Just saw pics of the new models from Invicta - the Ocean Hawk, Sea Thunder and the Sea Mount. I know the names are kind of corny but I do actually dig the styles and the sizes. What do the rest of the Freeks think of these models?

I think some of them have potential. Once they post the pics on ShopNBC I will try to post here. Do you have the J numbers yet Mikey?

I think the watches are pretty cool but I'd rather Eyal spend less time dreaming up new watches so OUR new watches could stop depreciating upon being loaded on the UPS truck.

I think they look great! Don't plan to buy all of them, but maybe one or two. Just the same, Invicta leads the way in design variations. Something for everyone. Ya just can't beat it.

Now the new Imperious line? WOW!! (I'm guessing that Invicta owns them as well. JMO )

To be honest, they don't really do much for me. I saw them all and there's nothing that really stands out so far. Oh well, maybe next time!

Need more exposure, first glance did not excite me but agree there is potential.
Just getting tired of all the quartz pieces.:(

Well in my opinion, I think the Sea Mount looks like it has a plastic bezel and dial. It looks cheap.

Regardless of what the bezel and dial are made of, if other's that see it on your wrist also think it is plastic, well it looks cheap.



I like the Reserve Ocean Hawk a little better but I don't much like, or it hasn't grown on me yet, the square texture dial.



I like this third model, Sea Thunder,maybe in a silvertone no IP, also maybe on a bracelet. I not that big of a rubber fan, not opposed to it, just prefer a bracelet.

Not overly impressed yet. Would like to see them live first but still won't buy new from shop as will be able to grab one probably later at 50% off or more.....LOL.

I'm sorry to say this, but it seems like Invicta watches are looking cheaper and cheaper. They have even said themselves that they are building them cheaper ie. movements, crystals etc. I have no interest in Invicta anymore. I have moved on to other companies that still believe in a quality built timepieces. This by no means is meant to cause insult or injury to those that still love their designs. I own 13 Invictas and my wife owns 2, but that is enough for us.

When Invicta decides to get back into the real "Reserve Line" again and they can produce a watch that is built to their previous "Reserve" standards then I may be interested again. Just my 2 cents.

Rob, I am very close to where to where you are. I do enjoy and appreciate the Invicta pieces that I currently own and do not see me parting with them. That being said, I notice that I am less and less enthused about Invicta and spend far less time looking at or researching them. I agree that many (and I mean many) shortcuts are being taken for the sake of volume. I agree that the earlier philosophy behind the Reserve collection has been abandoned and more and more long time Invicta enthusiasts are coming to the same conclusion (see the post Invicta Enthusiasts Evolution). At the same time I think it's important to also qualify my loss of interest with Invicta as a direct result of my increasing interest in other brands and designs exposed to me by members of the Freek Dome!!:b

So in the end I may be losing interest in one brand but have gained interest in at least 10 new ones (new to me, that is).
This is not helping with my fiscal responsibilities...LOL.

I thought that one I saw looked cool (had an auto movement).

Otherwise, nothing interested me.

I'm looking for a few models that are already out, then I think I'm done with Invicta for a while.
