  • Invicta 9937OB Watch

    I bought one of these watches about two years ago. It keeps decent time, has a sapphire crystal, has a Swiss automatic movement and is waterproof to 200 meters. I did not care for the polished center section of the band, so I scuffed it up with a red scotch brite pad. It now has a "brushed" finish.

      It is not tritium. It starts to get a little dimmer after a couple of hours in the dark.

        I have quite a few Invicta watches, both quartz and automatic movements. I'm currently wearing a model 0992 (very similar in appearance to the watch shown) except it is 47mm case size, black MOP dial, TRITIUM markers!!! and a Sellita SW200 automatic movement ( this is a clone of the ETA 2824-2 movement that is used by many of the high end watch makers). Watch is waterproof to 500 meters (1650 ft.) It is a good (not to mention classy and good looking), pretty accurate watch that NEVER needs a battery. Automatic watches will not be AS accurate as quartz, but they are usually accurate to +/-2:00 min. a week. I had extremely good luck with a Timex Reef Gear quartz watch (got 10 years on a 2016 watch battery, but this isn't the norm.) In a survival situation, exact time keeping may not be absolutely necessary (we probably won't have to punch a clock at work, but elapsed time will still be important). With the automatic movement as long as you are moving your hand/arm in a normal fashion, the watch will always be wound sufficiently to keep accurate time. My watch cost between $300.00 AND $400.00 dollars, but Invicta watches can be had for less than $80.00 dollars with the automatic movement if you do a little searching on the web. I like them and recommend them highly.

            I have been very happy with my Seiko 5 Military watch. Automatic, SS case and fabric band. I was so happy with it I have purchased one for my Father and Father in Law. Not as nice as an Invicta by any means but I can pick one up new for less than $80.00

            The true Japanese made ones are better quality but they also cost double the price. I am pretty sure this watch was standard during the first Gulf War. My first one came from a Marine Sniper. Even after a long service it still worked great and kept accurate time. Not until I smacked into a tree mountain biking did it finally bite the dust.

            The replacement has been chugging along and seems to be a few minutes fast. Not worried about showing up early, so no big deal.
