I saw this in a Victorinox email and still not convinced it's not an early April Fools Day joke.

The Survival Rx™ by Victorinox and GlassesUSA
The first of its kind, Survival Rx™ glasses go back to the basics: survival tools for your everyday adventures. The two companies found a way to combine a basic health necessity, such as prescription eyewear, with built-in tools from the iconic Swiss Army Knife that avoid the hassle of carrying multiple objects in your pocket or bag. The glasses will be produced in a limited edition of 1000 pieces and each pair will be numbered.

To preorder from GlassesUSA - https://www.glassesusa.com/swissarmy
I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

I would hope this is a joke. Otherwise it would make a great addition to those that collect Victorinox stuff. It is the oddities and flops that are most sought after since they will be scarce due to being fundamentally flawed.

The trend in eyeglasses would appear to be the lightest weight and unobtrusive pair that can be made and this goes against that by adding bits of metal.

I didn’t see the video at first and the parts do detach. Somebody just ran with the idea. While neat, it doesn’t seem like a commercial product to me.

Since Victorinox and GlassesUSA were quiet yesterday, figured there was a slight chance this could be a thing.
Nope.

This came via email today.
Turns out they were playing the long game.

I got the same thing. 65% off is pretty good. I might pick up a pair of Ray Bans or Oakleys.

Hasn't done a damn thing for my popularity. I demand a refund.
