I really like both of these watches and plan to get them both at some point but I can't decide which one to get first. I don't own any Bauhaus style watches like the Bambino and I really like the casual look of this model with the camel suede strap and the hand winding and hacking is also cool. I already own a "dive watch" if the Invicta Pro Diver 8926OB is considered one even though if I get the SKX it will never be used for diving or even swimming (I own too may G-Shocks to dive in something I consider somewhat dressy). The 7S26 in the SKX is also a little lack luster when I can get an Invicta with a much nicer movement for less than half. Heck even the the Seiko SRPB27 has the same movement as the Invictas and is still cheaper than the SKX but I guess the price of the SKX is due to its ISO certification. Any bad experiences with either watch?
