The ‘I.N.O.X. FDNY Special Edition’ watch features a dial imprinted with the FDNY Foundation logo and a laser-engraved case back that reads, “FDNY Proudly Serving Since 1865.” The watch can withstand extreme conditions like flame exposure, glacial cold, 64 tons of pressure, 500,000 vibration cycles, 10-meter high drops, chemical corrosion and more.
 
“We are excited to introduce the newest addition to the Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X. collection in partnership with the FDNY Foundation as part of their 150th Anniversary celebration,” said René Stutz, President and CEO of Victorinox Swiss Army North America. “I.N.O.X. embodies the quintessential values of Victorinox’s most famous creation, the original Swiss Army Knife: authenticity, reliability, and quality, to name a few. We find this same shared code of values in our partnership with the FDNY Foundation and look forward to future collaborations, such as the ‘I.N.O.X. FDNY Special Edition’ watch, that provides our company a platform to meaningfully support and promote the tremendous service they provide the citizens of New York and around the world.”

The Special Edition watch is priced at $495 and is available at all Victorinox Swiss Army Retail stores in the US and Europe; select Victorinox retailers such as Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Tourneau; the FDNY Fire Zone store at 34 West 51st Street and the FDNY Shop website. 10% of all US sales proceeds of the watch will be donated to the FDNY Foundation in support of fire safety programs.
 
Victorinox and the FDNY Foundation first introduced their partnership in August 2014.
