AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL WATCH - BEAUTIFULLY PACKAGED
on 4 September 2013
This arrived from the US by Royal Mail on the 8th day with no customs duty or vat payable. On the outer box it said MSRP $495.00 and for what I received I can believe this. When I opened the package I was amazed at the expensive black painted wooden box. It was fastened with a metal clip - I was very excited - inside it was black felt - on the underside of the lid it said "Invicta Special Edition" and it had the iInvicta emblem above. Covering the contents was an oblong piece of sponge to protect the items in transit - When I removed it I could not get the watch out fast enough to try it on my wrist. It was exactly the size I was expecting. I have a small wrist and it fills most of the width of it. The leather straps are beautiful patent colours (red, grey, black, burgundy) as well the white already fitted to the watch. On the rear they say "Genuine Leather" They appear stiff to start but get supple with use, so I have managed to change from three holes from the end to two holes from the end. There are US videos on youtube showing you how to change the straps - which looks quite easy. The face of the watch is white mother of pearl and the heart looks like it is made of tiny crystals, the winder has a blue sapphire set into the end of it - The watch is a matte metal finish which shows off the watch face really well - I had to put the watch on a full 24 hours to correct the date - I like "nice" things but I can't believe what I have received for the price, and it has kept perfect time. This was an early Christmas present for me - and I am so happy with it I do not want anything else.
