Victorinox Infantry or Garrison?
« on: January 17, 2017, 12:54:03 PM »
They look almost the same, to my eye they seem to have similar specs and yet the Infantry ones seem to cost 5 times as much. What am I missing?

Infantry does seem to look "slightly" classier but not 5 times nicer... I know the links below show a newer Infantry model (with the white logo), but you get the idea.

They both look like Ho Hum watches for the price to me.  :pok:

The Infantry has a Saphire crystal, which means it's HIGHLY scratch resistant, only diamond coated stuff can scratch it's crystal. Where the Garrison has got a mineral crystal, which means it can be scratched relativily easy.

The sad part is: Saphire crystals are expensive...

Buy now or regret later

To each his own... some find them boring.. others find them classy.

I have a big shiny Casio Edifice Chronograph which is cute but I find it far too gaudy to use at work.

I just bought a Garrison secondhand (with Roush Fenway Racing logo, and supposedly, those watches were only given to employees), and I'll tell you what I think after I wear it a bit.   It's got what appears to be a NATO band on it, so apparently whoever had it first  hated that rubber band, and I'm not keen on leather or rubber bands myself, either.
