I gave it 3 stars because it's a HUUUUGE watch and I get tons of compliments on it.
The Bad: Well, I had a lot of good things to say about the way the watch looks. Very few complaints there. But there are some technical issues worthy of mentioning. The pushers don't screw in. Thus, if you bump them, you might accidentally advance the month or your 24 hour time. And it's not hard at all to bump them. They are large/long and it doesn't take a hard push to get them to work. These should have been much smaller or they should have screwed in and required to be unscrewed to be able to push them to advance these features. Also, the fact that they don't screw in makes me wonder if this watch is easily water damaged. They claim it has 200 meter water resistance, which is very respectable, but I worry about those pushers. Next: Advancing the date is accomplished with the screw out crown. You unscrew the crown and pull it out to the #2 position to set the time. Then, you're supposed to push it into the #1 position to set the date. But it's very difficult to catch the #1 position just right. And when you do, you advance the date by one day----and then the crown starts to screw in. So then you have to back it out again, advance another day, and it starts to screw in again. In other words---you have to screw it in and out to advance each day. I don't know if that's by design or if I have a defective one----but being that this is a brand new watch, if it's a defect, it should have been caught by Invicta quality control. If it's by design, it's ridiculous engineering. I managed to get the date set, so I'm living with it. Returning a watch to Invicta for service is apparently a major ordeal, even under warranty, so I'm just accepting it the way it is. That's a shame, because this is certainly less than perfect on a brand new watch that sells in the $200.00 range. I mentioned that the black mother of pearl isn't as dynamic as some people might hope. I actually like it---and again, under the right lighting, it does give that rainbow effect, almost like spilled gasoline---very cool. But if you're expecting some sort of color wheel blast of light, you won't see it here. Still, getting an organic MOP dial is pretty cool. The poly/rubber band is a little thinner than other Invicta bands I own. The bands on my Subaqua Scuba and Venom watches are thicker and appear to be of better quality. Sure, those watches cost more----but $200.00 is not a cheap watch. And truth be told, you can find Subaqua Scubas for just a little bit more than this Jason Taylor Corduba. Some people might like the lighter weight (as a result of the thinner material). But I don't mind a heavy watch and I like the rubber to be thick. One other note: The crown isn't smooth and rounded. It's sharp/edgy by design, which looks nice, but being that the watch is large, that crown can rub against your wrist or the back of your hand depending on how you wear your watch. It can dig in a little!
The Ugly: The band has one nicely styled but stationary loop to hold the excess band down. Problem is, on my wrist (which is maybe 7 1/4" or 7 1/2"), after putting the band through the loop----over an inch of the excess band sticks out----and since it's hard poly rubber, it sticks STRAIGHT out. There needed to be a second (adjustable) loop to hold this down at the end. Is this a deal breaker? No, it's not that awful. But it would have been so easy to get this right. Oh well.
The Verdict: If not for the problems with advancing the date, I would have given this 4 stars. But that detracts from an otherwise winning watch enough to knock it down to 3 stars. This is supposedly a Swiss movement, but I'm assuming it's a lower end movement. The fact that it doesn't effortlessly click between time setting and date setting---is a downer. The fact that the date setting is that finicky---is a double downer. Like I said, I might have just gotten a slight defect here, but that's not acceptable either. My take is that if this watch sold for a little less than a hundred dollars, it would be a solid buy. But at almost $200.00, it's overpriced in my opinion---and perhaps we're paying for the Jason Taylor limited edition aspect of this. I understand that----there's an image and desirability that goes along with the Jason Taylor series and this is one of the lower priced options to get into the JT line. If you can find this watch for around $150.00 or less, I say go ahead and take a chance on it. For $200.00 though, there are better choices, unless you're determined to get a Jason Taylor.
