I just LOVE this watch! It is my second purchase of this exact model. The first one was literally purchased off my arm by someone who saw it and had to have it. I sold it for the same price I paid for it and, as I said, literally took it off my arm and handed it to him. Then I realized that I needed one as well. So, I waited a little while for it to go on sale and snappped up another one. It reminds me so much of my old Rolex GMT which I traded in long ago on a GMT II Bronze face. But I love the look of the black and silver. It is very striking, easy to read, easy to set and keeps excellent time. I now own several Invictas along with the Rolex and three Omegas. I love the Invictas. I try to buy a unique one each time I see something different. I buy to compliment my wardrobe. Vanity? I don't think so. It's a wonderful piece of jewely at an exceptional price. I'll try not to sell this one as I see the price has gone up.
