Luminox 3202...... I got spoiled on Tritium in the Army. The 3200 series are stainless with sapphire crystals.




My wife wears a 7204 which is the same watch in 3/4 size with a blue dial.

I've just got an Invicta 9937 right now that I wear pretty much daily (it's a Submariner homage)

Someday when I can justify the expense I'll have an Omega Speedmaster as well.

I'm in the market for a watch or two and you guys seem to know your stuff. I'm looking to spend no more than $300 per watch. I want one with a metal band and on with a leather band. I like watches with large cases but not huge. Any suggestions?

Also, is this a legit website? Seems like a decent deal if it's real and the site is legit.

EDIT: Found the same watch on Amazon for $75. Is Invicta a decent brand? How's the quality on these watches?

Invicta is synonymous with "Fake" imo... too gaudy.

Try a Hamilton.. I have one, great watch (Wear it when I'am not wearing my Tag). Dont be fooled by the "American made" the movements are swiss. Very nice watch for the price.

Heres a vendor site.

Thanks for the information. I'm new to the watch world, so I don't know much. I found a different Invicta for $60. For $60 bucks, I'm gonna buy it and just wear it everyday. But I'm still going to look into a nicer watch. Those Hamiltons are very nice looking watches. The problem is deciding which one I want. Lol

Here's the link to the other Invicta. Like I said, for $60, I don't really care what happens to it. Plus being a student, I'm on a budget.

What do you think about Bulova? Are those decent watches?

I don't mind that invicta! I hate the ones that look like Presidential/submar Rollies

I dont know much about Bulova.. I think an aunt or uncle bought me one a while back... I loved the face but hated the band (Genuine leather w/ alligator imprinted on it).. I think I still have it.. Do you want it?

Yeah, this one is really nice. And I agree with you. I hate companies that try to copy Rolex's design.

Do you have a pic of the band? I was also thinking about changing the leather band out for a metal one. Idk if I like the white stitching that comes on it. Change it or keep it?

That's just BS. Invicta has never tried to pass their watches off as Rolexes. They are a legitimate company that sells affordable, well made watches.

I just ordered that Invicta. Is it possible to swap the leather band for a metal one? And do I have to by the metal band directly from Invicta for it to fit?

I know nothing of their movements.. but this kinda tells you what I am getting at.






The real deal costs 20 grand

Ironic that the hands are in almost the exact same spot...? I think not.

W/ the above being said... I still buy one... just not one that was trying to be something haha

That band is a little too much for me. Thanks though.

I'll post some pics when I get my Invicta in. In the mean time, I'll be looking for a watch WITH a metal band. Maybe something a little bit nicer too.

Analog watches are almost always advertised in the ten past ten position. Timex uses 10:09:36 exclusively. Adjusting your photos for parallax, I'm guessing both those watches, despite not being Timex are set to 10:09:36 which has become somewhat of an advertising standard.

That said, the invicta sub definitely pays homage to rolex's design. The other invicta you posted looks nothing like that bvlgari, except for the color scheme. The hands, markers, bezel, crown, band, date function, etc. are all different.

Thanks. Was a bit difficult to find the alaska project (since I bought it in 2010, and it was released in 2008 I believe), but it was the one I wanted and I had to have the white face. The original one is always a classic though.
