more like an advertisment.


It is and advertisment, no doubt...nevertheless, one of Invicta's finest (never heard a problem with this model) the 2894 movement was nice and looks like for a change, they paid someone the money to do it right.

Wouldn't it be amusing if suddenly he turns up as rep for Invicta? Even more so if he replaces MD.


He commented he would not rep on his facebook page. He stated he was a tv host and that is what he would stay.

"blatant" Doyle? .....sure, what was the giveaway factor for you? the subdials function layout on the dial? case size? the pattern on the dial? the lettering on the bezel? the window display back?
I get it, must be the the date wheel (a dead giveaway).... identical indeed, a Cosmograph clone, good catch!! thank you for bring it to our attention.

Brilliant! I agree, as long as it's COSC......even though Invicta has managed to misrepresent almost every watch made, this is one statement we can all stand behind.
COSC=Certified Origin Shanghai China.

Still, if it's COSC... I guess.

You guys are a bunch of haters! The reviewer points out:

The new Speedway is not only a triumph for Invicta, but a symbol of the future of the company. Relying more on their own design work, the Speedway no longer closely resembles anything else on the market… it has a spirit all it’s own.

I rest my case!
