What's the movement on the Omega? Is that an acrylic lense?

Omega c.861. Same one they've used for 30+ years after they switched from the c.321--though I don't think there's much difference between the two. And yeah, acrylic.

My favorite new watch. Only one I am currently wearing now. I just love the look of it.

Stainless Steel
Tactical Nylon
Croc Embossed Leather
Color Matched Polyurethane

The watch with the SS bracelet weighs 16oz, it's a heavy beast. Like it or not, that's why I buy Invicta, I like the heft. The individual components are:
Case 8.9oz
SS bracelet 7.1oz
Leather 1.1oz
Nylon 1.2oz
Polyurethane 2.1oz

Can someone give me their opinion on Swiss Legend? Saw one on sale, same price as an Invicta on sale. Debating on which one I want when I lose my initial 20 lbs as a reward.

Default Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

I have both, the Swiss Legend has a more supple polyurethane strap...if the one you're looking for has a poly strap. Between the two, I bought on Swiss Legend and in most cases will not go back to them. That being said, for me, I like the heft and weight of Invicta, the Swill Legend are no where near as solid or heavy. So, it will depend on what YOU'RE looking for in your watch.

The last place I saw it.

But this is 20 pounds I am losing. Not planning on losing this watch.

Wade, I am looking for something....substantial. Good size and heft to it.

Jason, if you have a Sams club or Costco near you, you can look at one there. Invicta has twice the heft that Swiss Legend has. Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of the SL designs, but they just dont compare to the Invicta for feel. I think JC Penny carries Invicta too.

Cant say I am a collector but I have a few watches. A Seiko pre-kinetic years watch, Guess water sport pro stainless, and an Invicta chronograph. These range from 16 yrs old down to 2 and all keep great time.
