505. Altimeter Plus

The Altimeter Plus is an improved variation of Altimeter model. Historically if Victorinox released some known model with added wood-saw, this new model will get name of base model and “Plus” suffix. The same situation for this one – well known Altimeter got wood-saw and new name. Sadly, but both these models now are discontinued (replaced by Traveller model later).

494. Voyager Lite

The Victorinox Voyager Lite is a one from few models which are equipped with embedded electronic tools. As the knife’s name implies, it’s a enhanced version of Voyager model. Usually models with “Lite” addon in their names has additional tools layer, which includes LED light and Phillips screwdriver. Same is true for Voyager Lite.

As for now, this model is discontinued and replaced by more efficient Traveller Lite (which has additional electronic tools). By the way, if I’m not mistaken, there are no way to recognize (by photo only) these two models – their external look absolutely the same.

459. TimeKeeper Alarm

Acordingly to the SAKWiki – Timekeeper Alarm is possibly the first Victorinox model to incorporate electronic tools. Interesting detail – all other knives with electronic tools (except Expedition Lite and SwissChamp XAVT) are based on Climber model, but this one – on Tinker. Electronic tools in this model the same as in Voyager: Digital Clock / Alarm / Timer.

The scales of Timekeeper Alarm doesn’t contains placeholder for tweezers (even shorten one), probably this is can be a proof of fact that this knife was a first model with electronic tools (but Altimeter model also has the same scales!)

More modern models (Voyager, Traveller) has redesigned scales, which can fit toothpick, tweezers, pen and stainless pin.

456. Traveller

Traveller model is a “enhanced” variation of famous Climber model – it has the same tools and additionally electronic tools in scales.

From another perspective, we can call Traveller as a combination of two previously released models – Altimeter and Voyager. As we remember, Altimeter knife had all Climber tools plus digital Thermometer / AltimeterVoyager – again, had Climber tools plus Digital clock / alarm / timer. Traveller model includes all these digital tools (and additionally – Thermometer).

Interesting fact #1: in order to fit in scales all electronic tools, this model includes specially designed (shorten!) tweezers.

Interesting fact #2: name “Traveller” was previously used by Victorinox for another knife – original Traveler was a regular Climber but without key-ring.
