There's something funny going on
on 30 December 2012
There's something funny going on. Amazon's advertisements claim that these watches retail at approximately £350. However, if you search online, you will find that a lot of Invicta watches are currently being sold for around £50-£100. Apparently I bought what I thought was a 'Swiss watch' which was actually made in Japan. Apparently I paid only 20% of its normal retail price. However, I look online elsewhere and discover Invicta watches being heavily discounted. There is something funny going on.
Either I've got a real bargain, or I may have been misled. I am confused.
For all that, I got the watch and it looks beautiful. Be warned, this model is huge, it's like you got a wall clock lashed to your wrist. The clock face is maybe a touch too gaudy for my taste, but when you are paying £50 for a £350 watch, what you gonna do? The leather strap looks very classy indeed, like it is hand stitched, and the overall finish of the chromework makes it look like an expensive watch. I am very pleased with what I got for £50. I think it was a bargain, although I fear the weight of the watch is gonna make one arm longer than the other if I wear it for any length of time.
