Ambassador

A 74mm gold plated Victorinox Ambassador with satin finish and no key-ring (0.6500.80). The Victorinox Ambassador is a 74mm Swiss Army knife.
This model is essentially a slightly larger version of the well known 58mm Classic, although generally does not include a keyring.
Early North American brochures list an Alox scaled version, without a keyring, as the Lady Victoria.

History 

In North America the Lady Victoria name appears to predate the Ambassador name. The Lady Victoria had smooth Alox handles and no keyring. Many smooth alox scaled versions were also used in advertising and had company names on them. The Alox scaled knives don't include the toothpick or tweezers.
