Where are Invicta Watches made?

Invicta watches are known for their high-quality craftsmanship and stylish designs. But have you ever wondered where these timepieces are made? In this blog post, we will explore the origins of Invicta watches and shed some light on their manufacturing process.

The Birthplace of Invicta Watches

Switzerland has long been synonymous with luxury watches. It is here, in the Swiss Alps, that Invicta's journey began. In the picturesque town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Invicta was founded in 1837 by Raphael Picard.

The company was dedicated to offering expertly built timepieces at a price that was affordable for everyone. Invicta originally made both mechanical and automatic timepieces. The Swiss watch industry has a long-standing reputation for producing some of the finest timepieces in the world, and Invicta is no exception.

The Swiss Difference

Switzerland has a rich horological history dating back centuries. The country's watchmakers have perfected their craft over generations, combining traditional techniques with modern technology. Did you know Invicta was founded nearly 2 decades before Tissot! 

Modern Invicta watches

During the 1970s the entire Swiss watch industry was effected by the 'Quartz Revolution'. Essentially reliable quartz watch movements started to take over from the more expensive mechanical watch movements which the Swiss watch brands used. Japanese watch manufacturers like Seiko and Citizen started producing large volumes of watches using quartz movements.

Invicta became a US company in 1991, and is based in Hollywood, Florida. It remains privately owned with the founding principle of affordable, quality, stylish timepieces at the forefront of Invicta ideology. Ensuring a high quality standard and evolving innovation and design is key to the continued tremendous success of the Invicta brand. Invicta still offers a collection of watches featuring the Swiss Made tag. 

A Global Collaboration of Artisans

While the birthplace of Invicta watches is Switzerland, the brand's reach now extends far beyond its borders. Invicta embraces a global collaboration of artisans, sourcing materials and expertise from around the world. Invicta watches are not merely timekeeping instruments; they are a testament to the brand's legacy. With a history spanning more than a century, Invicta has established itself as a symbol of elegance and sophistication.

The Manufacturing Process

Invicta watches go through a rigorous manufacturing process to ensure their exceptional quality. Each timepiece is assembled by hand, with every component carefully inspected for precision and accuracy. From the intricate movements to the dials and bezels, every detail is meticulously crafted to create a timepiece that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Most modern assembly is carried out in Asia which enables high quality standards but keeps production costs low, enabling the great prices of Invicta watches to be maintained.

Quality Control

Invicta takes great pride in its commitment to quality control. Before a watch leaves the factory, it undergoes a series of rigorous tests to ensure it meets the brand's high standards. These tests include accuracy checks, water resistance testing, and durability assessments. Only watches that pass these stringent tests are deemed worthy of the Invicta name.

From intricate movements crafted in Switzerland to the finest Italian leather straps, each component of an Invicta watch is carefully selected to ensure the highest quality. The brand's commitment to excellence is evident in every detail, from the precision of the hands to the brilliance of the crystals.

Perhaps most importantly Invicta ensures reliable, durable and accurate watches by using high quality watch movements (the engine of the watch) which are mainly Japanese (Seiko) and sometimes Swiss.

So, the next time you admire an Invicta watch on your wrist, remember that it was made with both precision, passion and history.

Now that you know where Invicta watches are made, it's time to experience the artistry for yourself. Whether you're a seasoned collector or a novice enthusiast, an Invicta watch is a timepiece that will elevate your style and captivate your senses.
