    Xeric, this was a watch I bought on crowd funding. It is interesting and fun twist on reading the time.

    I also picked this one up the other day it's an older [2007] reserve model-- 45mm, Swiss made automatic COSC certified chronometer. According to my timegraph it's only picked up 9/10ths of a second in 31 hours.

    I know that Invicta has a certain stigma attached to their name, but I really like the look of their dive watches and some of their [mainly older] higher dollar models really are high quality pieces...Although I would never pay full price for one, nor would I buy one of their newer models.

    If you want serious bang for your buck check out Parnis. A lot of their designs are well done homages but they’re quality pieces.

    Actually, I was thinking of picking up one of their Submariner homages with the Swiss ETA movement.

    You won’t be disappointed. If you’re looking to go a notch higher at some point I recommend zeppelin. Classic design and very reliable.

    Indeed, I see they have some Sellita, ETA, and Valjoux offerings. I am not into Japanese automatics which they seem to have an abundance of.

    Maybe I should take a break from the watch buying. The Invicta's weren't the cheap models and I have 2 Oris watches on the way.

    Just chalk this up as one of my buying sprees.

    I found watches are a lot like RAD... haha.

    Oris is a nice pausing point. Great watches.

    Thanks. I am not a fan of the brushed center links, so I think that I will put a high polish on the bracelet and just re-brush the outer links.

    I like that Ball it's pretty sharp...Enjoy!

    This thread.....insanely addictive. Read start to finish. Sparked an old interest....browsed for way too long....and this shows up.
