Over the past year, a lot of things have come into focus for me. Not just the importance of one’s physical health but 2020 also taught us to be even more mindful of our mental health. An unfortunate reality of a pandemic is a world where we sat in front of screens much more than we ever intended because of necessity. Now, many are realizing the damaging impact it has had on our social climate and as a result, are seeking products that make us less connected yet are still practical. The Alliance Watch by One Cut favorite Victorinox is a classy, modern timepiece that brings back comfort and reliability over other features that serve to distract.
For the unaccustomed, the team behind Victorinox has created everything from pocketknives, luggage, watches, and even fragrances for over a century with a focus on iconic design backed by quality, function, and innovation. Their latest Alliance watch brings a balanced minimalist look and optimal wearing comfort to a timepiece that seemingly balances accuracy and aesthetics.
With its compact 40mm round watch face accented with a range of stunning color variants and polished 316L stainless-steel housing and band, this is one ageless watch that exudes premium Swiss-made quality. Weighing in at an optimal 132g it also feels well balanced on the wrist and of note is the easy-to-read number markers that contrast the beautiful dial color, it is unapologetically simple and exudes a luxury many other watch manufacturers’ fail to get right.
Durability is of no concern either with its 10 ATM/100 M/330 FT water resistance and thorough Victorinox testing policy that puts each device through over 100 quality control tests before coming to market. Best of all, the Alliance watch is backed by a very impressive 5-year warranty, so rest assured, this watch will go the distance!
To conclude, you are not likely to find another watch of this quality that has an endearing timeless aesthetic for under $500. Victorinox continues to impress with its products, reassuring would-be consumers that true quality and brand loyalty matter.
