Sweet jeebus...166 Invictas

Postby Luftwafflles » December 28th 2012, 8:08am

One of the geeks just posted a photo of his "collection". I counted 166 watches. Many of them models costing $500-$1200. This guy has spent, at least $50,000 on Invictas. When you guys said this was a mental illness, I thought you were half kidding. You were spot on. Good Lord, what an incredible waste of money.
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

I love stuff like this. Guy spends 50 large on watch that have no actual real world value whatsoever.

Fools and their money.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit

They should make a TV show on them hoarders, the only bad thing will be free advertisement for Inshita.

He does better throwing his money out the window, at least someone more worthy than A-Low benefits with that $50K.

Exactly. A lesson I've learned over the years is that when I purchase a reputable brand in good used condition, I can flip it for the same price or close to it if I find I don't enjoy it as much over time. You cannot say the same for TV brands.

The point I'm trying to make exactly. Good heavens, even a 20-year-old quartz Hamilton has real world market value. Think anyone is gonna covet a fucking Sea Spider even three years from now?

...and, to add insult to injury, Invicter discontinues parts for models after 3 years.

It looks like my old Matchbox car collection. Fools and their money indeed.

Could not agree more. This is the most important lesson I have learned since joining this forum.

You could probably by the 50k worth of watches now for $2500 from DoD sites or the famous Invicta Runs!!

Oh and not only that, but he added this abortion to his collection:

I've stared at that watch for almost a minute and I can't see the other hand. Maybe it's hidden behind the other one, but how could you tell the time quickly??

Come on Docklock, you should know by now that it's not about telling the time quickly or even telling the time at all. It's all about impressing friends and people you don't know.

Foolish morsel! Who uses watches to tell time? That's what cellphones are for. This is all about DA BLING! Playing oneupsmanship versus the other denizens of the trailer park. Shinier is always better.
