Is Victorinox Watch a Luxury Watch Brand?

The confusion comes from the company taking over the original Swiss Army Knife manufacturer, Wenger, in 2005. Victorinox rarely uses anything but high-end Swiss quartz/battery movements and the watch designs have been heralded for manufacturing some of the most impressive watches in the luxury category.
