I've had quite a few Invictas over the years, but never could get used to anything over 48mm. A few of my G shocks are about 50 mm but they are comfortable and look right on my 7 3/4" wrist. Invicta has a lot of fans. Many have hundreds in their collections. I've been collecting since 2006 and been on several forums...never heard of anybody with 200-300 Seikos or Citizens or Orients in their collections. I do remember reading about a guy who had 50 Rolex subs in his collection. Some guys are happy driving a Toyota Corolla others like to have a big truck all decked out with big tires, etc. I own 3 Invictas but have owned over 70...I take it personally when somebody calls them pieces of shit. Freedom of speech...the sword cuts both ways.

Of course you do.
Not only are you invested in the shut-in shopping network, you have drank the nvicta Kool-Aid since 2006.

George, I still own several Invicta models myself. I've never made a negative comment to any that you own to the best of my knowledge.

So unless you do own this one, nothing was directed to you.

As to my opinion on this model, it stands. It's the absolute stupidest watch they have produced.

I took it personal because calling a watch a "piece of shit" is just plain rude. You could have said "it's like an Alain Silberstein on steroids as far as styling goes" I have zero interest in 99.5% of the Invictas I see on TV, including the one you pointed out.
(The gunmetal has sold out)

I also take Hater's comment about drinking the Kool Aid as rude, overused and inaccurate. I have owned over 440 watches since I started collecting and the 70 or so Invictas were 16-17% of what I owned. So I also drank a lot more Kool Aid for the following brands which I owned at one time:
Rolex
Omega
IWC
Breitling
Tag Heuer
Tudor
Longines
Sinn
Maurice Lacroix
Chronoswiss
Corum
Ball
Oris
Ebel
Stowa

The bottom line...no hard feelings, just expressing my view.

I could have, but that's not my style......I'll call it as I see it :D

And expressing your view is what this forum is all about, among other things.
All opinions are welcome
