2nd Junk Invicta in less than a Month
on October 27, 2009
Bought an automatic Invicta pro-diver from Shop NBC and it arrived with the Crown broken. I sent it back and got a refund. I then decided to give Invicta another shot. I purchased this watch and it looks very nice. The band is a bit noisy and the clasp is very cheap. It gains a few minutes a day for some reason, this happens even if I take it off for a 12 hour plus period of time. I searched the web for tools for sizing of the band and decided to make my own from an old mini- screwdriver, a grinder and a vise. It was suposed to have the Invicta polishing cloth in the package, it did not. As far as the watch being a great value, I don't really think so. I think they are mass produced junk. People compare them to Rolex and Tag all of the time. Well, I own both of these watches, and let me tell you.......it is nothing.....and I mean nothing like either a Tag or a Rolex. Save your money, get a real watch.

Watch is still working, and gaining time each day. The band/clasp that rests on my desk at work is very scratched and starting to look like an old watch. The front and the crystal are like new. Must be a very low grade stainless used on the band, but, I suppose I knew that based on the sound it makes.
01-7-10 - Watch is working great, I like it more the more I wear it. It may gain time, but my Rolex loses time at about the same rate, which drives me nuts. It has turend out to be a pretty rugged watch..... I am changing my views on Invicta.
I have encountered a new problem this past year. The watch pins keep breaking and the watch keeps falling off. Each time I go to the jewler store and get new ones only to las a few days. I need to find some heavy duty pins, watch is too heavy for the pins it came with origionally. And all the new ones I get are even worse. Watch still gains a couple of min a day time which I dial back. No scratches on crystal yet, pretty durable. You get what you pay for.
