Are you seeking a functional yet dressy watch for everyday wear? Perhaps predominantly white with silver and a chronograph function? The Invicta Women’s Ceramics White Mother Of Pearl Dial White Ceramic Quartz Watch 296 may be the timepiece for you, especially if you want one that imparts an impression of boldness and efficiency.

Clean, crisp, with a smooth ceramic bracelet strap, the Invicta 296 has many features going for it. The elegance of the strap matches the elegance of the dial. The shimmering mother-of-pearl dial has a large Arabic marker for the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions, as well as raised luminous, silver toned hour markers, surrounded by a rim of submarker lines and circles at the hour positions, which make it very easy to read the time. Two sub-dials are on the left and right side of the watch, giving symmetrical balance, aesthetic detail, and practical application: one dial is for the date, and the other is for the day. Even the stainless steel bezel’s six screws add to the industrial aesthetic of the watch, as they are evenly spaced and line up with the hour markers. This bezel lies on top of a 12 pointed case, for even more geometric artistry.

Other features include:

  • Push button-hidden clasp
  • Screw-down crown
  • Flame-fusion crystal
  • Swiss quartz movement
  • Water resistance of up to 330 feet/100 meters/10 ATM

Other pros, besides its streamlined look and easy hour, day, and date readability, is that it can be taken snorkeling or swimming.

However, it may not be a watch for everybody, as some may consider the dial too cluttered, the look too industrial, and want something either more casual, sporty, or jewelry-like.

You cannot buy the Invicta 296 on the Web site, but many other online stores sell this fine watch, for prices as low as $225.
