I read just about every post here that mentions Invicta and was surprised that there was no mention of Woot's recent sale of the Invicta 8926 for $65 plus $5 shipping.
It seemed like too good a deal to pass up, after I read up on the watch.
Anyway, I got mine yesterday and am pleased with the overall build, feel and quality. I like the stock band (but agree that I could do without the word "Invicta" carved into the side of the case!)..
Any thoughts on the price I paid? Since I definitely consider Woot a better place to buy than ebay, I figured I did pretty well.
How about care and maintenance of my first automatic? I currently wear a Buulova Millennia quartz, but I'm going to make the Invicta my new everyday watch. At most it will go 24 hrs without a wearing on the weekends, which I assume should be sufficient to keep it in good time (or not?). I also will most likely wear this watch sailing (which may involve the occasional submersion... not really diving... more like falling!). Should I have the gaskets changed / checked annually Or less frequently? I will always rinse the salt water off the watch, off course.
Also... for service... seems like Invicta's service department doesn't get the highest points... any other recommendations for service, or am I pretty much stuck with them?
Thanks for your thoughts in advance,
