Review of Invicta’s Midsize Men’s Reserve F0012

0 Comment

This watch is exquisite! Invicta’s Reserve Collection is known for its elite design and craftsmanship. The midsize F0012 with GMT, yellow dial stainless steel and gunmetal quartz is no exception. This is a beautiful piece that will be a wonderful addition to any collection.

The two tone stainless steel and gunmetal band contrasts beautifully with the yellow dial making this timepiece very striking. Its features include:

  • flame fusion crystal
  • analog display
  • fold over clasp with safety
  • stainless steel case
  • 42 millimeter case diameter
  • 17 millimeter case thickness
  • two tone stainless steel band
  • 25 millimeter band width
  • standard mens band length
  • yellow dial
  • stainless steel bezel
  • stationary bezel function
  • calendar date at 3:00
The watch has luminous hands, screw down accents and black 24 hour markers. This piece is also a pro diver watch and is water resistant to 1640 feet. With elite swiss quartz movement this watch is at the top of the Invicta heap. I especially am drawn the two tone links on the inside of the band. The silver and black give it a classy and elegant look while maintaining its masculine and powerful appeal.
Being midsize this watch is perfect for smaller men with smaller wrists. Many of Invicta’s watches, in both the pro diver series and the reserve collection can be quite large and seem clunky if they do not have a big wrist to go on. Being a smaller man, and a style bias toward color dials and two tone contrast, this watch speaks to me as a piece of art and rarely can i say that about a timepiece.
Retail price for this piece is $1,5965, which is a good price. However, like many other Invicta timepieces, you can find it for much cheaper online. I found this watch for $597.50 on WatchesOnNet and nextdaywatches.com. On Amazon, amazingly, this watch sells for $275! This is a 83% off deal. For those who thought they cannot afford a watch of this quality, think again! This watch is more than affordable for anyone it appeals to. It is also affordable enough to buy as a gift for a loved one.
You can wear this watch up or play it down. It is perfect for everyday, office use as well as for fancy get togethers and special occasions.
Like all Invicta watches, this watch is covered by the WatchesOnNet warranty which will protect this watch against most repairs and complication for 24 months.
Do yourselves a favor, if you are looking for a beautiful and elegant new watch. Look no further.
