    Be Honest, What's the Most You Have Spent on an Invicta Watch ???

    This is not an Invicta bashing thread, as I own three, and believe if you have paid a sensible price they represent terrific value. That fact is that there MRP prices are somewhat crazy, and I wondered if anyone has ever been caught out. In the UK Invicta watches cost more, and I suppose for obvious reasons. The most I have spent is on an 8927, which from memory was about £79. The question is, have you ever been caught out, or do you have any interesting stories ?

    The most expensive new Invicta I bought was $47 USD around 20 years ago (photo attached). Even has a sapphire crystal. Nicely sized at around 38mm.

    I bought the two others I have on the used market. One was a NOS version of this same watch and the other was a Speedway chrono. I actually paid more for the NOS example of this watch than the original. If I recall correctly I think it cost me $75 a couple of years ago when I spotted it on ebay.

    Just got an Invicta 25644 for $105 shipped.

    Not my picture, but someone else on WUS. My only complaint is that the buckle is A: sharp: and B: scratches the hell out of my wrist. It needs to be replaced ASAP. I'm also trying to find a Zulu with bronze hardware for it. What a PITA THAT search is.

    I have had 5 or so invicta watches, they all broke after a few months. You will see them on deal sites for much less than theirprices.
    They basically run the business that way, only selling when on promo.

    $150, and man did I think I scored a bargain. Not a bad price for a lesson, all things considered. Far cheaper than my divorce.
    I have some watches

    I bought this ... unique Invicta watch for $130. It looked like a fun watch, but when it arrived it was about 1/2" bigger than I anticipated. I wore it for fun for a few months and sold it for ... checking eBay ... $92. In retrospect, that was worth $38, the lesson on giant invicta watches being a thing.

    The Invicta 8926OB was/is the only Invicta that I have ever bought. It was/is my first automatic watch. I have owned it for about 2 years now. It keeps great time after I regulated it. The lume is terrible, the pip fell out, and the crystal is scratched up. I think it was $70 at the time of purchase (yes, I know they go down to ~$50 on sale). I don't regret getting the watch, and I also don't think all Invicta watches suck as many people state. They make some (to me) hideous designs; however, there are exceptions. They also have a long and well-established horological history. Invicta is older than many well-known "accepted" watch companies and yet it catches a lot of hate; especially from some Youtubers that obviously need to stay on their medications.
