OCD and Vic pricing strategy questions about the new Classic Colours Collection

Hello Knights,

So the model code for the standard Classic SD in red was always 0.6223 - No suffix as it's red (so 06223.3 is a black one, 06223.2 a blue one etc etc)

Last year the new Classic Collection came out with thirty new colours - I thought this was a pretty good idea - Give the punters lots of options for colour - Why not? ??? :tu: Although Vic is just copying what Wenger did many years ago with theiir equivalent Esquire (Evolution 81) model!!  :o

The Classic collection model number is in the format 0.6223.xxG -
So for instance the Smashed Avocado colour variation is  06223.43G  ..... OK

Now the questions......

One of the series members is model 06223.G - And its colour is red - And it looks pretty much like the regular Vic red - Anybody got one to check?  ???   However the colour description in the Vic site says Style Icon for the colour!  ....... What kind of a colour is that ?  - and what on earth does that mean?   ???    :think: 

Now interestingly (OCD moment) I cannot find model 0.6223 on the site any more - So has 0.6223.G replaced 0.6223 ?   ???

And now the whinge !!!    ;)
The regular Classic non-SD model is still on the site - 0.6203
https://www.victorinox.com/de/en_/Products/Swiss-Army-Knives/Small-Pocket-Knives/Classic/p/0.6203
OK - And it costs €18

Yet the 0.6223.G costs €23 ........  I am sure these two models were always, or at least usually, the same price ?    :think: 

Is this another money grabbing excercise by Victorinox?   .......    ???   
Give us a so called new colour, that is actually the same colour - And charge us €5 more ?    :rant:

I suspect it's all hype and the fancy box and leaflet the colors editions get.

I got a little bit bored with red after about 12-15 Classics from lots, and I went with Sky High shortly after the series was released, and honestly ,I don't see why they're worth the premium--especially when you can get basically any Classic for $5 used shipped.

Not the regular model, but a "normal special" edition, I'd say...

Better?   ???    :think:

Maybe the previous title does not translate or be understood too well on an international forum    :o    .... I did wonder about that    :pok:

I don’t mind it at all, but it certainly caught my eye

 BTW - These colours make a lot more sense when they are all together across the three colour families

Found this image on the Vic website - So put it in the Wiki

The colour series order is solid>alox>transparaent>solid>alox> .........   etc
