Default Buyers Beware - Important Read

Invicta has become the Walmart of watches. Now Walmart is a successful income producing company, but continues to source and negotiate products that can be acquired at the lowest possible cost to sell below many other retailers and yet generate solid profit margins, in-part from volume based selling. Now Invicta continues to sell over-sized watches with parts sourced from where they can acquire at lowest possible cost and generate profits via television mass market sales. I personally find the claims of Invicta and Evine sales people of quality, comfort, et al. to always be a stretch. I firmly believe my 7.25" wrist should not a target market due to the size, bulk and weight of these watches. I have sold off all of them because my arm/wrist will soon wear out from wearing a 1/2 to 1 pound watch. That coupled with harsh metal link watch bands to stiff rubber and leather bands and the lack of customer service urgency (find help in a Walmart...good luck)...coupled with the sharp depreciation of Invicta watches after a few months and a current F RATING WITH THE LOCAL BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU IN FLORIDA, all supports Buyer Beware of INVICTA!

I wouldn't say Wal Mart in the same sentence as Invicta. Wal Mart is a very reputable company and has a Satisfaction Guaranteed or return it and get your money back policy. Invicta is quite the opposite of Wal Mart in reality.

Good post
Invicta watch is generally a joke, except some like them... A lot
So we have to be nice and not start micro agresson thread or replies on some forums
as members get miffed.

Or we get banned. WUS up ?

Maybe the OP figured this was news? They're not for me but they have their followers and probably represent good value when you buy them at rock bottom prices.

I buy lots of old Invictas. Their value increases when they are soaked with tears and stink of regret.

Me thinks this was a drive by Invicta shooting.
Must have been a great "sale" at Evine.

Holy Cow. I can understand the frustration, but this hardly a news flash. Hopefully this isn't the last post from this member and he can move on.
