Default Where would I get the best price on an Invicta Submariner ?

I kinda like the auto coin edge Invicta auto submariner...Amazon has them for like 90.00 which is cheap...anywhere else to try ?
That movement is a decent movement I believe

If you have to buy an Invicta, be sure and get the one with the Seiko . NH35 movement, which is the same as the 4R36 Seiko model, it hacks and hand winds and is fairly accurate, heads above the Miyota 8215 movement in the cheaper models.

Also keep an eye on watchrecon.com or eBay you can find them there and usually at a fair price.

You may have already tried this:
Go to amazon "Warehouse Deals"
Watches that were returned.

I recently bought a Bulova 98B321 chrono
for $30.00 off amazons usual price. It's
running great. A return with no paperwork
and damaged shipping container.

eBay also has an abundance of this. A lot in decent condition in the $50 range.

But you do know that Seiko 5's are not that much more expensive. Its a better brand. (if you're into that thing) Your size requirement. (42mm) Come in all sorts of color combos. Japanese versions have cool Arabic Day wheels (below) And they have like the best lume ever !

Very good at first but it fades within an hour. After two hours you can still see it but it becomes increasingly difficult to tell time. Their proprietary Trit-nite lume is fair at best. However they do make several Pro Divers with Superluminova.
Like this one. http://www.evine.com/Product/645-885...CHES-_-645-885 Don't let the 50mm scare you. They wear small. Sale ends in six hours. You have 30 days to send it back.
Before Chazman brings it up. I must mention that you take a trip to the Tissell website. I am waiting for them to resume construction on the green on green 9015 sub. http://tisellkr.com/product/sold-out.../42/display/1/ Great watch with great features for the money.
If lume is really important to you. IMO, in your price range, you have to go Seiko or Tritium. Seiko is amazing and will last all night with proper charging. But nothing beats Tritium. No worry about charging 24/7. Here is my Navy Seal. Paid $175 NIB for it on the Bay. Lights up my box every night. And will for the next 20 years.

I'm sorry, my bad. It is a Swiss quartz Ronda 515. Forgot auto was one of your requirements. What did you think of the Invicta, the Tissell and or Seiko ?

The Invicta also has a ratcheting diver clasp on it and titanium center links on the bracelet on two of the models. I think the steel blue dial looks pretty good. Checks all the other boxes at a great price for an SW200, Sapphire glass front and back and Superluminova. Made in the Sellita factory in Switzerland. And you get an 8 slot suitcase that can be used for just about anything. Tools, lunchbox or even watches.
Its not combat, but hey, life is full of compromises. They give you a 5 year warranty and 30 days to check it out. If you don't like it send it back. Invicta's CEO has promised major changes in their customer service and repair department. We'll see how it pans out. But among the promises is two week max repair times. And phone call updates to let you know what is going on with your watch.
Or you can wait on the Tissell or start looking at Seiko 5's or whatever makes you happy. I'm sure you'll get tons of suggestions from other members. Mainly to avoid the Invicta like the plague...lol ! Forgive them cause they no not what they do... Good luck.

No answer must mean you're sticking to your guns on the black op's look. Most of the companies that make those types of watches will have quartz movements because they are built to be tough. Any auto that follows your requirements is going to be over your price range. So you're either parting with more coin or going with a quartz. No shame in that. Plenty of good quartz out there in your price range with good lume. I just showed you one. They make that same model with a black dial to complete your look. You might like a few of these. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...+seal&_sacat=0 or maybe these http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...ombat&_sacat=0
Once again, good luck shopping. The thrill is in the chase. Buy what you like. Like what you buy. Let us know what you decide on.
