Screw Down Crowns: Many Invicta watches are equipped with a screw down crown to help prevent water infiltration. This is most common on our Diver models. In order to adjust the date and/or time on such a watch, you must first unscrew the crown before you can gently pull it out to its first or second click stop position. To do this, simply rotate the crown counterclockwise until it springs open. When you have finished setting the watch, the crown must then be pushed in and screwed back in tightly. Not doing so will cancel the water resistance of the watch and will void all warranties from the manufacturer. Overall, this process should not require a lot of effort or force.
Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).
With its most inspired creations yet, Invicta demonstrates its technical and design prowess, offering timepieces of style for extreme value.

On a slightly lower note, this is a replacement for an identical watch which was unacceptably inaccurate. ( lost a full minute every day ) I contacted Invicta for warranty service and was quite put off at their response. Not only would I have to pay to ship the watch to them (expected), but they wanted me to include a $28 MONEYORDER to pay for return shipping. When I questioned the excessive shipping cost, I was told, " Well, that covers the INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING to the factory. And, the repair could take up to 90 DAYS" In other words, they had no Stateside repair facility! So, I would have to pay about 2/3 of my purchase price and wait 3 months to get a factory-defective watch repaired. UNACCEPTABLE!
At this point, I contacted Amazon and they took care of me, quickly and effectively. I LOVE AMAZON !
The Citizen Miyota 21 jewel movement rivals Swiss automatic movements for a fraction of the price. If it has any weakness - it is in the small power reserve - losing it's mainspring energy with less than one day off the wrist. IF not worn everyday- it should be put on a programmable watch winder or manually wound. The second hand will not "hack" with this movement. A date (complication) window shows at the 3 o'clock position. It must be manually adjusted every February and other 30 day months.
The 43mm (with crown) 316L brushed stainless steel case wears comfortably on the wrist. The case lugs are modestly curved to accomodate wrists of all sizes. The new model (larger) gold plated screw down crown looks elegent as it contrasts the case.
The blue dive bezel - unidirectional 120 clicks around - is scalloped like the Omega Seamaster and is a departure from older model 8928's which flaunted a Rolex like "coin edge" bezel. Under pressure from Rolex it was changed by Invicta two years ago. The blue enamal is vey scratch resistant - the numbers more copper color than gold.
The Mineral Glass crystal is scratch resistant - but not nearly as much as a more desirable sapphire watch face (imprinted only by diamond) which could double the cost of the watch. Mineral glass is less prone to chipping or shattering than a sapphire crystal. The display watchback is also mineral glass - displaying the undecorated Miyota automatic movement. Mineral glass backs are less likely to cause skin irritation than a stainless steel backed case.
A date magnifier (Cyclops) at the 3 o'clock position carries on the Submariner theme. The gold watch hands contrast wonderfully with the Invicta blue dial. The LUME off the watch hands and number positions is modest - both in brightness and longevity as compared to more expensive dive watches. A "winged" Invicta symbol decorates the counter - balanced side of the gold second hand. An elegent "INVICTA" product name is embossed on the left side of the case. The watch is rated as a Professional Diver 200M (660 feet) water resistant.
The comfortable two tone stainess steel pinned link bracelet is worth the price of the watch. Solid end links, rounded flexible wrist links set off the gold plated center links - all made to look like the Rolex Oyster bracelet. The bracelet's gold center links are the only 23k gold plating prone to scratching. The foldover adjustable double safety clasp uses pins as well. There is no wetsuit deployment clasp as found in more expensive watches.
Rated 5 Stars because of value and features, the Invicta 89XX series of Professional Dive Watches has kept the company in the forefront of automatic movement watch manufacturers. No one can touch Invicta in the $100 area Pro-diver price range. Fit, finish, design, value and quality cannot be beat. This IS the leader in its class. Those desiring a Swiss made watch with Sapphire crystal and heftier bracelet should first look at the Invicta 9938 for about threetimes the price.
[This review replaces an earlier effort for the same watch.]
It does have:
1) the "8928" engraved on the case back
2) the same ASIN number "B000EIA0LW" on the cardboard box as shown on the product page.
But, it also has a coin-edge style bezel; the one in the picture is a scalloped design. I actually like the coin-type bezel more, but I'm unsure as to whether the picture on the product page is outdated and the coin style is being used now, or vice versa.
It also was missing the new plastic coverings that my other Invicta watches [I have a few others], as well as the usual polishing cloth. It had some finger-print like smudges on the crystals as well. It did have the "MSRP" tag, which had what appeared to be a coffee stain on it...so I concluded it might not have been a new watch. It is working and keeps excellent time [I wound it up manually, which you can do with the Miyota automatic movement on this watch...and I have it ticking away right next to my 2304 "bling" diver], so I decided to keep it.
The blue & gold colors on this watch complement each other nicely...I really like the combo...kind of like the Cub Scout colors I had on my uniform when I was a kid ;-).
The instructions might confuse some people, so here are the 3 positions you need to know for the crown once you unscrew it from its locked down position:
1) unscrewed, it can be manually wound, in one direction [clockwise}...20 to 30 half-turns seems to be good to get it through the night.
2) pulled out one small stop, the day can be advanced by turning the crown towards you.
3) pulled out one larger stop, the time is adjusted by turning the crown.
I will upload some pictures of my watch over the next few days so others can see what they *might* be getting...or might not...
