Swiss Army Watch

Photo of a Swiss Army Chron Classic Black Dial WatchTrue story:  I met a guy the other day and he was wearing a really sharp looking wrist watch.  

I said, “Nice watch.  What kind is it?”

“It’s a Swiss Army Watch,” he said.  Well, I didn’t even know that the people who make the famous Swiss Army knives also made watches.  I made a note to check Amazon.

Turns out that Victorinox started selling fine watches in the United States in 1989 under the brand name Swiss Army.

This is the watch the guy was wearing.  

Swiss Army makes other great watches.  I just happen to like the high-tech good looks of the Victorinox Swiss Army Men’s 241171 Chrono Classic Black Dial Watch.

Among Swiss Watches like the Tag Heuer the Swiss Army watch is not the most expensive Swiss timepiece.  

But if you ask me, this chronometer looks great for a FRACTION of the price.  You can be proud to present Dad or a new grad a timepiece of this quality.

My Opinion:

The Victorinox Swiss Army Men’s 241171 Chrono Classic Black Dial Watch offers Swiss reliability, a classic analog look, and excellent value for the money.

The Swiss Army brand is a relative newcomer for quality timepieces but in two decades has earned a reputation for rugged quality.

If you have always wanted the quality of a Swiss watch, the high tech look, and worry free operation, this could be the timepiece for you.  Incredible value.  One reviewer calls it “a steal.”

Unicorn Mask

Relive the olden days when unicorns roamed in abundance before they were hunted to extinction for their tasty unicorn meat. Be sure to  click the photo to check out the disturbing Amazon customer images for this one.

Lunch Lady Action Figure

According to customer reviews, this action figure is the spitting image of the lunch lady played by Chris Farley the Saturday Night Live sketch.  Since there’s only one Lunch Lady action figure, it’s pretty easy to collect them all.


Inflatable Turkey

Customer enthusiasm runs high for this item.  When you need a turkey fast, this is the answer.  Top Raman for Thanksgiving?  Be thankful your Thanksgiving table can still look the part with this delicious-looking bird.  Be especially thankful this item hasn’t gone the way of inflatable toast (see below).  Clean up is a snap.


Squirrel Mask

Shown here with a farmer get-up.  Do you feel a human-sized squirrel would wear overalls or go for more formal attire?  Tough call and that call can be yours.


Have you seen the little piggies in their starched white shirts? 

A greedy pig?  Right on the money for the 1% or someone who just wants to look the part.


The Town Nun Mask

Odd looking enough for you?  Ben Afleck fans will recall this look from the movie The Town.

Customers and the description claim it’s “extremely comfortable to wear.”  Glad somebody’s comfortable!


Inflatable Toast

When you needed toast in a hurry, inflatable toast was the answer.  Sadly, Amazon doesn’t know when or if inflatable toast will be back in stock.


So there you have them, 7 strange, weird looking Amazon products.
