Thank you. Me neither. I understand that it was a Japan only release and my brother had it shipped from Japan to me.

I guess they realize there is a market for these types of watches too. It takes some time but if you browse their shop, gems like this one do pop up once in a while. This is one of two vintage inspired watches I own from them. The other has a VK quartz that ticks 4 times per second.

I've never seen this model. Is it an older model or more recent?

They do have quite a few variations but I think all of them (well at least the ones I have seen) have a matching dial and arabics. I think one version has Roman numerals but again, they match the dial color.

I have not had any spring bar failures but I try not to crank down on the strap. It feels uncomfortable and restricting. I have considered buying beefier spring bars just in case but have not done so yet.

I knew the design was not original but I did not know where Invicta was getting their inspiration.

The votes are in Roman vs Arabic Vs. Indeces

It looks like Arabics take the win over Roman numerals by a long shot and indices came in 2nd. (my poll is here: https://www.watchcrunch.com/IvanRomer...

Arabics vs. Roman numerals

I am not a roman numeral guy. I grew up with clocks in our house with roman numerals. I am not sure if getting my first LCD watch just made me prefer Arabics but that is my preference. I'll take indic...

Timex Standard Sub-Second 40mm

I like the look of this one a lot but it looks like they cut too many corners for me to want to buy it. Mineral crystal, non-leather strap, quartz, an...
