    These are actually part of Invictas Reserve line. Not sure what they're offering marries up to what they're saying.

    Hope you bought one,Ryan .
    Unattractive crap but for the record my eyes are not irreparably damaged, I will have not have trouble forgetting them or have recurring nightmares about them, nor did I regurgitate my meal. I am sure there is a market for these, just that I am not a part of that market.

    Their extreme shameless vulgarity and happy breaking of even the basic rules of taste almost makes them admirable............you can't say that they are wishy washy about these things!

    Agreed, the horological equivalent of the Sharknado movies, so bad they're almost good.

    Can't decide if these are worse than the Leopard Daytona.

    It isnít easy to pin down bad taste vs audacity. To me, the Invicta watches are awful but I would love a rainbow Daytona or one of these....

    A matter of quite fine degrees...The first Invicta pictured looks like what you'd get if a G Shock and this watch had a baby.

    Remarkable really. Also disgusting.

    I think I know the answer, but I'm having difficulty deciding whether the first one has a nose or a knob!

    Well, a cruise - loads of passengers with nothing to do or so see apart from filling their bellies with food and booze (possibly included in the price of the cruise) - thus mostly pissed all day long, so are the IDEAL Invicta target market!

    These must be the high demand models. I bet walletfinder have scooped them all up.

    I'd happily wear that because it would make ME smile every time I looked at it. The Invicta watches seem to be designed for other people to look at, but I can't imagine the actual response from most sane people would be what the wearer was hoping for.

    So am I the only person on the forum who dislikes this ghastly lump of horrorology?

    At least the Invicta version makes no pretensions to high design nor horology, and has the decency to be as cheap as it looks...

    The Konstantin Chaykin reeks of tryhard...

    For me it's the inexplicable decision to have the hand on the day subdial a different size to the others. It just makes the watches so unbalanced. It can only be a conscious decision to do that... why???

    I too find it caricaturish. I would find it hard to spend money on that.

    I would need to see one at different times as the eyes are OK-ish in the pic but at 7:20? Not so sure.

    I think itís fun but I accept that itís an expensive novelty watch.

    In a parallel universe where I had that loads of cash, I might get one. As it is, I would have to make do with a colourful F91W.

    Which reminds me, those invictas are not miles away from some G-Shocks (controversial opinion?)

    I can appreciate the design but it's really creepy which I suppose is the point given that it's a Stephen King tribute. I couldn't wear it.

    in a garish kind of would I wear it just for a laugh, I actually quite like the Invicta Joker watch.

    I rather like some of the louder "statement" watches that are out there, but it's not a look, for me, which sits well with high prices, and both the Invictas and G-Shocks have certainly climbed in price over the last few years.

    I do at least own a G-Shock, albeit a "Casioak" in an extremely restrained colour palette!
