Victorinox is known around the world for multifunction, thanks to its line of iconic Swiss Army knives that do every task a small piece of stainless steel could ever be expected to do. The Night Vision is a different type of Swiss Army multifunction: a watch with a useful secondary role.

The Night Vision watch has a series of integrated LED lights that enhance it as a timekeeper and add new functions. The most notable LED is the one that's built into the top of the case, transforming the watch into a flashlight by shining a beam forward. That light also has a strobe function, which can be used as an emergency distress signal. A blue LED inside the dial illuminates the time at night. All three of those lights are activated by pushing a button on the side.

The watch also has a red pilot light designed to let its owner locate it in the dark, and a low-battery warning light.

The Night Vision watch was originally launched in 2003 and redesigned for this year. It is available in several different styles, starting at US$595. The new watch looks a little more distinguished and cleaner than the older version.

You can watch the Night Vision in action in the video below.

Too bad it's not amber. Cyclists could switch it on for a short duration and have a "turn signal".

$595?? I'll buy a flashlight, thank you very much.
