A touch of class mixed with a modern style, the Invicta Women’s Specialty White Dial 18K Gold Plated Case Black Nylon Quartz 1053 is one watch that beautifully offers flair and style to the wearer.

This piece is very much a statement piece with its oversized face at 35mm in diameter. The casing is brushed 18k gold stainless steel case that makes the size of the face stand out even more. The analog clock features black arabic numerals at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions and black batons at the others. There is also a day and date window by the 3 o’clock mark. Something to consider with this watch is the size of the hour marks. Because they are fairly large numerals and batons, it makes reading this watch very easy, which would be a plus for those who have a hard time reading the time on watches with tiny markings. And with the luminous minute and hour hands, this piece is incredibly easy on the eyes.

The strap on this timepiece is black nylon that clasps with a buckle. The nylon together with the gold casing makes for a fresh take on an otherwise classic watch. It is this kind of fusion and innovation that makes the Specialty collection so brilliant.

The Invicta Specialty 1053 watch comes at a retail price of $395.00, but can be found online for as low as $54.99 on certain sites. Indeed, for a watch that provides this much practicality as well as style, it is well worth the price.

One reviewer described this watch as more of a unisex watch because of the large size of the face. She added that it “looks very much like a men’s sport’s watch” and commented on the exceptional quality of the canvas strap stating, “would be comfortable to wear in warmer weather” (endless.com). If you are looking for a more feminine watch and are uncertain about the size of the Specialty 1053, I would suggest checking out Invicta’s exclusively female collections, such as the Angel and WIldflower collections. Both carry a range of extremely feminine to more unisex pieces that come in an assortment of styles of traditional to funky and edgy.

However, if you enjoy the look of a larger watch that gives a bold statement, the Invicta Women’s Specialty White Dial 18K Gold Plated Case Black Nylon Quartz 1053 is one watch that you should definitely consider. Whether as a gift to another or for yourself, giving Invicta is always a safe bet, sure to please.
