Welcome, Welcome, Welcome! ( a tribute to John Oliver) ("Last Week Tonight")

Tuesday sees the appearance of an old INVICTA reliable: their homage to the ROLEX EXPLORER II, with a fully adjustable, independent GMT hand. (Model # 9401) It's one of the beauties Invicta is able to produce (aside from their gigantic, ostentatious monsters for which are infamously known). I still marvel how the Brand is able to get away with copying Rolex originals (uh, NOT that I mind, as the household treasury can not purchase these high cost Rolex models). It looks great on the wrist, performs its GMT duty very accurately, has an improved date window cyclops and is an all-around rugged watch (after slamming it into several door frames and car doors today (klutzy days today.) Just a decent daily beater. (Uh, yes, there's a smudge on the crystal between 7 and 8. Used a polishing cloth but obviously MISSED a spot. Damn old eyes! Sorry. dave:

People hate on Invicta bc of many of the clownish watches that they release, but their homage pieces are actually pretty solid. I don't own one but I've watched plenty of reviews of them on YT and haven't really heard much bad about them. Just wish the brand would stay away from those wacky ass designs.

Nice, I looked for quite some time for that exact Invicta, but it is surprisingly hard to find. I kind of gave up looking, but now I am considering picking up a used Seiko SKX007 or 009 and modding it with 12-hour gray bezel, and Mercedes hands (Orange "seconds" hand). It's worth googling "SKX explorer 2". I think it looks pretty sharp!

Sharp looking Invicta. I get a lot of compliments on mine. It’s my beater.
