Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Last week, I ordered the new Invicta 1773 Pro Diver watch. Its a solid, lovely watch and not expensive. It can be yours for less than $100 on the internet and I believe that you, like me, will be happy with your purchase. I can't tell how long the watch will last or how hard (expensive) it will be to replace the battery. But as a purchaser online, I'm very happy with its look, what seems to be quality manufacturing and layout. I got the blue one, but I believe there are a number of other colors to be had

Invicta as a watch company was founded in 1837 in La Chaux-de-fonds, Switzerland and currently carries 5 brands of watch currently: S Coifman, Activa, Activa Kids, Potger-Piertri and Poseidon. The watches are all pretty, fairly priced and very functional.

When I asked a friend that knows watches, he remarked that Invicta is known to make a pretty good watch for the price but that the prices always seem discounted.

Going to Invicta Watch's website, I found a list of MSRPs for their watches with prices stretching from $200 - $2,000. This particular watch has a MSRP of around $495 but a quick search online reveals prices at less than $100.

The watch is heavy, a nice weight that reminds you it is there without bothering you. The band (22 mm) is metal (and, apparently, gold but not sure how it would be gold at this price) but it does not catch arm hairs. It slots neatly beneath a cuff for a dress shirt and looks sport but professional. The clasp is a fold over with a safety and locks securely. The bezel of the watch is easy to manipulate and intuitive. The case of the watch is 44mm with a thickness of 12 mm. It is apparently water resistant to 200 meters. That's pretty deep...I'm a diver and the deepest I've ever gone was 145 feet down.

The watch is a large one...but at 6'1", I'm kind of a large one myself. If you have a thin wrist or are a small person, this may not be the watch for you. If you like a bigger watch, I think you'll love this one.
