The MSRP seems exaggerated considering a quick search the watch reveals it can be bought for less then $200. But if this is the watch of your dreams, then this is the BEST price!

I got this watch on woot a while back. LOVE this watch.
No, it's not for everyone. Small wristers may not like this one.
The crown pointing to my wrist has never bothered me, YMMV.
The BEST part:
I get compliments all the time on this watch, it's a great conversation starter. A celebrity I met even asked me where he could get one... made me feel pretty cool.
The BAD part:
The watchband will age. I got my watch in 2010 and a few months ago the loop keepers (the small loops that hold the strap to the watch) broke. No big deal, right? Called Invicta and was told it would be like a dollar per loop keep. I got 6. Be warned: It took 2 months for them to arrive and 3 of the 6 were not the same as the others for whatever reason. Considering it took 2 months to get them I didn't try to correct the issue.
The WORST part:
By the time I got the loop-keepers on the watch, I noticed that the band hand been developing micro-cracks all over the place (due to age), like you'd see on an old tire. I was told by Invicta that I could buy a replacement band for about $60. Not worth it considering the watch is $70.
I've retired the watch till I can find an aftermarket bracelet to replace the old band on there now.
I am tempted to buy this one though! Only $10 more than the band alone!
Oh, and Happy New Year!!!

Country of origin? Probably Chinese, not made in the Russian Republic.
