I was very happy with this watch when I purchased it
on November 26, 2016
I was very happy with this watch when I purchased it. I do enjoy the simple face and overall design of this watch. It also has a good weight. I have no complains in this area. It was an excellent watch for about three months. However as time has gone on I've noticed some problems. I purchased the watch in May and now at the beginning of November the issues have started to really bother me. I've had this watch roughly six months now. I've never owned and Invicta watch before and I have to say sadly this will be the last time I purchase an Invicta watch.
This watch tends to run a bit fast, It would gain about eleven seconds every twenty-four hours. I'm a time-freak, it is an OCD of mine. I don't like it when watches or clocks are wrong even to the second. I even set the clocks in homes that are not mine, if I can get away with it and not get caught. :) This is minor and it is possible to pop open the case and adjust the mechanics to slow it down a bit. I did not do this. This is a minor issue and I can live with it.
The issue I'm running into now is the auto winding feature. It does work, however it's gotten to the point that when I take this watch off to sleep. (It's my daily driver) It's wrong in the morning when I put it on. The self wind is now not holding the time for less then eight to nine hours when I sleep. Since this means that I have to set the watch daily I find it frustrating and tedious. Especially since my particular personality requires then each time I set it, it be correct as close to the second as possible.
I bought this watch for $370.00. For that price I did not expect to get a watch I have to set daily. Overall I'm unhappy with this purchase but I cannot return it as I have just now started to notice the self winding issue. As is now I would not recommend purchasing this watch, especially at this price point. They have $50.00 - $80.00 offerings in a very similar style. If you like the look of this watch I recommend you purchase one of those models. When someone purchased a watch for almost four hundred dollars they expect to get more then just a few months of life out of it. I feel a bit frustrated with this purchase.
