I purchased an INVICTA model 9309 (black dial) from Amazon almost 10 months ago (Dec 2010) and shortly thereafter I also purchased a very similar INVICTA model 9310 (blue dial). The 9309 arrived very quickly in less than 48 hours, but the 9310 took a full 6 days to arrive - supposedly due to Christmas season shipping volumes (the arrival should have been before a few days before Dec 25th, but the actual arrival was after the 25th). Then again, the shipping was "free" as I recall, making it difficult to ask Amazon for my money back on the shipping charges.

The watches themselves are both excellent. Both models show a high level of workmanship using quality materials, and I think they display an excellent standard of "fit'n finish" (to borrow an automotive term). They also exude that weighty sort of metallic density, typical of much more expensive mens' watches. Unlike some purchasers, I have had no problems at all with the gold plating on the bezel or on the band links wearing off. And the mineral crystal has withstood some moderately rough treatment over 10 months of frequent wear, so far without any significant scratches to show for it. Both watches have a quartz-based "Swiss Movement" and these 2 words are printed at the 6:00 mark (in a font size meant for those with very good eyes!).

Even by the high accuracy levels of most quartz-based watch movements, both the INVICTA 9309 and the 9310 seem to have kept truly excellent time over the last 10 months. My informal comparison checks against the time.gov website show deviations (with both watches erring in the fast direction) of not more than 2 seconds per week for the 9310, and maybe 3 seconds per week for the model 9309. The daily time deviations appear to be too small (< 1 sec/day) for doing meaningful "eyeball" measurements over periods of less than one week. Speaking only as a watch novice, this seems to be a very good level of accuracy for $85 watches - really, I would say it's great for any non-scientific watch. Whether the quartz movements are truly Swiss, or just a mix of parts assembled elsewhere using certain Swiss content (as some have claimed) it's clear that someone/somewhere has done a very good job with the parts at hand.

One minor problem with the model 9309 description is that it claims the 9309 features a "sweep second hand" - but this is totally untrue! The second hand moves in very distinct, discrete one second steps, like most quartz watches. There is nothing "sweeping" about it. The description also suggests that all INVICTA Pro Diver watches have either a "Swiss chronograph or 21-jewel automatic movement". I don't think the 9309 has either of these. Some descriptions claim a 43mm case diameter for the 9309, others say 40mm. I think it is 40mm without the crown, and 43mm if counting the crown.

Now I'm interested in trying an Automatic watch...

If you'd rather spend $80 than $5,000 - $25,000 to get a near replica of a Rolex Submariner, you came to the right place. It looks great, feels great, and keeps accurate time (this particular model is a Swiss quartz, so it should!) Two nits: First of all, it does NOT have a "screw down crown" for diving and I would bet submersing it completely underwater for more than a minute would kill it. The advertising is a little misleading regarding this. Like most watches, it is only water RESISTANT. Second, the environmentally friendly substance they use to make the hands and numbers luminescent in the dark is a complete failure. (Yes, I exposed it to a light bulb for hours and it didn't "take"). You cannot tell time on this watch in the dark and that is VERY disappointing. Still, for 80 bucks it looks great, keeps great time, and never needs winding.

I gave the as a gift and was very pleased with the watch when it arrived. I have a few Invicta's but they are all automatics. This one is battery powered. This makes it a bit thinner which in my opinion makes it a more comfortable watch. Looks great and if history proves correct will run flawlessly.

This is a fine watch. I bought it for my father last christmas, 12 months ago. It has held up well dispite the fact he normally punishes his watches. I have a real rolex GMT II and it is really hard to tell the difference unless you really know your stuff and are very close to the watches. Great look for a fraction of the cost. He liked it so much he bought another all-gold looking invista witht he same general look.

I read many reviews and looked at a wide range of Invicta watches before settling on this one as my choice for an everyday watch that keeps good time. I have not been disappointed. Invicta is offering some great values for people who want a nice looking watch that works well. I just bought another one (different style) as a birthday gift for my brother.

As many others have remarked, the watch looks even better in person and the presentation case is indeed impressive making for a great gift. The bevel is fully functional, and the stem screws in and out with ease and should not not break if one follows instructions and restrains from unnecessary force. The band is very nice and comfortable. I like the double latch. Most importantly, I set it to an atomic clock and it keeps very accurate time within a second or two a week.

The next time I buy a watch I will look to Invicta first. If you're wondering whether or not to give it a try, go ahead. By the way, I don't think anyone can get close to the prices I found on Amazon.

I bought this watch on Dec 2013, i was happy with it until I left it on when going inside a swimming pool.
It is suppose to be a "Divers" watch, well it got water inside and it stopped working completely.
What a piece of crap!! It's suppose to have 1 year warranty, I'll let you know how it goes.
Very disappointed, I mean it is supposed to stand up 600 feet! but just don't go to a swimming pool..

The watch arrived very quick in a small box. This is my 3rd Invicta watch I ordered from Amazon. The other two arrived in a big boxes, but I don't know why this one has a small box. This watch is Swiss movement and looks very good and very fancy.

The manufacturer indicates in his 2011 catalog that this watch comes with the screw down crown. I bought 8 of this watch from AMAZON.com and none of them came with the above feature. I hope somebody tells me the secret that hides behind this.

The watch looks great - looks well constructed - "BUT" here is my experience
I purchased this Invicta Men's 9309 -- and needed to send it back, because it would not keep the proper time, I did not need to know the reason. The watched was replaced by Amazon (in a timely manner) - because it was less than 30 day.

The second watch seemed to work -- 43 days, and then I was playing with my grandkids on the beach, they are 4 years and 6 year grandchildren -- so we never really went more than 1 foot of water.
Later I looked at the time - could not see anything - My watch crystal was full of moisture - water.
I called Invicta customer service -- it was out of the 30 day replacement warranty, but if I would send them a check for $28.00, and pay for shipping to them, they would send it to Switzerland. They said 6 to 8 weeks for it to be shipped back to me because they do not repair any watches in the USA, everything is shipped overseas for repair.

To sum this review - this 9309 watch is a from the Pro Diver Collection, water resistant to 600ft ---- my watch will sit in a drawer, and I'm not going to put another $35-$40 dollars into a watch which you can not take into the shower.
