Quite a few on offer at the moment, Low-High here

Another cheapie is this one (think it's been mentioned on HUKD already) £56.89 + £4.10 Delivery
39521690-sj6yn.jpgI'd avoid this monstrosity

These Pro Divers (Automatic) sometimes hit the £50 mark, example here, so worth waiting if you don't want one right now.

Invicta get a lot of hate, but i do think there aren't many brands with so many off the wall designs, which you've got to give some credit for. Especially for the price.

For me Invicta would need to do 4 things for me to consider buying one of their watches.

1. Stop being a Rolex homage/lookalike/wannabe brand.
2. Produce something other than Rolex lookalikes and garish mall watches aimed at the budget US watch market.
3. Remove all the hideous over branding from the watch case, dial and that second hand counterbalance. (If a feature is not in a publicity shot, there’s a reason and the Rolex suing is IMHO not believable).

4. Produce a watch that was both of quality manufacture and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Is that too much to ask of a budget watch brand tailored to the needs of rednecks?

Great first Post! Picked up the rose gold after looking into them on YouTube, seems they are a stand out piece for the brand. Even impress watchmakers.

I am not sure what bona fide watchmakers would see in an Invicta watch that would Impress them?

That has to be the poorest most bias watch review I have ever watched. 90% of the review of the watch related to showing and working on the Seiko movement and showing the dial?

How can any reviewer do a review of a watch and fail to show any detail of the case or lugs? In fact how can he show nothing in relation to the case back, the bracelet, the clasp, end links, lug fit, lume, Etc. He totally avoids this and somehow manages to review an Invicta without showing or mentioning the engraving in huge letters of the name on the case side? He does mention VFM which we all know about and a bit on Bezel aluminium print being a bit fuzzy but OK, the movement rotor being dayglo yellow and cheap looking but it was all pretty much focused on the movement and presentation, how nice and shiny the watch was and how nice the box was.

Then as we approached the end at 23:10 minutes he actually said, “The watch looks great, It looks EXACTLY like a Rolex Submariner, one of the most if not the most iconic watches in the galaxy” . He actually says that, “EXACTLY like a Rolex Submariner”.

He then goes on to say The watch is gold plated?? and that “A gold watch tends to be an evening watch but the Submariner is One of the most versatile watches you can buy”. He seemed to think he was reviewing a Rolex Submariner not an Invicta lookalike ProMaste. If I did not know better I would assume he was an Invicta salesman and I was watching a paid for infomercial.

Then in his final round up, having relied massively on the Seiko movement to get the build quality score up (which he then rounded up) and so apparently desperate to give a glowing report, even basic math failed him as he not only rounded up again but rounded up and then some.

Sorry, but that was truly farcical.

What self respecting watch reviewer uses Build Quality, Looks and VFM as the three judging criteria then rolls the three together, divided by three, rounds up and adds on a bit more to get an Overall Score?

I think the bias here lies with you buddy. No offense.

Everything I have stated is fact based on the watching the review that you linked to and appear to have placed so much faith in. If you believe quoting the source that you provided somehow shows bias, then fine.

Point to note that in your reviewers published list of recommended sub $100 watches, there are four different watches listed. Three of the watches are Invicta watches. Looks like he too is a fan.

It may come as no surprise therefore that in your Reviewer video titled “The Best Mens Watch - How To Buy The Right One On Any Budget”, guess which watch he picks as the go to choice for the impoverished (his words not mine)?? A watch he calls the “Submariner”. In fact, he repeatedly refers to a submariner as a design and all of the below as submariners..

I don't place lots of "faith" in the review, in fact, I don't have an Invicta watch for many of the reasons you've stated, however, the man is apparently a watchmaker, and you can't disagree with the fact that for the price, the movement and quality you get is good.

Personal opinion on style and the fact that it takes inspiration from the submariner is irrelevant.

Again, stop acting as though I watch this guy, I literally only know of this one video I happened to stumble on a few months back, in fact, I've seen plenty of people vouch for the movement and quality for the price. Also, can you really expect much attention to detail with casing, bracelet, bezel etc when most of the money and value of the watch is probably going towards the movement?

And anyway, as a watch fan yourself, you have to agree that it's got a solid, well made movement from a respectable watchmaking company, you're getting a Seiko movement and you can rely on that for the score, because that's the integral part of a watch.

I think you just have an inherent bias against Invicta anyway from what I can tell, not that I care, I just find it odd.

I'd much rather spend the extra and go for a Seiko, Orient, Casio etc etc, but I don't see how I could deny the value this presents to the average buyer or watch lover, and I don't know how you could either.

First and foremost, I agree that the watch represents VFM and that is well documented.

Regards the style a relevance of the Submariner references, the review in question constantly and repeatedly makes reference to the watch being a “submariner”, hence I mention it. That said I agree and it detracts hugely from what an honest review is intended to achieve.

Regardless of price, in a 26 minute review I would expect a watch to be reviewed in its entirety, not simply the caliber within.

Bias by its very nature is unfair prejudice. I have been clear on what I do not like about Invicta watches, points you appear to agree with, which is not what a bias opinion is.

Regards movements, in the watchmakers latest Invicta review he highlights and demonstrates the watch has a Citizen (Miyota) movement and notes that he is unsure if the watch is £75 or £120. He still then goes on to givie a glowing VFM review and states the watch has a Seiko movement. Doh!

Anyway as hah has not provided any tangible feedback, I appreciate yours and agree 100% that the likes of an Orient (owned by Seiko) is a far better buy.
