Invicta Watches are handcrafted Swiss timepieces sold at moderate prices for every kind of person. Invicta has been making its watches since 1837 and takes its name from the Latin for 'invincible.' The company likes to promote itself as being different from other watchmakers and rebelling from the standard by giving more people access to quality Swiss timepieces. Invicta watches come with a one year warranty, and it is also possible to purchase an extended four-year warranty. They've been worn by the rich and famous at events such as the Sundance Film Festival, the MTV Latina Awards and the Oscars. Invicta's are made to look tough and last. They are mechanical watches; some have been designed for a definite mechanical feel. The watches are made of varying metals, gold, platinum, and stainless steel. Some watches are clear underneath, a nifty feature which allows the owner to take a peek at the inner workings of the watch. Interestingly the stainless steel is often surgical grade for many of its styles. The watch bands are unusual, being made of farm raised alligator, stingray, python, ostrich, and a variety of others. For animal lovers they offer rubber watch bands in bright jellybean colors or metal watch bands. There are also two pocket watch styles made by Invicta. Other features of the Invicta's are anti-reflective sapphire crystals, automatic-winding as well as the manually winding watches and water resistances in depths ranging from 30 to 200 meters in certain styles. They have a watch style for every personality. There's the vintage collection containing watches modeled after those they produced in 1948. The ProDiver series which has gained popularity amongst collectors is the series with the amazing 200 meter water resistance. Also there is the Celestial series characterized by its large rectangular face and easy to read three, six, nine and twelve hour marks.
