I am a novice watch and clock collector and I love my invictas of which I have 3( sea hunter sw200, SAN3 sw200, quinotaur eta6498 ). I am one of the lucky ones that have never had to go thru Invictas warranty center nor had any issues because I don't wear them much but more handle from time to time. I have 9 other mechanical watches in the 3 to 8 hundred range but the Invicta watches are just as awesome to look and feel. Other than their customer service, I don't get it! Are fit & finish really inferior to 2k watches that use similar movements? I always hear with Invictas, to not spend more than $200. But the 3 watches I have combined spent $1500. I feel is worth the price.
