I kinda sorta wish folks would read these things through before the prevailing thought is "Invictas are at Walmart now," because if you look closely, they're really not. That watch, and the Invictas at the Walmart site, aren't being sold through Walmart at all - it's a link-through from another company called Wayfair in a joint marketing venture (notice that line that said "Buy From Marketplace"?):

http://www.wayfair.com/Invictas-Subaqua-Noma-III-Collection-X130292.html

Walmart Marketplace is the same as Amazon Sellers, which allows outside companies to sell through their portals.

I like a nice snarky insult as much as the next guy, but, sheesh, make sure it's merited before slinging the mud. Again: Yeah, its the Walmart website, but you're not actually buying the watch at Walmart. That being noted, as bad as I despise IWG? I'd rather be seeing wearing a thong and a SAN IV than be caught dead in a Walmart.

That's news to me, I didn't know Walmart was doing this, but you have to admit, it's not too far-fetched to think you could see Invicters at Walmart one day.

Yes, those are indeed Invictas in a Walmart.

Two things I'd never do, all in one place. Granted, serious WGs would counter those are "I By Invicta" watches from their budget line, but hey, Invicta is Invicta.

Have at 'em, King - the proof is right there in the pics.

Walmart is missing a golden opportunity to cross-sell. On top of that display case should be a revolving rack of gift cards to places like Long John Silvers and Arby's and the closest endcap should have Cheetos and 4XL stretchpants

You're assuming it's not already like that.
