I would apologise to any owners on here for this entry, but I don't think they have sold any. :lol:

Ahh, but you can only see half of it... it’s actually a pair of handcuffs with a watch attached so you can time your incarceration :?

^^^ Only slightly Patrick? How short are you? I’ll loan you a few quid buddy. :thumbup:
By slightly Steve, I mean I'd have to have a 4 into 1 consolidation (house, pension, car and watch collection) to afford that watch, any contributions gratefully received :lol:
I could stretch to a twenty, if you promise I’ll get it back. :thumbup:

Regarding why they bother the Invicta one in the OP is of a similar design to the Agat Zlatoust Russian divers watch, there are quite a few Russian watches similar out there. Corum have been doing out there designs on their bubble watches for years as have RM. B&R have loads of these square case skull watches which sell well, Steinhard did a similar watch that sold out almost immediately so there clearly is a market for them. A lot of it especially on higher end watches is just a what can we do on a watch?
