bought from "beyond the rack" an invicta watch - not impressed.

so, i bought from BEYOND THE RACK an Invicta Pro Diver 8932.

the band and casing seem very high quality.

but the second hand motion is 1 tick/second, whereas the description was "sweeping hand"

also... the ticks are not uniform... one tick will be like 4 degrees, and the next one would be 8 degrees (give that each tick should be 6 degrees).

also... if i jerk the crown back and forth, the minute hand will jiggle...


already paid $11-12 for shipping... their packing slip here says another $10 to ship back for "not as described" reason...


What should i do?

I'd return it, better to eat the $22 than keep a $100+ watch that you won't like.

Invicta is a hit and miss brand.

automatic watches 'sweep' quartz tick. ...Invicta makes too broad a quality of watch, they have $50 watches, and $1500 watches.

Gravity can affect the degree of the tick if the mechanics are not strong enough to support the weight of the hand

if you dont like the watch, return it.
