What did you sell? Also, you haven't profiled any Nixons lately. Have you still been looking at their line?

Angelo, I own two Nixon 51-30 models, a gunmetal and an ionic black with blue numerals. The gunmetal is at Nixon headquarters being fixed or replaced because it had fog under the lens. Warranty covers repairs but I had to pay for processing and shipping: $38.

I doubt I'll buy another Nixon. They're nice but too pricey. I'm getting more wow factor with the Invicta models at lower price points.

I sold my Invicta Akula, my Invicta Russian Diver combat (all-black), and my Invicta Corduba GMT. I'm currently trying to sell my Invica Force in red.


Did you try the 50mm watches such as the 12534. Are they manyly enough?

I am hesitating between the 12534 (55mm with crown) for about 250 and the 10765 (63mm with crown i guess, like yours) for about 400 (like the white dial.

My only concern is the bezel. The plastic ring on the outside of it. What happens if that comes off or breaks? Must ruin the look of the watch completely.

How do you find the glass on the watch, is it as good as sapphire (unscratcheable)?

Can you also comment on time accuracy on these invictas and waterproofness


I sold the Sea Hunter about 6 months ago as my tastes in styles, veering away from the ostentatious, changed. The Sea Hunter I had was very accurate but it did not have a sapphire crystal.

For a fairly large watch, about 49mm case with sapphire and superior lume, you might look at the various Orient M-Force models, including the Beast.
