This is why I could never wear an Invicta, even one of the "good" ones. Even as a weeding-the-garden beater. To me, you may as well tattoo "MORON" on your forehead.
I'm sorry, I know some here still enjoy a few Invictas, but I just couldn't, not at any price. There are too many other, quality options at any price point to consider Invicta, and why support such an organization?
Tz, I think you speak for many of us here - but therein lies the rub. What to do with the four IWG products that sit, still running, in my "bad/cheap watch" box that actually was a giveway wooden box sent to me by the Mets for being a season subscriber?
Well, much like the Mets' ticket packages, I know a bad deal when I see one; and bad watches too. So what to do with the 8926 and the other three? Well, my wife actually likes two of the other three, so I gave one to her, as she doesn't have the righteous indigation that I do about the brand. But as I mentioned here previously, chucking out a watch feels like a sin akin to putting books in a dumpster, I can't bring myself to do it. Likewise, I never paid more than $70 or so for any of my IWG models, and I couldn't bring myself to sell them to anyone since I won't want to spread the virus.
So..from time to time..I actually wear my IWG pieces. I have to. It's a waste to do any other thing. It's not often, but I do put them on every now and again. It's like when you're really sick with a stomach flu and you reach that moment when you tell yourself, "go ahead, vomit, it won't be so bad," then you feel like you're in hell.
I probably put too much thought into this stuff, but I'm like you - I don't want a single passerby to even remotely think that I give the slightest approval to IWG. Yet, I own four.
pitch 'em someday, and I probably will.
