Victorinox Altimeter The Victorinox Altimeter is a 91mm Swiss Army Knife that adds a digital thermometer and altimeter to the popular Climber.

The Altimeter Plus adds a woodsaw to the Altimeter model.

As of around 2008 the Altimeter and Altimeter Plus models were discontinued being replaced with the Traveller models.

  1. The original version of the Altimeter Plus came without tweezers, the pen, and pin, but included the fine screwdriver on the reverse - US Model 53944.
  2. The Altimeter Plus Expedition Set model came with a leather case; a Maglite Solitaire; and a compass/level/ruler. This set included the back side fine screwdriver, tweezers, pen, pin, and eyeglass/jewelers screwdriver - US Model 53522.


This model became available in about 2000 and originally had the regular bottom scale. US model 53955 appears to be a later version with the new 'digital' bottom scale which holds all four scale tools: The removable ballpoint pen; toothpick; small tweezers; and straight pin.

The Altimeters are now withdrawn being replaced by the Traveller, which contains all digital functions (clock, timer, altimeter, barometer) in one digital unit.
