As usual, I'm browsing the "bay" and keep coming across this watch company that I guess is based in Germany. They are called Convicta. The watches are actually pretty nice looking, big in size ranging from 38-46.6mm and the prices seem to be pretty good as well, about $125US shipped.

Does anyone have one of these or know anything about this company?

I might be interested in trying one out in the not so distant future just for the heck of it. ;-)

Thanks!

I have also seen them on the bay-they are cool looking but I think they are Germasian. There are not a lot of sellers but they are neat looking and at the right price they should be OK. You should buy one and let us know ;-)

The movements listed are Citizen-Miytoa [i.e. 0S 20] so at the very least you have a solid, well known, engine running the show. They are quite striking to look at...obviously 'homage' pieces [borrowed style from the Tissot T-Race, and Bell & Ross BR-1 etc etc] but there are several companies doing that. I've seen watches with similar movements for a little less...but that being said Convictas cases, bracelets, and straps may be well polished and well made.

Personally I would call this a pretty decent find!

If they had that GMT diver in all stainless steel, I'd buy one since they're so cheap. I just can't see myself with the gold.

Hi -

Nope. While the spelling is off - Konvikta would be grammatically correct - the result is the same: it sounds like something made in jail.

Which it actually might be. Bleagh. I dislike Germasians.

yes !!! i bought one from amazon, beautiful watch good time keeper and best of all it only cost £49.00
just one downside, it came with a white leather strap, so i bought a gold plated gents strap, it now looks a
really expensive watch. get quite a few complements about it. i have 3 citizen eco watches which i always
wore, although the convicta watch is cheap compared to the citizens, i like the convicta better.
