Or, never buy a new car or clean and wax it because hey, why would you want anyone admiring anything you have or like. Cmon people, let's get real. We all enjoy it when someone admires a watch we picked out. End of that story ok?

Here is an interesting link I found on the internet that speaks about Invicta and it does not seem to be very favorable.

I'll post it here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invicta_Watch_Group as some have said, your mileage may vary

You have the look at me attitude.Sorry,thats something people grow out of.
Nothing wrong with owning nice cars either but if you are driving it for attention,again,thats vain.I don't wear a watch or drive a car to get noticed.
You really want to get noticed? go to work wearing just a jockstrap.That ought to do it.

I'm constantly amazed when folks say that they have had X, Y, and Z want to buy the watch off their wrist. I've had that happen once in my life and it was a used car salesman who thought he was going to be able to rip me off because I was in college (was wearing by Great-Grandfather's 14k Hamilton at the time - about 34mm BTW). In all the years since, and I have worn a watch nearly ever day, I've only gotten a few comments on my watches. The most recent was when I wore a 45mm and it was compared to "my mother's kitchen clock".

Everyone that wants to talk watches is welcome here. There's no "you like Big watches, well that's for X forum - go there" attitude. On the other hand, don't expect an Amen Chorus from folks here. If you can't take differing opinions and need the reassurance of blind affirmation for your watch choices this is probably not the place. Myself, I try to be nice whenever someone says "Look at my watch" - even if its a Rolex The Latest Invicta Fiasco and subsequent WG coverup and banning spree: - Page 3 Affraid

Has anyone ever heard a story where a stranger offers to buy a watch that is not an Invicta or Renato off of someone's wrist?

Why doesn't this happen to owners of Graham, Eberhardt, Zenith, Corum, etc... (brands chosen for their bold/large designs)
And if it does happen why don't they post these stories?

It just doesn't add up.

But then again these scenarios could be at play.

Different personalities and preferences with regard to posting personal anecdotes?
This just doesn't happen enough?
The brands above are not diamond studded and therefore are not considered jewelery?
Hum...

Maybe another thread on the issue is in order... Please feel free to break this out and create one dearest mods.

Ok...unless there is more commentary on the movement issue and NOT more Invicta FOLKLORE, probably time to let this thread die.
