History Of Invicta

Latin for “invincible”, in 1837 Invicta was found in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, by Raphael Picard. Which makes this brand older than Rolex or Omega. Invicta made its watches with the belief that fine Swiss timepieces could be offered at modest prices.

In 2004 almost 170 years after Invicta was founded. The brand reestablishes itself as the Invicta Watch Group, adding the S. Coifman brand to it.

After that Invicta took its place in the market as being an affordable watchmaker. But instead of being Swiss, it became American. Its CEO is Eyal Lalo right now.

In 2011, the Invicta Watch Group appeared for the first time at the international jewellery and watch event Baseworld.

After that, it had some cool collaborations, like the one with Disney in 2016. Where they made limited edition watches for both men and women with a Disney twist.

Invicta Watches Can Be Big

Invicta watches can be as large as 65mm! So if you’re a small fella like I am be sure to keep away from these sized monsters. Other big ones are 61mm, 54mm and 48mm.

Considering that most watchmakers when they make a big watch it’s around 44m, Invicta really takes the cake when we’re talking about big watches.

Tho the biggest watches are 65mm, Invicta also makes a lot smaller watches like 39mm and 41mm.

Good Value For The Money

Invictas don’t keep their value and never go up. So don’t think when you’re buying a $100,- watch you can sell it with a profit.

For the quartz models, there is not really much to complain about when you’re keeping in mind that you only spend 100 bucks on it. The watch is durable and waterproof. Like with other quartz watches they need a new battery from time to time.

Some of their models can be complete pants, but I’ve had quartz from them previously and, for the price tag, I can’t really find much to complain about, the only real thing I noticed about mine was that it seemed to eat batteries a lot faster than most of my other quartz watches.

The Hate On Invicta

When asked if they think Invicta is worth it, most people will tell you straight up no. Tell you their crappy, bulky watches which make you look like the character out of the comic Ben10.

I asked the same question to some people and the following answer came up.

Out of the 161 voters, just 11 think Invicta watches are worth it. The other small group which voted for “some models” only exists of 36 people. The large amount of voters just said “no”.

Anwers to my poll, do you think a Invicta watch is worth it?

I can understand the “hate” on their big watches covered in diamonds. But Invicta does make some okay watches as well.

Invicta Watches Are Fake Rolex Watches

If you look at the PRO DIVER or SPEEDWAY models of Invicta, they kinda look like a cheap Rolex. Most people assume you’re trying to get away wearing a fake Rolex.

Don’t get me wrong wearing fake watches is the worst thing you can do. But the Invicta models are just dive watches that have been here forever. Well yeah the PRO DIVER looks like a Rolex Submariner. It is not a fake Rolex Submariner.

So if you like how the watch looks and you don’t have the money for a Submariner maybe the Invicta PRO DIVER is just the watch for you.

So, Is A Invicta Watch Worth It?

If you’re young and don’t have a big budget to spend on a watch. Well then Invicta is worth it.

If you just don’t have that budget yet and you want a watch, then I suggest you save your earnings to get yourself a proper automatic watch.

The big models of Invicta are not worth the money. The moment you’re spending more than $150,- at Invicta its also not worth buying one.

So here you have it. Is a Invicta worth it to you? That’s still on you to decide.
