This watch is a direct AMAZON purchase. It arrived today, and is DEFINITLY SWISS MADE.
Not SWISS PARTS made in THAILAND.
It fuctions perfectly, as to accuracy AND Hand positions to their index marks.
It its flawlessly finished And BIG! When I say Big, I mean heavy too. It has a LOONG bracelet, and is built for a LARGE wrist or more likely display.
It's one of the nicest INVICTA watches I've seen, and I have many (20?)
It's Calibre is a RONDA 8040N, RONDA's top of the line Chronograph day/Date.
Swiss Made means 13 Jewels, Gilt as opposed to "Swiss Parts" which is 6 Jewels, nickle plated. One (13 Jewels) is twice the quality of the other. Their fuctions are identical. Reason: Cost.
I'm still testing it and will report back on accuracy and any other negitive impressions.
So far under $400 is a bargin. Invicta is becoming a MAJOR force in watchmaking.
Thanks to all who put it my hands!
UPDATE: This watch has passed the 24 hour Chronograph Test with 100% accuracy. Dead on my Atomic clock. It still continues to run at 100% in watch mode.
I should mention-The BEZEL: It is perfectly smooth with 1/2 min click intervals. It is LARGE, easy to turn and accurate to whatever setting you choose. It has a very firm and positive click which is VERY satisfying. No wobble or loseness at all.
It is capped by domed Sapphire crystal, which is beatifully set and gives the watch a "Quality Depth" with a really nice Blue Cast.
"RUNS LIKE A SWISS WATCH " couldn't be truer.
