My Tauchmeister Automatic----will have its second hand move in two second intervals. It still keeps good time----but if I wear it a few days in a row, then the second hand behaves normally and moves in one second intervals. Isn't that how the Kinetics behave?

Angelo, Seikos do that. I wonder if it's common. Probably.

That's the watch's way of letting you know that its power reserve is low - it is an intentional design feature not a flaw. My solar Seiko SSC015 did that after I had it in a box - and away from light - for a few weeks. After letting it sit out for a few days it charged up fine.

There seems to be two versions of the Invicta Force 4830.

One version shows the "12" mark, and the other has the Invicta logo instead of the "12".

Which version was released first? Or where there two types under the same style number?

During my Invicta phase, I owned both versions. One had a double crown; the other had only one crown. They had different model numbers. One was the 4830 and the other I believe started with an F. But I can't remember the numbers. I don't care for the new versions of the iForce series.

Curiously, I've been buying quite a few Invictas lately. I saw curiously----because as of a few months ago, I didn't expect to be adding to my collection of 2 Invictas----far more interested in other watch brands I'd been buying. But I got the urge for a thick watch---not necessarily a large diameter, but a thick case and crystal. I've found quite a few Invictas that satisfy that "need" including the new Hydromax and also, the Subaqua Scuba. Anyway Jeff, from what I've been reading, it seems that your "Invicta Phase" happened during a sort of golden period for them. I can't remember exactly when you were buying the most, but apparently, 2011, give or take a year, was a great time for Invicta. Quality might be slipping a bit lately----still a good value if you want a big, heavy, stylish watch----but perhaps not quite as well made as they were a few years ago. No complaints about the new ones I've recently acquired---but I've also been buying a couple used or new/old stock too.
