Invicta Reserve Excursion Sport Chrono or Is It?

Just received my Sunday Run Invicta Reserve Excursion Sport Chrono Model: 1413 and this model does not specify Reserve anywhere on the watch not even the second hand. Anyone else have the same issue?

You piqued my interest and I just received the same watch and no Reserve marking anywhere...well except on the description during the Run. Ah well, it's a gift for our dog sitter, so they'll enjoy it either way. kclaw97 View Public Profile Send a private message to kclaw97 Find all posts by kclaw97 Add kclaw97 to Your Contacts #5 12-17-2012, 06:42 PM MC11298

Funny thing is they included a small booklet titled "The Invicta Ocean Jelly" Palette Series and they are all illustrated as Invicta Reserve under the 12:00 position and the second hand has the Reserve insignia. I know I only paid $72 shipped but I feel like I got a stripped down Reserve quartz piece that I would have not otherwise ordered. When I saw a reserve piece for this money I said what the heck. I am also not willing to pay $25 to send it back. Anyone else have this same problem?

Maybe Mike will read and explain. I bought the all-white for my first white watch, and definitely want a Reserve. At $66+ it's a great pick up. Mine is due for delivery on Wed. We shall see. __________________ . . . are we having fun yet? watchgeek2 View Public Profile Send a private message to watchgeek2 Find all posts by watchgeek2 Add watchgeek2 to Your Contacts #10 12-17-2012, 09:18 PM

Basically, you got a $60 watch for your $60 bucks, give or take. You got what you paid for, I think, but it is definitely not what was shown in the pic... so you are justified in sending it back. GT __________________

The oddest thing is its not like there's a catalog number for this watch in a non-reserve/swiss parts version. At least not that I've see. But don't think this is a case of being sent a "second" or something cause its all laid out too well. They have been using the 5040d on a lot of swiss part rather than swiss made pieces lately. Just not sure what to make of this. Dark Overlord View Public Profile Send a private message to Dark Overlord Find all posts by Dark Overlord Add Dark Overlord to Your Contacts

Whats the model number? If it starts with a F, that usually signifies a watch made in the far east. No worries though, they make mistakes in the descriptions all the time. __________________

Just received my Excursion. Not an "F" model. Model 1416. 'Swiss Parts' on back of case. No Reserve designation anywhere on watch. Even the invoice states "Reserve Excursion . . ." Gonna keep it though since I don't want to pay for shipping and going through the hassle of getting my credit card refunded. Too bad. Not that it matters, but we don't get a 5 Year Warranty free. Oh well. Now to the Valgrange Venom which is sitting in its box right next to me!! Hopefully better luck. Well so much for better luck . . . NO EXTRA STRAP . . . AGAIN!!!! __________________ . . . are we having fun yet?

They have been doing that a lot. A lesson learned quite recently. The latest women's Bolt was not really a "Reserve" piece either--even though Shopnbc had included Reserve in the title.

Sorry to hear. The Run has been known to have typo's or descriptions that are not up to date. If you didn't receive what you were expecting (& are unhappy) .... call or email to arrange a return & send the watch back for a refund. __________________

Just "googled" model 1413 and World of Watches has a reserve excursion on display for that model #. Wonder what you would actually get? Interesting.


Nextdaywatches also is displaying a reserve excursion for that model #. jwilson813 Thread Tools

Saw alot of adds on Ebay for this watch that show REAL pics of it not stock photo's and none of them showed Reserve on them. Guess the Sport model is non reserve but still good looking watch and compared to what others are selling sounds like a great deal for $60 bucks no matter if it's reserve or not. __________________

This version on the Shop doesn't have Reserve on it either. I think it may be due to a photoshopping oversight on the Run.

Maria responded the following: Regarding the Invicta model 1413, our new design does not show the "R" anywhere, however it is consider part of our Reserve collection. You have 14 days from purchase date to return the watch back to Invicta for a refund. So I requested a prepaid shipping label and waiting on their response.

This may be, but swiss parts does not a reserve make. What say you my fellow geeks? __________________

Maria's response is interesting because I have the camo version, and I thought they were Reserve pieces too, but Michael specifically told me that they are NOT. __________________

I just can't get over the fact that in essence Invicta has sold me a "Reserve" knockoff. MC11298 View Public Profile Send a private message to MC11298 Find all posts by MC11298 Add MC11298 to Your Contacts #32 Today, 09:32 PM Join Date: Jan 2010 Posts: 6,924
