    It arrived in the mail today. So small against the modern monstrosity that uses the company name.

    What a boat anchor.

    This though....this was worth picking up for under $20. This Invicta was made in the 60's or early 70's by the general style. The case is full stainless with sharp unpolished edges. The crystal does show its age with scratches and a small crack.

    The watch has a reasonable 35mm size vs the 50mm monster. Yeah...50mm....wear it around my neck and call myself Flava Flave if would not drag my tastes down as it would my body to the deepest parts of the ocean.

    What powers this real Invicta is an FHF\ST 96-4 17 jewel movement.

    All on a vintage leather band with curved spring bars....... I finally have an Invicta I can happily say I own. Back to the drawer with the monster and into the collection with the real one. Sadly if I say I own an Invicta without showing it.....someones opinion would be lowered of me.

    The top one, not even if you were blind. The second one, massive improvement.

    I could carry the first one on a chain for self defense. Swing that thing around my head.....

    What is sad is that I paid more for the monster. It was $25 with a discount at the pawn shop. The manager said, and he was a smart guy, no Invicta (Modern) is worth more than $25. I had a 10% discount as an employee at the time plus I used one of their batteries.

    I`d read a lot of slagging off of modern Invicta`s but could never be bothered to check them out-that gold coloured one is worse than I could have possibly imagined !!

    That is why I bought it....it was so over the top. It is like a massive 10 car pileup on the highway....you have to look. Think the same thing too...."I hope no one got hurt by that".

    Yes, but mr Trump is about to change that law... He says this is a Fantastic American Watch! Also Richard Rawlings has one!
