Really like the stadium dial. Something that Invicta has been crucified for doing for years. Dig the orange date. I like brushed finishes. But this one looks like it was done with a wire brush. They took an iconic 12hr chronograph movement and turned it into a 30 minute panda. Why ? For the money they're asking I'll buy three watches I like. IMO, this is a step backward for them.

Although I like this one as usual, or always Forza. 😄😊 Still see what you
are saying, and get your criticisms of the watch. It really does seem like they
went into full on bold mode with this one, and evidently newer models still
yet to be unveiled. What I think it is, is they just wanted to change things up
a little. (y) They were most likely thinking that they can, or already do the
classic, now let's try something new. So this one gives you a classic kind of
formula, but with a few new modern ingredients. Some will like the taste,
and others not so much. 😉 It's at least interesting to see.

Really appreciate your opinions as always sir. Thanks so much !!!

I like what this one offers. Solid construction, attractive & easy to read dial with slim sword hands and a decent movement. Looks good on that solid link bracelet too.
I think they've done well

It's cool right Steve?! 😀 What's nice is how they kept an overall traditional
feel going with the watch. However, were able make something that can
stand out without going too overboard, or anything. Giving you the spirit
of a classic pilot's watch with a modern day twist. 🙂😎

Glad you liked it so much sir, and thanks a ton for your two cents !!
