Slightly Longer Planned Obsolescence

Post by TemerityB » December 25th 2019, 5:07pm

So, after years of people "calling Rebecca" and never being able to get replacement bands for Invicter "timepieces," I guess times have changed - there's now a website, apparently run by Invicta's service arm that they started a couple of years back, where they are offering replacement bands as well as bars and screws for Invicta watches (and in many cases, they're asking for more than the watches sell for, but that's another matter):

https://www.invictawatchbands.com/

Perhaps this could be helpful for members here who have some Invicta watches in their collections.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

This would be a good site for Mort to visit. As I recall, he recanted his love for Invicter after two of his rubber straps turned to wet cardboard.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Then he went back to purchasing them badbois.
Let's get real: He never really stopped. That was just for show, sort of like those heroism fables.

A new strap for an Invicter? It's like buying new tires for a Ford Pinto: sooner or later, some jagoff in a Suburban will rear-end you while texting, causing you to perish in a fireball of death.
