Hey everyone, have you heard of Signum Watch?

They are the creation of Stratton Watch Company’s very own
Kyle Schut. With their first watch, called the Cuda Diver actually
coming with both 40, and 44mm case sizes. In addition, you
have details like 200M WR, sapphire crystals, ceramic bezels,
abalone, meteorite, full lume, and pearl dials with SLN coated
hands, and markers, and stainless steel bracelets. With the
movements being either Seiko NH35, or NH38 inside.

Some pics for you...



















W&W, and Signum with even more...

😄 😀 Man, Mrs. Wiggles, had thought I might be showing one you hadn't seen
before, or known about. 😄 Had seen these a little while ago. But it was right
around the time you got your abalone Deep Blue, and didn't want to temp you
in any way. But it seems you already knew about them. 😉

They really do seem nice, and how about that abalone? Seems to be on par
with the Deep Blue right? Then the different meteorite options, and MOP are
pretty fantastic too. Really does seem like a great first effort like the video
says sir. 🙂

Thank you so much just for looking, and also for posting up this video !!!

😄🙂Maybe if it we even a little more reasonable price wise sir. 😊

I'm a bang for your buck guy just like you. Maybe more of an extreme
bang for the buck kind of guy actually. $300 is good, but it could be
better MW. 😁 It's funny, I do a lot of watch reporting, but honestly
not very much watch buying sir. At least these videos like you posted,
and like you actually do yourself, show how nice watches like these
are. 😉

These are some nice watches with plenty of features for the money. But I can't help but point out that Invicta has been offering the same dials and movement for half the price for over ten years. And they do it with their own case designs. With a variety of hand sets, markers and bezels.
It is quite obvious that Signum, Stratton, whatever have gone with the SKX007 case copy here. Drilled the lugs and added a very thin ceramic "insert" to the bezel and did a decent job with the lume that nobody ever uses. Because if you did, you would buy Tritium.
I have several Invicta diver's with Abalone and NH35's and even one Meteorite. I get more compliments on them then any other watches I have. Didn't pay more than $150 for any of them except the Meteorite. The only difference you'll find is that Invicta takes the time to machine their bezels out of stainless steel with a pip at 12 o'clock. Because all you really need in a diver is a well lumed pip and minute hand right ??? Not a cheap ceramic ring that breaks on on it's first impact.

In many cases Invicta offer good value for money, I know because I have owned several. What I haven't found is a good bracelet, sapphire crystal, and a decent lume.

Really can't disagree with anything you said here MW. 😉🙂You really hit it
out of the park in every respect. I guess the only way, or reason the Cuda,
or any of Signums watches might be more expensive possibly. Would be
the amount of watches they make in comparison to Invicta.

Am guessing Invicta can give you, or us a better deal because of their large
amount of watches. Whereas Signum is at such a small fraction of the amount
that they have to pay more for everything, and then we do to. But can imagine
that in a head to head battle watches from both companies would be incredibly
close in quality like you are saying.

Some excellent points as usual sir ! Thanks so much !!!

All I'm gonna say here is pictures are worth a thousand words. You're wrong dude. BTW, Invicta's come with Flame Fusion crystals which I have never scratched over normal use in 20 years.

That is a decent looking Invicta, and I must point out I am not an Invicta basher. In actual fact they are few and far between in the UK, and most people haven't even heard of them here. I have owned a Speedway, a quartz pro-diver, two automatic pro-divers, and one that vaguely resembled an omega. I didn't have an issue with any of them, and consider they are decent value for money. The bracelets on the ones I owned all had hollow end links and pressed clasps, but the bezels were prity decent. Still convinced about flame fusioned mineral glass though, but I suppose if your careful it doesn't matter.
