Introduced in 2006 replacing the XXLT.
The XAVT was revised in 2017 following the merging of the Victorinox and Wenger product lines with the Wenger Universal Wrench replacing the second magnifying glass. This was probably the first time a Wenger tool featured in a Victorinox model. It is not known if the tool was modified to fit the XAVT.
In 2021 this model was withdrawn and replaced by the XXL, which is the same model, but with regular scales.
