Swiss-Made Vintage Invictas

Post by koimaster » December 21st 2020, 6:00pm

Just the name Invicta can make some watch enthusiasts recoil, and for good reason. Today, Invicta is often emblematic of iterative, over-the-top watch designs, as unrestrained in their mishmashed styles as in their size. However, the brand, founded in the 19th century in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, didn’t always make watches that look this way.

Over the brand’s history, there have been everything from elegant grand complication pocket watches to cool mid-century chronographs, divers, and dress watches. Vintage Invicta watches are pretty hard to find now, but the interesting few specimens below show a different, largely forgotten side of a well-known brand. For many, it might be a challenge to see beyond the name on the dial and the strong associations it conjures, but they are definitely worth a look. ... a-watches/

There was a time.

Not since 1991, but there was a time.

I look at Chrono24 and WatchRecon quite a bit - you should be the esteem old Croton still maintains. Some of those old Croton divers go for more than $2,000- way more. Precious metals, even. The Nivada Croton period. Still being collected (and coveted) to this day.
