What it is:
Victorinox Swiss Army Infantry Vintage Chronograph, $795
Why we like it:
This sophisticated, vintage-inspired chronograph – while extremely handsome and available in a variety of finishes and colors – also has a function probably known only to artillerists: a telemeter. What the hell is a telemeter, you might ask? A telemeter indicates the distance of an approaching enemy by measuring the time between the light and the sound of a canon. If you’re not planning on heading into battle, you can use it to gage the distance of an approaching thunderstorm.
