My Invicta 5997 II Collection Review

The main attraction of the Invicta 5997 II Collection is, obviously, its unique skeleton design. The watch is entirely mechanical and must be hand wound in order to keep time. Now, I know that sounds bad, but it’s really not difficult to do, and the instructions that come with the watch are very clear on how to wind the watch properly. Once you get the hang of it (even if you’ve never done it before) you won’t even notice doing it. Plus, the watch is actually fairly accurate, and if you keep it wound then it should only be off a few seconds every week.5997 II Collection Case Back

Now, as I said above, the entirety of this watch is designed to give you the maximum ability to see every part inside this watch, and to be frank…It does a good job. The dial is totally invisible, the back is an exhibition back. The resulting watch is one that you can see almost totally through. The windows are made out of flame fusion crystal, so they’re very scratch resistant and should hold their sheen for a long time.

The hands are luminescent and are easy to distinguish against the background, so you shouldn’t have much trouble ever reading the watch.

The Invicta mechanical watch’s case is totally stainless steel and is definitely heavy duty. The band is large and easily adjustable and is secured with the standard fold over clasp. The stainless steel design really is beautiful, especially since it contrasts so well with the skeleton watch face.

My Verdict of the Invicta 5997 II Collection

All in all the Invicta 5997 Mechanical Skeleton watch is a pretty solid piece, and you won’t find anything else like it, so if you’re into it then I’d recommend getting it. It’s very fairly priced, it’s accurate and easy to read, it’s heavy duty and reliable and the only real flaws are negligible at best. The only thing to be wary of is if you plan on swimming with this watch on, cause you’ll want to make sure you get a feel for the screw down crown before hand.

Well that’s all I’ve got for now. WhatWatches.com is constantly being updated with new reviews and guides and stuff, so I encourage you to check back here every once and a while; you just might learn something!
