For those looking to enter the world of  luxury watches, but are apprehensive about wading through all the watches currently on the market to find the right combination of style and functionality, there is hope! Adhering to their philosophy of creating luxury watches that stand out for their style and versatility, Invicta introduces the Men’s Invicta II Chronograph Silver Tone and 18k Gold Plated Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch 0080.

The watch is equipped with precise Japanese-quartz movement. In addition, the durable flame-fusion crystal gives the watch that heavy, expensive feeling. The brushed and polished stainless steel case and bracelet, with its18k gold-plated center links, push this watch to the front end of fashion without overdoing it the way so many other watches are prone to do.. Even though there are numerous things to look at when admiring this piece, the watch ends up with a slightly subdued look. It is flashy, but not obnoxiously so, making it the perfect choice for those who don’t want to draw too much attention to themselves. The black dial with the gold toned lettering really makes the numbers on the watch stand out. The large letters make it easier to tell time with only a quick glance.  The watch is also equipped with Trinite luminous hands, once again adding to its visibility. The gold-tone hands and hour markers complete the look of the watch making it a great accessory to add to any outfit.  It also has an 18k gold-plated and black stainless steel unidirectional bezel, as well as 18k gold-plated stainless steel crown and pushers. In addition to its style, the watch is equipped with multiple practical features making it not only a good looking watch, but an extremely versatile one as well. The Chronograph functions with 60 second, 60 minute and 12 hour sub dials. The watch also displays the date in a little box on the face. The date is a little small and can be a little more difficult to see than the rest of the numbers on the watch.  For those worried about durability, the watch is not shock absorbent, but it is water-resistant up until roughly 330 feet (100 Meters).

 

Pros:

  • Expensive Look and Feel,
  • Luminous, Water Resistant,
  • Easy to Read,
  • Multiple Settings

Cons:

  • Date Function Too Small,
  • Not Shock Absorbent

 

At only around $495.00 depending on the vendor, the lack of shock absorption is a little alarming, but for those not worried about dropping their watches, the functionality of the watch makes it a versatile and stylish accessory.
