Subscribers to Invicta Watches’ “The Movement” e-newsletter are apprised of a very strange weekly phenomenon: every Sunday, a crate of Invicta’s timepieces falls out of a delivery van and its contents are made available at deeply discounted “street” prices! Although The Sunday Run is a weekly occurrence, it is not known in advance exactly which models will be jettisoned until the Sunday of the event, so subscribers must regularly check their newsletters for more information about the “accidents.”
On Sunday at midnight Eastern Standard Time, Invicta e-newsletter subscribers can purchase these “contraband” watches until 11:59pm or until the stock runs out. It is advisable for subscribers to check The Sunday Run site at midnight or as close to midnight as possible, as the timepieces have been known to sell out in as few as 10 minutes.
Typically, only one Invicta watch model is offered, but there have been occasions where multiple styles became available. Past styles offered during The Sunday Run have been:
- The Reserve Excursion Flex Model 6266, a 53.5mm four jeweled professional Swiss made 1/10 second chronograph in a solid stainless steel case with 18 CT gold plating and water resistant to 200 meters. Usually sold for upwards of $400, it was offered on The Sunday Run for $79.
- The Speedway Chronograph Model 3644, a 44mm professional quartz chronograph in a solid stainless steel case with 18 CT gold plating and water resistant to 200 meters. Retails at over $300, it was offered on The Sunday Run for $63.
- The Pro Diver SCUBA Chronograph Model 0077, a professional chronograph 48mm in a surgical grade stainless steel case with 18 CT gold plating. Retails at approximately $600 and offered on The Sunday Run for $99.
Recently, the proceeds from The Sunday Run were donated to The Emmaus Medical Mission through The Invicta Care Foundation. With the help of the funds donated from organizations like The Invicta Care Foundation, The Mission provides desperately needed medical care and supplies to impoverished residents of Mindo, Ecuador. The operational expenses of Invicta Care are entirely paid for by The Invicta Watch Group, so that Invicta Care can use 100 percent of monies donated to aid philanthropic organizations in their efforts to create a better world.
The Sunday Run deals are only available to subscribers of “The Movement” e-newsletter. All watches come with a comprehensive 1-year warranty from the date of purchase, with repair and service information also provided. The Platinum Plan 4-year extended warranty is also available for purchase. The next Sunday Run is scheduled for January 1, 2012.
