5 Most Popular WeWood Watches

The story of WeWOOD begun in 2009 in Italy, more precisely, in Florence. This watchmaker’s timepieces have no doubt been touched by the creativity atmosphere of this artistic city.  In addition to design care, WeWOOD have also shown interest in eco-friendliness. The claim to be the first who create watches made of wood which are absolutely free of toxic materials. Exotic remnant hardwoods from different corners of the world are the main source of WeWOOD’s timepieces. Not only that, they stated that they plant a tree every time they sell a watch. This initiative is the fruit of a collaboration with NGOs like American Forests and Trees for the Future. This is in fact a very interesting project which combines profit and non-profit benefits.

Invicta Watch Group and Rolex

No created thing is invincible as everyone knows already, but Invicta is the name that a Swiss has named its watchmaking company. This is in fact a very big and catchy word and which requires hard work to prove when it comes to making timepieces.

Invicta’s Ultimate Inspiration

It’s not a secret, at least for watches collectors, that Invicta copy the design of many Rolex successful timepieces. The Submariner is a great example and which Invicta replicated in one of it’s watches from the Pro Diver collection. Invicta stated clearly that it’s an homage. But many Rolex fans were furious after that the American watchmaker have released the copy of the Submariner. I don’t know if Rolex have sued Invicta Watch Group, but I don’t think that stating “homage” in the Pro Diver description, whether on the website or on the catalogue, will make the case look legit.

Invicta and Rolex: Same Class?

I have to admit that the Invicta Pro Diver is really a masterpiece when it comes to copying. Of course I’m talking about the look of the watch not what’s under the hood. The watch case, bezel, dials, band, stainless steel, polished and non polished…. Everything almost looks the same. Except for the logo and the wings of Invicta’s logo ehich you can find on the seconds sweeping hand. There is no doubt that Rolex chooses high quality materials to create its timepieces. Now when we compare the components of the two, we notice the differences. The luxury watchmaker uses a very high quality movement and which is the Calibre 3255. This is a new-generation mechanical movement with 14 patents they provide a high precision compared with others in the market. On the other hand, the movement used in Invicta Pro Diver, more precisely thr 9094, is NH35A caliber from Japan. And because the movement is the central piece of a watch there is no big need to go through other mechanical details.

Invicta watches are not Rolex watches for sure, but their low price makes them a nice deal especially for low budget watch collectors dreaming if owning a Rolex.
