Invicta shames the likes of Rolex & TAG !,
I think anybody that would spend $5000.00 plus for the likes of a Submariner should have a head transplant espically when great watches like this Invicta 9310 are available for about $100.00. I own a Prague in this same style and love it, but wanted something a little more well made. Steinhart has a fantastic blue on blue divers watch that sells for $450.00 (a real bargin) that many believe outclasses the famous "Rolex Submariner". Only problem is that I got impatient waiting for it to become available again (Steinhart is a first class operation)! Not knowing anything about Invicta except for liking the looks of their products, I did some research and liked what I saw and read enough to order the 9310 Swiss Quartz Dive watch. I really did want an automatic watch but after reading all the info about needing to take them to a jewler every 2 years to have them cleand and oiled I thought - who needs all that - excpecilly after checking into the cost of oiling running about 80 bucks a throw - no way! I just got a 5 year battery installed in another watch for a 20 spot and that sounds a lot better then the previous. The 9310 is a heavy well made time piece.If I didn't know better I would swear that it is worth hundreds more then I paid. The word "INVICTA" is engraved in the side of the watch and looks really cool. Don't expect to get the watch that is in this advertisement with the neat red wings on the face with "SWISS" written under it because Invicta has changed the style of the 9310...but thats OK because the wings that are on the rear of the minute hand that is constantly going around is done really well and adds a certain classy look. Im not much on worring about packaging but the new yellow wave box this watch comes in is pretty darn cool (a 12 dollar box if bought by itself)as is the included $8.00 polishing cloth! The company also includes the easiest to understand instruction booklet on the market today. Don't get sucked in by paying thousands for a name as no watch is worth all that as any honest jewler will tell you...save that money to put towards a new car and use your brain to rationalize getting a watch that in my opinion is just as functional as the high price boys and really nice to look at. I can't wait to get all dressed up with my wife and wear my new watch to go out...wearing this cool watch makes you feel like you got a few bucks rubbing togeather in your pocket. Oh yea...when you first open your watch check out how well this item is wrapped to avoid any scratches. The corded hanging tag on the watch is even classier then the one on a Rolex. You want a first class,cool looking time piece without breaking the bank then get this 9310 Dive watch with it's Beautiful Blue/Blue face and gold trim...you will not be disappointed!

Question: Does your second hand "hit" squarely on each hour mark or half-way or somewhere "in-between" ?
