Very cool Contra !

How can you go wrong with this one? ..You can't actually !
You have a classic, and sporty design that you will never
get tired of, and that great movement there too. ..Oh, and
all of it for an insanely nice price !

Probably is tough waiting for tomorrow to come, but am
thinking it will be worth it. Big congratulations Contra !!!

I own the same exact watch and the Seiko NH35 movement in it is running +3 seconds a day!

First thing I did with mine is taking the crappy bracelet off and put on a super comfortable Bond Nato!

Just arrived from Amazon earlier today and I have sized it and I am going to try it out and see how it does.

Looks beautiful Contra, and even more dynamic in your pics
as well !

You really get a feel for the design, along with size of it.
Can tell this is one that will get a ton of wrist time, and
get a lot of looks there. It's one of those watches that
takes on any, and every occasion.

Hope you are really enjoying. Huge congrats once again !!!

To be perfectly honest that is the only Invicta I like, the only thing stopping me from purchasing one is the branding on the side of the watch.

Amen bruh... Its a shame, cause all of the Grand Divers accept the newest generation have INVICTA chiseled into the side. But most Pro Divers don't. I still will buy one from time to time. You just have to know how to shop them. My number one rule is, no more Invicta on the case or anywhere else but on the dial.
Lots of talk around here lately about Sub clones, Black Bay clones and companies not willing to put in the time and energy to come up with an original thought for new cases, dials, hour markers and hand sets. Well, you have to give it to Invicta there. With over 2000 different models coming out every year. One thing they can claim is originality. Love them or hate them. At least they're different. Sure they make the standard Sub clone. But they make so much more. People on forums write them off as big junk. But if you take the time, do your due diligence, you can get a hell of a deal on a great watch. They're not all big. I have at least 10 between 44 and 46mm that have great movements, good construction and haven't had one break on me yet. You might hate 95% of what they make, but there has to be at least one that's gonna make you think. You know that's worth $100 bucks.
Contra, congrats and enjoy your new piece for a long time to come.
