This review is from: Invicta Men's 1270 Specialty Chronograph Gold Dial 18k Gold Ion-Plated Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
After looking at a similar watch costing $500 - with a separate "tide-level" dial, but no date or any other complications - I came across this watch, made by a respected manufacturer, from whom I have another watch which I like very much. This Invicta watch is a chronograph, my first. Other than the difference in complications, this watch and the $500 watch seem to have the same exact dial, at least to my eye, and both are made in Asia, although the $500 watch features a Swiss movement and the Invicta Japanese - not a big deal in my book, as the Japanese seem to have quartz movements down quite well. The length of the band is quite generous, for those with a larger wrist; I had a few links removed at my local jeweler, as I have a fairly average-sized wrist. This watch is unashamedly gold in color (plated - well plated), making it very much "in", as gold has made a resurgence. It wears well - not too heavy, not too light, and keeps its position well on the wrist. In addition to having the few links removed, I also took advantage of the "fine-tune" adjustment on the clasp, making it a perfect fit. I like the watch a little bit loose, but not so loose that the dial flips around the wrist; it always stays "right side up." I have not taken advantage of the subdials (and probably will never have need to), but the watch keeps good time and is relatively easy to read, despite the gold on gold; the hands are distinguished by their iridescence, another feature lacking in the $500 dollar watch I looked at. This watch was a good value, selling for less than $100: functional, stylish, and down-right sexy. I would not wear this as an everyday watch, but it is a fine accessory for a night on the town!
