I was trying to figure out this same thing last week -- WoW (I think -- maybe ChronoShark) had one at a pretty nice discount. The line seems to all be Japan-sourced quartz, and the prices are all north of $150. I'm not sure its Casio, because Casio has a separate "Casio Redline" product line (as do Android and Nixon, apparently). Those are unmistakably marked "Casio" -- whereas these "Redline" watches are only marked as such.
Oddly, I can't get a clear visual of the case back on any of the retail sites (Amazon, WoW, eWatches, szul). It's like they don't want you to be able to read the caseback... Szul says 5 year manufacturer warranty, though...
Chrono shark has another one up there today (3/7/2011). An automatic with a Miyota 8515 21 jewel movement. (Red Line 50013-11)
I have no idea who really makes them...
cant believe no one knows, google has been no help to me. that auto on chronshark is peaking my interest
i mean 80 bucks for a good looking watch, miyota auto and solid endlinks.....
just copped it. i can careless who makes it at this point. the watch is gorgeous. Dear lord please don't let it be invicta. lol
I think this is a brand new brand/sub-brand. The last time I looked at WOW, they had three watches, all quartz. Now they have 14, including a few autos. It's like they are just getting the stock in. Plus, there is no trace of this brand on any forum before January.
So I'd consider it YMMV at this point, buyer beware. I don't think its made by Invicta, though -- they don't have any on ShopNBC.
yup, it's SWI. Here's their website:
Welcome to The SWI Group
Too many watches, not enough wrists.
"The new servant of the sun has aspirations to become its master. A prosthetic device, yes: worn on the wrist, watches tie people to the celestial clockwork. Hundreds of millions of them, lying in what pockets, on what wrists, under what sleeves, revolve in time with it. Yet although they watch the sun, watches have established a kind of independence. They tick as remorselessly through the night as through the day, through the winter as through the summer, as though their environment is not going through vast changes in each 24 hours and each year. These perturbations are part of the lives of all other animals, but people have been encouraged by their clocks to ignore the daily and seasonal cycles and to pretend that there is nothing to contend with but metronome-paced linear time. We appear to have caged the sun inside a machine." Michael Young, The Metronomic Society, p. 204
