Invicta is a RIPOFF

Now im going to try to be nice here but its kinda hard when I have spent over $1000 on Invictas in the past 6 months and have had problems with EVERY single watch I bought. Im not a rich man but I fell in love with these watches. I finally bought My Grail and now 1 month later its dead....I simply cannot afford to pay the $40 to have my watchs sent in so im stuck with a cool Looknig watch that does not work. Well I have learned my lesson and will NOT be buying Invictas anymore. Hopefully someone will reply and not avoid this post like the plague. model numbers: 6883 6043 0195 0054

I'm not saying that you aren't telling the truth or you don't have a valid issue with Invicta but i've bought over 40 Invicta's and only had a problem with 1 so it's a little over the top for you to say that Invicta is a ripoff. You've just had a bad string of luck. Welcome to the forum by the way. __________________

Ryan, I understand your anger, as I have had my share of issues with some Invicta watches. However most times if Invicta hits the mark on mfg/quality issues you have yourself a fine watch @ a good price.


I know this doesn't help you now, but in the future maybe give a shout out to us fellow geeks & maybe we can help you with some of your issues? Btw- There are plenty of other Mfg.'s who have some awsome watches, so again if your not sure send out a thread to us geeks & maybe we can shed some light on other brands that you may have an interest in. In the meantime welcome to the land of geeks! __________________

That bites pal, sorry to hear that. I've gotten 15 or so Invictas in the past 2 years. The only issue I had was the stiching coming out of the band on one of them. I purchased that one from JC Pennys so I just took it back and they gave me a brand new one right away. Best of luck going forward and welcome to the forum! __________________ "The problem with an argument is that it usually interrupts a good discussion" G.K.Chesterton jade330i View Public Profile Send a private message to jade330i Send email to jade330i

Ryan, You're headline is only going to make things worse. You are relatively new here with only 7 posts, and while you have a right to be upset, there's a good way to handle things and a not so good way. Since I didn't look up your numbers, what is the specific problem with you Grail, and what is that watch? Also be specific as to the other watches you have and the problems with them.. If it is dead within 1 month, have you tried exchanging it for a new one or is it sold out? Have you contacted Rebecca at Invicta and explained the problem (or problems) to her? She has always been very helpful to me and others and while they might not be the fastest in turning things around, they will do what they can to take care of any problems, and that might include not charging you the small fee they normally do. Before you start mudslinging you should give them a chance to identify and correct the problem...you might be surprised as to the results.


Please respond and let us know what the issues are on all your watches and perhaps we can help. __________________ Barry G Fort Lauderdale, FL BG View Public Profile Send a private message to BG Send email to BG Find all posts by BG Add BG to Your Contacts #9 Yesterday, 05:25 AM

I gotta disagree on this one.


ONE bad watch is "oh well, suck it up" Beyond that, the company is at fault for bad QC, but there's also personal responsibility for continuing to buy the brand. Unless you got excellent CS on the earlier issues. I own about 6 Invictas; only my first one was bad. I got rudimentary CS on it the first time around, alot of "we'll see what we can do" ; in the end it went out for swiss repair, took almost 3 months to get back and it came back from service with more problems and i'm not getting any help on the re-repair. other then the stock answer of "send it in again for another 2 month turnaround". I know from several other members, the CS dept had a few others that were returned to invicta in working order, and were shipped to these customers as an exchange. I requested the same courtesy. so far no reply. __________________ If you wanna run cool, yes, if you wanna run cool, you've got to run on heavy heavy fuel Dire Straits MessalineApghar View Public Profile Send a private message to MessalineApghar Send email to MessalineApghar Find all posts by MessalineApghar Add MessalineApghar to Your Contacts #11 Yesterday, 05:35 AM Join Date: Oct 2008 Posts: 826

Thank you for the responses.... ya know that is a lot of money for me to be spending I’m just an average joe with barley any income so sorry for making it a point. I really do love these watches. the issue I’m having with my bolt is last night I unscrewed the crown and it came off in my hand....I can’t tell you why I’m not familiar with the construction. The 6043 and the 0054 have band issues. I have been waiting on the 6043 screws for about 4 months now. The 6883 has an issue with changing the date. I called customer service and they told me I needed to send it in. I’m sorry for coming off like a you know what I’m just disappointed and frustrated. I don’t want to cause waves I visit watchgeeks everyday....I bought my bolt from a member here...thanks again metalhead99979 View Public Profile Send a private message to metalhead99979 Find all posts by metalhead99979 Add metalhead99979 to Your Contacts #13 Yesterday, 06:27 AM Join Date: Oct 2009 Location: Rochester, New York Posts: 1,273

Belated welcome to you as a Watch Geek. There is a lot of information here. And some fun too. Four watches with problems is a bummer. I'd take things one watch at a time. Or call Invicta, pleasantly report what is going on, and maybe ask if you can possibly bubble wrap all of them carefully together to save money on shipping and handling. I know it's a pain to make trips to the Post Office, get everything lined up ready to mail, and pay for insurance on the shipment too (I recommend that). Hard to know what to suggest without knowing all the details, compadré. But definitely don't let it get the best of you. I've had to mail back a couple of watches over two years time. One the crown fell off in my hand, like what happened to you. The watch was dead on arrival (DoA). The other was that I simply didn't like the way it felt or looked on my wrist. But I have had good luck with the majority of my Invictas, Stührling Originals, Androids, Casios, Swiss Legend Neptunes, etc. This is one of the risks we do by shopping for stuff on TV, the Internet, or by phone. Sometimes you still can't beat the convenience and "realness" of seeing the actual purchase in a retail outlet in your hand and seeing it with your own eyes. Again, you're more important than any watch in a collection. Hang in there. Your luck will improve. All the best! __________________ "Don't sweat the small stuff?!?

If you don't want to go the route of sending in your watches, I would suggest taking them to a local Watchmaker, or Jeweler, as they could likely take care of your needs, for a lot less in both cash, and time. Replacing a crown, if it has only unscrewed, is an easy fix, as well as replacing a screw for a band. So you do have other options. Welcome to the site, and feel free to ask about any specific problems you may have, as we are all here to help each other, and may have the answers you're looking for.

sorry about your problems...

well once again sorry about what is happening to you...I have bought to date from jan. of this yr about 13 watches so far and knock on wood...no problems with any of them so far...before you bash all invicta's give them a chance to fix them...you have just had a run of bad luck with them this can be remedied...with some time and work...they have to send them back to a foreign country to get them repaired so its going to take some time...most of the time this doesnt happen to their timepieces...most of the watches that I have bought so far are of the higher end type... all invicta's.....but if you work closely with rebecca at invicta...she will help you...above all keep your chin up...and be nice to the invicta care people....being a nice person to them will get you alot further with fixing your watches than bashing and cussing at them....from what I can see they sell 1000's of watches by the month...so the 5 or 6% of problems that they have are well within the acceptable range of expected problems as a whole... keep your chin up...I promise you it will get better....and just so you know I am not a rich person either...I am on full SS disability...while I can survive on this...I work as well partime to pay for my watch obsession....thanks to the value pays at the shop...I have been able to afford some pretty expensive timepieces so far...I have been able to spend about 3 thous.so far since jan of this yr...and their retail value is well over 12 to 14 thous...proving that anyone can be a watch collector...it just takes watching the shows on the shop and waiting for the good deals to show up...and by the way

Ryan I would suggest that when you go to purchase your next Invicta's you get them when they first air,I know they will be at the higher price but the trade off is worth it.I suspect that most, NOT ALL but most issues with Invicta is one of three reasons.#1 getting a return,you cant always tell if it has been re shrinked wrapped.outside of the members of this forum I believe people tend to abuse a return a little bit,do things with it that they wouldnt dare do to their own watch since they are not keeping it.#2 every time a batch of watches is moved or shipped it runs the risk of being damaged.the newest watches will have been moved the least amount of times.#3 damaged in route to your address,watch's do suffer abuse here as well without any visible damage to the box a flat fall from 15 feet would really shake some hands loose.I've noticed here on this forum that a lot of these issues are on watches that people got for a steal of a price which would fit them into what I have suggested. There are several members that post their newly aired Invicta's without ever hearing of a bad one.But also keep in mind that Invicta like any brand is going to have issues that is their fault with no one else to blame.Good Luck desert rex View Public Profile Send a private message to desert rex Find all posts by desert rex Add desert rex to Your Contacts #19 Yesterday, 07:36 AM

Their QC and CS dept.have been a problem on this forum since the beginning so no one to blame but Invicta. Only thing I can say is you being new here and complaining about Invicta isn't going to gain you any friends here,but you do have every right to voice your opinion or disappointment with Invicta. Good luck with getting them fixed,hope you turn out better than I did.

Maybe you should save a little more money and then you could afford to send it in for $40 instead of buying so many watches. I have over 40 watches in my collection, most of them Invictas and I have had to send in one watch and that one was because it had a broken crystal. They will make it right if you send it in, but it takes a while. bkacher1063 View Public Profile Send a private message to bkacher1063 Find all posts by bkacher1063 Add bkacher1063 to Your Contacts #23 Yesterday, 08:00 AM

I don't see one "hostile" post here. You must remember, some people come here just to trash a certain brand and troll the board, so with you being pretty new, naturally you are going to get tossed in with said "trolls". Now, I am in no way saying you are a troll, but with your thread title, you are inviting some hostility. Looks to me that most replies are courteous and friendly. You would probably get much more help had you simply titled your thread a little differently. That being said, I hope you get some help from Invicta. __________________

Invictas bought in the last year- 2 went back for quality control reasons. Renatos bought in the last year- 0 went back. Androids bought in the last year- 0 went back. Swiss Legends bought in the last year- 0 went back.

My advice would be to speak to someone at Invicta and see what they can do for you and then stop buying Invictas. Obviously, you have had a run of bad luck with your purchases. Like many others, I've never had a problem with any Invicta I own. I did lose a screw from a SANIII once, but that could happen with any watch. As to the "hostility", I don't really see it, but when you post a thread where you say that Invicta is a "RIPOFF" (in capital letters no less), people will tend to respond in kind. Seems to me that people have been pretty civil in their responses. I wish you luck in getting your problems resolved. __________________

Welcome to the forum .... the title of your thread shows that you are very frustrated and upset. That's understandable, but sometimes a little tactfulness can go a long way. For example, a title like "Four Invictas with problems" .... and then in your post provide the details of exactly what those problems are, and then you will still make your point, and you would receive much more favorable responses. I had an Invicta in which the crown came out in my hand. I sent it to Invicta along with my check. Ten weeks later it came back, it was broke worse than when I sent it in. I called, they were sympathetic, I sent it in again (at my expense), they expedited and got it back to me in four weeks this time, and it was fixed perfectly. But, it took three and a half months and over $60 of shipping expenses. A few months later I had another Invicta in which the crown came out. This time I went to a local watch repair shop. The guy fixed the watch perfectly for me for twenty bucks ... while I waited. I've went back to him many times since then. So, it can be very worthwhile to establish a relationship with a good local watch guy if you can find one. Good luck on getting all of your issues taken care of. __________________ "He who marches in rank and file has already earned my contempt.

Ryan, welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your rash of bad luck. There has been a lot of tips & suggestions already posted, and I will add my two cents. In the future, if you have a problem or question, get it posted here as quick as you can. There is a huge amount of knowledge out there, and most of us want to help. Someone will reply with great advice. Others will agree and/ or have more suggestions, just like in this thread. If you do this before you've had the piece for 30 days, you will have time to do what needs to be done. Don't sit on it and get frustrated, ask your fellow geeks - they want to help!

I will not buy any more Invicta watches. I have 25 and most of them are falling apart and some say swiss but are not. I guess you get what you pay for and there are better watches. Get the watches fixed local, The CS at invicta is not up to par with most other brands.

Depending on the various problems, a local shop may be able to help for less than what you'd pay Invicta for shipping and repair. Unfortunately, the local repair option can get quite iffy - especially if Invicta specific parts are needed. Many watch repair facilities won't accept Invictas for repair because of the difficulty and time involved in getting parts from Invicta. Wouldn't be particularly concerned with warranty violations. __________________

Sorry you had that kind of results from Invicta watches. You could begin by maybe describing some of the issues and maybe get some assistance from the many experts that frequent the forum. Also, there are a few other watch brands that are also discussed here. So, maybe you could try one, or two of them. I'd recommend Android, Renato, NFW, for example. Finally, it does not matter how many posts you have here in order for it to be OK to post a negative/critical comment on any brand discussed here. While there will always be those that come to the


defense of one brand, or the other (I've never figured out why because it's only a watch, not a family member), as long as you respect others and use civil language and follow the TOS of the forum, you are probably good to go.

I have not had bad luck with Invicta watches. I'm more careful with Invicta because of all the bad CS press. On the other hand I have bought 10+ watches from a brand I won't name and sent back 3 because of problems. That's 30% bad quality! The reason I won't name the company is because their CS is so good that they immediately responded to my problems. I believe that's the difference between Invicta and the "others". Bad quality and Bad CS is just plan BAD! so people complain. Once again I've seen only quality from Invicta so hang in there. glasetj View Public Profile Send a private message to glasetj Find all posts by glasetj Add glasetj to Your Contacts #44 Yesterday, 10:41 AM Join Date: Aug 2009 Location: Silver Spring, MD Posts: 1,125 Real Name: Allen

I am sorry you feel this way. I also have had problems with new models that I had ordered even the Reserve line models. Upset yes, but, I have to say that for each one I had a problem with they made good and have fixed the problem at no charge(re: waived the $28.00). I am glad that their CS and Service Department have dramatically improved in the last 6 months time. For me, my opinion of the brand is still positive, and am happy to report that they are improving their performance in out-of-box failures. Still would like to see Invicta have holdback inventory so that in the event of a DOA they could replace with a new model within a week's turnaround as opposed to having to go back to the Motherland for an 8 week hiatus. __________________

Sorry for your losses!

Sorry to hear you are having so many problems! I had a problem with my Corduba & if you are tenacious and stay after the Customer service you will get them fixed. It is unfortunate but you are dealing wih Chinese workers who are not paid much to produce these watches so your bound to have problems. Thank God for the 5 year warranties because we certainly need them. Don't give up on Invicta they aren't all bad, you just hit the wall & it hurts. yanksmvp View Public Profile Send a private message to yanksmvp Find all posts by yanksmvp Add yanksmvp to Your Contacts #49 Yesterday, 03:54 PM Join Date: Feb 2010 Location: New Jersey Posts: 984 Real Name: Alan

Do what I did. Just go down to Invicta totin your six gun, enter the building, take the first person you see hostage and demand that your watches be fixed or replaced immediately!! Trust me. Works everytime!

Good luck with getting them fixed,hope you turn out better than I did. Since when is Invicta not considered a watch company. Or is that just your opinion.

some fans of invicta are so die-hard that invicta can do no wrong, most of us are realists, that the company has usually-good product but needs some work in some areas. JS and Mike D. , the owners of this Forum, started this forum before either was associated with Invicta, but Mike's now a direct employee of Invicta, and Jim is in a sales position with most of his time and product being Invicta.

They will take care of you but it does take a lengthy amount of time. If you've only had your watches for about a year, they should all be pretty much under the warranty.

Wow, it seems your thread has ruffled some feathers around here. Some members well take any oppertunity to tell you over and over again that Invicta is not to be taken seriously as a watch company...yet they keep buying Invicta's products. The best advice i've read in this thread came from long time member, Charlie B. He's often blunt, but always a straight shooter...he also has one hell of a sense of humor. Ok, the issue with your 6883 Reserve Pro-Diver please try to tell us with some detail just what it's doing. The 6043 Subaqua Noma III seems to be a problem that Invictas parts dept. or fellow Watchgeek can help you with...small parts are always the hardest to obtain. The 0054 Vintage Mechanical, I might be able to help you with...tell me what you need. The 0195 TTV Bolt (5050c) now there's the tough one. Sense you bought that from a fellow member it has no valid warrenty as they are not transferable. Now if the crown simply separated from the crown stem (it's a two piece affair) the repair should be a simple one. You can have it done locally or at a larger regional repair center like Universal Watch Repair in Michagan. www.universalwatch.net unclefixit View Public Profile Send a private message to unclefixit Find all posts by unclefixit Add unclefixit to Your Contacts #73 Yesterday, 09:11 PM
