Invicta watches were resurrected in the early 2000's and are very popular. The two I am going to write about are the some of the most popular models I see coming in our shop. The company is based in Hollywood, FL and was originally a Swiss based company founded in 1837. They almost disappeared in the 70's due to the popularity of quartz watches like Timex and Casio. Invicta was eventually purchased in 1991 by an investment company. This is kind of ironic since the name Invicta means invincible.
This is my personal opinion on this brand. Invicta is sourcing their manufacturing out to Asia and some are still made in Switzerland. They are sold at Sam's club, HSN,QVC and other channels. This particular brand has very little resale value due to so many are made and the parts are cheaply made. We will take these in for a buy or a Pawn loan but do your research using sites like Ebay's completed listings. Typically I see a watch that costs $300 in retail stores selling new for less than $100 with tags on Ebay.
Invicta Pro Diver
This is the top selling model for Invicta. It reminds me of a Submariner by Rolex but just does not hold its value. They are water resistant up to 660 feet depending on the model. The hands are luminous which is ideal when you are underwater. The bands and color combinations are many. They include three sub dials and a magnified date window. It has Japanese movement which is considered second tier to Swiss. Overall this model has a nice appearance and can be worn for many different occasions. We offer Pawn Loans/Asset Loans on this model.
Subaqua Noma Swiss V chronograph stainless steel
This model stands out more than the others and has Swiss movement which makes the watch more valuable. The crystal is flame fusion. The face is light blue and the band is stainless steel. They are water resistant up to 500 meters. It has luminous hands and they are bright after charged. The color combinations are endless and they are stunning looking watches. I would consider owning this model or a variation of this one in a blue tone. Here at the shop we offer Asset Loans on this type of watch. We just don't lend much on them. Also understand most people use there phones rather than wearing a watch.
