We’re thrilled with the success of our first Brand Spotlight with Bulova, so we’re riding the momentum into our second by showcasing another long-standing partner of ours, one of the most well-known outdoor brands in the world: Victorinox.
While Victorinox may be known today for its reliable watches (among many other goods), it’s impossible to discuss them without first mentioning the original Swiss Army Knife.

The link to the poll is here. Thanks for reading!
