A good, not great watch from Invicta,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicta Men's 9224 Speedway Collection Gold-Tone Chronograph S Series Watch (Watch)
Owning multiple Invicta watches the Speedway falls just short of their usual high standards. First let me say Amazon made an error and this is not a 44mm watch, more like 40mm so it'll be just a bit smaller then you might expect.
The finish on the watch is good overall but there are some small nagging issues surrounding the clasp and band. First, the clasp is lightly made, poorly finished on the edges, and just feels "cheap". The band is well polished but the edges are a bit sharp for lack of a better word. The band and clasp even sound cheap, with a tin on tin sound when you handle it.
Not one of Invictas best efforts in my opinion, a good watch for the money, but I'm used to getting great watches for the money from Invicta.

Hey, I'm looking to buy an Invicta watch, I really liked this but not too sure after your review, I was wondering if you could tell me which Invicta watch you'd recommend that has a similar look? Thanks.

Any of the Invicta Pro Diver are really nice. The non chronograph pro divers are better than the chronograph ones in my opinion. Ask your self, what corners are they cutting to price a chronograph at or near the same price of a non chrono? I think that's what happened with this watch. Check out the Bulova Marine stars, more money for sure, but better made than the Invictas and some are a near copy of an Omega Seamaster.
