A quick search found them only on ShopNBC and a few internet sites, including the Bay. Sounds like another internet brand from what I can find out.

Hope this helps.. Yes Invicta bought what was left of there stock and have started using the design in several new watches ie he Prowler. If you can find one of the original you will be hard pressed to find a better watch.

Hmm...it is an interesting watch. For $300 more you can get a 7751 valjoux watch kit from ofrei.com. Of course that would actually require you to assemble it...which could be fun...or expensiveB-) . Funny how I keep coming up with different options for an upcoming gift:) . Anyway, to get back on track, does the bezel rotate? It looks like it may, but I can't be certain.

edit-->I just discovered that shopnbc has an ebay presence, and that they sold a demo for under $400.

No rotating bezel, and like the man said if you can find one grab it. I have to give it a nine just for being different. Great pushers and a dial that is easy to read, A 7750 at 100M how can you go wrong.

If you have ever been through an earthquake, you know how "so what?" this story is. Anything that small can easily go unscathed in one of many pockets created by piles of debris. You notice that it doesn't say that the watch was actually touched by debris? That's because it was fortunate enough to be in a protected pocket under the debris.

Pure and simple, it's a marketing gimmick.

Agreed. Still a good looking watch.
Worth the price is up to the purchaser as in all things.

I think we all know that. Just like many . It is a well built watch with a good movement, I just posted the info for those that have not seen there ads. I have lived in California most of my life so I surely know what shaky ground is. Pretty much a null point as no one is going to find one to buy unless they find a used one or a demo from Slop. But thanks for filling me in ;-)

I'm more concerned about the fact that the only practicality of a watch that could survive an earthquake is that it provides an alternative to dental records.

I'm picking up what you're throwing down.

All I can say is I've had mine for many years now, and I love it. Built like a tank and it looks great, unfortunately Invicta bought the company and turned it into the prowler. Also, I agree, your not going to be buying one anytime soon as I don't think anyone who has one is going to get rid of it. Just my humble opinion
