Any advice or experience with removing a cyclops from a mineral crystal?
I know Invicta can be somewhat polarizing but hear me out.
I picked one up on Amazon prime day for $75 CAD to use as a beater watch at work. I'm not under any illusions about how it compares to a submariner and I'm not trying to fool anyone into thinking it's a Rolex. Just wanted an automatic to wear at work (warehouse) that wouldn't break my heart when it gets scratched up. It seems pretty decent so far. It has an unbranded Seiko movement (NH35A) which seems to gain 5 seconds a day so it's decently accurate. Looks decent but I can definitely tell that my actual Seiko has a much better fit and finish. You get what you pay for, but the general consensus is that these are a good buy under $100.
The one thing I kinda hate is the cyclops. I know they're iconic to the submariner design, but remember I'm not trying to fool anyone and I really prefer the look of the clean flat crystal. It's also a practical consideration since the cyclops actually obscures the date unless you're looking...
What would you recommend for a first mechanical watch under 100 (ish)?
I've been looking for a first mechanical watch for a while now and would like a few ideas of what a great first watch would be.
I dont care if its manual wind or automatic
Prefer leather or fabric straps (not metal)
Relatively simple dial (no chronographs)
RELIABLE AND LONG-LASTING (or easily replaceable movement)
Something I can dress up or down easily (hence simplicity and minimalism)
EDIT: Bought a Seiko SNK807 :)
The Shield Atlantis spec listing says, "Water resistance: 300 m (660 ft)." The back of the watch says 20 ATM. So 20 ATM = 20 bar = 200 meters = 660 feet. Thus the foot rating in the spec list is correct, yet the meter rating is not. Is this true?
