They need to fire their "Swiss" watchmakers who apply the hands as they are obviously drunk on the job.

I understand it was quite a hassle getting that homeless guy to shave his beard before they threw on the branded lab coat and faux loupe. But it was worth those 3 bottles of Brass Monkey because that shot looks legit, yo!

I wonder how much that one-off Invicta lab coat cost them?

EDIT: NVM- the way they do things, it's probably just a cheap dickie.

I'm sure that Eyal's got quite a few cheap dickies working for him.

Frankly, I believe every photo and claim in that photo collage - but as you know, Eyal Lalo is not only a master at sporting tight polo shirts, but at effective cost cutting at well. Seeing no need for "Swiss craftsmen" in order to fashion a great "Swiss-made" watch, he now has Jill Sommerstein yodel "LIttle Rabbit In His Burrow" to harried, hair-netted workers during his bi-yearly visits to his "Inivicta Swiss Factories" in Macau. It's all in the name of delivering the best Sea Spiders yet - many now available on six interest free payments!

Haters. Only a legitimate, big time company like Invicta can afford the rights to 12 - count 'em - stock photographs in one advertisement. Hoo-ee!
