Invicta Men's 1537 Reserve Chronograph,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicta Men's 1537 Reserve Venom Chronograph Silver Dial Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
I recently received this incredible Invicta Men's 1537 chronograph and in a word, it's stunning! This wristwatch is quite heavy due to its function of being a diver's watch. Mine arrived in a yellow Invicta watch box. I was a little surprised because the photo of the watch box was blue and looked much sharper. At any rate, I own several Invicta watches, and this is by far, the finest of them all. I bought an earlier model of this series in the past, the Invicta 5731 Reserve Subaqua Venom Black Ion plated Chronograph. Essentially, with the exception of a
couple of design modifications, the same watch. I had a problem with the black ion plating scraping off the metal band. This was an issue to the largeness of the timepiece. It takes some time to adjust for the size of this watch. It's not uncommon to bang it against a wall or a
door due to its heft. I've received many fine compliments on that watch and what's especially striking is the blue dial.
With this latest model, the #1537, you see the day as well as the date. I very much like the design and the calendar is very easy to see. Invicta makes very innovative watches and the accuracy is quite high. In regard to a previous reviewer, the only time one cannot wear this
watch is while wearing a dress shirt. It's not possible to tuck this watch under a sleeve. This unit is self contained and virtually shockproof. In the past, I called Invicta and asked them how long the battery in this quartz movement would last. I was told from 3-5 years. If one
uses the chronograph function extensively, it will be put a high drain on the battery. I like the way the entire dial illuminates when it has been exposed to either sunlight or natural light. Quite striking.
This is an extremely large and attention getting watch. I would put it up against many of the more expensive Swiss watches. Here you have quality, style and durability. I would highly suggest purchasing this Invicta from Amazon. You cannot beat the price and Amazon has a long history of selling quality Invictas. Don't wait, buy it today.
