The Great Look Of An Invicta Watch

The new boss in the office is wearing a fantastic looking watch and you really want to find out the manufacturer of it, but you do not want to appear to be trying to impress him. You keep glancing at the atch hoping to make out the name and you finally realize that it is an Invicta watch. You have heard of them before, but you had never seen one that looks as good as this one.

How do you now go out and get yourself an Invicta watch without appearing to be mimicking the new boss. Well, you have to nothing to worry about since they make hundreds of different styles and models of their famous timepieces.

The Invicta Watch group is a Swiss company that was founded in 1937 in La Chaux-de-fonds by Raphael Picard (not a relative of Jean-Luc Picard from Star-Trek the Next Generation). The company was run by his descendants until the 1970's when an investment company in the United States purchased the company. They still produce great watches.

Today, the company has expanded its territory and the watches are made both in Switzerland, Japan and United States. They are usually labeled by the country of origin such as Swiss Movement or Japan Movement when sold.

With competition in the watch industry being so intense, the Invicta Watch Group has begun to appear on television selling their products. In particular, they appear on the ShopNBC programs where they have an opportunity to show and describe their watches and people can call in and purchase them. In fact, there are over 1,950 different watches for both men and women.

If you are lucky enough to own an Invicta watch that was made in the 1940s and that belonged to your grandfather, you may have a priceless heirloom. While it may be worth a lot of money, the real value is in the history of the watch in the family. Knowing that your grandfather used it to keep track of the time and then passed it on to your father, who has now given it to you makes it valuable.

It might look old, but it is. Your Invicta watch was meant to be used and enjoyed. Not locked up in a safety deposit box or stuck in the back of a drawer. If it is a pocket watch, go out and invest in a nice chain. Either way, you can take it to a watch repair shop at the local shopping mall and have the inside of the watch inspected to make sure that everything is okay.

You can have it cleaned and if necessary, have a new crystal put on it. Now, it ready for you to use and enjoy. Think about the stories you will be able to tell you son about the history of the watch and see the wonder in his eyes. And, you can tell him how 'someday' the watch will belong to him-for him to treasure, use and to pass on again to his son.
