One of my biggest beefs against chronograph type watches is that too many of the world’s timepiece design team have strictly gone bipolar as far as design choices are concerned. Either the designs are either all hat and no cattle or so overworked and so packed with features that you feel you’re lugging around a toolbox on your wrist. Thankfully, the Invicta 6620 II Collection Chronograph Watch avoids these extremes.
Decked out in polished stainless steel form factor, this coin-edged bezel bedecked analog timepiece has all the classic styling of an active chronograph watch. You get the three chronograph dials in the middle. You get the sleek polish. In other packages, the 6620 II could have easily been overdone with all sorts of unnecessary bells and whistles. The overall impression such a watch typically creates is that it (and by extension its wearer) is trying to do too much. You don’t have to worry about giving the wrong impressions with this timepiece.
Balancing out the machine-like features of this timepiece is its sleek elegance and attention to detail. You can look good wearing this watch both at the beach and at a business conference. It is very versatile yet conveys a very modern and ‘with it’ look. This is definitely not a bad impression to make. Versatility, class, elegance, functionality and an overall sporty look define this timepiece. Given the fact that it is priced at less than 80 bucks, I’m surprised this watch hasn’t gone out of stock yet. Consider yourself lucky.
Swiss Quartz Movement
Considering the sleek look, the protective flame fusion dial window, luminosity and other bells and whistles this active-looking elegant watch brings to the table, you really can’t be blamed for thinking that this package would pack a price tag north of $200 or even $300. The fact that it only costs slightly less than $80 is a feat of modern watch engineering.
Well, the secret to this unit’s cost accessibility is its quartz movement. Keep in mind that this is not a design compromise. The type of quartz movement featured in this timepiece retains Swiss precision and value for money. You don’t have to worry about your watch slowing down or becoming inaccurate. You can thank its movement’s Swiss pedigree for that.
6620 II Collection Special Features
While experienced watch connoisseurs wouldn’t say this watch is a true active-wear watch that can be used at the beach or used to go deep sea diving, it definitely comes close. Packing a 300 feet
water resistance feature, the Invicta 6620 II Collection Chronograph watch won’t leave you high and dry in the functionality department. You can hit the beach and go in the water with a high degree of assurance that when you hit the surface your watch will still be working.
Of course, just like with other active-wear watches, you can’t go overboard with your activities. It is a good idea to stay well within the 330 feet water resistance rating of this watch. While it is able to resist water at that depth, you shouldn’t make things unnecessarily harder on yourself by completely forgetting about the role water depth pressure plays on overall water resistance. Still, at 330 feet, you get decent value for your money with the Invicta 6620.
Quality Chronograph at a Great price
The final verdict for the Invicta 6620 II Collection Chronograph Watch is pretty simple: it is a smart buy. If you want to look great in a wide variety of social situations and want to give the impression that you are a go getter or active person, this watch has you covered. If you like the great outdoors, you can’t go wrong with this watch. Overall, a solid value.
