    Five ways to wear:
    The Airboss watch by Victorinox

    Brummell's Five Ways To Wear showcases classic wardrobe pieces and demonstrates how to style them for different effects. This issue Victorinox shows us how to wear the Airboss watch

    You may know Victorinox for its multi-tool Swiss Army knives, loved by schoolboys, adults, the military and NASA astronauts, and can now even be seen in the new London Design Museum’s permanent exhibition, no less. But this 133-year-old Swiss family business also makes luggage, accessories and watches.

    The Airboss is typical of its output – a mechanical watch that combines great design, quality and reliability. Whichever model you go for, it is a versatile adddition to your wardrobe. Masculine enough for casual weekend wear, the Airboss will combine equally well with smart tailoring.

    Choose from a variety of straps, finishes and degrees of functionality to dial the sportiness up or down. Easy to read, with luminescent hands and numerals for night-time, the Airboss might reference military service – it’s named after the countdown commander on an aircraft carrier – but it works perfectly on civvy street.
