The Weakest Link in the entire Invicta callection: This is Not a Watch.
on October 13, 2014
This is a very handsome piece of jewelry. It is the prettiest stainless steel wristband for the price. It is perfectly finished. No rough edges. As an introduction to the beauty of Invicta, choose this for $45 and the 1774 glittering gold one for $83 at present writing. The first one I got kept getting stuck.
The watch shop got it de-magnetised. It started moving. It lost time. Like 10 minutes over a day.
I got the battery changed. I should not have wasted the effort, as the watch kept losing time. The watch shop guy said it was not possible for the battery to be loose in the compartment. It was probably Swiss mechanism, although not marked Swiss. The shape of the mechanism was typically Swiss configuration, not Japanese.
How can an Invicta screw up with timing, the very reason for buying a watch. So I put aside all the expensive Bolts, sub-aquas, and if I kept going, I would be bragging. I wore it at work, and it kept time so long as it was on my wrist. OK, my Invicta collection should be safe. Then the sucker started losing time when left alone on the table. For a guy who invested in hundreds of Invictas, this was certainly demoralising, even if the watch was on the "cheap end".
I bought another. When it arrived it had already lost two minutes - assuming that as with the rest of Invictas, they are factory set.
Well, since it is only $45, and it does look like a Tag, I will get a couple more. If it cannot tell time, I will have to ask Amazon to discontinue the sale of this watch. A watch like this makes me wonder if any of my other Invictas will lose time.
And one more thing. Forget about the Invicta warranty. It is practically useless. If any of your Invictas spoil, write it off. Invicta makes nice watches, but they cannot provide service for nuts.
