Venom Bracelet the good and bad!!!

Ordered this bracelet on March 17th and received it on Aug 23rd. After the long wait, I truely am amazed at the unique design of this bracelet. I also thought the gal made a mistake when she told me 75.00 for the bracelet. It was invoiced to me at 75.00 plus 12.00 shipping. I seem to remember hearing someone say that it was more like 120.00. Love the feel of this watch much better with the bracelet over the rubber strap. Now the bad! The following photos will show the problem with this bracelet. One side they did not drill the hole correctly and the slight misalignment causes the bracelet to pivot at the watch when not wearing it. The holes are also drilled bigger than they needed to be which gives it more slop. And yes the spring pin is in the holes in this picture


This is what it should look like

you can see the difference in the two sides in the next two photos the bad side


the good side

Overall love the bracelet, just wish they could do it right.

Took me 5 months to get this one and no guarantee that I will get a better one. __________________

Send it back, you'll look at it everytime you wear it and know you're really not happy. Sinalin View Public Profile Find all posts by Sinalin Add Sinalin to Your Contacts #5 Yesterday, 09:00 PM Join Date: Apr 2010 Location: Rhode Island Posts: 773 Real Name: Kevin

If the bracelet looks OK while you are wearing it, I would keep the bracelet and wear the watch. However, I would call Invicta and order another one. In 4 months when the next one arrives, return this one as defective and ask for a refund. BTW. I ordered a Venom bracelet (two-tone) and it cost $112 shipped. I had no problems with it.

Wow, I have ordered 3 of them and they all fit great. I have my 4th on the way, so I hope I don't experience the same problem. Did you have the Venom with 2 pins on each side or just one? Just thinking that if it's two, maybe there is a difference in the location of the holes?? __________________ Corvettes & Watches

I ordered one and it took about 7-weeks and had no problems with it and I paid $100.00 shipped. I would call Invicta customer service and hang on the phone,it may get a little frustrating but hang in with the call and talk to someone about the issue,hopefully they will get another one out to you in a few months. Sorry, I know that sucks,again its a reserve piece and theres a QC issue again. My last two reserve watches I ordered had some crystal issues,I don't know too many watches too fast. rayjr09 View Public Profile Find all posts by rayjr09 Add rayjr09 to Your Contacts #12 Yesterday, 10:37 PM

Just a guess, but think that could be the bracelet for the interchangable, hence the bigger holes? __________________

Maybe that one they sent you was the 'Ocean Quest' Model with a different hole alignment?? Just speculation though.. __________________

They sent you the wrong bracelet, send it back, it's a heavy watch and it's going to eventually start hurting your wrist if it isn't sitting correctly. Good luck!! __________________

It can't be the wrong bracelet. If one end of the bracelet fits perfectly into one set of lug holes, but not the other, then there is either a problem with the holes on one end of the bracelet or with the lug holes on one side of the watch.
