Classic elegance in a gold and silver palette: meet the Invicta Women’s Angel White Mother of Pearl Dial Two-Tone Watch 544. Featuring a two-toned chain bracelet, 18 karat gold accents, and a mother of pearl dial, this stylish watch is perfect for the workplace or everyday wear and exudes power, functionality, and sophistication.

The Invicta 544’s stylish details are just right: not overly ostentatious, but not minimalist either. The 18 karat gold-plated twelve-pointed bezel lends an aura of geometric regularity and classical balance. Luminous gold-toned Roman numerals adorn the shimmering white mother-of-pearl dial, while a white ring outside the dial and inside the bezel shows dark gray minute indices with boxes at the hour mark, providing both easy-reading functionality and decoration. To finish off the look, both the crown and the second hand are gold-toned, and the hour and minute hands are luminous and gold-rimmed as well. A flame-fusion crystal covers the dial, and an easy-to-use jewelry clasp is used to fasten the 18-karat gold-plate accented stainless steel bracelet.

Pros:

  • Simple, geometric elegance
  • Easy reability
  • Roman numerals add to classical look
  • Swiss quartz movement
  • Water resistant up to 99 feet/30 meters/3 ATM of water resistance, meaning it can withstand rain, splashes of water, and short recreational swimming

Cons:

  • The 12-pointed bezel can come off as a bit blocky, and the Roman numerals as a bit stodgy. Thus, the watch is not particularly feminine in its appearance and feel.
  • Some people may prefer Arabic numerals, or want something fancier or more feminine, perhaps a timepiece that is more rounded and less angular, or has crystals or diamonds.

Hearts and Diamonds: the beautiful Invicta Women's 'Wildflower' Two-tone White Diamond and Crystal Watch

If you are looking for an alternative two-tone Invicta watch, something a little fancier and more feminine, check out the Women’s ‘Wildflower’ Two-tone White Diamond and Crystal Watch 0694 ($225). This lovely time piece, like the Angel 544, has a white mother of pearl dial, but its bezel is rose gold-plated with 16 white diamonds, and the dial has a date display, luminous rose gold-toned hands, markers, and an Arabic numeral at 12 o’clock, and a white crystal heart on the dial. The crown also has a blue cabochon (polished gem), adding a nice colorful flair.

Another Invicta two-tone watch with a less girly but more modern look, is the I by Invicta Women’s Light Gold Dial Two-tone Watch 89051-004 ($350). Unlike the Invicta 544, it has a gold flower-petal shape rimmed black bezel with the 60, 15, 30, and 45 minute Arabic numeral markers and gold indices, a light gold dial with luminous gold indices for each hour and Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock only, and a gold crown. This has a much more sleek, modern look compared to the 544’s Roman numeral and 12-pointed bezel, but is just as striking with its two-toned design.

The Final Word:

This watch may not be for everyone, as there are sleeker, more feminine, and more modern designs by Invicta, but if you’re looking for a slightly old-fashioned yet modern watch with Roman numerals, a sturdy, geometric feel and two-toned design, this watch is not a bad catch. The $495 retail price may be much, since the alternative models are much cheaper as just as nice, if not nicer. But, if you can find this watch for under $60 online, which is possible (try overstock.com), it may be the timepiece for you.
