Invicta offers a huge selection of big watches and affordable homage pieces. They have it all, from Swiss made to made in Japan, from quartz to automatic, even partnerships such as Disney and the NFL. The brand is expanding beyond watches with their own magazine publication and even a Casa Invicta hotel!
Invicta watches was originally started in 1837 by Raphael Picard in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The company went bankrupt in the 1980s and sold to a group called Ondix S.A. in 1983. Production at that point moved from La Chaud-de-Fonds to Bielle, Switzerland. However, that company also went bankrupt. The Invicta brand that we know today came from a buyout of the name in 1991. Currently based in Hollywood, FL, the brand is now known for popular watch lines such as Pro Diver, Russian Diver, Reserve, Lupah, Bolt, Akula, Speedway, Venom, Subaqua Noma, and more. Invicta became huge over the years thanks to countless appearances on TV home shopping channels like ShopNBC, ShopHQ and Evine. Later, they even started their own home stopping style series. The brand's ability to spawn new models so rapidly, combined with the shop from home with 5 easy payment plans, seems to almost create an addiction amongst fans of the brand. Many Invicta watch collectors proudly own dozens, if not hundreds of Invicta watches. Some collectors do not even take the watches out of the box when they arrive. Although many watch enthusiasts claim to hate the Invicta brand, the reality is that the brand is like a gateway drug for many collectors to become interested in watches.
Invicta means Invincible in latin. Invicta's tagline is "Invincible in Detail".
Over the years, the Invicta watch brand has been known to collaborate with some of the biggest names and brands in the world including: Jason Taylor, Marvel, DC Comics, Disney, Shaq, NFL, Star Wars, Beavis and Butt-Head, Southpark, and even the US Army and Navy.
Although many Invicta watch collectors are looking for brand new pieces, the harsh reality is that Invicta has thousands of models and they rarely keep making the same model forever. We specialize in pre-owned or rare display model Invicta watches because it gives serious collectors a chance to find the long lost model they have been searching for. Sometimes we're able to help a customer complete a collection with a special watch that has been discontinued for years. It's a great feeling to be able to be part of connecting the perfect watch with a new wrist. If you're looking for a rare Invicta watch that isn't available anymore, bookmark this page and check often. You never know what is going to pop up!
Invicta makes homage watches that are inspired by the designs of other major watch brands like Rolex, Omega, etc. The most well-known example is the Invicta Pro-Diver which looks almost identical to a Rolex Submariner from a distance. A Rolex Submariner will cost you over $10,000, but you can find an Invicta Pro-Diver automatic for under $100. Invicta is not trying to compete with Rolex, although we have customers who enjoying wearing both brands.
As discussed above, the Invicta watch company was founded in Switzerland over 100 years ago, until the 1980s, they were all Swiss made. Today, the current Invicta company produces watches with the Swiss Made label as well as Made in Japan. For example, Invicta has models powered by Swiss ETA caliber 2824-2 or Sellita caliber SW200-1 automatic movements, but it seems that a majority of their automatic timepieces are powered by the Seiko caliber NH35A (but they used to use more Miyota movements). As with many watch brands, despite the Swiss Made or Made in Japan label, this generally refers to the origin of the movement only. Most of the watch parts (case, dial, hands, bracelet, etc), most likely are made in China.
The answer depends on who you ask. We sell Invicta watches, so we'll try to answer an unbiased as possible. Let's just say there are just as many haters of the brand as there are serious collectors. Invicta produces so many watch models, ranging from $50 to $1,500. It's meant to be an affordable brand and many collectors feel more value in having 50 Invictas compared to just one watch from a luxury company for the same price. They use solid movements that you can research on your own. As for their rubber straps, we have seen issues with them disintegrating after several years, and depending on the style, replacements may not be available. Keep that in mind. Other than that, liking the look of a watch is what matters most. If you see an Invicta you like, go for it!
"Now known as the "master of case complication", Invicta has taken the meticulous art of case construction to new heights. Building each timepiece for the fierce of heart, the watches are an exemplary example of versatility, setting a precedent for braving the most adventurous or eloquent of activities." -Invicta
