TimeKeeper Alarm

Victorinox Timekeeper Alarm. Picture by jazzbass. The Timekeeper Alarm is possibly the first Victorinox model to incorporate electronic tools.
This knife extends the popular Tinker by replacing the tweezers in the top scale with a digital timepiece containing alarm and timer functions.

Name disambiguation:
The Timekeeper is a similarly named, but completely different model, which features an analogue clock in one scale, and a different toolset.

Discontinued model.

Layer Tools

Back Layer Tools

Scale Tools


Textured red translucent scales. These scales are standard on knives with the electronic tools scale.


Limited information, however there appears to be a nearly identical model that replaces the Phillips with the corkscrew.
There may also be a version that removes the opener-layer and replaces the small blade with the Combo-tool.
One of these models maybe named the Digital Timekeeper.


The Timekeeper was Victorinox's first model to contain a clock, which was an analogue clock mounted on one scale. The Timekeeper Alarm came out later featuring the digital clock - There was also the Voyager model which had timer functions and additional/different tools. The Timekeeper Alarm was discontinued in 2006 or 2007. Both were ultimately replaced by the Traveller model which has all the digital scale functions combined together in one unit.
