If you’re looking for a stylish watch with functionality in mind, the Invicta Men’s Invicta II Silver Dial Stainless Steel Quartz Watch might be up in your alley. This sports watch is perfect for every day use, but can withstand the occasional adventure if need be.

Here are some of the key features of the Invicta 1441:

  • Stainless steel band and case
  • Japanese Quartz movement
  • Flame Fusion Crystal lens
  • 60 second, day and month dials
  • Water resistance to 300 feet.
  • Rotating bezel

The polished, stainless steel case is eye catching, but subtle. It’s steel band has a slick brushed chrome color that compliments the polished case nicely. The face of this sports watch has large tick marks every 5 minutes, with the numbers 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, and 10 displayed for reference. This unconventional watch face may turn off a few people who like the normal 12, 3, 6, 9 numeral setup, but it certainly gives the watch a unique look.

It’s subtle looks speaks for it’s functionality, there are three dials in the middle of the watch face that are made for tracking the month, day, and how many seconds have passed. The month and day dials are clear, however, there are times where the dial hands can get in the way of the subdials, making them less functional at certain times.

There’s a couple of features that seem to be more useful to a diver than just an every day person, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This watch can withstand water pressure up to 300 feet. While you may never find yourself 300 feet underwater, this water resistance assures that this watch can survive a trip in the pool if need be. It’s rotating bezel is also a function mainly for divers, but it also does nicely to keep track of how much time your parking meter has, or any other time keeping to the minute. Overall, these extra bells and whistles add to the overall watch without seeming like they’re tacked on. It’s also a plus if you’re looking for a good diving watch.

If your wrists are smaller than the average person, you may want to search for a smaller watch, because this one is quite large, and may weigh your wrist down when you’re standing up, which can lead to some discomfort. You may also want to adjust the length of the band accordingly, for the band might be a bit too loose for you.

The large case of this watch may turn off people with smaller wrists, but it’s largeness hints at it’s durability.

Overall, the Invicta 1441 is a great watch that can function as a stylish sports watch or a diver’s watch. It’s combination of form and function makes it a watch that can be worn everywhere.

Pros:

  • Durable steel case
  • Useful Functions
  • A good look for both formal and casual occasions

Cons:

  • Uses a different numeral setup on the face may not be for everyone
  • Large watch that may not be good for smaller wrists
  • Heavy
