Victorinox Journey 1884 Automatic

Published By

Inspired by the Swiss Prealps’ hiking paths, the Victorinox Journey 1884 Automatic is exquisitely topographical. Everything on the dial is applied, pops up, or is embossed, resulting in several peaks and valleys. The bezel has a lustrous ceramic inlay which frames a deep-set dial that flaunts its dimensionality at literally every angle. The index ring sports either an organic grain or slick embossed lines. Both look cool and up the hour markers’ legibility

Essentially, Victorinox managed to translate the texture of hiking paths, the moving shimmer of rivers, and the varied geography of the source material into a non-gimmicky, serious piece of tactile gear. There’s even a wooden bracelet option (which you can switch to and from sans tool, by the way). And since Victorinox is the purveyor of everyone’s favorite multi-tool, the Journey 1884 is spec-forward, offering comprehensive resistance and running on Swiss horology’s answer to a workhorse movement, the automatic Sellita SW200.
