INVICTA

Invicta watches owe much to the foresight and vision of Raphael Picard. Picard was a Swiss watchmaker who strove to create timepieces of the highest quality, utilizing the best materials and components that were available to him. It became his parallel goal to ensure that the watches he made would be affordable for the average man, thus creating a niche market for Invicta that would serve the company well.

La Chaux-de-Fonds

  • Picard founded the Invicta Watch Company in the 1930s. As his operating base, he chose La Chaux-de-Fonds, situated close to the Swiss border with France, and an established center of trade and industry. Other well-known watchmakers were also based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, including Movado, Omega, TAG Heuer and Gallet.
     

First Watch

  • In 1937, Picard created the premier Invicta mechanical winding watch. It would be followed by men's and ladies' watches crafted in an array of automatic and winding styles, but all manufactured to the strictest measures of quality and precision. This was the Picard philosophy that became the Invicta trademark.
     

'Invincible'

  • The choice of "Invicta" for the company and watch name was as deliberate as the selection of La Chaux-de-Fonds as its headquarters. In Latin, "invicta" means "invincible."
     

Challenging Times

  • During the 1970s, the rise of quartz watches almost led to the fall of Invicta, which continued to produce timepieces of impeccable quality. Competing against a very new and cheaper product proved challenging. However, the philosophy of invincibility prevailed, and Invicta was able to ride the wave of a trend that almost put it out of business.
     

Specific Marketing

  • Moving forward, Invicta strived to provide the market with new and better watches which also had distinctive features. An example is the Limited Edition Subaqua Noma with a genuine meteorite stone dial. Invicta also designs and manufactures watches for specific market sectors, like divers. For instance, the Invicta Titanium watch series with its 21-jewel movement, is water-resistant to a depth of 200 meters. Collectors are also part of the Invicta following.
     

New Ownership

  • In 1991, the family of Raphael Picard sold the company to United States-based investment interests of Hollywood, Florida, where Invicta now has its headquarters. Brands of watches that come under the Invicta umbrella include Activa, Activa Kids, S. Coifman, Potger-Pietri and Poseidon. Invicta has recorded annual sales of over $50 million

    Invincible

    Latin for 'Invicible', Invicta is led by innovation and nurtured with the consistency of quality and brand personality. Founded more than a century ago in 1837 in Chiasso, Switzerland, with the belief that supremely crafted timepieces can be offered for modest sums, Invicta holds true to this objective today. Originally crafting mechanical and automatic timepieces, Invicta, like most brands of the time all but disappeared during the quartz movement in the 1970’s.After being re-established in the early 1990's, the forward thinking energy of The Invicta Watch Group continues its brazen journey. In 2000 we focused on designing a perfectly fitting, oversized timepiece. This focus delivered the professional dive watch, the Ocean Ghost, and the iconic Lupah collection. The brand has now grown to encompass over 30 diverse collections.
