The Invicta DC Comics ‘Joker’ dive watch

If you have an extra $298 burning a hole in your pocket and you’re looking for something green and purple to waste it in, today is your lucky day. Amazon has the Invicta DC “Joker” watch for a mere $298. It’s the one with a silicone wrist band. If you want a metal wrist band that will snag the hairs on your wrist, that one is $332.75.

I don’t know why you would want a metal wrist band. You would need to have Alopecia, or you’re willing to shave your wrist on a semi-regular basis.

Invicta claims this piece of linear time art is a dive watch. I’d need to hold one to believe that. Before wearing one on a recreational dive to the Mariana Trench, I’d need to make sure the bezel doesn’t turn clockwise. Authentic dive watches have bezels that only turn counter-clockwise. If the bezel turns in both directions, it’s not a dive watch. If it turns in both directions, you might accidentally move it clockwise and lose track of how long you’ve been underwater, breathing compressed air. That’s an excellent way to earn a trip to a decompression chamber. No thanks.

If I had this watch, it wouldn’t be to use SCUBA diving. It would be to show the world how cool I am.
