Because of the skill and precision it takes to craft a fine timepiece, it can be hard, if not impossible, to find a high-quality watch that’s affordably priced. Also, watches have become much more of a status symbol than a necessity, so many companies focus on higher-end, luxury models. Fortunately, this is not Invicta's primary business strategy.
Invicta, which means “invincible,” has been manufacturing quality Swiss watches since 1837. The result is a superb watch that, judging by appearances, may be tough to distinguish from a luxury brand, yet it is affordably priced.
Considering the various collections and collaborations, there is an overwhelming selection of men's Invicta watches available. To help you narrow your choices so you can pinpoint the one that’s best for you, we've put together the following guide, including some of our favorites.
Since the purpose of a men's watch is to accurately keep and display time, you want to pay attention to the movement. There are three types: mechanical, automatic, and quartz.
Mechanical: These watches function via a spring-driven mechanism that powers oscillating gears. You must wind this type of Invicta watch daily to keep it functioning properly.
Automatic: These watches function similarly to mechanical watches, only the wearer's natural motions are used to wind the watch. If you aren’t very active, it’s possible that you will need to wind an automatic watch.
Quartz: When you apply voltage to quartz, it vibrates at an extremely precise frequency. This vibration is used to power some men's Invicta watches. It’s very easy to tell if you have a quartz watch because the second hand ticks. The second hand glides smoothly in a watch with a mechanical or automatic mechanism.
At least once each day, wipe off your men's Invicta watch to remove any moisture, sweat, or dirt.
The following are some other features worth considering before purchasing a men's Invicta watch.
Men's Invicta watches are available in materials ranging from stainless steel to titanium. Other options are gold, ceramic, polycarbonate, tungsten carbide, and electroplated metal. Choose the watch that is not only the most aesthetically pleasing to you but is also manufactured using materials that are suitable for your lifestyle. Most men’s Invicta watches cost about $100, with some priced over $1,000.
Men's Invicta watches have a water-resistance rating that indicates they are able to endure an occasional splash, hold up while several hundred feet underwater, or something in between. Pick the model that most accurately suits your lifestyle.
Men's Invicta watches offer a wide variety of clasp options ranging from a common buckle to a seamless hidden clasp. If you lead an active lifestyle, look for a clasp with a safety to keep your watch from unintentionally popping open during vigorous activity.
Many men's Invicta watches feature auxiliary dials along with multiple buttons. These models offer additional functionality that may include tracking multiple time zones, a calendar, or a stopwatch. If these extras are of interest to you, be sure the model that you’re considering includes them.
From celebrities to Star Wars, there is a vast assortment of specialty men's Invicta watches that are tailored to individual tastes. For example, if you’re a Marvel comics fan, you can get a Captain America watch. Some of the specialty collaboration models cost about $200 or $300.
A. Although the frequency of service depends on the environment and how well you care for it, as a rule of thumb, inspect the watch whenever you replace the battery, roughly every couple years.
A. The instructions that come with your men's Invicta watch will detail how water resistant it is. It’s important to make certain the crown (winding knob) isn’t pulled out while your watch is wet, and never place the watch under running water. Also, over time, the watch's resistance to water will diminish, so greater care must be exercised when wearing an older watch in or near water. Because of this, it’s a good idea to have the water-resistance of your watch periodically checked.
A. Yes. Exposing your Invicta watch to extreme temperatures — hot or cold — could have a negative impact on the watch's precision. As may be expected, dropping your watch on a hard surface could damage the internal mechanism. And be careful about placing your Invicta watch near any type of magnetic field, including speakers, smartphones, or a magnetic bracelet, because this could cause your watch to gain or lose time.
