Not sapphire as mentioned in Product Specification
on February 10, 2013
First this watch is very nice looking. it's big, heavy and still pretty comfortable (thanks to the crown being on the left!) however, i was a bit disappointed in the color.. it's more of a navy/violet blue. i own other Invicta watches including a 1089 mechanical, which was the sort of blue i was expecting. the first picture is basically the actual color, guess i thought it could of just been how the picture was taken and expecting it to look more like the 2nd, 3rd and 4th image. anyway, it's still a great looking watch. also want to mention that in the product specification area it claims to be Sapphire, it is NOT, it's flame fusion which is what the watch list in the back. it is a bit misleading since i had that factored into one of the reasons to purchasing this watch. lastly, there is no real light source. the needles do glow but only if they were exposed to light and even that is rather useless as they don't glow more than an hour later after being exposed to a bright light source. i would of gave it 5 star if the watch had some type of backlight or better "glow" that lasted more than 30-60 minutes.
