Great Build Quality, Beautiful Color!
on December 31, 2015
This watch is absolutely gorgeous. Please take the time to look at the pictures I have posted here, hopefully they can give you a better visual than the stock photo you see above.
Here are a few points of emphasis worth pointing out.
Just like you will read in all of these reviews, this watch is MASSIVE. The word "oversized" in the title is absolutely correct in this scenario. I personally love big watches, even at the risk of looking like I have a major case of "Little Man Syndrome." You can see in the pictures that it takes up my entire wrist. It is also pictured next to a standard pencil, to give you an idea of how thick the actual watch is.
DURABILITY: Always important to me in watches. -- At such a big size, you get unbelievable build quality. I am yet to subject this watch to much trauma, but I can assure you this thing is as sturdy as they come.
The blue color in the stock photo is far brighter and more intense than the color you will see in the actual picture. The blue is much more of a deep and subtle color, and it is very classy looking. This is the best feature of the watch, no question.
The leather band in this is listed as a "Genuine Calf Leather." It is really high quality, and I'm sure it will last a long time. However, it is very thick, and very stiff when you first get it. I have had a little bit of a hard time getting the thick band to even go into the straps, and it can be moderately uncomfortable while you're breaking it in. Just as is the case with almost any leather band you are going to buy. This band just happens to be heavier and thicker than most, so it could take a while to break in.
If you like big watches, you need this to add to your collection. It is shockingly lightweight, and once you get past the initial stiffness of the band, it is very comfortable to wear. This is the fourth Invicta watch that I have purchased. At this price point, this is a fantastic watch. I don't personally think of this as a daily driver, I have a couple of Pro Diver models that I wear more often, but this has a little bit of a different style, and I love having it to wear occasionally.
