    That's not a watch this is a watch! The Invicta Hyromax!!!! When you go to a "Watch Convention" you want to make sure your packing a real watch. If your sitting on the beach with your babe, no punk will be kicking sand in your face when he sees the "Hydromax". If your at the pub throwing down a few frothy's and boys start talking about size. Pull out the "Hydromax" that will quash all size conversations, as size does matter. Seriously though, if anyone owns a "Invicta hydromax" it's bordering on the ridiculous. A homage watch based on the "Rolex deep sea challenge" made for James Cameron's deep see Submarine adventure. The Invicta watch company were the only company to at least try to make one that is a homage of the Rolex, I'll tip my hat off to them for having a go. Note the size compared to a normal a 39mm Casio watch and the weight. hydro.jpg weight.jpg

    That's a wrist clock. Not wrist watch.

    You could KO yourself with that hunk o steel, try not to trip over while wearing it, I can see long term health effects from lugging that around on your wrist lol

    Waltham watches always using IIII instead of IV Roman Serif. Thus giving more optical balance and symmetry of the clock. Any other reason?
    I know that symmetry always goes along in the clock world.

    My rather well worn 911, 145.036 Flightmaster from 1972/73, in very loved condition, about due for a day spa at Bienne, taken the band off for a much needed clean, also managed to lose the winding crown last wear,............really not happy bout that.
