Summary: I love the watch and my boyfriend loves the watch. I had heard good things about Invicta and always thought they were a good company. But had read some negative comments on amazon. I took a risk that I wish I hadn't. The pin that holds the band to the face kept coming out and one day it came out while he was walkin which caused the watch to fall off, which broke the second hand and another in the face.
Summary: First of all, wait till the price drops to $75. It periodically does and fluctuates between $75 and $90. The blue interior well changes to magenta or purple depending on the light intensity and angle. That is what I like the most about this watch. I feel that it runs 1-2 minutes/week fast, but that is acceptable for an automatic self-wind watch. This is a big and heavy watch, be aware of it. But it is stylish, cute and fun to wear. I love it, no defects/failures so far.
Summary: Where in the world are you going to get a watch of this quality for this kind of cash? I love it. The Automatics are a pain but so is paying someone every 2 years to change the batteries. Now I have 20 to 30 watches that need batteries..because time flies no pun intended..well maybe a little. The only thing I would change is the date window. I like the magnified date window. This is a beautifull watch. no regrets.
Summary: I have had this watch for nearly a year & it has held up better than my Rolex's, TAG's or Omega's have! It is GORGEOUS, durable and it's large size (But, thankfully, NOT RIDICULOUSLY LARGE!) makes it a real conversation starter!! People always ask me what make my watch is when I wear it. I have never had any problems with this watch.
Summary: I owned one of these watches before, and loved it. it didn't fog up but,it appeared to have a haze on the inside of the crystal though. I bought at Costco for $78 and had it for several months. returned it because it gained time (about 5 min every 2 weeks). have regretted it every since. when I seen it here I had to buy it , even if it cost much more than my last one, I know its worth it.
Summary: Normally I really like the Invicta Watches, however this one I returned because the knob that you use to adjust the time and other functions popped right off the first time I tried to adjust anything. It looked like it was glued on. I am not sure if this model are all like this, maybe this one was a fluke.
Summary: I really like the looks of this watch. It is large, but not overly so. Bold, but not overly so. I was hoping for more fluidity in the second hand sweep(it has several stops per second but not enough to appear in constant motion). Only had it for 10 days but time is accurate so far. The window in the back is a nice feature that you never see. The screw down is also cool. The price was great compared to other simular watches and other sites.
Summary: It looks good but cheap quality. Got it for my birthday, had it for less than a year. I paid to have the band fixed and then a few weeks later, the second hand just came off for no reason. I googled that problem online and it seems to be a prevalent problem.
Summary: I'm going to cut right to the point. Everyone's complaints about this watch fogging up after a few weeks is absolutely true. Dont think that its just a fluke, this watch will fog up inside. Its not horrible, you can still see the time just fine, and it is still attractive, but it is disappointing. That being said, the first week that I owned this watch was easily worth 100 of the $160. The dial is a brilliant deep blue.
Summary: This is my second Invicta Watch and I love it! It is a man's watch because of it's heft: 15 mm thick. When I was shopping, I typed in Invicta into Google and came up with thousands of distributors. The first one wanted $149.95 and then the second one wanted $129.00. Not too bad for this particular watch. Then I remembered Amazon. Their price was $119.95 and because it was Christmas, free shipping.
