Only $117 for it? Sign me up for six dozen.
Sad. Even the 'ol Reserve line ain't what it never was anymore.
Indeed. For a long time, I thought Invicter's slide to appalling started at around the time of the financial crash, in 2008. Up until then, the Reserve line was meant for those Invicter collectors who could, I don't know, actually button up a four button vest correctly. According to Satan
Lalo, only the "top five percent" of Swiss wartchemakers could work on a Reserve wartche. They were all Swiss. They were made, presumably, at Invicter's Very Hard To Find Swiss factories.
And then, the market blew up, and the sky fell, and we were standing on the abyss of a new Great Depression.
Suddenly, and with a surprisingly fast turn-around, the Reserve wartchs turned to shit, and the price dropped accordingly. Looking back, I surmise that this turn-around was actually far too fast, and that Invicter Reserves were actually pieces of shit all along, and the crash allowed Eyal, ever the opportunist grifter, to reprice his Reserve wartchs for what they always were, overpriced pieces of fucking shit that he repriced down so he could keep the grift going.
Perhaps I'm wrong, but underestimating the value of Invicter is always a safe bet.
Regarding the OP's wartche: It's an appallingly vulgar piece of fucking shit,
