Victorinox Classic Zodiac series: Capricorn, with gift box

Victorinox Zodiac Classic: Capricorn

This is a Victorinox Classic (Aries Capricorn) from the (original) Zodiac series. Knives from these series all have one of the zodiac signs inlaid on the front scale.

Which is obviously not the same as the modern Traveller (with an electronic timepiece, thermometer, altimeter, etc. in the front scales). This Traveller has a company logo on the front, so the Victorinox logo is on the rear (the corkscrew side). The Camper has
