    Vintage Invicta?

    Hi everyone,
    I've read a lot on here about how generally disdained INVICTA is as a "new" brand. But what about their pre-1991 vintage watches? I picked up a nice looking vintage Invicta dress watch at a bric-a-brac store yesterday. I prefer vintage watches over modern watches generally, and this one caught my eye. It didn't break the bank, and I thought it would make a nice addition. Plus, it's an automatic (my first) and waterproof. From what I've read the "41 Jewels" dates it to the mid-60's??? But I can't find anything about vintage Invictas concerning quality, original price point, movements, etc. etc. Also, I haven't figured out how to set the date. Any and all info on this watch, or old Invictas generally, is most welcome. Thank you! Here's a couple photos:

    There's not much to find about the brand. Mine:





    Movement is an FHF-ST 96-4; c.1970.

    There has been at least one other Invicta posted with an FHF.

    Its History : Founded by R.Picard 1837; Invicta TM registered 1896. Other names used were Seeland Watch Co. and Eno watch Co.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.
