Rare Victorinox / Swiss Army AirBoss Mach 6 VI Power Reserve Gauge Limited Edition

Discontinued years ago and exceedingly rare find. #320 / 333 ever produced worldwide. In excellent condition and maintained superbly by a VSA super-collector. Recent servicing and new crystal installed. There is only one small blemish on the case PVD. All remaining is intact, which I have not seen on any of the several other comparable models that have been listed over the past several years, those all had significant damage to the case finish and crystal. Very likely not a better example anywhere.

Respectfully, No interest in any trades at this time. Please PM or email me at: [email protected]

Please see my other items for sale. I’m liquidating one of the largest, rarest and highest end Victorinox / Swiss Army collection anywhere! It took me many years to collect all these watches, but it’s time to move them onto new homes as I have enjoyed them. CONUS only. Thanks.

Swiss Army Airboss Mach 6 Power Gauge - Limited Edition to 333 pieces total workdwide. ETA Valjoux 7750 mechanical self-winding chronograph movement with 42-hours power reserve gauge which is indicated on the main dial. Gunmetal PVD finished solid stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, observation back, black dial with luminous hands, numerals and markers, black bison leather strap with pvd clasp. Comes in special collectors box packaging.

Featuring cluttered dial and an oversized body, the new Victorinox Swiss Army AirBoss Mach 6 Power Gauge doesn’t look like a very practical wristwatch. However, the way it is designed and the way its mechanical movement is finished makes it a very nice fashion accessory for those who always dreamed about accomplishing a tour of duty on a real aircraft carrier.

Established many years ago, this series of fine, yet more or less affordable watches is said to be inspired by modern aircraft carriers’ control rooms and is dedicated to the Swiss Air Force, although the small country doesn’t have maritime borders and, naturally, they don’t have any aircraft carrier whatsoever.

Like other modern pilot’s watches, the Victorinox AirBoss Mach 6 Power Gauge features a PVD coated stainless steel case with luminescent segments on its face, bezel and hands (in fact, the only element that lacks the Supeluminova treatment is the tiny date indicator at 4 o’clock).

The 45mm case nests the famous Valjoux 7750 self-winding automatic chronograph movement. Equipped with a personalized oscillating weight and sporting blued screws, the robust and reliable caliber can be see via see-through screw-in caseback.
The movement is, by the way, nicely decorated with Geneva stripes and blued screw heads and features an open-worked oscillating weight with the brand’s signature shield.

The Mach 6’s screw-down crown increases the timepiece’s water resistance to 100 meters: practical enough if you don’t plan to use this watch for professional diving.

Only 333 watches will be sold worldwide.
