cheap by Invicta standards $195.00 and currently $59.95. Spit diamonds and no sandstone until proven otherwise, contrary to the below description.

OTV WTCH INVICTA CLASSIQUE QUARTZ SANDSTONE DIAL STAINLESS CASE/BRACELET WATCH
SILVERTONE
The blue sandstone dial utilizes round luminous Tritnite index markers with trimming that coordinates to your choice of bracelet. Hour and minute hands reveal Tritnite filling and are made to keep time under the guidance of a Swiss Parts ISA 638/101 Quartz movement.


About Sandstone

Precisely as the name implies, sandstone is created from sand. Sandstone rock is forged from little grains derived from feldspar and quartz. It sets in many places as it really just needs water to form. Varying in color from one area to another, it is an easy rock to split and carve. This quality makes it popular in the construction of pillars, fountains, fireplaces and as shown here, even timepieces. This sandstone is also enhanced with goldstone for a lustrous effect.

Sandstone value: Shit
Bremont Clone value: Shit

Have a nice day!


I'm sorry, but "shit" would imply that if you put it in your garden it would help your flowers grow, thus giving it some very small value.

I have to disagree with your appraisal. These are not worth shit.

I've been reading about these sandstone watches for a while now on this forum. This is the first time I have ever seen one anywhere. My God that thing is fucking horrendous looking. It looks like some shit you'd find in a rack on the counter at some Zippy Mart. Real sandstone and diamonds or not .... anybody that would buy that gawdy hunk of shit needs to be horsewhipped. Fuck that's ugly.

look at the photo of the Sandstone classic which shows the caseback. On the left hand side of the caseback it clearly states "Swiss Parts Movement"

I am not certain how anyone can honestly make the claim of "swiss Parts Movement" and even stamp it on the caseback. No where did it state Swiss on the movement and we looked.

"Swiss parts" indication

This marking indicates that the movement is composed of movement-blanks which have been manufactured in Switzerland, but assembled abroad. This indication may only appear on the movement, and never on the outside of the watch.
