I bought Invicta watches for my wedding party and everyone loves them and still wears them today. I daily one of two Invicta automatics or a Seiko 5 automatic (mostly at the gym).

Seiko 5s are great budget watches, take a beating, and they are pretty accurate out of the box.

Invicta is just meh imo. Not worth the money when you can get a nice citizen for the same price. Invicta just make massive diver watches, Its more of an accessory than a watch I think.
Several Invicta watches actually use Seiko and Citizen movements. The one I showed you the other day has a Seiko movement. It's the most accurate automatic I own lol.

I have not been pleased with the Eco Drive. I have a $600 paper weight because the movement died on my titanium skyhawk. Also, I have a battery powered Citizen watch that keeps burning through batteries. Two different watch makers have told me it is likely a dying movement.

My wife did get me a Citizen chronograph that I wore for 3 years and I beat the **** out of it. That is a great watch. I don't trust Citizen's more complex watches though... They've all just died on me.

They have pricier models. I have an Invicta diver watch with a metal bracelet and a Swiss movement and it was about $200. It's also taken an absolute beating.
