I thought I would share what I believe is a good deal on some cheap watches. I am attracted to Invicta and Red Line watches for the look as well as the prices. I don't expect them to be great watches but if they are half decent I will be very happy.

I just picked up the following watches (One for me and one for the wife).
I am digging the silicon bands right now.
Total price for both shipped was $93.16 on Overstock dot com.

What are your thoughts?
I have not owned many watches because I can't justify the price, but at these prices I couldn't resist putting some cigar money on hold.

Looks like the white one will arrive tomorrow, no word on the black one yet.
I will try to get some pics of them.

The white one is going to Guatamala so we will know how well it really holds up!

I like the look of the Black one. I can't speak to the quality, but you can't go wrong with $40 if you like the way it looks.

That's what I figured, even if it breaks right away at least I know not to buy the brand again. I am worried about it looking much better in the pic than in person though. We will see and I will update the thread. I am just starting out in the world of watches, figured I should start at the bottom and work my way up.

Shane, I do not know who makes Redline but they sure look like they are a sub-brand of Invicta. Let me know how you like it.

Looking around on watch forums I saw a reacurring issue of them not keep time. Some people loved them and others had the time issue, but none where the same as the one I listed above. A watch must keep time or it is a bracelet. We will see.

emopunker2004
07-12-2012, 04:01 PM
Yes but this is a quartz watch and Redline does make some automatics. Maybe it was the automatics not keeping time?

This thread is a great idea. I love wateches and only have a few but some of them are very inexpensive.

Any suggestions on a watch displan case? they have some on the amazon but I do not know anybody who has had one.

I currently only have one watch, so I have not yet a need for a case.
I have a Fossil from many years ago, nothing special but I thought it looked nice back then and I got alot of compliments on it.

Can't find a stock image of it, will have to snap one. It served me well but got a little beat up.

So far they meet my hopes and exceed my expectations for the price.
I didn't really take the invicta out of the box.
The only complaint about the Redline so far is the date window is soo small.
I think the Invicta might be too big of a face for my wife's wrist.

I don't know, I think I would like it better if the band was all black and didn't have the colored hold downs.
I would like to see it on a wrist.

Hello. Just wanted to say that $69 is about what I pay for three watches, and $104, guess that's four or five of what's in my wheelhouse. Much as I like wearing the things seems like I'm tough on 'em whether at work or play, no sense paying more than $25-ish except for one dress-up-occasion-only watch.

Heck who needs online vendors when there's so many Big Lots stores around? The ones I buy there for $8 seem to last as long as what Target or Kohl's throws on their clearance racks for $25 or more.

emopunker2004
07-30-2012, 11:23 PM
I used to be the same way but lately I've gotten in to watches. As far as things go $69,$100, $200 is still a budget watch.

Yeah I know, was kinda exaggerating a little for effect. But not out and out fibbing. Heck it was just this year when I scraped together enough "disposable" income to buy a carry gun that costs above the $1,000 mark. (Springfield EMP 9mm.) And yes it's got a little wear and tear on it already, just have to expect that to happen. Ahem...I'm drifting into a different thread there, sorry.

Yah me too, I actually really like the design of this one. Wouldn't mind spending a couple hundred later on a nicer similar style watch. This one will have to suffice for now though!

Seiko makes an auto similar to that style both in 37mm and 42mm cases. The smaller runs like $80 and the bigger like $115-$120

This Android is a similar style to an extent too
