A looker, stylish, and classy!
On the first day of wearing it, I had a number of people look and ask about it. "Nice watch." "How much is it?" "What kind is it?" "Where can I get it?" I got comments from women and men! Even after I told them what brand and how much I got it for, they still took 2-5 mins closely examining it! Too bad, my father liked it so much he asked for it the next day. This watch is very stylish. It has an elegant, stylish, classy, rich look to it that you might not expect from a thick, large watch, even if you have chicken sized wrist like me. It is heavy, but this heaviness is more of the "solid feel" heavy, not an overbearing heavy. I have a Tag, Movado, Omega, Citizen, ESQ, but I think this is the best watch to wear in most occassions if I didn't have time to come home and switch watches to go to an event. I think I'll order another one.

Looks competes with Rolex Daytona
By Charles R. Carroll
I own this watch.
If you do a web search for the Rolex Daytona and you look at a close up picture of it side by side with the Invicta Speedway you may find as I that the Invicta looks every bit as nice and some may even think better.
While all functions on the Speedway work as described, they are not the same as the Daytona and the fact is the Daytona would be the better watch for timing purposes. However, if that was really an issue with me I would want something larger (hand held) and most likely I would prefer a digital read out. And of course you have to remember the Speedway here is $129 and not $8K plus!
The watch has run flawless for me and it looks much, much better than pictured. It is rather large but I like the size and feel. I have an average wrist size and in fact had to remove 3 links and still feel the watch looks nice and is not to large for my arm.
The gold plating is very highly polished and my only concern is, as it is plating and not solid gold, will that be a problem down the road. For that reason I do not wear the watch every day or when I think I would be doing something that would be hard on any of my jewelry. However, if I had the Rolex I would not be wearing it while working with my hands either. For that matter, I have a timex for that reason. As you can not see through plating, this looks every bit as good as solid gold. If this is an issue for you, you may want to look at the all stainless version of this watch.
This is my third Invicta and I purchased a forth for my wife. All have been trouble free.
At this price I am very happy with my purchase and have no second thoughts about it at all. Every time I have it on I get comments on the watch. I rate this watch at 4.5 stars with the only one draw back that keeps it from getting 5 stars. The product (tritenite) Invicta uses to illuminate in the dark dims rather quickly. This is the case with all Invicta watches as to date and I always take off a half to full point for that reason alone. This may not be an issue for you at all.
Bottom line it is a fabulous looking time piece. It looks every bit as good as the Rolex that cost thousands and it has a very, very modest price. I have no second thoughts about this purchase.

Don't Even Think About It! Pull That Trigger...
By J. Inman
Charles Carrol posted the most useful review that you will probably need on this watch in October '07. I can only try to tack on a bit. He also posted several of the customer pictures of this watch. Thanks, Charles. I'm guessing you're a potential friend over at [...]. There are only a couple of things updated or important to note: 1) the listing here says the watch is a 39 mm case design. I checked the Invicta web site and the model listed is 44 mm; the one I received was the smaller one, unfortunately. This is a very popular size, for an older watch, but by today's standards looks small. Maybe you'll get lucky and get the larger one? 2) The price has fluctuated, but right now, it is about $70.00 (but worth more than that; honest). Run, do not walk to get your credit card information. ShopNBC and World of Watches, etc. have never beat that price to my knowledge. 3) The Japanese Myiota movement, made directly and distributed by Seiko Watch Corp., is very accurate and conserves the battery juice. Were this watch a Swiss movement it would be several times the price, but the basic watch functions would not be better. As Charles also said, the Chrono is OK, but it is probably not for someone who lives to hit the drag strip or racetrack every weekend. There are 1/10th second chronos out there in the $100.00 range much more accurate or time critical. Most of us will probably never really use the Chrono, but it looks cool. 4) The gold plating is Invicta's 23 karat Swiss certified/patented method and is guaranteed not to chip, crack, fade or peel during the warranty period. Eyal Laylo, the Invicta Company President, has scratched these gold plated watches with a sharp knife (with a lot of effort) just to demonstrate the gold color is under the scratches! It is fused into the stainless steel. Depending on the age of the watch that ships to you, you might get an upgraded watch crystal. The watch crystal now is "Flame Fusion" which is a mineral crystal (glass) fused chemically/melted together with the sapphire instead of just having a sapphire layer or just a hardened crystal that scratches easy-er. This is supposed to provide a clear, glare-free, tough, scratch resistant surface for your crystal that won't peel off or give you problems. If you get an older model, it might be just hardened crystal.
This watch looks every bit the Rolex Daytona part it was carved out to resemble. It looks sharp, does what it is supposed to do with style and is priced like a "beater" watch right now. You won't regret this purchase, and gifting it will make even a watch geek smile! Even though I have more watches than I can now count, I added this one as a must have to any collection; especially at this price.
