Well, my second Invicta came in the mail today. It's a Swiss-made Times Square Automatic.

All I can say is "Wow!"

The watch is much bigger than I expected it to be, and quite hefty. I love the flip-open back which reveals the movement.

Some pics:

Some things I don't like:

Primarily, the strap. I think a brown croc would look amazing on this. I don't know if it'll be difficult or not to find, as the strap is quite wide (haven't measured it). Along with the new strap will be a deployment clasp, which I'm a big fan of.

The spring bars on this watch seem to be just an iota too short, as the strap comes undone pretty easily. I'll look into that during the week.

Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10, I'll give it an "8" right now, mainly because of the strap. It's really the only downside I see with it. The overall size will take some getting used to; it sits pretty high on the wrist but, honestly, I can see that happening pretty readily.

I found this one on eBay, bid up to $100.00, and got it for $99.00. This morning, I found two others on eBay. One was $319.00, and the other was $379.00.

I'm pretty happy with the deal I got...

Not my style (I don't like quadratic timepieces) but looks ok. The back looks cool, nice engraved. And great deal also, enjoy your new watch. :thumbup1:

Thanks!

It's not the style I normally wear but, for a hundred bucks, I figured I could afford to shake things up a bit...

The movement, visible with the case back open:




Not sure if the crystal is sapphire or not. Is there a way to tell?

For a Benjamin... that's a steal! I think I would have bought at that price for sure, since I've been wanting a square piece for a while now.

Does the water bead up on the crystal like it does on a freshly waxed car?
Thanks also for the extra shots. The lume looks great. I googled this model(Times Square) and mineral comes up as the type of crystal, but, not sure if that is true.

The Time Square is a beautiful, incredibly well-made, and as far as I know, a very unique watch. For a hundred bucks, you got a steal! Great pics.
