Amazon’s “Big Style Sale” is underway (what they’re running instead of the postponed annual Prime Day) and, uh… well…
It’s underwhelming. Bit of a flop really.
But today they launched a new, separate, one day watch-sale, and it features two favorites; the Citizen Nighthawk and the Invicta Pro Diver Automatic, both at noticeably reduced prices:
Citizen Nighthawk Eco-Drive – $151.99 ($190)
One of the best values in watches available. Classic pilot watch styling, a GMT hand (so you can tell the time across separate time zones), and the movement is Citizen’s very popular, very accurate, solar powered quartz Eco-Drive movement. The Nighthawk also features one of the best bracelets you can find on a watch (well!) under $500. It has solid end-links, and a very secure precision machined clasp with a diver’s safety on it. Prices on these have jumped on Amazon in recent months. Well into the $200s. While Jomashop usually has ’em for $190. Today? Amazon has them for $150.
Invicta Pro Diver Automatic – $57.99 ($85)
Bit of a legend, this. Secret Agent looks on a cubical worker’s budget. Good feel and solid, 200m water resistance too. Nice stainless steel band and case. Automatic movement. Exhibition case back. 40mm case dial. Also looks great on a NATO strap. I still truly believe that high end Swiss watch makers should subsidize Invicta’s production of this particular watch. It’s a gateway drug if there ever was one.
Big thanks to Brian W. and Mathew H. for the tips here!
