I have small wrists and the watch looks good and fits great. There is plenty of room for large wrists as well and it fits my larger framed friends just as well.
The watch band is awesome. The leather inside with canvas out looks great and is super comfortable. It did start to show wear after about a year and I had to replace it after a year and a half but now it's customized and even cooler.
Chrono and date still work flawlessly.
I was looking for a military/aviation style, something that has a "field watch" kind of look to it, along the lines of a Bell & Ross -- but without spending two grand, and without the kind of overly done commitment to the look that Bell & Ross has. Don't get me wrong, as a less costly kind of Panerai, Bell & Ross does great and very amazing things, if someone wants to spend that much, but, just for me, some models are bit too austere in the design.
I do like the Wengers I have gotten, which are similar in style, and of course Wenger has the better reputation, at least for Invicta haters, but then again people are just fools to buy for reputation, instead of quality and value. Oddly, the "hundred dollar" Wengers I have bought feel like "cheap" watches, even though they are of "true" Swiss heritage, whereas my Invictas always exceed their price tag, by light years, in terms of what you get, for what you pay. So, once more Invicta haters are out to lunch and never let those foolishly prejudicial opinions sway your mind, if you're looking to get a phenomenal watch for a very modest price.
Soft, ready-to-wear leather strap, 100m water resistance (same as a three thousand dollar Bell & Ross offers), chronograph, date window, accurate time keeping, a superior look and style to watches twenty times this price tag -- what's not to love??
Regarding the cloth covered leather, it's a different kind of look, yes, but has the durability of leather with the "field" look of a canvas-looking cloth covering, and, in my opinion, this black version of the model series compliments the cloth strap, the most. Of course you can always change straps anyway, but, to me, the textured cloth only adds to the military/aviation kind of style here and the stenciled numbers on the face really seals the deal, complimented by the prominently red second-hand, and, putting it all together, the look is truly astonishing and completely satisfying. It just looks phenomenal on the wrist.
Ordinarily I don't buy "lower" priced Invictas, since I usually just really prefer the look of the Reserve collection pieces, and prefer some of the features on Reserve pieces (sometimes not found around the one hundred dollar or less mark). But, I've been looking at these "I Force" editions for a while, and for under a hundred dollars, it was worth it just to see what Invicta provides, for the paltry sum being asked.
Needless to say, they provide a LOT. In keeping with their pledge to bring the look and features of "high end" watches to the marketplace that "anyone" can afford, they certainly have succeeded here! I don't even see a five grand Panerai or three grand Bell & Ross that even has this styling. They are actually rather boring, by comparison, so I think Invicta has done really well here, in nailing that military/aviation type of look as good as, or frankly better than, anyone else out there.
It's my first "lefty" watch, but, as others have noted, you don't have to wear it as such -- it actually is really great, on the left hand, to have all of the watch controls on the other side of the dial, since you don't ever hit them when bending your wrist. So, go ahead and wear it as you like it, since there is no "rule" of style in this case, and it actually is a nice convenience, to have this "lefty" style.
Chronograph feature is very cool -- look up vids to see how it works -- since the counter spins for a full minute in initial time-keeping. I always like those added animations that watches have, and I'm glad to see Invicta provided it. I really love the red second hand. Often, watches might have a cool looking large single hand, but very often it's the chronograph sweep, so you rarely see it in motion. Here, the dominant red hand is the second hand, so you get to see it working all the time, and against the white face features and black dial, it's impressive.
Size is also impressive, but it's a light watch, and wears very, very easy, especially with the soft strap, the back of which is not cloth-covered, so it's leather that's against the skin. Fitment was perfect, with the strap neither too long nor too short.
It is a "lower end" Invicta, so no screw down crown, or screw-sealed function buttons, but Invicta has never failed me with water resistance, so I have no worries. It's mineral crystal, instead of their synthetic sapphire "flame-fusion" crystal found on models a bit more expensive, but it looks great, and I have no plans to climb Everest wearing it, so I think it will not be an issue, in terms of durability.
Overall, I am more than pleased, and got far, far more than I expected. I bought another lower priced Invicta once, many years ago, just as a "tool" kind of watch, and I still wear it for rough and tumble tasks, and it still performs great. It never has disappointed me, and looked far more pricey than I paid, although it is more of a simple look than, for example, Reserve models I own. I'd say this model that I just received is substantially more surprising in how incredible it looks, feels, and thus far performs -- it really just presents itself as a much more substantially priced piece, not just as an Invicta, but even stacked against watches with much, MUCH heftier price tags.
So, another absolute winner for Invicta, and at a price point that is frankly astonishing, for the features and styling provided. I don't see anything else in the marketplace that can compare -- not just at this price, but even at much higher prices.
And, for anyone worried about quality control issues, which can be a case with ANY watch, at ANY price, such is the joy of shopping on Amazon. If for any reason the watch arrives and is not working, or has issues under its warranty, simply get it replaced or repaired.
I haven't had to do so, with any Invicta I've owned, with the exception of one watch I dropped off a cliff while hiking, which was my fault, obviously, and, in that case, one of the indicating markers came loose -- Invicta fixed it back to be as good as new, in less than two weeks. So, while I know a lot of complaints are made about servicing Invicta watches, keep in mind that, as countless satisfied customers can attest to, most of us have never even had to use customer service. I have over nearly forty of these now, bought over many years, and that's not luck, that none of them have ever needed servicing, nor is it a fluke -- it's a testament to the quality of Invicta.
Not to take away from those who have had an axe to grind, of course, as everyone has their own experience, but I'm just saying that, as evidenced even here on Amazon, the good reviews far outweigh the not so good, so, before passing on the brand, I'd encourage you to at least give it a try. To date, they are the best watches at the best prices, bar none, in my experience, and I believe this more than ever, having paid so little for this time piece and being absolutely and markedly impressed by it.
In summary, for this watch:
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
Don't know why they covered a nice leather band with cloth material that make the band look like a child's watch. Someone called it "technofiber".
The crown does not screw down as other diver watches. This worries me so I won't be swimming or showering with it. Maybe some new technology?
Easy to read face
Black case and black buckle
Good looking - gets compliments
Crown and pushers on the left
EZ set date
Good luminosity on the dial and hands
Paid less than one Benjamin when it was on sale with no tax or shipping
Cloth on top of real leather?
Date window is too tiny for this big of a watch face - could use a magnify window
Crown is NOT screw down, so I won't be diving with this
Try to find a replacement leather strap with a black buckle!
Finally a "leftie". Great looking watch, easy to read hour markers, date window too small.
I'm using the first hole in the band, and this offsets the watch on my wrist. The buckle wants to center itself on the bottom of my wrist. I'll try it for a while to see if it bothers me too much, but according to other reviewers, the band probably won't last that long anyway.
Can't wait to try it on the "Don Juan" cuff bracelet that I've had for over thirty years and used with several watches.
The second hand I like.
There was no instruction booklet in the package to guide you through the set up and how to operate the several functions.
Overall (four hours), it's what I was looking for. Delivery was as promised, packaging intact.
Watchband wore out as expected, got a black link stainless band. Yesterday, I checked the time, and it was nine minutes behind the atomic clock I used to set with. Reset, lost 20 mins in 24 hours. Wanted to start a warranty claim, but reading the INVICTA instructions, there's a $28.50 charge applied as soon as they get the watch. Then, it's shipped overseas for repair. They say expect a 90 day turnaround.
So,I got the watch for Fathers Day, wore it for four months, replaced the strap,now it seems the battery is going away. I can have the battery replaced for about $10, but if someone other than INVICTA opens the case, the warranty is voided. I'm not happy.
I know there are several different manufacturers that have similar(not lefty)watches at this price point, and I'll be trying one of them next time.
probably worth a 2.5 star rating now.
