FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Invicta Men's 21474 Pro Diver Analog Display Swiss Quartz Black Watch

This watch looks great.  It is striking in appearance and looks quite manly.  It feels heavy on the arm.  Just for yucks I weighed it and it is 4.1 oz compared to my dress watch at 3.2 oz.  It felt like it weighed a lot more than my very slim/sleek dress watch.  I think that is due to the size.  2 1/8 " from the 9 to the tip of the middle stem vs. 1. 1/4" on my dress watch.  With all that said, if you are looking for a diver looking watch this looks the part.  It is water resistant not water proof so it is really a diver looking watch.  The two extra large buttons are for quick correction of date and quick correction of the 24 hour second time zone.  That allows you to fix those without pulling out the stem (crown).   The day and the date are pretty much irrelevant to any one with normal vision.  I guess you  have to have extraordinary vision to use them.  Even with my bifocals, I had to lift them and squint to see the day or time. 

If you are looking for a smart looking watch that appears to belong on a Navy Seal and you have exceptional vision and don't mind the size and the weight, if may be perfect for you.  I asked my teen age grandson his opinion thinking it might appeal to the younger crowd and he asked me, "why would I wear a watch when I have my  phone?"  So this isn't an overt criticism of the watch as it seems just fine for what it is.  Apparently it isn't for me though.  Oh and it only has a one year warranty which is surprisingly short for a $100.00 watch.  If you need to send it in for repair you have to include a check for $28.00 for return shipping which is more than 25% of the price, that just seems exorbitant.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
