INVICTA HYDROMAX Exploration_deepsea_challenge_0012_1680x1070

clearly there is a minor huge difference in specification between the 2, the most obvious being depth rating Invicta 1000m, Rolex 12,000m  Shocked  incredible
apart from the obvious, i think Invicta have produced an acceptable Homage and not really a copy as there is enough difference between the 2 IMO

The Invicta is an absolute beast of a watch and despite its size looks incredible IMO, but what stands out for me is the build quality, this is no cheap gimmicky copy, but a full fledged proper dive watch, the build quality is absolutely amazing from the bezel to the screw down crown
Now......will i wear it ? nope not a chance  Very Happy  maybe if i was 8 foot tall and 50 stone i may get away with it, but it certainly has a well earned space in my collection.............i may wear it if i ever go to a fancy dress as a deep sea diver though Very Happy

That is certainly a chunky monkey watch It is HUGE . Do I like it ...... Yup in a way I guess I do . it is a bit on the too big scale for me but it has a certain appeal , I like how the chapter ring is angled which means that the watch does not require a huge dial . I can see why you bought it and it certainly fits in well with your collection.

diverting slightly off topic just a little I think it would be good if you could post some of the photos into the " Fence Post Studio" section as this watch deserves a place in that section.
