Men’s Invicta II Silver Dial Stainless Steel Quartz 370m Watch Review

The Invicta II collection was created in response to a wave of technological and design inventions that have helped create some very remarkable modern watches. While boxers may follow the motto “form follows function,”  the Men’s Invicta II Silver Dial Stainless Steel Quartz 370 watch attempts a marriage of both walking hand in hand. However the brushed and polished stainless steel look with black numerals and time notches suggests this watch is more for looks. But the watch boasts protection from flame-fusion crystal, water-resistance up to depths of 100 meters, and features luminous hands. So while it may look elegant, it certainly isn’t delicate as well. The intent of this timepiece is to look good while also having impeccable craftsmanship. I believe this is accomplished in many respects by the product. The design and structure of the watch seem sound enough for anyone, but its size is what gives it a particular audience.

Men's Invicta II Silver Dial Stainless Steel Quartz 370 Size

The larger design of the watch makes it easier to read

With its large size, including large arabic numerals, magnified date inside the 3 marker, and a large overall width, this watch is perfect to those trying to make astatement, larger individuals, or those who need reading glasses. Even if you are larger, you made need to have the band of the watch adjusted after purchasing because of its size. With a clasp design it may mean you won’t be able to do this by yourself, however this is common with many watches and may be worth it if you like the design and longevity of such a feature. If you are willing to deal with getting the watch adjusted to fit your wrist, and you enjoy the larger size, this watch is a good fit.

Another drawing point of this watch is the price. While it retails for around $500, it can be found much cheaper if you look around. On Amazon the watch can be had for less than $100. For how well built this watch is, it is certainly a good price and a good investment as the watch is designed to last. If you are looking for an affordable, large face watch this may be the one for you.

Pros

  • Durable, water-resistant design
  • Elegant brushed stainless steel look
  • Large face easy to see and read
  • Luminous design makes visibility even better

Cons

  • Larger watch may be too big for some
  • Can not easily adjust band

Get this watch if you are a larger individual looking for a watch to match your size, want a distinctive yet elegant piece that is durable and affordable, or if you have trouble reading the faces of smaller watches.

Avoid this watch if you hate large watch faces, or simply want a smaller watch.
