Written by Quinn M. Redfield

The Invicta Men’s Specialty Black Textured Dial Black Leather (11413) is simply stylish. This classy watch is easy to read, durable, and

looks good with almost any suit. It’s versatile in that it can also be dressed down without looking conspicuous – making it a good watch for both work and play.

Features:
Luminous
Water-resistant
Leather strap
Stainless steel case
Silver hands and numerals

This durable time piece is water-resistant down to 100 meters (330 feet). It has a round face with silver roman numerals and hands set against black. The case is 44mm in diameter and 13mm thick. It’s made stainless steel with a black, textured dial. The black, leather strap is 22mm wide and 8.75 inches long with a stainless steel buckle clasp.

If you can find an Invicta Specialty available for purchase online, you can get the watch for a quarter of the average retail price. In stores, the Invicta Men’s Specialty (11413) typically goes for $495.00 or so, but online you can find them for as little as $106.29. I’d recommend checking World of Watches, eWatches, or Amazon first. If you prefer to try your watches, or at least see them in person before buying, I’d probably check out a brick and mortar retailer, but put off purchase until you can check the previously mentioned sites for a better deal.

Pros:

  • Very readable
  • Luminous
  • Durable

  • Versatile style

Cons:

This time piece isn’t just for show either, the Specialty keeps good time and has a highly readable face. The face glows in lower light situations, which really improves readability. The Invicta Men’s Specialty (11413) is good quality watch with a nice thick band and a good weight. The thick strap adds to the durability of the watch, but may be a little too thick for some men.

Back view of the Invicta Speciality (11413) – it's thick, black, leather strap; stainless steel case; and stainless steel buckle clasp.

The Invicta Specialty has a durable leather strap which measures 22mm wide and 8.75 inches long.

It’s sleek and stylish design fits to any occasion, whether you’re dressing up or down. Still, some believe the watch looks more expensive than it actually is. The heir of quality and sharp contrasting silver and black help give the Speciality an heir of sophistication. This gives you more bang for your buck if you’re looking to impress. That said, some may prefer a more obviously high style design.

Summary:
If you’ve got more delicate looking wrists, this watch will probably look a little bulky and out of place. While the watch looks good with pretty much any suit, those who really want to make a statement may want to find something flashier. The Men’s Invicta Speciality (11413) is perfect for men who want a watch that can follow them on the job or out and about on a weekend. In that case, the Invicta Speciality is definitely worth the price; even at $495.00.
