Invicta Intrinsic 12470

Post by domecurb on Wed Mar 29 2017, 15:31

Intrinsic 12470 by Invicta, Swiss ISA 9516/3030 Quartz, 200 meter water resistance, screw down pushers, Lumi bright dial, negative digital display showing alarm, day/date, chronograph and second time zone. 48mm wide including the crown and 17mm deep
access to the digital functions are gained via a single short push on the crown and controlled/adjusted by the pushers, the display can also be turned off if required, the time is changed via a long push on the crown, the hands can then be synchronised with the second hand and the time adjusted in quarter minute jumps by a small turn of the crown, rotating the crown speeds up the hand movement for quick setting and then stopped by briefly reversing the crown direction, as you may have noticed it doesn't have a screw down crown which would seem like a weakness on a 200m dive watch but this is a complicated crown system with 4 diamond profiled "o" rings for water protection...
there are 2 things on this watch i don't normally go for and they are white dials and Mercedes hands............the hands are gloss black with white infill so different enough to appeal to me and the white dial is so bright clean and fresh looking and easy to read day and night so again for me forgiveable, the gadget and fiddle value is high on this one:D

I havent seen one of these before and I will say it is very nice . Yup the hands are horrid but that too is one of my pet hates the Mercedes style hands but I really like the white dial . Another plus is the fact it is a negative display so does not stand out too much.

That's very nice. I really like dual display watches and this one works well with the clinical white dial. I also quite like the Mercedes hands as they don't dominate the dial with the sub second section and LCD display all needing their own space. Very Happy

What's the feeling with this one then, a keeper, a possible mod or something to try / enjoy now that may be parted with in the future, or is the jury still out?

Glad it's likely to be a keeper, it's got good company with your Invicta grand diver 2. Very Happy

I thought we already had our summer on Monday afternoon when the sun came out for a couple of hours. Nice to hear that there might be more to come. lol!

Wow that is a brilliant lume . If you got lost in a crowd you could simply put your hand up in the air and be found straight away.

I quite like it, including the hands. Is it huge to wear, how does it compare to a SKX007?

i dont find it huge to wear, but it is bigger than the 007, the lugs are a lot longer and its a lot thicker too, but i find it very comfortable
