It is very difficult to find a sporty and elegant watch rolled into one. Often you find one and not the other. Well, the Invicta Men’s 9212 Speedway Collection Chronograph S Watch is that unique timepiece that offers both. The case, band and bezel are all a two-tone stainless with a 23k gold plating.
“At over a little more than a hundred bucks it was the greatest deal of my life. I get compliments on it, especially from women, almost EVERY SINGLE DAY.”
The dial is white chronograph that offsets the gold-tone markers and there is a date display between the four and five numbers. The fold-over-clasp-with-safety will keep it on your wrist securely. It can be worn in 660 feet of water. This watch can be worn out on the town or for a game of basketball with the guys. It has very good workmanship and quality.
Many like the two-tone look and are often complimented on it. Some, however, feel it is difficult to read the time because the dial is white and the hands are gold.Also, the stem sometimes gets locked in place.

Invicta 9212 Customer Comments:
I own this watch.
If you do a web search for the Rolex Daytona and you look at a close up picture of it side by side with the Invicta Speedway you may find as I that the Invicta looks every bit as nice and some may even think better.
While all functions on the Speedway work as described, they are not the same as the Daytona and the fact is the Daytona would be the better watch for timing purposes. However, if that was really an issue with me I would want something larger (hand held) and most likely I would prefer a digital read out. And of course you have to remember the Speedway here is $129 and not $8K plus!
The watch has run flawless for me and it looks much, much better than pictured. It is rather large but I like the size and feel. I have an average wrist size and in fact had to remove 3 links and still feel the watch looks nice and is not to large for my arm.
The gold plating is very highly polished and my only concern is, as it is plating and not solid gold, will that be a problem down the road. For that reason I do not wear the watch every day or when I think I would be doing something that would be hard on any of my jewelry. However, if I had the Rolex I would not be wearing it while working with my hands either. For that matter, I have a timex for that reason. As you can not see through plating, this looks every bit as good as solid gold. If this is an issue for you, you may want to look at the all stainless version of this watch.
At this price I am very happy with my purchase and have no second thoughts about it at all. Every time I have it on I get comments on the watch. I rate this watch at 4.5 stars with the only one draw back that keeps it from getting 5 stars. The product (tritenite) Invicta uses to illuminate in the dark dims rather quickly. This is the case with all Invicta watches as to date and I always take off a half to full point for that reason alone. This may not be an issue for you at all.
Bottom line it is a fabulous looking time piece. It looks every bit as good as the Rolex that cost thousands and it has a very, very modest price. I have no second thoughts about this purchase.
- Best thing about the Invicta 9212 is it’s looks
- Keeps great time
- High quality band, gold plating shouldn’t scratch in the warranty period
- Gold plating, not solid gold
- Gold hand son white background sometimes hard to read
Invicta 9212 Summary:
Overall the Invicta 9212 is really great value. It is a great price and looks far more expensive than it is. It doesn’t feel heavy and looks great.
Alot of people buy this watch purely because it looks like a Rolex and to be honest you’d probably fool alot of people. An amazing looking watch at a pretty impressively low price, Invicta has done it again.
