The rounded face feels very classic and not at all overbearing. The strap is light weight enough to look good even on a thinner wrist, and would look especially elegant when matched with other black and gold accessories (such as an attractive belt or shoes).
Because of its smaller and simpler design, it may not appeal to those looking for something more noticeable. Also, the date display can be difficult to read if you have poor eye sight, since it is quite small.

The Invicta Corduba offers all the basics. It’s a good quality watch that would fit in flawlessly in an office environment or wear nicely with casual wear as well.
