5.0 out of 5 stars Invicta 9937 - best watch value on the market, September 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a 60+ year-old collector and hobbyist watchmaker. Over the years I have owned and worn such fine timepieces as the Rolex Submariner and GMT Master II; 1951 Omega Seamaster Chronometer, Patek Phillipes, several vintage Hamiltons and contemporary Blancpains. In my opinion, the build quality of the Invicta 9937 is understandably a few notches short of the Pateks and Blancpains -- but then it is, in some cases, less than one twentieth of their price -- at discount. Time will tell (no pun intended) but it appears to be at least the equivalent of the Rolexes in terms of durability. As to accuracy out of the box, it is the most precise automatic watch I have ever owned, besting even the 1951 Omega; against an atomic clock, it has varied only three seconds in a one-month period. That is astounding. Sure, the MSRP is inflated; that is a given in today's retail market. But if you know watches and you know real value, buy this watch. Wear it; use it hard. Take it to an honest, certified Rolex, Omega or any other high-end watchmaker. Compare the 9937 side-by-side with a Submariner, GMT, Seamaster or your choice of $2500-$5000-plus watches. Then ask yourself, which manufacturers are riding on hype and their brand name, asking and getting prices far in excess of their products' real value while their build quality and service decline, and which manufacturer is offering the public a product at a price -- even at its MSRP -- that is shockingly low for its tactile, visual and functional quality? Then go congratulate yourself on your buying decision. You won't be disappointed.
