It's over a month since I purchased this watch for my wife, and still haven't been notified by Invicta or ShopNBC, that the diamond accented watch I ordered have crystals instead. I would suggest anyone who bought this watch to have a jeweler checkout the status of the stones. It might not even cost you anything. Over 3200 of these watches were sold, so Invicta and ShopNBC will have a tough job finding the few who received the crystal version meant for a different market. In fact you might have the crystal version and not be notified at all. So it might be in your interest to have them appraised. __________________

At this point I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. I just got off the phone with my jeweler and asked him to also inspect the movement. In his appraisal it will list what the stones are and the type of movement in the watch. I'll be picking up the appraisal tomorrow. After receiving the appraisal I'll contact both Invicta and ShopNBC CS for an exchange for the diamond accented watch with the Swiss parts movement that was advertised. __________________

I'll be looking for it also. You should email back and ask them if they can check their records and let you know if you received one of the one's with genuine diamonds, or if yours is one of the crystal "fake" diamond versions .... see what they reply. __________________ "He who marches in rank and file has already earned my contempt.

I just checked SNBC's web site and found a product review on this watch, so it appears I'm not the only one to get the crystal stone watch. Here's the customer's review on this watch: "I bought this watch for my wife and one of the so-called diamonds fell out 1 day after it arrived. We took it to our jeweler and he advised me that this watch contained no diamonds, but that these were only crystals that were cheaper then CZ's. Shame on Invicta and ShopNBC once again. False advertsing is a crime. If you have one of these I would send it back for a full refund before your 30 day window closes." __________________

The above ShopNBC customer made an excellent point. If you bought this watch and to determine if the stones are crystal, you should phone ShopNBC CS to extent your 30 days return window, so as to give you the needed time to have the stones inspected by a jeweler. __________________

Just checked out WorldofWatches.com's web site and they are selling a similar model of this watch.


Invicta Women's Invicta II Diamond Accented Stainless Steel - Style or Model: 0126 http://www.worldofwatches.com/detail...iance_id=81044

Below is the one from ShopNBC Invicta II Women's Classique Boutique Quartz Diamond Accent Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch - J179607 Model# IN0132 http://www.shopnbc.com/PRODUCT/?trac...h-_-family-_-N


While similar the model numbers are different, and the stones on the T-Bars are not the same. Maybe WOW got the the real diamond version, and ShopNBC sold the crystal version meant for the different market? __________________

Stones Confirmed As Not Being Diamonds On My Watch

I received the jeweler's appraisal today on my Invicta II Classique Boutique watch. I will quote the section pertaining to the stones. "The stones set around the bezel and on the band are not diamonds. They are glued in and appear to be foil back crystals." The jeweler inform me "foil back" means they put something shiny under the stones to make them sparkle more. With this information I will now contact Invicta's and ShopNBC's customer service. I will be requesting the identical watch I originally ordered, but this time the one with real diamonds. I also spoke with a Justin from ShopNBC customer service who was very understanding. When I explained the situation to him and requested an extension to my return period, he extended it to August 14th. __________________

This is assuming that there were actually ANY of them produced that actually had real diamonds. The one person so far who reported he had real diamonds said to me via pm that he was really not that confident about that information, and he is going to take it someplace else for testing next week and will let us know. Has there been anybody else yet who has discovered that they had genuine diamonds? Even if there were "some" that were real, and "some" that were fake ..... how many of each were there?? how do they know who got what (IF there were any with real diamonds at all) ?? why did shop need to order Jim to not make any comments, or pass on any information ?? how come the Technical Brand Manager has nothing to say about this ?? An immediate and transparent full disclosure of ALL of the details is the only appropriate response from both Shop and Invicta. __________________ "He who marches in rank and file has already earned my contempt.

However, watchgeeks is a small portion of the people who bought this watch. In my correspondence with Invicta and ShopNBC, I will ask them to recall the watches sold or to notify each person who purchased one, of the possibility the stones in their watch might be crystals and not diamonds. __________________

"immediate and transparent full disclosure of ALL of the details" there never is ever... we both know there will be no

I printed out the ShopNBC's web page before all of this discussion had started and it said nothing about crystals. It still states online nothing about crystals. In fact ShopNBC's web page still says "Invicta II Women's Classique Boutique Quartz Diamond Accent Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch - J179607". I also just did a word search on the same web page for "crystal" and the only thing that


comes up is Crystal: Flame Fusion. __________________
