Wasn't this the movement Invicta hyped about a year ago (claimed 36,000 vph) with the stuttering chrono seconds hand? There are so many Invicta debacles it's hard to keep up.
After all, no ham-wristed louts complained when all watches were 34mm - no cries of "looks like a little girl's watch on my wrist!" Like King Canute on the beach, that's where I draw the line - come what may.

Yup...discussed here in some detail back then....
Re: Eyal comes clean on the NE78A Bait and Switch Scam

Noticed that Uncle Eyal failed to disclose if the movement have a 45 hours power reserve with the chrono on...this is important for two reasons, first because it needs to be disclosed for the sake of know what you getting as a consumer and for comparison purposes, secondly because it is already a geek (I'm sure will be more) comparing the NE78A with the Seiko 8R28 (use in the Brightz Phoenix Chronograph among others)
The 8R28 is entirely made in Japan by Seiko (SII) Morioka Watch Atelier , Morioka make and manufacture most high grade Seiko mechanical movements today and I seriously doubt it Invicta will have access to Japan only watch technology.
Like the NE78A the 8R28 have 34 jewels, that been said, the mainspring of the 8R28 uses Seiko's in house SPRON 510 rated at 45 hours power reserve with the chronograph running. So I would like to know, what kind of mainspring the NE78A have? where are the complete specs?
The 8R28 is a much higher-end chrono movement that the 7750 and more expensive too... wonder if they want to imply in typical Invicta bullshit that both, the NE78A and 8R28 are the same...noticed that it was no reply to the geek sugesting just that.
I love the five link configuration of the bracelet. AB-so-LUTELY stunning. Are those solid bricks? Are they bonded on a molecular level, if you will? If someone can confirm that the actual function pushers screw down and that the lume pip is actual trinite I'm all over it.
Wile Eye was doing a quick TV channel serph looking for other programing, eye stumbled accross an tv shOpping network celling invictors. Tri as eye mite, knot a single one were equipped with a NE78 movment (frowny face).
