I am considering getting this watch, is there anyone that can fill me in on the fit and finish? How do you like it?

Invicta offered the exact same case, movement and strap design in a number of different dials and under a number of different names. The movement is, if memory serves, a Swiss Ronda.

About a year ago, it was called the S1 Chronograph and offered as an OTV on "Shop". I own one and it is a beautifully finished quartz-o-graph. Approximately 44 or 45 MM, the bezel and strap compliment the dial. The bracelet is adjustable by removing links and then fine-tuning the pins on the diver-clasp; a perfect fit. The OTV came with an additional rubber strap and some neat packaging touches to compliment the automotive theme of the watch.

The chronograph offers a 10-hour ET and the watch has been extremely accurate. Somewhere between a "beater" and a more serious addition to your collection, I think it is a very nicely made timepiece for the price. I paid well under $150 when it was an OTV, but anywhere under $220 or so would be a good deal.

What NAYTH said. Really liked mine and women seemed to notice it a lot.
Sold it off in the Great Chrono Reduction Sale but wouldnt hesitate to recommend it.

2 things I DIDNT like was the hands are sometimes hard to see in certain light but then again we dont wear a watch to tell time, do we? Blue or black face might make them easier to see.
No screw down crown either, a minor thing unless you want to get it wet but then again, we dont get our watches wet, do we?

I have it with the black dial and love it. I got it for 89 bucks from woot.com and it is what caused me to get addicted.
