are built like a tank. A sexy tank at that. Nice.

I figure if you went out of your way to a tjmax to get one and they didn't have it and you were disappointed then you were determined to get one. Pretty cool of Russ to help you out.

I like that blue, I saw one at my tj's, but thought it too large. That blue is a nice color shade though and I'm glad I will see it on the forum. Congrats on a good find.

For the record, I have a few TJ's near me and if someone is looking for a watch that theirs doesn't have and mine does, I can grab one for you for cost of watch and shipping. Just pm me.

Looks fit for purpose. Do these guys just make watches?

Tremendous value on the INOX. If I saw one for those prices I would be hard-pressed not to grab one.
