Ladies, are you looking for a cute, fashionable watch that will go with any outfit and won’t drain your bank account? If your answer is “yes,” you’ll probably want to consider the Invicta Women’s Lupah Mother of Pearl Dial Watch 5168.

When I say that this watch will match anything you choose to wear, I mean it, because this limited-edition Invicta creation comes with four extra leather straps. In addition to the grey band that is featured on the watch, pearl, sea green, pink, and brown bracelets are also included in the box. So if you’re also looking for a high level of versatility in your next watch, this range of color choices makes the 5168 look even more appealing.

Another great thing about this timepiece is that it has a unique look. To be more poetic about it, this is a watch that happily fuses tradition and modernity together. With its rectangular case shape, mother-of-pearl dial and quirky-looking Arabic numerals, “dime a dozen” is just about the last phrase you’d use to describe it.

Some other features include:
• Flame-fusion crystal
• Water-resistant up to 100 feet
• Stainless steel case and bezel
• Tang buckle clasp
• Swiss-quartz movement
• Push-down crown

As for why you should buy this watch, the reasons are almost endless. Okay, maybe not endless, but there are definitely some really good ones. They are:
• The price—seeing as this model is currently out of date, the only places you can easily find it are at online retailers (i.e. Amazon.com) where you will pay nowhere near the $395 retail price.
• Ease of use—In addition to not having any confusing decorations or additional functions on the dial, the additional bands are easy to put on and take off.
• Its unique and interesting style

Even though many women will like this timepiece for the above reasons, it’s probably not a watch that has universal appeal. Here are some reasons why you might not want it:
• While some might like its non-traditional look, it could be a turnoff for others.
• Readability—silver numbers against a mother-of-pearl background creates a low contrast that isn’t very easy to read.
• Though it is rare, there have been reports of the wrist-bands cracking from frequent use.

Overall, this member of Invicta’s women’s Lupah collection is a watch that is most definitely worth its price. This is especially true since it is basically impossible to find it listed online at full, manufacturer’s price. Weighty and chic enough to look and feel expensive, and versatile and simple enough to be practical, the 5168 will make a good addition to any woman’s accessory collection.
