Is this the world's best watch?

Gotta look at the specs friends. Quartz movement (very cheap to produce ), no water resistance, we don't know how the band will hold up.. for a few bucks more the watch I suggested..

300metre water resistance, automatic mechanical movement made by Seiko and used in many watches 10 times the price ... The reviews of the watch I suggest has outstanding reviews over a period of over 10 years ... It's a watch that is comparable to watches costing thousands of dollars... To buy at $120 was the bargain if the century .. even at a few hundred dollars it's a steal.

300m water resistance though? Most of the watches that use that as a selling point end up dying a slow death in the shower.

I don’t understand how watches are 300m water resistant. Resistant is NOT water proof, it means it can handle splashes and rain etc... so how do metres count in terms of resistance? Unless that means the glass won’t crack until 300m etc...?

The watch I'm staying is long proven, well reviewed. It would last Armageddon.

Good explanation

and to re-iterate...

"Watches and humidity – the real foe!
Please note all watches, even those with 100m+ water resistance, should be kept away from humid shower and spa conditions. Although these watches are watertight, they are not necessarily resistant against humid/hot air which can permeate the watch and allow moisture into the movement."

Agree the heat can also cause any oils within the movement to internally cloud up the display. Theoretically though a waterproof watch should withstand the shower or spa.

But your watch isn't waterproof, it's water resistant. There is a difference.

Water-resistant: able to resist the penetration of water to some degree but not entirely.
Water-repellent: not easily penetrated by water, especially as a result of being treated for such a purpose with a surface coating.
Waterproof: impervious to water.

That watch in the OP is $166 at the moment.. if you didn't procrastinate you could have bought for $118.70 drive away.

I procrastinated because my Citizen EcoDrive H570-5024251 is better.

Funny man!

Invicta make a few decent watches ... Their grand diver and pro diver watches are as good as any.. yes the other models are a little out there but there are a few good lines.

Buy one and let me know. Mine is awesome for the money.

Can you honestly tell me a Rolex is good value for money? They are finished 10% better but cost 1000% more. Watch a few YouTube comparos and reviews , the Invicta holds up to any test.
