I've known for some time that Amazon sells watches. Though I can claim no expertise on the subject, every now and then, I will post about a nice looking watch. It fits the mechanical theme of The Automata Blog and mixes things up a bit. It has recently come to my attention that Amazon is selling some of these skeleton dial watches at an astronomical discount. Think I'm exaggerating? Check out this example:
This is the Invicta Men's 1090 Russian Diver Mechanical Skeleton Dial Watch. Nice watch, right? This seems to be backed up by the positive reviews and product description:
The Invicta Men's 1090 Russian Diver Mechanical Skeleton Dial Black Polyurethane Watch is a functional fashion statement all on its own. Its stylish skeleton dial design adds a trendy feel to your collection. This watch begins with a prominent 52mm 18k rose gold-plated stainless steel case with a rounded rose gold-plated stainless steel bezel with a textured coin edge. The right side of the case features a large crown with a screw-down cap attached to the case with a link chain.
At $175, the price seems reasonable -- until you take a good hard look at the retail price and discount (see image below):
I don't know if this is right, but it says you save $1,219.63, which is 87% off the cost of a $1400.00 watch! Whoa. I'm suddenly thinking about getting a watch.
This is just one of at many good deals on skeleton dial watches. To save some time, I've added them to a new skeleton dial watches section in my Amazon aStore. You can also just hop on over to amazon and search for skeleton watches in the Watches Department.
