Like the watch due to the fact it has nice big Arabic numbers. I have half a dozen Invictas so I guess I'm a fan. Black case is sweet and the crown on the left means no more digging into my left wrist! Most of my other Invictas don't have a second hand that runs without pushing a chrono button. This one ticks off the seconds around the face like a regular watch - retro & cool. I would have preferred a white face with the black case, but that option is not available - but then you have to deal with white hands against a white face, and probably black numerals that would be hard to illuminate. I would have liked to seen orange tipped hands as well. (or some contrasting color scheme)

Don't know why they covered a nice leather band with cloth material that make the band look like a child's watch. Someone called it "technofiber".
The crown does not screw down as other diver watches. This worries me so I won't be swimming or showering with it. Maybe some new technology?


Easy to read face
Black case and black buckle
Water resistance
Large size
Good looking - gets compliments
Chronograph functions
Crown and pushers on the left
EZ set date
Good luminosity on the dial and hands
Paid less than one Benjamin when it was on sale with no tax or shipping


Cloth on top of real leather?
Date window is too tiny for this big of a watch face - could use a magnify window
Crown is NOT screw down, so I won't be diving with this
Try to find a replacement leather strap with a black buckle!

I love Invicta watches and to be able to purchase them for around $100 is a great deal! They are of excellent quality and I will explain why.
I purchased them a few months back and I absolutely love them and wear them to death. It can be worn up or down depending on your outfit and I gets compliments from everyone.
I was worried that the large face would make it seem too flashy and obnoxious but the sleek elegant and intricate designs of the watch allowed for them to be worn casually and classily(Not a word).

ALSO, this is PERFECT for left-handed people such as myself. It is great to finally have one for the team! +1 bonus points

Body: (4****/5*****)

The face is large and brilliant and so well detailed that it is quite captivating and looks very sophisticated regardless of the colorway you choose. The quartz body is tough and can take quite a beating (I'm pretty rough with it during work and it is scratchless). As mentioned earlier, the watch is also meant for left handers - Excellent! It is great for wearing out casually or by dressing it up. Whatever you decide, it will work excellently! There are a variety of colorways and styles available by Invicta, all for the same price of $99

Band: (2**/5*****)

This is the only true issue with this watch. The band is a weird mix between leather and cloth and it is very prone to damage. I've had this watch for a 6 months now and the band has started to deteriorate from wear and tear coupled with water touching the band a few times. It has started to shave off and has become quite unsightly. I swapped out the band for a classic leather set and I am very happy. I was a little upset that the original band didn't fair that well but the watch is for a bargain and I don't think the makers were expecting day-to-day wear as I have subjected it to.

Price: (4****/5*****)

$99 is an excellent value for this watch but I highly doubt that the watch is and was worth $695+ some time ago. Clever marketing from Amazon and Invicta.
Still I believe for $99 you are getting a very stylish watch. You can find plenty of watches for UNDER this price but I don't think you will be able to match the level of detail and quality. In terms of overall practicality, this watch doesn't really meet that criteria as the chronograph and other features are primarily there as a simple perk. Still, if you need a simple timer, timeteller, and calender all in a stylish package - this is the watch for you! There is also a provided warranty for a year!

Summary -


+ Price
+ Left-handed
+ Large face
+ Quality construction in that price range
+ Very affordable


- Not many special features, but is mainly for style and quality
- Band is fragile, Suggest swapping out or wearing more carefully.

I'm not a watch aficionado, but this is the nicest watch I have ever had. I like the slightly over-sized design of the watch as well as the design of the watch face. The only slight negative I have is with the watch band. Perhaps it is because I have not worn a watch for several years, and just need time to adjust to the feel or the band needs time to break-in, but the band is a bit uncomfortable. It has gotten more comfortable after wearing it for two weeks, so maybe that is the case.

On a separate note, my experience with Amazon, not the watch, was rather peculiar based on my long history of shopping on Amazon. I have had a great experience with Amazon except for when it came to ordering this watch. My overall product score is not influenced at all by what follows. I'm rating the product not packing quality which has it's own review section.

I had to place two orders for this watch. On the first order, I purchased this watch in NEW condition, but the watch that I received was in obvious USED condition. There was no protective film on the glass of the watch, there was no tag on the watch, there was lint in the crevasses of the watch, and the pins that connect the band to the watch itself, made this weird clicking sound anytime pressure was applied that made it seem as if it was slightly damaged. I was also a bit annoyed when I called Amazon customer support, that I would have to return this order and place a brand new order for it, rather than just doing an exchange.

On the second order, the watch was in NEW condition, but it was by far the poorest packing quality for any item I have ever received directly from Amazon. The box was roughly 2.5 times too big for the watch box and there was absolutely no packing material/protection in the shipping box. The watch box was just loosely floating around in the shipping box. Fortunately, the watch was undamaged. F- for packing quality. Absolutely no care was taken by who ever packed this.

This was an extremely atypical experience.

I've had this for 2 years now and it has put up with a beating.

I have small wrists and the watch looks good and fits great. There is plenty of room for large wrists as well and it fits my larger framed friends just as well.

The watch band is awesome. The leather inside with canvas out looks great and is super comfortable. It did start to show wear after about a year and I had to replace it after a year and a half but now it's customized and even cooler.

Chrono and date still work flawlessly.

The watch was what I expected but the only real problem Iam having with Invicta is registering my new watch for warrranty protection...the site continues to reject my legitimate invicta membership registeaction and sends me a useless activation mail to my gmail a/c...I called and they were less than helpful as their sales staff couldn't do it over the phone apparently...and so I tried three time ..refilling all the relevant information...:((.....Denis
Addendum: Well I resolved the issue...on checking my spam mail...I found an activation link to the Invicta site and then..I found the warranty number on the outside of the plain white box that contained the lavish gift box for the watch..where the manual had four pages of warranty info but no number..happy I didnt throw out the just had a sticker with a band mscan code and the letters and numerals below it...not even idicating that it was the warranty number for my it evenyually went smoothly and I am now registered...whew...!!...Invicta put the warranty number inside the gift box please..!!

Watch turned out to look as good in person as in pictures. Was worried about the band, but actually looks and feels really good. Very happy with my purchase!

I thought the offer was not real. When I finally received the product it was much beyond my expectation. The product arrived in good time.
