Invicta Men’s Akula F0014 Review

0 Comment

The Invicta men’s Akula F0014 with blue dial and black leather is not your ordinary watch. It has a truly unique look for those who crave something different.

This piece is unique due to its larger stainless steel case. The case itself is not that much larger than other standard size men’s watches. Its diameter is only 52 millimeters, which is large sure, but not overly so. It appears larger because the case is longer. It runs further towards the band on both sides. This gives the watch a larger feel that would work well for larger men. It’s other features include:

  • black pig skin leather band with 35 millimeter width
  • buckle clasp
  • flame fusion crystal
  • 16 millimeter case thickness
  • stainless steel
  • date calendar at 4:30
  • water resistant to 330 feet
  • swiss quartz movement
  • blue dial color
  • analog display

This piece has a stainless steel bezel with screw down accents and white, luminous hands with black minute markers. The dial has three subdials for 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 1/10 second. This Russian Diver watch will certainly not disappoint with its features. It is perfect for any diver as well as for everyday use. It can be worn up or down, highlighting is athletic feel or its classy, elegant design.

The watch however is quite large, especially with the longer dial. This piece might not work as well on smaller men with smaller wrists. It can be a bit bulky and works well with men who like larger watches.

Retail price for this watch is $1,295 which is a pretty good price. However, like many other Invicta watches, you can get this piece for considerably cheaper. For example, i found this watch on worldofwatches.com and nextdaywatches.com for $487.50; a 62% off deal! On Amazon i found it for the amazing price of $199.99 for a 85% off deal! Bizrate.com said the average price for this watch was $317.58. This level of affordability makes this excellent timepiece available for anyone who it appeals to. It will make an invaluable addition to any collection as well as make a wonderful gift for a loved one.

Like all Invicta watches, this piece comes with the WatchesOnNet warranty. This will cover your watch for 24 for most repairs and complication that might arise. This will give you peace of mind and you can feel comfortable really wearing this watch everyday. It is a very well made durable piece.
