I have a small Invicta collection and I've had positive experience with the brand. Anyway...this Invicta Specialty arrived today and I'm very pleased with it. As an eclectic buyer,I buy what speaks to me and this model caught my eye. It arrived with the correct time already set and the temp outside was only 5 F. so I was surprised that the cold temp outside had no ill effect on accuracy. I bought this item NIB and it was nice that the dealer took the time to set the watch for me.



Thanks for viewing and have a great weekend...:smile-thumb2:

I like the look
I've always wondered what flame infused means

Anyone care to tell me. Sounds like advertising

But It's a real looker in styling

Congrats

You mean the "flame fusion crystal" ?

Marketing word for sapphire coated mineral.

Howard:
Veteran of Invicta's vast right wing conspiracy (lol) to sell everyone on the
planet a watch (or 2 or 3).
I owned an 8926 with a hard to get white dial. Gifted it to a buddy.
Then afterwards I learned the 8926 NH35 engine was made for Invicta by
Seiko's S11 manufactury. In truth it's the clone of the Seiko 4R36 movement.
Both hack. Both can be hand wound.
Wish I had that one back. In Texas there is a saying "Don't be an Indian
giver (wanting a gift back nuther words)
Only observable difference I see is the 8926 rotor now has a yellow color.
4R36 remains the same.

Good luck with your Invicta Howard.
