Many of the variants only have a generic base metal caseback:

Holy shit Dorks. I wasn't expecting the Invicta name on the dial? :o

Given that these are quick-and-dirty airbrushed renderings from stolen images, what actually shows up may not bear any resemblence whatsoever...

^^I tend to agree with dorks but if these turn out to be unbranded/stripped down actual Invictas it's going to be very interesting.

I bet $1 that it is the exact shit the shlophq sells. It is probably them running the site selling off all of the leftovers.

@Dorks I guess we'll have to see once Koi gets the one he ordered.

Hey Kev, this might give you some indication of the level of quality that awaits. Not necessarily the same manufacturer, but there's probably only so much you can do at the real bottom end:

I wanted to watch the unboxing video, but in a 6 min video he spends a full 3 min on the fucking address label. I realize that it's far more interesting than the watch, but I don't have that kind of attention span.

The crown was actually in the packaging ?

Definitely a knockoff

The crown fell off as he was taking it out of the bag, so it's definitely an Invicta.

Seriously though, the bracelet and clasp are all wrong and the subdials appear to be cosmetic rather than functional (again, hallmarks of true Invicta performance), but what you are getting is not what is pictured on the website, other than general dial and case appearance. The bracelet in the video is generic flimsy Chinese shit that you get on $15 pieces. The caseback is all wrong too. Just a knockoff as expected.

True, but for the geeks, it's all about the "look". And looks wise, if you do not inspect too closely, these would fit the bill. Instead of hundred buck value pays, they could actually buy the watch immediately. And it's not like the customer service could be any worse.
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

Yep. A far better buy, and at 10 paces.

The 5-star review in above link made me chuckle;
"Amazing mens watch
Excelent looking mens watch, it just looks amazing, all my friends think it's more expensive then it is, just great."


I bet he has also discussed watches with Douchebags at a particular Chicago steakhouse.

You could pretty much tell they weren't real Venoms. Even the chrono pushers look non functional. Hell, even the tighteners for the pushers look fake. Stiil, there are geeks that might go for the look alone.
