I bought this watch for my boyfriend's birthday. I wanted to get him something practical but also stylish. He absolutely loved it. The watch is of extraordinary quality and is even more beautiful in person than in pictures. It is not too big or heavy like many of the reviews complain it to be. It is an expensive watch so it does have some weight, but not enough to hinder the user in any way. The watch is looks very proportionate on him even though he does not have the widest hands or wrist. The leather case it came in is also gorgeous and very well made. Every element of the watch has been carefully crafted. I can not believe I purchased such a high quality watch for less than $100. I am very happy with my purchase and will be buying more Invicta watches for my boyfriend, my family, and myself in the future.
3,0 de 5 estrellasAttractive, sporty watch for casual wear. Difficult to view in less-than-perfect light conditions.

I selected this product for review because it looked like something my husband would like; he likes his watches even in the smart phone era and will probably always wear one (he feels like something is "missing" when his is off). So this review will be from his experience and observances of the product. He's admittedly hard on watches and if one lasts 2 years it's on borrowed time; he works in the utility (water) industry but does home renovating and auto repair etc. so the watch is in constant peril. His favorite Seiko succumbed to an errant framing nail from a nail gun, for instance, so durability is a concern. It appears to be well-made. So far there are no scratches on the band, the plating seems to be durable.
He liked the "heft" of it. It is a little heavy in comparison to what he usually wears. It's not really his style per se but it's snazzy and a couple of his co-workers noticed it the first day he wore it. It's attractive without being too flashy, it just looks and feels substantial.
It comes with a generously-sized band. He has a smaller wrist and had to have 2 links removed by a jeweler, and then had to move the clasp to the closest of four holes and it was still too large. Today we stopped in and had one more link removed and the fit is perfect. You can "fine tune" the fit about 1/2" overall. The clasp buckle has 4 adjustment holes in one end (comes from the factory in the "largest" sizing) in one end and 2 in the other but he discovered that only one of the two is usable, if you try to get that extra 1/8th inch by moving the band inward the clasp won't latch, period. It's a design flaw but just a minor annoyance when you're trying to get the fit just right and just need it a little tighter.
The clasp latches down tightly and hasn't opened on it's own during normal wear so far. The band is comfortable with smooth edges, no pinching or arm hair getting caught as some bands are wont to do.
Now for the cons. 1: The watch dial is difficult to see in low-light conditions. The picture on the product page is not an accurate representation of how it actually looks. The hands are supposed to be blue with luminous inserts against a black background but these are such a dark shade that there is only visible contrast in sunlight or under fluorescent lighting. He thought maybe it was just his eyesight but other reviewers are saying the same thing. Which brings us to con #2: The luminous markings aren't. Period. You can expose them to sunlight for a while, go to a dark room and they have a faint glow but not nearly enough to see. He wears it for hours under fairly bright lighting at work in the evening but can't tell the time from it in the truck on the way home (I know, most vehicles have clocks that actually work these days but that's not the point). It's the first watch he's had with luminous markings that don't work. That makes the watch basically useless after the sun goes down. Con #3: The sub-dials for second, minute and hour are tiny and suffer from the same contrast issue as the main face. The buttons to activate them are screw-down like the crown for water resistance which makes them not so user-friendly. This being the "Speedway" model I think scuba diving capability is not really a necessary feature.
Overall, at first glance it looks and feels like a nice moderately-priced watch should. In real life use it misses the mark for function so I can't really justify a rating over 3 stars. It was a free product for review and I regret that I can't give it a favorable grade but the truth is if I purchased it I would probably return it for an exchange or refund, something I very seldom do.

Bottom line, placed here at the top: This seems like a good, solid, well-made watch that is well worth the $80 price.
Pros: (1) looks and feels like a higher-end watch, (2) the band stays properly clasped and doesn't pulls hairs out of your wrist, (3) appears to be truly water-resistant, (4) has a stopwatch feature.
Cons: (1) Instructions shipped with the watch are unclear and incomplete, (2) numbers and markings on the face are very small and might be hard to read for many.
Review: The Invicta Men's 17313 Speedway watch feels much heavier than any other watch I've ever worn, and I thought that would be annoying for an active person, but once it's on the wrist, I really don't notice the extra weight. However, it was frustrating trying to figure out how to set, use and reset the stopwatch. The instruction booklet that comes with the watch covers several different models of Invicta watches, and even when I deduced which section applied to my model, the instructions for resetting the stopwatch back to zero did not work for the "minutes" dial. I thought it was broken. A Google search uncovered a page of instructions specifically for this model watch, and my first thought was, "Why didn't they just ship THESE instructions with the watch? Or at least give us an online link to find them?" Eventually, I was able to deduce how to reset the stopwatch dial.
I have been wearing two other watches interchangeably: a rich-looking analog Helbros watch for dress-up, and a cheap digital Casio databank because I often use the alarm, calculator, world-time, timer and stopwatch functions. This Invicta won't embarrass me like my nerdy Casio, but the Invicta stopwatch function is practically useless to me because it is analog and the numbers are tiny. It's much easier to run and see the Casio digital readout.
People often denigrate products made in China, so I tried to determine where this Invicta was made. Invicta is a Swiss company with offices in Florida USA, and this watch is advertised as "Japanese Quartz." Sources say Invicta watch parts are made in several different countries, often Malaysia. In tiny print at the bottom of this watch's face, it says "Japan Movt."
I have owned several other watches with this kind of clasp band, and every one of them pulled hairs out of wrist. Hairs get caught in the tiny crevices of the band, and when the watch shifts on my wrist, it painfully yanks out those hairs. My Helbros watch did that until I changed to a different kind of watch band. Also, the original Helbros band had a weak clasp that often popped open by itself. This Invicta band is of a similar design to that original Helbros band, but thankfully, it seems to be designed better, because it doesn't pull hair out of my arm and has yet to pop open by itself.
Second bottom line, this one actually at the bottom: The Invicta won't turn heads like a Rolex and won't do a lot of tricks, but if you like its looks, it is a decent mid-level watch.

This is a very handsome watch. It's also a very heavy watch.
I stopped wearing a watch several years ago when it seemed a little redundant with carrying a smartphone with me all the time. Personally, I don't wear a watch as a fashion accessory, so functionality and practicality are the determining factors for wearing one. When I was offered the opportunity to review this Invicta 17313 model, I figured sure "it's been awhile."
Out-of-the-box the watched seemed much more expensive than its MFRP. It's sturdy, stainless steel, and has quite a bit of heft (did I mention its heavy?). Mine is the speedway chronograph and I find the function mostly useless for my world, but its there if anyone needs it. I tried to play around a bit with the stopwatch and chrono and wasn't very impressed with the action of the buttons. The buttons all have screw-down water-tight fittings that must be "unscrewed" to gain access to the function...kind of hassle, but understandable I suppose to stay true to the water-resistance side of the build. Other than this particular chrono feature the watch is pretty straight-forward in its design. There is a day counter to keep track of what day it is...
The bezel has markings set for time splits when using the chronograph, but my aging eyes had a tough time distinguishing the markers, also the nice looking black finish contributes to the difficulty of making out the hash marks on the bezel...at least it does for my eyes (I do wear progressive bifocals).
I wrestled a bit with what ranking I would give this watch. Based purely on my impressions, I rank it a 3-star, but I'm thinking I might be a little harsh and were it not for my poor vision and the fact that I'm not used to having what feels like 2lbs of metal dangling on my wrist, I might rank it a 4-star watch. It is truly built well and it is a very nice looking watch. That alone counts for something.
