3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful watch but durability is lacking, August 15, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicta Men's 1091 Russian Diver Stainless Steel and Black Polyurethane Mechanical Watch with Skeleton Window (Watch)
Durability was an issue, I had the watch less than 2 weeks and the gears started to slip when winding the watch. If I held the watch at an angle the gears would function, this went on for a few days before the entire spring slipped and the watch completely stopped functioning. Panic set in and I decided to see what choice I had in either returning the item to Amazon or following up with Invicta. Invictia wanted $28 dollars check or money order from me along with re-shipping costs to their repair center. Repair center would take 60 to 90 days before the watch would be returned to me... needless to say for a watch that failed less than a month of ownership I returned the item to Amazon and will be waiting for my refund. Still undecided if I should go with another Invicta product, overall I was impressed with the quality of the watch aesthetically. If I do purchase another Invicta I'll steer clear of the mechanical models; may be I was unlucky and got a dud but I would hate to see someone purchase this and have to return it every few months after it fails and wait nearly 2 to 3 months to get the product returned.

Same with me, i wound up the watch to see it working in all its beauty and when i put it on my wrist and change the angle the movement stopped working. If i tap the case it works for about 10 sec then stops again, what a pity as its truly a wonderful looking watch. I will contact Amazon to see about a replacement watch on monday

Had the 1927 model for only 6 days. The mechanism started acting funny. If I wanted to set the time at 3 O'clock, the hour arm would rest in the middle of 2 and 3. The minute arm would be at 12 where it's supposed to be, but the hour arm, that was all over the place. Sad.
