This hefty timepiece by Victorinox—a 45-millimeter chronograph weighing about 7 ounces—carries its weight by offering tons of functionality. The tachymeter bezel is helpful not only in measuring fuel and oil consumption but also in converting units of measurement, calculating distance, and measuring speed. It can even be used to solve math problems. And with a built-in alarm, the Chrono Classic XLS ensures your punctuality. And then there’s the chronograph, which is controlled by the two oblong pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock. In addition to providing 12-hour and 30-minute timers on the two-hand subdial at 9 o’clock, the chronograph counts seconds on the main dial and allows for split timing.
The dial is appointed with Arabic numerals at the hour positions, with slightly larger numerals at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions.The textured silver subdial at 6 o’clock features lumed black hands, while the subdial at 9 o’clock, which partially obscures the 9 and 10 o’clock numerals, features lumed red hands. All three hands on the main dial are also lumed, as are the pips above each hour numeral on the rehaut. The black bezel is engraved with a tachymeter scale, while at the 3 o’clock position is a heavily textured crown that sets the date window at 4 o’clock as well as the time.
