Whoa... That is not true. I cant change your mind about it but this is what I am talking about. Rolex costs thousands of dollars. Fine. but what I am saying is this. Just wait till you see the Invicta collection I have.. YES I buy them because they look like rolex. I buy them because they look like Franc Muller, Bulgari, etc etc..
NOW. as for quality, and I am a horology hobbiest, it is GOOD QUALITY.. there are only so many watches out there in the world. Here is a list of watches based on QUALITY !! OK ??
SHIT : Metal watches usually made in asia, Basically crap, the bracelets are folded metal, the cases are brass which are coated with stainless steel, movements are usually cheaper quartz, and the crystal is GLASS or plastic. You can notice the watch is not very well finished, there are rough spots on the metals, Watches in this catagory are, usually Casio, Timex, Pulsar , fake watches, and the watch that is in this thread's topic.
inbetween this and the next level are usually Seiko, Citizen, Pulsar low end watches..
Piss : A wee tad better, the bracelets are at least solid ingots, but still lacks the quality of finish, the watches are basically ill constructed. fashion type watches, Movements are decent but not great, some are made of stainless steel, some are coated. watches in this catagory are such like Banana republic, metal swatches, kenneth cole, coach, basically brand name watches whos brand makes things other than watches. Lower Tissot watches, better seikos and citizens, and lower watches from the swatch group falls into this catagory..
Water: Now a little above in quality comes with this. Movements are either Japanese Miyota Automatic or ETA mecanical, Japanese and Swiss makes good decent movements. as you already know ETA mechanical movements can be had in the 20 dollar each price range. basically the watches are full stainless steel, the bracelets are solid ingots and well finished, smooth, and the clasp works wonderfully. Crystal are of hardened mineral glass or sapphire. Such brands are to be divided. Honest brands know what they are selling and offer for a realistic prices. MOVADO sells these watches at a high cost and still not as good as invicta made watches.. Tissot's better watches, ORis, Hamliton, basically any watch with an unmodified movement from either ETA or other basic movement makers .. and what a joke those Gorgio armani watches are...
Food : Basically the same watch as above , but under a 8X loupe, you can see that the quality of the watch is good, they take care of the watches they make and you notice that the finish is above what is called for in that price range, INVICTA sells these watches and at a low cost because they are not great watches.. but still the quality is very good and is well made.
Wine : Tag heuer watches, Basically very well made case and bracelets, sapphire for crystals, the case, bracelets and crystal and dial quality is that of high end brands, but the movements are ETA or something...
Jack Daniels : Rolex, Omega watches, great finished cases, great finished bracelets, sapphire crystal, but In house made Movements or modified ETA movements. note: omega have a co-axial escapement ! these watches are great, but the horological aspect is little, rolex have a few basic movements, nothing fancy...
Orange juice watches : same a rolex in finish and quality, but the movements are very complicated, such as franc muller watches which has all those little doo dads and thingys, tourbillion, perpetual calendar, minute repeater, power reserve, and plenty of other thing..
So when I say Invicta's watches have good quality, they actually do. the finish on their watch is great for the price, the cases are full stainless steel, the bracelets are solid throughout and on different models, the crystal are sapphire or mineral glass. I really think they put out a great product for the price. that is why I am so thrilled with them !!
