    Android has been doing avante-garde at very affordable prices going back years, not sure how many. I've had Chinese movements, Swiss, Miyotas in my Androids. I consider them a welcome player in horology offering something stylistically unusual.

    I never really noticed them until I went to the Island Watch website and saw them... and then the other day I found this thread for the Divemaster Enforcer Tritium. Still though for $450, I could get a Lum-Tech. But still this Android has me thinking....

    I've always thought about picking one up to check out. Ever since seeing equilibrium and seeing that dual dial alien watch I wondered about the Android watches.

    I have an Octopus and its been the best of my several Miyota movement containing watches accuracy wise (~+5 to 6 sec/day on avg.). I like the styling a lot overall, the only thing that doesn't quite do it for me is the big 'arrow' hour hand. Other than that it's quite nice and well made.
    Current Watches:

    *1950's Omega Seamaster *Deep Blue DayNight Ops
    *Android Octopus *Armida A1
    *Seiko SRP027K1 *CW Trident Pro (gone but not forgotten)
    *Seiko 5 Military *G Gerlach ORP Dzik
    *Orient Blue Mako *Laco Squad
    *Vostok Amphibia *Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military
    *O&W Cobra *Ocean7 LM-3 V2
    *Seiko SKX007 *Precista PRS-18A
    *Seiko SNZJ61 *Oris Aquis
    *Vintage Zodiac Seawolf (incoming)

    While I don't own one I've never heard a bad thing about Android. I've always liked the Compressor style case of the Octopus, very cool.

    They seem to be decent enough watches for the money..

    I owned one a few years ago. The model I had was nice looking but very cheap feeling. Their watches are very trendy and models range from trendy to garish, IMO. Not sure I'd call them 'good' watches but they are similar in quality to Croton and Sturhling.

    They're a discount brand, so I'd try to buy on deep discounts. More recent models I've seen tend to be on the larger side (45-50mm) - again, trendy. If that's your bag, pick one up on sale and check it out.

    One point worth considering, if you're a flipper, is that discount brands tend to lose more value at a greater rate.

    Hope you like whatever you buy.

    I have one Android the Decoy, decent quality, not overly huge good quality leather strap, nice sandwich dial. I think recently they have been trying to keep up with Invicta going bigger and bigger, which I just don't get. Are they good watches? my answer would be yes.

    That's a good looking watch, your Android.

    I think Android is infinitely (all right, exaggeration) more interesting than Invicta. One thing I've noticed with Invicta is they always make their hands too small for the dial, and I imagine they save some money there on material and lume. The hands on your Android are fantastic.

    I have an Android enforcer with a 2824 swiss eta auto movement and although it is large for my taste (50 mm) it is well made and quite comfortable
