the nicest watches in my collection.
I see comments stating "do not pay over $200 for an Invicta." This puzzles me because usually the sub $200 Invictas are the knockoff versions of other brands. That doesn't interest me because clearly Invicta is capable of unique beautiful timepieces of their own creation, like the Lupah Revolution with a 25 jewel swiss movement that I posted above. Make sure you look at the amazon photos of the exhibition caseback, it's beautiful. It's also one of the few Invicta's i've seen with a serial number as it is a reserve "limited edition."
Yes, I paid $800 for an Invicta, but I like it more than my $1800 Tag and get more complements on it than the Tag as well.
I'm simply asking: What is wrong with this watch? What is wrong with Invicta that so many knock the brand when IMO they make some wonderful timepieces if you stay away from the knockoffs. I own only about 3 of their watches, but so far I haven't had a problem. I just think it's kind of backwards that watch collectors tend to go for the cheapo Rolex submariner knockoff Invicta and tell people to stay away from their own unique creations. I get that when you get above $300 you can start buying fantastic watches from other manufacturers, but IMO some of the best Invicta's are over that price point. I can't find the link but there was a Pro Diver with a meteorite dial and a swiss automatic Valjoux movement for about $1,400. It did not have the rolex styling, it was completely unique and one of the nicest looking watches I've seen and for a Swiss automatic, didn't seem too expensive. had I the cash when I saw it, I probably would have purchased it. BUt then I read comments on sites like this and begin to question my judgement, and that's the purpose of this topic.
Can somebody explain why this is a bad watch and not worth its value? I truly think it's one of the nicest and most unique watches I've ever seen. I'm curious as to what you guys think, because I definitely don't know as much about watches as some of you here.
Yes, I know Invicta's MSRPs are ridiculous and that turns many people off, as it is technically shady business practices, but I don't let that deter me from enjoying a good product, and some of their watches IMO are simply good products.
