Looking for a reliable designer timepiece that oozes class and modernity without the hefty price tag? Then the Invicta Women’s Ceramic Black Dial Silver Tone Bezel Brown Ceramic Quartz #1160 is just the watch for you.

The Invicta Women’s Ceramic Black Dial Silver Tone Bezel Brown Ceramic Quartz #1160 watch is a rich brown shade, with a black dial and matte silver hands.  The bezel (the grooved ring that holds the cover of the watch face in place) is made from stainless steel with a brown ceramic top ring.  The ceramic bracelet is 8 inches long and 16 millimeters wide, with a hidden push-button clasp.  This watch is water resistant up to 50 meters, so it can withstand rain and swimming.  This timepiece is perfect as an every day, casual watch that still evokes the class, sophistication and modernity that the Invicta brand is known for.

The Invicta Women’s Ceramic Black Dial Silver Tone Bezel Brown Ceramic Quartz watch is great if you want a watch that you can wear each day, without needing to worry about what you’re going to be doing.  It’s a relatively inexpensive designer timepiece, retailing for $995.00, though you can usually find great deals online and get it at a highly reduced price, which is a valuable perk for many consumers, including myself.

I love the way this watch looks, it has a classic shape and style, with a unique and trendy color scheme.  While it used to be frowned upon to mix neutral shades (i.e. a person wearing a black belt with brown shoes), this fashion choice is increasing in popularity. The watch blends black and brown seamlessly, allowing it’s wearer to be on trend without loosing the classic, refined look of a simple, well made timepiece.  If the brown/black combination isn’t really your style, Invicta also offers the Invicta Women’s 1185 Ceramic Black Dial Black Ceramic watch, which has all the same features and style as the Invicta Women’s Ceramic Black Dial Silver Tone Bezel Brown Ceramic Quartz #1160 watch, but with a uniform black instead of the deep brown.

Pros

  • Casual, every day wear
  • Trendy color scheme
  • Water resistant

This watch has every basic thing you could want, without much extra fuss and clutter. It’s simple design is nicely offset by the hip blending of classic neutral colors, and it’s water resistant enough that you could go swimming in it.

Cons

  • The color may not be for you
  • Simple design, may not have enough extra features

While I really like the colors of this timepiece, I know that brown and black together can irritate some people, so the black version may be a better choice, though both versions lack the technical and visual upgrades of more complex models.

When it comes to purchasing a watch, the main thing to think about is whether it was the features that you want.  If you’re looking for a simple watch with a hint of edge and without a lof of bells and whistles, Invicta makes high quality products that meet all of the promises they make.
