If it were reasonably sized, really wouldn't be a bad watch. That thing looks HUGE!

It has a decent drop with curved lugs, so actually wears pretty comfortably. The high curved and domed crystal make it play bigger. I had forgotten about the sharkskin strap too.

Needless to say, this is a "around the house" watch.

I have to look some more, as I remember purchasing a a triangle shaped one, like a bad version of a Hamilton Ventura

I had the COSC Lupah that Slop never sent the COSC paperwork for. I spent some time trying to get Invicta or Slop to send me the certificate and got the run around. Traded it off on Geeks, without the paperwork, before they shut down. I only wore it a couple of times because of the size, it swallowed my wrist.

Yeah, that sounds like the typical Invicta story - false advertising, bad customer service, and one of the watches that likely originally caused carpal tunnel. Smart to trade it off!

I think I'll take a photo of mine tomorrow so we all can have a good laugh.

I keep these type watches under the white socks.

And I never wear white socks.

Is the the extra fancy Grand Lupah?
I dunno. It same in a flat white box with five "leather" straps, each stiffer than Johnny "The Wadd" Holmes in 1975. I think I paid $40 or something for this, and it is unbalanced, oversized, and unwearable, with lug edges so sharp they play 3 Card Monte on 42nd Street and never lose once.
