Davosa is the hands-down winner!

I have the Invicta and it's nothing to write home about. Accuracy can be described as "adequate" and nothing more. Besides, there are the horror stories about Invicta's customer service department.

Sandoz relies on it's previous incarnation's fame (the heirs of Henri Sandoz sold it in 1971). It is now just another Oriental company making watches with someone else's watch movts./modules. From what I've seen, I think they are quite over-priced.

They all look the same IMHO go with the Sandoz it has a steel bracelet. Take the bracelet off and buy a black leather band and if you ever want to sell you have a Like New Watch.:wink:

He just said it has a steel bracelet...not that it has a good steel bracelet! My Seiko 5 has a steel bracelet that feels and sounds more like tin.

go with the davosa. sandoz watches are a little shady with respect to the authenticity of the movement--the same watch comes in two varieties where one model is made in hong kong one model is made in singapore and both claim to be eta. pretty doubtful at that. the band on the sandoz is flimsy--your run of the mill ebay $20 band is probably equally good. the davosa as i understand has real eta movements. invicta is ok.

Davosa in a heartbeat :thumbup1:
I agree with the skepticism about Sandoz, and if I never see another low end Invicta it'll be to soon - they just scream "home shopping network" to me!
