Invicta makes a nice product, but probably no more or less so than the St. Moritz line that you can find on our website. They both seem to make similar products but we've found St. Moritz to offer some of the best prices and outstanding customer service to go along with it that you can hope for.

Before you buy, check the service and support for the watch. I purchased a SEIKO "Orange Monster" in June to use as a backup timer for my computer; after the first dive greater than 60' (apx 20m) with this gear (rated to 200M), I surfaced and found condensation under the crystal. Calls to Seiko, Coserv (thier service center) and local authorized dealers all came to naught ... all failed to service / repair a watch that is still under the original manufacturer's warranty.

So no matter how good you think a watch may be - the service is important unless you want a disposable bottom timer when a battery wears out, or a unit needs servicing.
