0 Comment

The Invicta Angel (1618) has an eye catching, cheerful style as well as a durable and comfortable design. This a highly wearable watch suited especially to warm-weather casual outfits and women looking for just a stylish accessory in an otherwise simple watch.

The Invicta Angel (1618) is a casual women’s watch with a bright and eye catching color scheme. Its stainless steel case measures 30mm in diameter and 10mm thick. The Angle has a snap-down case back and push/pull crown which help secure it against water. It is water-resistant down to 30 meters (99 feet). Invicta’s signature flame-fusion crystal makes the watch more impact resistant than most, while Japanese quartz movement keep it tracking time precisely.

Its light purple, rubber strap measures approximately 8 inches long and 15mm wide. Also in light purple, a unidirectional, plastic bezel frames and protects the Angel’s dial. The case is plated in 18k gold as is the stainless steel buckle clasp. The luminous hands are in a matching gold tone as are the Arabic numerals. White Arabic numerals and markers contrast nicely on the light purple bezel. The numerals distinguishing the quarter hours while white orbs mark the cross quarters between them.

The Invicta Angel is listed at $495.00 for normal retail, but can be found online for under $100.00. I recommend checking sites such as SmartBargins.com, WatchesOnNet.com, SharkStores.com, eWatches.com, or WorldofWatches.com for deals.Back view of the Invicta Women's Angel (1618)

The Invicta Angel doesn’t have a lot of features, but if you’re looking for more you’ll also be looking at a pretty significant price increase. For this price, the Angel is a very good buy. This quality, casual-wear watch fits comfortably and stands up well to daily weather and wear.

The light and bright color scheme makes this watch a cheerful and eye catching piece. Though it isn’t sophisticated enough for evening wear, this watch is certainly stylish for casual wear. Its bright colors are especially appropriate for warm weather outfits. This combined with its water-resistance and durability make it an excellent beach going watch. It’s such an easy match to most outfits, that you may find yourself wearing it almost exclusively.

The size and bright color scheme of the face make it fairly easy to read, though the gold-tone hands and numerals do not contrast significantly with the white dial. Only the hands are luminous. This helps visibility in low-light conditions, but other watches also have luminous numerals or dials. Its rubber strap makes the watch fit comfortably. Unlike metal, the rubber flexes with you as you move, and will stand-up to various weather conditions better than leather.
