Re: Invicta 1953

Cheers chaps.... that’s the last time I’m getting involved in any conversation on here.... just ordered one :lol: 627BFC56-A899-4059-A7AE-F5611464EF23.jpeg I hope you like it! If it doesn’t wind your mainspring, wait until they sell out on the Invicta store then sell it on! Best of luck and cheers ...

Re: Invicta 1953

Mate, I think that’ll be a very small sub-section! I dislike intensely the majority of Invicta’s output. Gaudy, quartz oversized monstrosities with a corporate pricing policy more akin to a late-night shopping channel than a serious watch brand. HOWEVER.... This watch is pretty decent. It’s not gaud...

Re: Invicta 1953

You’re being very defensive about your drinking.

If it’s become a problem, don’t worry, there are people who can help.

You’re really covering yourself in glory tonight, Kiter.

Best move onto the spirits I reckon.

Re: Invicta 1953

My apologies. I didn’t see where you mentioned that you had owned an Invicta 1953; I just saw a blanket comment that ‘all Invictas are ****’. If you can point me to the comments you made about your experience of owning this particular model then I apologize. At the moment all I can see are a load of...

Re: Invicta 1953

Well, the thing is, you haven’t seen this watch. You haven’t handled it. You don’t own it. You haven’t put it in a timegrapher. You haven’t looked at the finishing under a loupe; you haven’t checked the bezel. You haven’t pressure tested it. You haven’t paid for it with your own money; you haven’t c...

Re: Invicta 1953

As I said, maybe in future stay off the old computer when you’ve had a couple.

Your comments didn’t add anything to the discussion, they neither educated nor entertained, so hopefully lesson learnt, eh?

Re: Invicta 1953

Mate, it’s €120, the watch is running at COSC, the bezel is nice, it’s well finished etc etc.

Honestly, that sort of comment is normally heard by Rolex snobs talking sh1t about Christopher Ward watches.

You’ve made a proper tit of yourself there. Maybe in the future, don’t drink and post, eh?

Re: Invicta 1953

By the way mine is at +1/day. Just unbelievably good for a cheap movement. Hopefully it stays that way.

Re: Invicta 1953

Yeah, I see what you mean. It was just a suggestion, bearing in mind that they have introduced some new bezel colours etc that I really don’t like (sometimes it seems that Invicta just can’t help themselves) With the gilt minute track, hand and dial script I thought gilt numerals on the bezel would ...

Re: Invicta 1953

Many thanks all for the kind words. I wondered if I should don my flame suit for posting about an Invicta but it does seem this has hit the spot. You are correct, it is missing the standard Invicta engraving on the side of the case. Thank Christ. I didn’t like the other bezel colourways. The only ch...

Re: Invicta 1953

They’ve just released a decent quartz chronograph that looks ok, but otherwise the rest of their range holds no interest to me.

This is a delightful little bugger, however.
