Swiss Army knife maker Victorinox has launched the rugged Inox watch. These watches were made to survive over a hundred toughness tests, including being run over by a tank, dropped on concrete, exposed to extreme heat and cold, left in a sandstorm for a couple of hours and put in a washing machine.

The Victorinox Inox watches are built to stay watertight to a depth of up to 200 meters, and can withstand temperatures ranging from -51 to +71 degrees Centigrade. They can also handle 12 G of acceleration and withstand corrosion at the hands of chemicals, gasoline, cleaning products and insecticides.

The watch has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, which seals in a single piece dial with red military-style time markers. The dial boasts the iconic Victorinox cross. The watch comes with either black, green or blue dials with matching straps. Stats for Rugged Swiss Watches Trending: This Year & Popular
