The Invicta Men’s Invicta II Blue Dial 18k Gold Plated Stainless Steel Chronograph 1205 watch is an excellent blend of classic sophistication and modern style, perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to make any sacrifices when it comes to their next watch purchase.

This timepiece is made using a stainless steel, 18K gold plated bracelet, bezel and case.  The dial is blue with luminous, gold toned hands and markers that really help to tie in the all over gold appearance of the rest of the watch.  This watch has three sub-dials that display the 60 second timer, 30 minute timer and 1 hour timer.  There is also a date display in between the four and five o’clock markers on the watch face.  The Invicta Men’s Invicta II Blue Dial 18k Gold Plated Stainless Steel Chronograph 1205 watch is water resistant up to 100 meters, which makes it suitable for wear when you’re washing your hands, in the rain, or even swimming.  The water resistance transforms this watch from something you would only want to wear on special occasions to a timepiece that you could wear every day, without worrying about what may happen to it.

Pros

  • 18K Gold Plating
  • Stainless Steel
  • Luminous Hands and Markers
  • Flame-fusion Crystal
  • Water Resistant up to 100 meters
  • Calendar
  • 60 Second, 30 Minute, 1 Hour Sub-dial Displays
  • Tachymeter Scale on Inner Bezel
  • Affordable

This watch has many extra features that make it a great choice for daily wear.  The calendar, 3 sub-dial displays and tachymeter give this timepiece and intricate, interesting look and the blue dial adds an additional pop of style and modernity.  Perhaps the biggest pro to this watch is the price.  It retails for only $595, but there are often online deals and discounts that lower the price significantly, making this watch even more affordable.

Cons

  • Busy Design
  • Not Solid 18K Gold

All of the extra features that this watch has could be seen as a distraction for some people, since the additional information is displayed on the watch face, and makes it harder to read what time it is.  Also the Invicta Men’s Invicta II Blue Dial 18k Gold Plated Stainless Steel Chronograph 1205 watch is gold plated, meaning that it isn’t solid 18K gold, a factor that may deter some customers, though does help to keep the overall price low.

I would absolutely recommend the Invicta Men’s Invicta II Blue Dial 18k Gold Plated Stainless Steel Chronograph 1205 watch to any friend of mine.  The gold-plating keeps the price low and the blue dial keeps the style high, a perfect blend for an every day watch.
