If Aquaman fought a Rolex...

With apologies to FrankJ... I found this on


To be perfectly clear, when we call this fine Invicta watch “the Aquaman of timepieces,” we don’t mean to diss. Somehow, the blonde Super Friend has been tagged as the superfluous one, the pinky of the mighty SF fist, the Jar-Jar Binks of the tights ‘n’ capes set. But how many of you remember his exploits in the tale “The Ice Age”, when Aquaman lured the evil Iceberg Head into a trap with chocolatey Hostess cupcakes? Let the jaded among you taunt and scoff, but we hail Arthur Curry as a true hero, always welcome round our Hall of Justice.

As is this watch. Both the Invicta Automatic Pro Diver G3 and Aquaman are handsome, rugged, water resistant to 200 meters, and modeled after a Submariner (one created by Rolex, the other by Marvel). But, dare we say, the Pro Diver is even more powerful than the King of Atlantis. Precise Swiss construction is housed in a stainless steel case. The black face features Tritnite luminous hands and markers, an anti-reflective mineral crystal, a date display, and a unidirectional black bezel with white markings. And the Pro Diver needs no winding or battery. It uses your natural motion to wind itself, kind of the way a hydroelectric plant generates electricity from the rise and fall of the sea.

Unlike Aquaman, the Invicta Automatic’s public image is impeccable, making it one of the best-selling and best-reviewed men’s watches on land or sea. If only it could talk to fish..."

There have been other hilarious descriptions on said woot, but I jsut couldnt resist that one. Oh and I happen to own that watch, and it's half decent.
