5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the money, good looking watch!, January 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicta Men's 0620 II Collection Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
The watch arrived ahead of estimate from Amazon. I was first impressed by the packaging from Invicta. A substantial, yellow presentation box which opened to reveal a carefully packaged and protected watch. It actually took me a few minutes to remove all of the protective "cling" plastic that covered the crystal, the watch back and even the bracelet. At first I thought the bracelet felt a little cheap until I realized it was shrink-wrapped plastic I was feeling. The case is heavy, and the back cover is nicely brushed and engraved. At 45mm diameter, the watch doesn't overwhelm a more slender wrist. It certainly can't be considered small, but it definitely doesn't come off as gaudy or "hey, look at my big watch"! However, the crystal, blue face and jewel-like appearance of the bezel have definitely elicited notice and positive comments. Definitely more impressive in person than in the photos. The chronograph functions make the watch visually interesting and technical-looking without being too "busy". Since setting the watch two weeks ago, it seems to have kept time accurately. I haven't gotten it wet yet, so I cannot vouch for it's water resistance performance. I haven't experienced the crown getting pulled out inadvertantly, as some comments have indicated - the retention seems solid enough. The watch bracelet was easy to size correctly at home, helped by the direction indicator arrows on the inside surface of the links and a cheap set of watch tools purchased through Amazon. The unidirectional bezel turns easily with a slightly metallic-sounding ratcheting function that isn't objectionable. Really, the only negative I've noticed is that the bracelet sounds a little cheap. By that I mean that it occasionally makes almost a quiet, creaking noise when the bracelet is flexed. It doesn't bother me enough to deduct a star, certainly not at the roughly $75 that I paid for a watch that looks great, feels substantial on your wrist and appears to keep good time. My first Invicta, and if this is the quality I can expect, it will not be my last.
