This is the Victorinox Night Vision timepiece.
I found this video on the Stowa facebook page, and its a short video of their Marine Original.
The Marine Original is a beautiful watch, but wait until you see the movement in the video.
The hand wound Durowe 7440 movement, Stowas modified Unitas 6498 movement, is simply incredible in the video.

Below are a couple of screenshots from the video
Today we have an interesting day, the twelfth day of the twelfth month in the year 2012 or 12.12.12
I just took this picture, although I cheated a bit.
I did not change the date or time but set the watch in am/pm instead of 24 hour mode where it would normally show 00:12.12
Now waiting for the real 12:12:12 around noon today 🙂
Too bad the watch does not also show the year
I have been looking at the new Night vision watches from Victorinox Swiss Army online, and I must say I am quite impressed.
The night vision brand from Victorinox has been around for a few years now, and I believe that this new version is the third generation of the Night vision watches.
The Night vision watch has a Swiss quartz movement, and a button on the left side that can activate a brilliant blue light on the dial of the watch, or a white light LED on the top of the watch that can be used to navigate a dark room, or to show your position in an emergency.
Aquadive just introduced their beautiful NOS (new old stock) model 77.
The Model 77 are stock of watches from the 70´s fitted either with a new ETA 2836 movement or the original (cleaned, oiled and serviced) Anton Schild movement.
The watch has a modern dial as well as the hands, and gadgets, are modern Swiss made parts.
This watch looks to be a great combination of old and new technology, and a great looking piece to say the least.
The ETA model will cost 990 USD until the end of january 2013
The Anton Child model will cost 1.090 USD at launch.
There is a limited supply of these watches, only 150 ETA watches, and only 50 Anton Schild watches.

The Hong Kong based watch maker Obris Morgan recently released their Nevon model.
Obris Morgan has been releasing some affordable and unique automatic watches recently, and it is a company well worth watching in the coming years.
The Nevon uses the workhorse Miyota 8215 automatic movement, and a anti reflective coated sapphire crystal.
Pricing is between 249$ and 269$, and world wide shipping is included in that price.
The Nevon is available in very many different configurations, as you can see below
