When, oh when will this mania for enormous watches end? Timepieces today look more like sundials than anything that should reasonably be worn on one’s wrist. Nevertheless, Invicta Women’s II Silver Dial Stainless Steel Quartz manages to inch toward a reasonable size. Even better, the cleanly designed case and classic bracelet make it seem almost elegant.

 

Watch Features:

  • Analog Display
  • Stainless-Steel 31mm Case with 9mm Thickness
  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stainless Steel Bracelet with 16mm Width
  • Stationary Bezel
  • Stainless Steel Luminous Dial
  • Flame-Fusion Crystal Dial Window
  • Date Calendar at 3 o’clock Position
  • Silver-Toned Hands with Luminous Seconds-Hand
  • Water Resistant up to 330ft
  • Stainless Steel Clasp with Fold-Over Push Button Safety Release

The size is awkward. At 31mm, it isn’t big enough to qualify as a bold and trendy Boyfriend Watch, nor is it small enough to achieve feminine delicacy; it exists in an aesthetic Never-Never Land. However, it doesn’t have that cheaply ornate, overly designed quality so typical of today’s timepieces. It can just as easily be worn with t-shirts and denim as it can with business attire. The Women’s II Collection also comes in blue or black, but the silver dial is by far the most graceful option.

The hours are in large Arabic numerals, which are very easy to read, and there is a date window at the 3 o’clock marker. The flame-fusion crystal dial window is, according to numerous testimonials, quite flimsy and prone to shatter or spontaneously crack. The bracelet is quite large and might have to be adjusted, although the bracelet links can be easily removed.

The movement is Japanese Quartz, which is quite precise, only losing one or two minutes per year at most. The piece is water-resistant to up to 330ft, quite a distance for a standard watch. The dial is luminous, as is the second-hand and the date window, so the watch can read in the dark with ease.

The Invicta Women’s II Silver Dial is simple and polished, with a legible face that keeps excellent time. It is slightly too big to be truly elegant, but it is still a reasonably priced timepiece suitable for any occasion—even water sports. Just be sure to adjust the bracelet before getting into the pool.
