Reserve collection by the U.S. watch manufacturer Invicta, offers an abundance of various watches. The series is entirely hand-made, which clearly represents all the attention and hard work, associated with its creation. With about 30 models which are further available in various colors, it is normal that the collection involves various features. However, it is fair to say that the lineage consists of mostly large round steel watches with chronographs.
As previously noted, these timepieces are predominantly quite big, with the highest number of watches with about 50 mm in diameter. If we take attention to the extremes, we will notice that the biggest model with the Reserve logo has the diameter of 56 mm. There are also a bit smaller models: nominally men’s (but actually unisex) mid-size wristwatches from the series are 44 mm wide, while two ladies’ models have the diameters of 40 mm, which is actually quite big for the products in the category.
Almost the entire collection is constructed with Swiss-made quartz mechanisms, but the flagship model, named Reserve Extreme Moon Phase has an automatic ETA 7751 movement. A large number includes a chronograph feature, and the most precise of them can measure up to 1/10th of a second. All the cases are produced out of surgical grade stainless steel (some with ion or gold plating), and in most cases, they are paired with the matching steel bracelets. Exceptions to the rule are made with the combination of steel, poly-urethane and leather.
Few of the models have unidirectional bezels, while others incorporate aesthetically appealing jewelry rope design. It is also important to note that most watches from the Reserve collection usually have impressive water resistance of 200 or 300 meters. In some instances, these models are water proof to 500 or even 100 meters below surface.
