    It should work as good as a Timex or Rolex for its intended purpose. I don't think it's worth it personally, I'd put that money towards something practical but that's just me.:)

    I have an Invicta watch and it is terrible. It won't stay wound and dies no matter how active I am. Find a Timex, less money and dependable.IMHO

    I used to collect watches, I have about 20 ,and I have a fancy shmancy invicta watch,which I wore once.., .. I think invicta is over priced,, and you see them all the time on the home shopping networks. I just checked on EBAY and there is this same one currently at $11.00 with 8 bidders.

    It's a chinese rebranded watch. Protip: If you see it advertised in American Rifleman as something to make you think it's somewhat European with some sort of heritage and an MSRP of $1500 that's now ON SALE FOR ONLY $149.99 (excluding $38.99 shipping), you know it's a rebranded thing.

    I've always liked timex. Bought this when I was in the Navy in the 90's and it is still going strong. It was $80 back then, a lot for the time. They still sell on ebay for $50. mA26snUno7YrWV5pHBq8oGg.jpg

    For that price I would buy a Seiko monster. Its a rock solid diver that is built like a tank keeps excellent time and glows like a torch at night.
