New Invicta watch

Post by iain »

First a couple of disclaimers. I know this is in the CW section rather than other brands but it’ll become obvious why as you read on. Secondly, this has been posted on the CW Facebook page which is where I first read about it. I’m just posting here as I know some aren’t on there.

Anyway here it is

And a link to the invicta website just in case you can no longer contain your excitement.

Personally I love the unique design and striking orange and blue colour scheme. If only CW designed watches like this then they’d surely be on to a winner........

Think I'll stick with a version from a small British firm based in Maidenhead.

I’m quite taken aback by this! I would expect such a blatant rip off to come from no name manufacturers in China and to be found on Alibaba, but not from a big brand like Invicta.

It’s a massive complement to CW. Invicta normally just copy subs and seamasters

That’s some brass neck right there.

But I like how some of the numbers will be upside down when the bezel is rotated (if, indeed, it does).

That's way beyond a "homage", I'm surprised they put 'Invicta' on the dial!

What a shame. They just rip off the look and make it bigger like they always did :lol:

Well, I wasn’t that keen on the original but my word that’s bad!

Cool to copy? But seems like the PR pointer didn't make it, nor the date window....

I don't think Guy has too much to worry about. :thumbup:

Obviously Invicta didn't have access to the SH21 so they installed their own SH1T movement....
