This Invicta II black carbon fiber dial men’s watch is a big, fashionable timepiece that is ideal if you like big watches that are comfortable and not cumbersome on your wrist at an affordable price.

This watch is stylish, high quality, and most importantly affordable. While the list price is $495, you can find this watch online for as low as $70. Whether you are at a business meeting or a casual gathering with your friends, this watch will complement your attire without being excessively tacky and ostentatious. Trying to find a watch that matches and complements your outfit is one less thing you have to worry about with this timepiece. The watch case has a diameter of 48mm and a thickness of 13mm, which allows for oversized design and face detail. The hour and minute hands are luminous with yellow gold tone, while the digits are easily discernible in luminous, white Arabic numerals. The display of the digits and hands, easily visible on black carbon fiber dial, is something you will enjoy, especially at night time as they glow in the dark. There is a curved date window that stretches from the five o’clock hour to the nine o’clock hour. This watch has an 18k gold plated stainless steel case that is resistant to tarnishes and scratches. The gold plating gives this timepiece a luxurious look for fraction of the price you would pay for solid gold. It has a wrist strap that is made of high quality leather on the inside and black cloth on the outside. The strap is 9.75 inches long with a buckle clasp that is easily adjustable for perfect fit and comfort. The leather strap keeps the watch from being bulky and too heavy, which would have been the case with a metal band. The gold and black colors of this timepiece complement each other well to give it a nice, classic look. Another useful feature about this watch is that even though it is not designed for divers, it is water resistant to a depth of 330 feet. You now can slip in for a quick swim without worrying about getting your watch wet and damaging it.

Pros
• Swiss quartz movement – cheaper and more accurate than mechanical watch
• Affordable
• Casual and classic look
• High water resistance
• Luminous digits and minute and hour hands
• Leather wrist strap

Cons
• Big watch – for a person with small wrists or who likes small watches, this might be too big

Bottom line: This collection of Invicta II quartz watch for men is a classic timepiece that you will enjoy if you like big watches with reasonable price and comfortable fit.
