The invisibility watch is... kind of a big deal. Even though you only have 3 different ones (Not counting the enthusiast's timepiece and the quäken... qüacken... the q... that duck-thing) they are very different from one another. Which one is the best?Standard Invisibility watch
When activated, it will make you completely invisible for 9 seconds, with a fade time of 1 second. Cloak recharge time is 30 seconds, or you can use ammo boxes or fallen weapons to recharge it. When bumping an enemy or being hit you will ‘blink’ and remain visible while the enemy touches or continues hitting you, but you’ll nearly instantly cloak again when they stop (With the saharan spy it will take 0.5 seconds longer)
The decloak sound on this watch is... pretty undetectable by itself, almost impossible to hear with the complete set. However, the reduction of sound is so little it is not worth using the set, as the 0.5 seconds blink time will kill you more times than enemies hearing you. If you are using the Saharan spy, this is NOT the best watch to use (Well, if you like it go ahead, I don’t recommend it)Cloak and Dagger
The first thing you will see about this watch is the 100% faster recharge bonus. “A watch that recharges 100% faster? That means double the time cloaked and double the fun!!” No little Timmy, thats not what it means, because if you look carefully you’ll see in little white letters: “Cloak type: Motion sensitive” Yes, this watch only depletes if you are moving. That means you can stand still for infinite time, and your cloak WILL regenerate while standing still, visible or not. But that also means that while running normally, your cloak only lasts 6.2 seconds before you have to stop and recharge. This also means that walking slowly will deplete the meter slower. If you crouch walk, your cloak will last a whole minute (But you will probably die of boringnessness, and you will travel the same distance) Recharge time is about 15 seconds (Half the normal recharge time) but you won't be able to recollect ammo to recharge.
The blink and sound mechanics are the same as in the standard invisibility watch, so again, this watch is not worth your time if you are using the Saharan Spy set. (But again, do whatever you please)[Intromission]

- I want to use 'Your eternal reward' and L’etranger!:
Don’t use the Familiar Fez then! Its horrible. I recommend the Counterfeit Billycock, which is a hilarious spy hat, or maybe Le Party Phantom, to kill Like a boss.
- I want to use the familiar fez with L’etranger and 'Your eternal reward'!:
Seriously? Uhhh... Get yourself a Wanga prick. It works the same as Your eternal reward, but doesn’t complete the set.
But... If the first two watches were not compatible with the set... WHAT IS? *Dramatic music*The Dead Ringer
This watch SCREAMS please use me with that ugly hat. Its 3 main characteristics are the 80% improved charge rate (Which sets it at 16 seconds), the 60% “““improved””” drain rate (Cloak lasts for about 6.5 seconds) and most important, the cloak type: Feign death. Feign what? Sure, it’s a bit confusing at first, but let me explain. When activating the cloak, you’ll see nothing happens. No invisibility, no blink, no sandvich, no nothing. But thats normal. While active you have to get hit by an enemy to trigger your feign death. This will drop a fake corpse and make you invisible INSTANTLY, and absorb 90% of the hit. If that wasn’t enough, in the first 6.5 seconds of your cloak (If you pick up ammo and make the cloak last longer, these effects will only work in the first 6.5 seconds) your watch absorbs 90% of the damage you recieve (Meaning you CAN survive backstabs, full power headshots or even taunt kills) and you won't blink when bumping enemies or being hit
The biggest downside to the Dead Ringer is that it has a decloaking sound that will be heard by anyone on your server and the 2 closest servers will receive notifications that you have decloaked (AKA very loud decloaking
) Also, you CANNOT activate it if the cloak meter is not full. Keep that in mind before mindlessly going towards an enemy with a neon arrow pointing at you.
And THERE WE GO, because the Saharan Spy set will neutralize that sound, making it near impossible to hear! And if you cannot blink, you cannot blink longer, so the Dead ringer neutralizes the bad effect this set has, making it the perfect cloaking device for this set.
So from now on, I will be talking as if you were using the dead ringer. BUT AGAIN
: If you want to use a different watch, go ahead. Play however you want.
