For the Price, You Can't Do Much Better.
on June 30, 2016
It's not a Rolex, which may be a good thing. If you are looking for a durable,everyday watch, you really can't do much better than an Invicta. Like most volume watchmakers, with a strong on-line and shopping network presence, retail prices are a joke. NO ONE has ever paid retail for an Invicta, or anything close to retail.
About this watch, you get genuine leather straps, which are easily swappable. This is a very distinctive-looking timepiece, and a business partner of mine (a guy on network television 5 days a week) owns the men's version, so it must be fashionable. This being a quartz model means it will keep nearly flawless time (better than the aforementioned Rolex--trust me), with battery replacement needed only every few years.
Keep in mind, this is not a petite woman's watch, so may not be ideal for women who prefer a small watch. It IS too small for a man's wrist, and the men's sizing is quite large, so keep that in mind if you are looking for a men's model. However if your wife/girlfriend/whatever likes a larger watch, this is not a bad choice.
My personal bias is to avoid a gold-layered or plated model, since anything other than a watch cut from real gold, will lose that gold look in high wear areas of the watch. I have not put Invicta's "Swiss Gold" durability to the test, so I really can't dispute Invicta's claims of durability, however I would still avoid the gold-plated models.
That said, for the price of a cheap watch, with the Invicta Baby Lupah, or any Invicta, you are getting a REAL watch, you just won't get much in the way exclusivity. For a daily beater, I would say you can't go wrong.
