Here is a review of my new watch, the Invicta Men’s 13047 Jason Taylor Chronograph Silver Textured Dial Two-Tone Stainless Steel Watch. This is a Limited Edition watch by Invicta and Jason Taylor. Please note this watch may be too big (Case Diameter 48mm and Case Thickness 16mm) and heavy (3 Pounds). It does worth the size and weight as it feels very solid and looks very nice and sharp.
Since I’m not a watch guy, lets learn something here.
First, this Invicta watch has Swiss quartz movement.
A quartz clock is a clock that uses an electronic oscillator that is regulated by a quartz crystal to keep time. This crystal oscillator creates a signal with very precise frequency, so that quartz clocks are at least an order of magnitude more accurate than mechanical clocks.

Second, this watch has Flame-fusion crystal. Hmm, according to the sales guy, this watch uses sapphire glass. So why is the specification say it is Flame-fusion crystal? A quick Google brought me to the explaination:
Flame-Fusion explained at the most basic level, is a synthetic crystal that combines mineral and sapphire. But above a standard Sapphire coated mineral, it cannot de-laminate, and it is far more impact resistant.

Enough with the technical terms lets see some photos. All photos taken with Nikon D7000 with 16-85mm lens.
The watch’s face. Got date, days and chronograph functions with 60 second, 30 minute and 10 hour.
Brought mine at Invicta store at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
