My sweetie got me an Invicta model 2770 for Christmas!  I absolutely love it.  I showed it to her a long time ago and she remembered the exact model I wanted.  It's the least gaudy of all the Invictas and I think it's the best looking model they make. Wink

I like how the crown/pushers are on the opposite side…nice watch!

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Also got an Invicta for Christmas. Amazon was really pushing the budget models, too. I like this one but every time I shop for watches, the cases are bigger. I think this one is 45mm.

It doesn’t look too out of place with the nicer watches.

Soooo cool! Now I know where magnetic north is, and the temperature of my arm.

Hi guys! I’m a newbie here although I have been a lurker for many months. My first post will be about watches on a flashlight forum. Smile
This is a homage for G-Shock DW5000C. I normally rotate this with Seiko Sumo SBDC003.

Those Invictas look HUGE in size!
I have hard time finding decent priced mechanicals in 40mm or so.

LOL...those are the SMALL Invictas!  If you think they are big you should see the regular ones.  HUGE!

Nice one, I wanted solar one but ended up buying regular DW5600 given that solar costs quite more yet doesnt give that much difference as far as it concerns battery life questions.

I have a Casio dive model. The battery is supposed to last seven years. The first time it lasted longer than that, and I have changed it several more times, so it was probably made before most of you were born. Works fine, but I can’t remember some of its functions. The mechanical watches I used to have usually died from getting wet.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

Picked up a used 5.11 Field Ops Watch, got lucky it just needed a battery but also now needs a new o-ring. I get sweaty wearing regular watch bands so made a paracord band for it. No sweety wrist!

Great watch, the Ray is probably impossible to beat for the money, or anywhere close.

Yeah, I have seen pics of some “Russian Diver” invictas, 50mm or so. Insane!

I totally agree! Another hard to beat automatic watch is the Invicta 8926 Pro Diver

This is using the similar module as DW5600. The bezel and strap also interchangeable. The only special about this model is the screw back case just like the original first G-Shock (DW5000C).
