On the Invicta website is a countdown clock to the Daker rally. Here is a description of the race. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakar_Rally

It appears as if the Lalo is a corporate sponsor. A bigger question is whether there will be a new watch to commemorate the event? Any theories?

Having actually competed in a couple of historic rallies (nothing like the Dakar, of course) I would love to see some sort of commemorative. It would be of more interest to me than a diver or flight navigator.

Here is the list of Sponsors. No Invicta.

The only tie I have found with Invicta. About $200.00 Just another "affiliation" by hijacking IMO.

Photo is stock invicta.




Model: Chronozone Dakar
Case material: 316L surgical grade stainless steel
Case dimensions: 41mm in width, 56mm in height or length
Movement: Quartz movement
Crystal type: Scratch resistant mineral crystal
Crown and/or pushers: Push and pull crown, crown and pushers are located at the top and bottom of the case
Water resistant: 100 meters Chronograph: Chronograph function on the main subdial

One site described it as "Horror-logical - Multi-function Monsters

Invicta Chronozone Dakar



Ok, if R2D2 and a tropical parrot made love, you might get this horror-ogolical concoction called the Chronozone Dakar by Invicta."

My suspicion is they are not an event sponsor, but that they are a partial sponsor of one of the participating teams. Not certain though.........

And that watch is an abomination IMO.

Ah yes, lightman. Now I remember. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a commemorative something or other made available to us, the Lalo's adoring fans.
