Case diameter is 39mm, not 43mm like the 8926,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invicta Men's 8932 "Pro Diver Collection" Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch (Watch)
(EDIT: Amazon now has the specs correctly listed at 37mm diameter.)
Amazon's description is wrong on the case diameter. I bought this watch and the 8926 automatic thinking they were the same size (43mm with crown). Not so, this watch is quite a bit smaller on the wrist, not as heavy(no automatic movement), and the unidirectional bezel is much more loose and cheap feeling.
The model # on the back of this watch is 8932A
The 8926 is a MUCH nicer watch and has been on sale for 70 at various times.

Yeah definitely. If you're in the market for a good automatic watch the 8926 is THE lowest you should go for. Pricewise I mean, because I can tell you the quality is on par with watches 10x the price. Now if you can spend just a little bit more I highly recommend going with the Invicta 9937. It's an upgrade of the 8926; sapphire crystal, better movement (same vibrations per hour as the rolex submariner 28,800), and some minor cosmetic improvements.
Both are excellent watches.
Also one thing to look out for on these watches is the style of the bezel. The original ones had the coin edge bezel, which in my opinion looks much better. But at one point in time I believe Rolex forced invicta to switch to the scallop design. But now they've brought back the coin edge with the newly redesigned 9937.
Yes the 8926 selling on Amazon for 55-75 is the scallop design. It's purely a matter of taste but just thought i'd let you know.

Yes... this model is smaller than the 8926. The 9307 is the quartz version that matches the size of the 8926 automatic. The 9307 also has a Swiss quartz movement instead of the Japanese movement in this model.
They are selling a version of the 8926 with the coin edge bezel again. It's the 8926OB (original bezel). It's harder to find for under $100.00, but I picked mine up for $79.99 during a recent 20% off Invicta sale here on Amazon. I actually prefer the scalloped bezel. You'd think the coin edge would look more functional and rugged, but I've found the opposite to be true. I own both versions and to me the coin edge model looks a little too fancy and screams Rolex a little too loudly. I prefer the scalloped bezel for daily wear and versatility, but that's just my own personal taste and they're both really nice watches for the money. A person who dresses nicer than I do would probably prefer the coin edge...

The description probably changed after they complained

They changed the specs after I reported it. I am editing my review to reflect that.

Smaller and lighter are plusses in my book. I have the 8926OB, and I find it way too heavy.
