God, I can't stand YouTube reviews. Uninformed, dazzled by sales figures, not even looking into the fact that they've been bilking people for more than a decade. Any asshole with a fucking webcam is a watch expert. I've seen a bunch of dunces on YouTube, but this goof really takes the cake.

Do the math (as quoted by the Chuckleberry in the video). Fourty million in sales since 1991. Sounds impressive enough, but let's do the math. Thirty years times 4000 models per annum equals 120k. Fourty million in sales divided by 120k means 333 watches of each version have been sold. Any reputable manufacturer could claim all of these to be very limited (LE) editions. Yet these limited edition bad bois are largely sold late at night on a third rate cable shopping channel. It is definitely time to accept Invicta as the Chinese parts catalog lowest bidder watch kings that they are.

Accept it? Accept it? As Churchill said... We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

Brilliant.

And, oh - good to see you! Haven't read your prose in some time.
