It's been over 15 years for me, minus a few weeks where I buy a watch for the sake of trying it out again. I bought my most recent one 2-3 years ago, wore it on and off for about three months (probably more like two weeks out of the three months), and now it's sitting in the drawer in my desk.

They are big and clunky.
Guy I used to skate with has about 20 different Invictas, and I agree that they all look clunky. If I were to buy another watch, Invicta wouldn't be anywhere near the top of the list. It might not even be near the middle of the list.

Invicta as 2-3 good models and the rest is pretty much junk. For the same price there are many better watch makers out there.

I have a couple. Nothing expensive of fancy but I've been buying watched that I find nice for a little while now:



The rubber ones have an interchangeable dial, I found it in europe and thought it was cool. The top-left one is a scuba diving watch that my dad got about 30 years ago.

I swap straps occasionally to change the look but I was mostly joking about swapping the strap on a half-million dollar watch.

Also, Invicta is garbage. It's what Flava Flav would wear if he went through bankruptcy and they took his neck clock.
