The Victorinox Swiss Army collection
The History of Swiss Army watches
Victorinox is well-known for their quality Swiss Army knives (thanks to MacGyver), but their watches are a timeless accessory as well. The Victorinox brand dates back to the 1890s in Switzerland. Karl Elsener and his mother Victoria opened up shop crafting their now famous knives for Swiss soldiers. The knives are iconic pocket tools with swiveling specialized features.
The knives have since grown in popularity, functionality, and sometimes size, but the company remains a family business. The name Victorinox commemorates the life of Elsener’s mother Victoria, and Elsener’s great-grandchildren are now in charge of the company. These days, however, Victorinox also specializes in Swiss Made watches.
Victorinox Swiss Army Style:
Victorinox watches showcase the brand’s notorious qualities: durability and sleek, timeless style. Styles include both men and women’s watches for all occasions. Choose from leather or stainless steel straps for a classic watch, or genuine rubber and fabric straps built for adventurers.
One of Victorinox’s iconic watches is the Swiss Army I.N.O.X. Titanium, which passes 130 tests before settling on your wrist. This watch ticks perfectly at extreme altitudes, temperatures, and speeds. The robust rubber strap and titanium case create the toughest—yet sleekest—watch on the market.
Victorinox Swiss Army Warranty: Victorinox watches are covered by a 3-year manufacturer’s limited warranty if purchased and serviced from Jewels on Ninth, an authorized retailer and Victorinox Service Centre. The warranty covers hand, dial, and movement defects.

The Citizen Eco-Drive watch collection
Citizen has been perfecting their timepieces since 1930. The name Citizen comes from the brand’s dedication to providing familiar, creative, and constantly evolving products to the citizens of the world. Citizen proudly created light-driven technology in 1976, to finally add the Eco-Drive to their line of timepieces in 1995.
The Citizen Eco-Drive is the watch that doesn’t need a battery. It converts any type of light into energy, and stores that light in a tiny power cell inside the watch. This power cell is so strong, that it can keep the Eco-Drive working for six months in the dark. With a Citizen Eco-Drive watch, wearers will literally never need to change their watch battery again. This feature allows wearers to enjoy Citizen watches anywhere in the world—any time.
Style: The Citizen Eco-Drive line offers a huge variety of watches all with the same light-powered technology. These watches come with leather straps; as well as gold, black, or silver toned stainless steel. Some of these timepieces come in ultra-thin sizes for lightweight wear without sacrificing any of the style.
Warranty: Watches purchased from authorized Citizen retailers will be covered by a 5-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. Restrictions apply.

The Bulova watch collection: A history of firsts
Bulova watches have a long history of firsts. The brand was born in 1875 by Joseph Bulova in Manhattan.
As Bulova paved the road to modern, respected watches, these timepieces have been a part of communities worldwide. Bulova aired America’s first radio commercial, then the first television commercial. Now, they continue to contribute to individual memories with their divinely crafted watches. The brand’s most recent campaign showcases the moments Bulova is happy to have been a part of: “firsts” for people everywhere.
Style: Bulova balances quality with value; precision with style. These watches come in almost every shape, size, and colour imaginable.

Albert Wittnauer, a Swiss immigrant new to New York city created Wittnauer watches in 1885. His watches are American-made from Swiss designs, and known for their luxurious styles. Over one hundred years later, Wittnauer watches still signify grace and glamour across the world.
The Wittnauer brand is now owned by Bulova, but their rich Swiss family history still shines through the newer nightlife lines of watches.
Style: Things sparkling are what these timepiece creators craft best. Men’s designs focus on classic shapes with modern touches of style: black faces on gold stainless steel settings, diamond faces set on black stainless steel straps.

Wittnauer’s women’s watches take the glam up yet another notch from the men’s timepieces. Choose from dainty or bold; silver or rose gold. Intricate diamond designs make these clocks pop. Oval and baguette-shaped faces create unique pieces to complete any look.
