Ordered this watch.


Cancelled this one.


40 bucks cheaper, more skeletonized, would be my first mechanical and an Invicta owned movement. In addition to that, I don't have a strap with this color and I like gator straps. I'd like to have bought them both, but I'm trying to cut down on my deficit spending.

I like the other personally, how is it that the movement in the Gold is an Invicta only movement? I hope you enjoy it! Give PICS! :)

That's what I was thinking wilfreb. I'm thinking the top one uses the 8n24 Miyota but mebbie I'm wrong?

The top one is also 100m vs. 30m.

I think the company that makes the movement is Chinese (or was) and ,as the story goes, Invicta bought the Co. thus making it an Invicta owned movement.
There are many variations to this story and whether it's a Chinese,Japanese or Swiss movement,
Originally, in the first Invicta skeletons, it was of Chinese origin.

Mechanical Swiss Technica Ebauche 2149649 is the movement used by Invicta for this watch. Apparently the Co. was purchased by Invicta one of a few Companies bought by Invicta ex. S. Coifman, Activa, Brizo, Pastorelli, Potger-Pietri, and Cacciato-Joss. Technica From what I understand is the newest company that allows Invicta to own it's own movement (in-house movement) That is about as much as I know.

I may have kept the skeleton ghost if they had any more of the black. I've got a watch or two with the black strap and silver case.
Technica is definitely owned by Invicta and according to Eyal is a Swiss movement. He even went so far as to say that all the crap you hear about it being Chinese, is just that, crap, after I emailed Shawn Wilsie to ask him that question.
It doesn't make me a difference if it's Chinese or Swiss, but I do think it's cool that Invicta has grown so much it bought a movement company.

According to Jim Skelton's posts, the company is in Japan. He stated that elsewhere.

They may be using Swiss blanks as a starting point for the movements, but who knows.
