The Invicta Men’s 6620 II collection chronograph stainless steel silver dial watch features a unidirectional, stainless steel bezel with a tachymeter on the inside bezel. It is water resistant up to 330 feet or 100 meters and has a luminous, analog display with Arabic numerals etched into the silver dial. The chronograph has 60 second, 30 minute, and day of the week sub-dials. There is also a date display at the 4:00 position. The dial display is a flame-fusion crystal. The clasp type is a fold over clasp with a double push button safety. The stainless steel band has a width of 22 mm.

This watch is a popular last year’s model but has its faults. The size of the dial is favorable, it is not too bulky but it is not so small to make the sub-dials or the inner tachymeter difficult to read. The design is very classy, elegant and attractive. The pretty 6620 II collection chronograph stainless steel silver dial watch will garner attention from others. And, as the manufacturer no longer features this watch in their catalogue, this timepiece comes relatively cheap at online retailers, especially considering its high retail price. It is not however, a perfect watch. The craftsmanship is questionable as the hands on the smaller sub-dials have the highly undesirable tendency to just simply fall off and break. Aside from a rather serious quality control issue there is also a significant design flaw, all of which is disappointing considering the reputation of the manufacturer Invicta. The problem with the design is that the band for this watch had to have been drawn up with giants in mind. While the dial itself is not oversized the band is most certainly much too long. It may better fit a forearm than a wrist.

The Invicta Men’s 6620 II collection chronograph stainless steel silver dial watch is a $495 watch marked down to around $100 but despite the huge discounted price this is a questionable buy. With shaky quality control and sizing issues the upside of this piece does not make up for its downside. Yes, the stainless steel water resistant to 100 meters watch will look good on the captain of a nice yacht, but for the typical seaman and land-lubber alike there is very little practicality in this watch. It’s a risky buy as it is, and much better options from the manufacturer Invicta exist and maybe even within the Invicta II collection but those other better models will almost definitely not be available at a 70-80% discount.
