How the Brand Was Born
The Invicta brand was born in Switzerland when a man named Rafael Picard decided to pursue his dream – to produce only the highest quality and most luxurious timepieces at an affordable price point so that even the workingmen of Switzerland would be able to own one of his watches.
Opening their doors for the first time in 1837, he endeavored to work with some of the best timepiece manufacturers in all of Switzerland – real craftsman – to produce his amazing watches using the production line techniques that had helped propel the Industrial Revolution.
The Swiss craftsman innovated new solutions together to manufacture the most accurate (the time) watches available, and because they were able to use economies of scale these watches were nowhere near as expensive as those produced entirely by hand.
Invicta men’s watches quickly became the must have timepiece for the rich, powerful, and influential in Switzerland, and it wasn’t long after that until this watch was known all over the world.
What Most People Probably Don’t Know About Invicta
However not all was sunshine and roses when it came to running a luxury timepiece business in a complex and ever-changing world.
Invicta (Latin for “invincible”) would be tested considerably, as it wasn’t all that long after their doors open for the first time that the quartz watch craze really started to take off.
Quartz watches were able to promise a level of accuracy that even the finest mechanical watches really struggled to replicate, and because it was so easy to get supplies of quartz to run these watches, they were a lot more inexpensive and even the cheapest mechanical timepieces.
This was big trouble for Invicta, as they had built their business and their brand on the back of promising fantastic watches at incredibly low prices, but because they were slow to adopt this new technology that they are brand took a bit of a beating.
Of course, this was all going to rebound as watch manufacturers all over the world started to take advantage of cheaper and cheaper manufacturing approaches that dramatically lessened the quality of the timepieces that they were introducing to the market.
Eventually, quartz technology failed almost completely because of how inexpensively they were being produced – and people started to go towards mechanical watches once again.
When the market shifted, Invicta was right there to take control once again. They reestablished themselves, pushed through a number of significant challenges during the 1970s, and re-cemented themselves at the top of the mechanical and the luxury watch industry – a position that they have held ever since.
It certainly wasn’t easy, it certainly wasn’t effortless, and at any point in time, even just a single misstep or mistake could have sent the business to bankruptcy at any point in time.
However, the Invicta name proved to be prophetic – and today they look as invincible as they ever have.
What People Love About These Timepieces
Of all the notable components and standout features that this particular brand chooses to showcase in most of their timepieces, the one “common thread” you’ll find in just about every Invicta men’s watch is the use of only the highest quality construction materials available.
Invicta has been working ever since day one to partner with suppliers and craftsman to produce watches that are worth 4 or 5 times as much as the company itself charges, instantly putting watches out on the market that are collectible pieces with a value that has already appreciated.
Obviously, watch collectors snap up Invicta pieces at every opportunity, and though the secondary market can be very competitive (with prices much higher than you would ever have seen at retail), if you have the opportunity to get your hands on a classic Invicta watch it’s almost always going to appreciate in the future.
The Invicta men’s watches are beautifully designed and use classic and traditional aesthetics in almost all of the collections. However, many of the new Invicta men’s watches showcase a much more contemporary style and design while still paying tribute to the legendary craftsmen that helped to put this brand on the map in the first place.
It’s a bit of a delicate balancing act, but it’s one that this business and this brand pulls off better than most anyone else out there in the timepiece community.
