If you’re looking for a classic-looking watch on the budget, you can’t go wrong with Invicta’s Men’s Vintage Blue dial watch. It’s simple, yet timeless design makes for a snappy looking watch that goes great with some formal attire.

Here are some of the watch’s main features:

  • Swiss Quartz Movement
  • Solid steel case
  • Black leather band
  • Flame fusion crystal
  • Water Resistant up to 50 meters

The first striking thing about this watch is it’s deep blue color and it’s bold white Arabic numerals. The overall design of the case and the face, from the ridged bezel around the case to the winged Invicta symbol on the face, has a nice vintage aesthetic. This simple design works for any sort of occasion. It is great for every day use, and handsome enough to wear on more formal affairs.

The 50 meter water resistance insures that this watch can survive a dip in the pool, but it is not meant for anything too vigorous. If you want something that can survive a deep sea dive, you may want to shop for a sports watch instead. However, most people aren’t going to go diving into the ocean on a daily basis, but it’s good to know that your watch will survive the drink.

A drawback on this watch is that the face’s color is not consistent in the light. It’s color ranges from deep blue to almost purple, depending on the light and what angle it is seen in. If you want a consistent color for your watch, you may want to look elsewhere.

The Invicta 1459 features a leather band, further adding to it’s vintage style.

One of the great things about Invicta watches is that they are covered by a warranty, which will cover damages to your watch for one year. You also can pay $25.00 more to get a platinum warranty for you watch, which will cover your watch for 5 years. While you may never need to use the warranty, considering the price tag on this watch, it may not hurt to invest a little bit of money in keeping it in good condition.

This watch is relatively cheap, one of the cheapest prices you can get this vintage watch is about $43.00 on Amazon. Overall, this watch is a good looking watch at a great price. If you’re looking for a watch that has a nice vintage style to it, Invicta’s 1459 model is one of your best bets.

Pros:

  • Great vintage look
  • Nice look for all occasions
  • Warranty covers the watch for one year

Cons:

  • Inconsistent face color
  • Not many features beyond the date
  • Not meant for all conditions (Diving, etc.)
