Looks competes with Rolex Daytona,
This review is from: Invicta Men's 9212 Speedway Collection 18k Gold-Plated and Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
I own this watch.
If you do a web search for the Rolex Daytona and you look at a close up picture of it side by side with the Invicta Speedway you may find as I that the Invicta looks every bit as nice and some may even think better.
While all functions on the Speedway work as described, they are not the same as the Daytona and the fact is the Daytona would be the better watch for timing purposes. However, if that was really an issue with me I would want something larger (hand held) and most likely I would prefer a digital read out. And of course you have to remember the Speedway here is $129 and not $8K plus!
The watch has run flawless for me and it looks much, much better than pictured. It is rather large but I like the size and feel. I have an average wrist size and in fact had to remove 3 links and still feel the watch looks nice and is not to large for my arm.
The gold plating is very highly polished and my only concern is, as it is plating and not solid gold, will that be a problem down the road. For that reason I do not wear the watch every day or when I think I would be doing something that would be hard on any of my jewelry. However, if I had the Rolex I would not be wearing it while working with my hands either. For that matter, I have a timex for that reason. As you can not see through plating, this looks every bit as good as solid gold. If this is an issue for you, you may want to look at the all stainless version of this watch.
This is my third Invicta and I purchased a forth for my wife. All have been trouble free.
At this price I am very happy with my purchase and have no second thoughts about it at all. Every time I have it on I get comments on the watch. I rate this watch at 4.5 stars with the only one draw back that keeps it from getting 5 stars. The product (tritenite) Invicta uses to illuminate in the dark dims rather quickly. This is the case with all Invicta watches as to date and I always take off a half to full point for that reason alone. This may not be an issue for you at all.
Bottom line it is a fabulous looking time piece. It looks every bit as good as the Rolex that cost thousands and it has a very, very modest price. I have no second thoughts about this purchase.
