Dang it!!!
I’m not russian.


#4

Just because the manufacturer lists a crazy MSRP that no one ever sells for doesn’t make it a real price.
This is a $200 watch at best.


#5

Why would I want a watch made from a Russian diver’s skeleton? What’s that? Oh, never mind.


#6

What is that chain? It’s not addressed in the description.

Not saying $70 off isn’t a good deal, but this isn’t a $1000 watch.

[MOD: cough They have the same list price as we show though.]


#8

yes it is. It’s a mechanical wind-up driven watch, that chain attaches to to cap so you don’t lose it


#9

Ah, the wristwatch. You know, the wristwatch was inwented in Russia.


#10

Man, I would have snatched this thing right up if it were a chronometer. I was researching watches just the other day, and chronometers have an interesting history.

This is a cool read too.


#11

Ahh… the wistwatch was inwented in Wussia


#12

It attaches the screw down crown cap to the watch so you don’t lose it. Also doubles as a bracelet for a really, really small person.


#13

Do you think the silver/black model is really self winding or is that a typo? All of the others have mechanical wind mechanisms…

[MOD: I’m checking.]


#14

Serious question woot. All of them say mechanical wind except the silver one. Is that the case or it the only one that is truly self winding (kinetic)?

[MOD: I’m checking.]


#15

Per the specs, the Invicta 1843 / silver with black is an AUTO SELF-WIND movement while the others are all mechanical HAND-WIND movements. I don’t think that is correct - at least based on the photo of the Invicta 1843 / Silver with Black showing the back crystal which has no winder and looks exactly like the other models.


#16

Okay… Let’s be serious. This is not a thousand dollar watch, so just stay calm everyone. This watch is “worth” however much you want to spend for a big hunk of manly costume jewelry that also keeps time. The highest price that a gullible buyer might pay to obtain this monstrosity elsewhere would be about $400, but it’s routinely available for about $100 to $150, so this woot offering is actually a good deal – if you want this watch.


#17

In Soviet Russia watch winds you!


#18

Amazon says the 1843 is self wind, and the 1844 is mechanical.
