NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newman Ferrara LLP announced today that the firm filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Invicta Watch Company of America, Inc. (“Invicta”) on behalf of purchasers of the Invicta Pro Diver Series Watches (“Pro Diver Watches”). The action, entitled Felice v. Invicta Watch Company of America, Inc., 16-cv-62772-RLR, alleges violations of the Magnuson-Moss Act, a federal product warranty statute, as well as claims under Florida’s deceptive practices and false adverting laws, and common law claims for breach of express warranty.
Invicta, one of the world’s largest watch manufacturers, markets and sells the Pro Diver Watches both directly and indirectly through numerous retail partners. The Pro Diver Watches, which sell for between $75 and $250, are advertised as water sports watches, suitable for diving and serious water activity, with various models purporting to have water resistance from depths of 50 meters to 300 meters (i.e., 165 to 984 feet). In truth, the Pro Diver Watches are prone to leakage at any depth and in connection with non-marine activities where the product is exposed to water. Pro Diver Watches regularly experience condensation under the watch crystal and malfunction due to exposure to moisture. Despite years of complaints and negative product reviews by purchasers of the Pro Diver Watches who experienced this particular defect, Invicta has taken no steps to remedy the problem. This lawsuit seeks to address that failure.
Any one who purchased or owns a Pro Diver Watch and experienced a lack of water resistance may contact Newman Ferrara attorneys Jeffrey Norton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Roger Sachar (email@example.com) to obtain information about this case or learn more about their rights.
