    It's easy to bash Invicta?

    Invicta (meaning undefeated or unconquered) was used in Roma invicta meaning "Unconquered Rome".

    I don't own any so I'm ignorant to the brand.

    Is this just the 'bash brand' of choice or is there justice in the incessant bad rap they get?

    I'm sure much of the dissing is tongue in cheek but for the low price points they surely have some value?

    I get the impression that the sales techniques in the States leave a bad taste in the mouth?

    In my experience with Invicta you get what you pay for. I paid about $300 for a 4469 with a Sellita movement and it was very nice. My Dad has gone through about 3 Invictas that cost $50 or less. One one the second hand came off, on another the pin that holds the bracelet down broke another kept eating batteries until the movement died.

    That plus the ones we see at the mall are huge and a little ugly.

    Their sales tactics, claimed history, poor customer service and styling on some watches are all big turnoffs. But some of their watch seem well enough made.

    I've briefly considered buying most brands, from Rotary to Rolex. Never for a second considered Invicta. They're off the map.

    Yes I know this..but it usually decends into slagging matches elsewhere and I wanted to gauge IWLs members thoughts on this, partially because I figured we may be able to discuss it rationally on here
