Default Pleasantly surprised purchase!

I've had more than a few Invicta's and never experienced any of the horror story's that have been reported.. So while browsing through WRUW I came across an Invicta "Scooby" and had to have one! the hunt was on.. It was harder than I thought. I had to settle for a newer version (6925) it was more cost friendly.. $107.00 shipped... But I am very impressed! while Wish it had the NH35A movement its still not a bad watch for the price.

I'm not an Invicta fan, too many odd extras added to their over all line, BUT, this is nice. Clean in simple.. Great find and you chose a good one.

It's a good looking model.
Has a very Oris vibe.

Hope you enjoy it!

This is a great watch for the money. A great way to decide if Oris may or not be for you, IMO. I owned the green/red version and wish I had it back. Sacrificed it to fund another piece. I'm sure an Oris has better finish and all but I'd rather own this than any Oris I've seen so far. Big congratulations.

What a get db, and what a price too ! Man oh man, that is something ! Has such a neat design with the case, and how it bends outward like that. Kind of almost has an Oris diver feel to it, and the mix of black, and red couldn't be cooler either. This one's going to be hard to take off. Hope you keep on enjoying ! Congratulations !!!

I owned one of those many years ago and liked it a lot. One of their better models.

Congrats on the pick up.

The Scooby is one of the best models Invicta ever made. I had one of the editions with ETA movement. It was a great looking and very comfortable watch to wear.
