We usually think of Victorinox, Wenger, CX Swiss Military, Hanowa etc. when it comes to Swiss Army,
or Swiss Military watches right guys?

Have you ever heard of Swiss Military by R though? ..Just learning about them today, and they have
been making watches since 1970 in Reconvilier near Biel Bienne Switzerland. With each watch being
hand assembled, and also coming with pocket military knives.

Collections include Sniper, Commando, and Alpha. With stainless steel cases ranging from 44mm on
down to 40mm, and having Swiss ISA, and Ronda quartz movements. Other specifications include
sapphire crystals, 50-100 meter water resistance, stainless, and PVD finishes, multiple dial choices,
stainless steel bracelets, and even cool nylon straps.

A look at a few of the many variations...

Swiss Army, with the shield, is a trade mark sold to Victorinox by the Swiss government. Swiss Military and the Swiss Cross can be used by anybody....so over the years there has been lots of Swiss Military watches made by several companies. Most of them I never heard of. Including this one....

Like the green two tone!

Wow, some terrific insight Gary. Thanks so much !  study

Didn't know that the Swiss Government actually did that with Victorinox like that. Cool !!! ..It's funny how even after
we think we have discovered all of the watch companies, and brands out there, that more reveal themselves. Actually
saw Swiss Military By R in one of the Touch of Modern e-mails, and was like hey let's check them out.  Smile

Thanks once again for the info about everything here Gary !
