Very nice automatic movement watch for the dollar
on January 17, 2014
The Invicta 9403 is a very nice automatic movement watch. It is essentially the Invicta 8926 with a different color bezel, which means it is about the best automatic movement diver's watch you can get for under $100. I have an 8926ob and love it. Great watch for the money, keeps accurate time and I get plenty of compliments. Hard to ask more from an automatic watch at this price and the 9403 should be exactly the same.
Please note the following, however:
1. The image at Amazon shows the old Miyota 21 jewel movement, but the 9403 now ships with the newer NA35A 24 jewel movement from Seiko. This is a superior movement in terms of accuracy as well as the ability to hack, that is, stop the second hand while setting time. It also looks nicer. All pluses.
2. The watchband shown in the image at Amazon is the older and sadly, superior band to what is now shipping, particularly in relation to the clasp. This should in no way be a deal breaker, as I'd gladly exchange a better movement for a slightly cheaper band, but just wanted to point this out. If you want to see what type of clasp and band the 9403 now ships with, please look at the Invicta 8926. You'll notice a less robust clasp mechanism and slightly lower quality end links. Again, not a deal breaker, but worth pointing out.
Bottom line: Great automatic watch for under $100. If you like the looks, get one and you'll be happy.
