Greetings again, if you have advice on which Invictas to buy and which ones to avoid please add to this discussion. I am a silicone strap sceptic not by experience, but by review and wonder if I am missing out on a world of watches. Feel free to share your experiences with silicone and leather strap Invictas here.

Silicon does not bother me. If you don't twist it in a knot like the idiot in the video they'll pretty much last forever. No dry rot and pretty comfortable to wear. Nice warm weather straps as well. A lot of Invicta watches have proprietary silicon straps. If you really like a watch and it has the silicon on it, I say go for it!

:yes:
Poking fun aside, I've never had an issue with silicone, poly is a whole nuther ball game, don't get me started!
I'll always try to go the bracelet route but when the only option is silicone, it's a buy & wear it right away choice.
I have a problem WIT Leather sometimes, it may be too short for my fat wrist or just plain uncomfortable.:wink:
