Invicta Compressors

Post by Steve O. » Sun May 21, 2017 7:38 am

Back in the day, Invicta made some cool watches, specifically the Royal Marine line. They were produced with both Compressor and Super Compressor cases. Here are a couple of crappy pics of the two that I have. The one on the left was made in July 1968, the other March 1967. Thanks for looking.

Isn't that true of most watches? You can always find some kind of design that favors another. Heck I even thought most brands in the vintage re-used cases and other parts also. :scratch:

too bad they couldn't take a time machine back to the days when they made a quality watch and didn't have a following of a bunch of psychopaths with 100 invicta watches and a 10,000.00 bill at the old shopnbc, 5X5 its a no brainer.. :think: :whistle:
