Questionable quality with this model...
on September 14, 2013
Unfortunately, there's a reason Invicta has a somewhat dubious reputation within the watch community. Their watches look great but regarding quality, its hit and miss with certain models. To make matters worse, their customer service is very poor. This model epitomizes those sentiments exactly. It's a fantastic looking watch, but it developed issues which made adjusting the time/date and tightening the crown very difficult. In less than 5 months of very light use, it needed to be repaired. Customer service was another problem all together. They never sent me any confirmation that they received the watch or any information regarding the repair whatsoever. When I questioned them as to why it was taking so long, they were extremely vague about when I could expect to get it back.
After nearly 5 months I finally got the watch back and its working fine. They repaired something internally, so that there are now clearly identifiable "clicks" for the time and date positions when setting. I just hope that I don't have to send it back again in another six months. I initially gave this watch five stars when I first purchased it, because it was beautiful and seemed to work well, but things changed fast. Considering the length of the repair and the issues with customer service, I'll give it 3 stars now. If you purchase this watch, good luck. Hopefully you'll get one that worked better than mine.
