I love a good watch and I have a fair-sized collection of them, however, mine are all mechanical watches, the kind that need to be wound. This watch appealed to me for a few reasons:
* It's BIG - Large watches are all the rage now and I didn't have any that were near this size. * It looks sporty - The watches in my collection are all dress watches and this one is more for the sportsman. * It's complicated - The features on a watch such as the day, date, moon phases, etc. are referred to as "complications." They are usually expensive when offered on a mechanical watch but are common and affordable on quartz models such as this one. * It's accurate - Although I love the aesthetics of a mechanical watch the truth is that quartz watches are usually much more accurate.
The Invicta 1513 I Force did not disappoint. The face is a brilliant, almost iridescent blue. The large buttons make it easy to control the stop-watch features. I like having date feature instead of the day (I have always thought that if you don't know what day it is you don't really need a watch.)
Speaking of the stop watch features; this watch has separate dials for tenths of a second, seconds, and minutes. This would really come in handy if someone was a track coach or an auto racer. All in all a nice, practical watch at a very affordable price.
