Victorinox Swiss Army has just released a specially designed timepiece for women, proceeds of which will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. And, a donation of $50 000 through the sale of these Victorinox Swiss Army watches has been guaranteed for the organisation.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is the world’s largest breast cancer organization. The not-for-profit organization aims to saves women’s lives and bring an end to breast cancer forever by empowering women, ensuring quality care for women suffering with breast cancer, as well as energizing science and research for the speedy discovery of a cure.
As with all Victorinox Swiss Army watches, this special edition of the Alliance Sport range for women is made in Switzerland and contains a Swiss analog quartz movement. The stainless steel case is 32.5 cm in diameter, as is the screw-in caseback and bracelet. The watch’s sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective treatment. The dial has a date calendar at 6 o’clock, and the hands and hour markers are luminous in the dark. There is a 2-piece, unidirectional rotating bezel that has a countdown scale. The watch is water resistant to 10 ATM, which is 100 meters or 330 feet.
A special, commemorative feature is the instantly recognisable pink ribbon that has been prominently placed on the dial, directly above the date calendar. This special timepiece is available until the end of May 2010.
