To tell you the truth, even though my SO isn't what you'd call "petit," I thought this watch was going to be somewhat smaller than it turned out to be. However, even though I think it looks rather weird on him, he likes it, so who am I to criticize?
Aesthetics aside, this is a really nice, functional timepiece. For one thing, I was pleased to observe that, unlike its box, the parts for Invicta Men's 1107 Pro Diver are Swiss-made (I couldn't find anything about where it's assembled but I'm willing to give Invicta the benefit of the doubt). And it comes with instructions for setting it up that an owner can actually understand, no small thing in these troubled times of opaque user instructions--a plus!
The Invicta includes a three-function (seconds, 1/10 seconds, minutes) chronograph (i.e., "stopwatch" in plain English), that's non-problematic to use (although it would have been nice if the watch's second hand were a sweep second hand). Given that it's a diver watch, there's also a diver's scale. This particular model displays the date only; no day or month.
Given the size of the dial, it would be kind of silly if the numbers weren't easy to read--rest assured that they are, including in dim lighting. The Invicta is, of course, water-resistant.
All in all, a very well-made timepiece; unfortunately, my SO isn't a diver so it won't be seeing any underwater use. The Invicta, despite its size (I have a hard time getting past that...personal prejudice, I guess), looks good, too. Given Amazon's price at the time of this review, the Invecta Men's 1107 Pro Diver is, quite frankly, a steal for a watch of this quality. Excellent value for an excellent watch.
