Usually, high performance chronographs cost quite a bit of money. After all, you’re getting a high-precision high-quality timepiece that tells you several time measurements in a rugged case that can handle outdoor stresses. Sadly, too many chronographs focus too much on a ‘high performance’ look instead of actually being rugged enough to handle the great outdoors. Many of these timepieces have the right look but don’t necessarily have the durability and mission-critical performance that you’d expect from a chronograph. Also, many chronograph timepieces pack some sticker shock. Too many watch fans find out that they’re paying quite a premium for a chronograph ‘look.’ Well, leave it to Invicta to upend the way the timepiece industry has positioned chronographs. True to Invicta’s maverick approach to time pieces, you’re in for a bit of a surprise with the Invicta Men’s 6412 Python Collection Chronograph.

The typical chronograph design is all about performance, versatility, and adaptability. However, other design elements like its case and dials round out the picture and give clues as to the real value and capability of the chronograph. Sadly, the chronograph ‘look’ is one of the most mimicked design styles in the world of timepieces. Often, many pieces that look like they are the real deal flat out disappoint when it comes to performance. Thankfully, that’s the not the case with the Invicta Men’s 6412 Python. This timepiece is water-resistant, hardy, and, did I say it looks great?
