Latest Speedway Model For Proud Invicta Owners *UPDATED*

Post by Horse Feathers » October 9th 2011, 11:47am

The Speedway used to be one of their better watches

Now it houses a bottom of the barrel quartz movement and this very classy strap (I guess it will help this stand above the lowly Daytona and prevent onlookers from offering on the spot Rolex trades)

Nope! I tried and it sent up an error message. I was also told it could be up to 48 hours until approval. So I will check to see if it is approved.

If it's for proud Invicta owners only, it's not for me. Just the latest in a long line of failures as far as I am concerned. I don't think your review will make the cut Alain.

Good heavens, has that "brand" screwed the pooch.

But at least this ugly Rolex will sell unlike that ugly ass Invicta.


We are talking about aesthetics here buddy not resale value, or any other value for that matter and from that perspective alone , the Rolex is a the ugliest piece of shit ever concieved.... bar none.

It's called the Leopard Daytona. They also make the Zebra...The Zebra is not as bad..
Leopard:

The Zebra:
http://www.demesy.com/p/93125.html



But does that mean that this is a (shudder) Rolex factory model? As a gray market vendor, Jomashop buys from whoever has product to sell. I have no doubt that the original base watch is a new factory piece, but I can't imagine Rolex offering this misbegotten monstrosity in their catalogue. I still think this is one that got worked over by an aftermarket jeweler for the Middle Eastern or Oriental market. - a not uncommon practice.
