Default It's an Invicta....

and its one of the nicest watches I've ever bought. I bought it used but it looks like it was never worn this thing is beautiful and it was under 100.00.

NOW TAKE NOTE. If you ever buy an Invicta and it breaks throw it away because the company itself sucks when it comes to warranties that's why you never buy them new..

Always buy the ones that say Swiss movement or Swiss made.

Never spend over 100.00..

Looks great. The pictures don't really do it justice.

I have a couple of Invicta watches. This is my daily wear...automatic and certified to 600 feet although I have never worn it in more than 10 foot depth
I have never paid more than $150.00 new for any of the Invictas I own. Their MSRP prices are stupid and anyone that pays anywhere near those is looking to be bent over

I had three Invectas, purchased over the last 4 years. Each of them failed in unexpected ways ó hands fell off, face trim rings (under the crystal) came loose, etc.

I like their designs, but wonít be back...

On my second Invicta. First suffered from fogged lens, so thought it was my fault when I did a battery change, even though I have the correct tools to do so. This one is self-winding. The watch can't go over a day and a half of non-movement. It is also perennially slow; I need to reset it every couple of days. I like their designs, but this will be my last Invicta much as others have said.

I've got several. A couple have failed.

Buy an Invicta for appearance's sake, and for no other reason.

I agree there are a lot of lemons that is why you don't pay any type of money for them...

Yes their warranty sucks that is why if they fail you throw them out.

I havenít seen one yet that I would care to own, but to each his own... If you like them, thatís all that matters. To me, they are just piles of junk using low grade parts.

I've said that about past corvettes that I've owned but I still tortured myself and bought more...

i've always liked Seiko watches, especially after my brother returned from Japan in 1966 wearing one. He eventually gave me the watch.

My last two purchases were not Seikos though...one is an Armani (designed):





, and the other a Bernoulli. The Bernoulli (and my brothers 1966 Seiko) are the only two of the 10 or so watches I have that are not electric.
