Default Invicta "Orange Monster"

I was looking for a Seiko Orange monster but they seemed to have gotten really expensive lately so I got this instead. It's used,I looked for a new one but I think Invicta stopped making them around 10 years ago

Cool piece enjoy it. I'm kind of looking for an orange dialed diver myself. That's a neat one with the matching bezel.

You sure that isn't on of Eyals "Frankenmonsters"?
Jus saying Bro!.

Talking escalating pricepoints. Have you seen the
rising prices of the SKX007, 007 and SKX781?

I recall when 007s and 009 were $140.00 and BMs
were in the same ball park. But that was back n tha
day of 7S26. Now the Monsters have 6R15's. Wow!!!

I bought a Seiko SCCO17 for chunp change back when
Now they're $215.00 +.Tip: Buy an SNE cus they r
cheaper

Hey neat Truetone ! ..These look really nice, and even though they look
like the Monster, they still change things up in the coolest ways really.

Just the shape of the hands is different, and then how about the bezel
shape?! Or how they have filled the markers, markings, along with the
numbers with orange?! ..Even the orange itself seems darker !

Big congrats there 2 U on this one Truetone !!!

And you say Eyal Loya 86'd this OM "Homage"?
Bad move. I'd have bought one. I have a Cord-
uba Ibizia diver from Invicta. Has the Miyota OS20
engine (Chrono) the best Victer I ever owned.
Even Invicter gets it right sometimes!!!

Now you dunnit. Got me beating the bushes for a 2615.
Wonder if EBay or WatchRecon has one o these pieces?
What is the movement? MH35 or 36? It could be a pal
to my Seiko Black Monster or Baby Monster SCVF47

Thanks Lou, the 2615 has a Miyota movement. I think Invicta made these from around 2004-2007.


They also made a 2614 with a black bezel.

I always liked the older Invicta Models. Seemed like at that time they were just stealing design but making them decently instead of stealing designs and making them cheaply.

Hey huge congrats there !!! You have to be so happy with it, and wow
it seems like it's in really fantastic shape from here too, and basically brand
new also.

You can really get a fantastic feel for the watch in your great pic above
too, and see that this orange is even more impressive in person. As is
the bezel, and bracelet. ..It's too cool True ! Huge congrats 2 U !!!

Hope you really enjoy it !

After seeing your orange monster I can say Orange is the new black, you really got a couple of gems.

Which Miyota movement is in this watch? Do the numbers "06-03" on the bracelet end links indicate a date of manufacture? Does the number "275" inside the bracelet indicate a model number? Just wondering,the bracelet on my 2018 Invicta 8928ob doesn't have any numbers on it at all.

I found this information posted by "Silent Sam" on The Watch Talk Invicta Forum in 2010:

"Some Invicta PD models have a European style four digit date stamped on the end links between the lugs. The first two digits are the year. The second two are the month. I'm wearing a PD Abyss day/date automatic today. The date on this watch is 07/02. So it was assembled in February of '07."

So my watch was made in March of 2006. Not sure what the 275 indicates.
