If you want a chic, distinctive, affordable watch, the Invicta Women’s Angel White Dial Orange Silicon Quartz 696 is for you. This fashionable timepiece has many poplar features that make it stylish, yet practical. Great for casual wear, the cool catchy orange on the silicon strap and plastic bezel add an impressive flair to your collection of accessories.

In addition to its fashion, large gunmetal Arabic numerals for every hour on the dial and black fifteen-minute intervals inscribed on the bezel make it extremely easy to read the time. Its black luminous hands contrast with the white dial, which also make it easy on the eye to view the precise Japanese-quartz movement. Neat features of the Invicta Angel include three sub-dials that indicate the day of the week, date as a numeral, and sixty second hand. Water resistant to ninety-nine feet, you will not have to worry about getting this watch wet. The bright orange silicon strap is comfortable and the buckle clasp is easy to fasten.

Key Features:

  • Orange silicon strap with stainless steel case
  • Sub-dials include day of the week, date, and 60 seconds
  • Water resistant up to 99 feet
  • Japanese quartz movement
  • Gunmetal Arabic numerals
  • Flame-Fusion crystal

Other Versions:

If you are not a fan of the vibrant orange color, Invicta also makes this same model in pink, light-green, brown, yellow-green, or lime green color. Check out these versions:

  • Women’s Angel White Dial Light Green Silicon Quartz, 697
  • Women’s Angel White Dial Brown Silicon Quartz, 699
  • Women’s Angel White Dial Yellow Green Silicon Quartz, 700
  • Women’s Angel White Dial Lime Green Silicon Quartz, 713

One downside of the Angel is that it is tough to set the month and date dials. The flame fusion crystal construction may be a bit delicate, but the stainless steel case adds to its durability. The Angel model is no longer available from Invicta. Despite these drawbacks, this unique timepiece is available online and is reasonably priced. Similar in style to the high-end Michele brand’s Tahitian Large Jelly Bean Chronograph, Orange, Invicta’s Angel White Dial Orange with Silicon Quartz model is currently much less expensive. Originally $395, the Angel with Silicon Quartz is selling for as low as $43.57 on overstock.com. It’s a great price for a quality watch with pizazz from a reputable brand.

Pros:

  • Easy to read the time
  • Beautiful orange color
  • Unique
  • Comfortable
  • Sub-dials
  • Water resistant
  • Inexpensive

Cons:

  • Difficult to set month and date dials
  • Delicate flame fusion crystal
