Thank you! 🙏🏻💜

Most Invicta’s are bad watches, yes. But there’s a few gems. The automatic 40mm pro divers are great value sub homages. I also have a nice quartz Datejust 36mm homage from Invicta. It’s a shame, because Invicta had great designs before the company was resurrected by Eyal Lalo in the 90s.

Invicta’s warranties are a joke. It would be a waste of time to extend the warranty. Tons of online complaints about their warranty service

The dial’s texture and color combined with the applied three-dimensional (3D) markers puts me in a trance. Lovely frontal view. The pop of red on the seconds hand is a nice touch, too.

Invicta does in fact get a lot of hate. But the company has its use. It’s the company that got me into watches, so I’ll always appreciate Invicta for that.
