Pro Diver Collection
Plunge into any horizon using the steadfast guidance of the Invicta Pro Diver. Stylishly classic, internal workings are forged with variations of either Swiss chronograph or 21-jewel automatic movements and willingly navigate in depths up to 300 meters. Built with confident prowess, the fortitude with which these timepieces function makes the Pro Diver the quintessential in performance.
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).

I must say that when I received the watch, I was struck by the cheezy yellow box it came in. I mean, gaudy doesn't begin to describe it, but what the heck, I didn't buy a box, I bought a watch.
When I opened the box I was awe struck by the craftsmanship of the watch case, and the dial, which I quickly examined with a loupe.
The movement is the outstandingly reviewed Seiko NH35A (Seiko 4R36 when installed in Seiko watches), so what's not to like there? A real precision movement that isn't as fancy as the Rolex, or my 45 year old Galet chronometers, but it gets the job done in fine style, with the hack feature, as well as the manual-wind feature to give outstanding reserve for idle periods.
I've only had the watch a few days, but so far, the time loss per day is about -14 seconds per day (+/- 2) so in reality the watch is repeatable w/in 2sec a day, but averages 14 sec a day slow, which CAN be adjusted. To maintain +/- 2 sec per 24hrs is better than my Rolex, and exactly equal to my Bulova Accutron "tuning fork" watch of 50 years ago. It's not as good as my Casio quartz ( Casio AMW320R 1EV Marine Ana Digi Watch ) to which I added a stainless bracelet, which manages 2 sec/month, but hey, we are talking a mechanical watch, and I'd have been happy with +/- 15sec per day!Read more ›
This was a gift for my stepson. After 3 months he noticed the marker on the dial at the 2 oclock position had fallen off, gotten wedged between the hands and the watch was unreliable. Stuff happens; i've never had a Skagen that DIDN'T have this problem.
But the fact that it broke isn't the issue.
There are 2 things about the warranty: First, it is a year warranty. This is less than 4 months old. Invicta charges you $28 for the repair - ostensibly for shipping and handling. BS. Second, it takes up to 90 days to repair it.
I've had 20 year old Seiko Kinetic's that cost less and were turned around faster.
This is unimpressive customer service. The cost of this has now gone from $89 to $117, and more if I insure it, and more with postage.
Bad consumer relations.
Further update: I sent the watch in and got a phone call that the package had arrived at Invicta without the watch in it. Now I'm out a watch. Because it was so inexpensive I didn't insure it. My fault. However, Invicta just sent me the package back PLUS the uncashed money order. Great. Now I have a money order made out to Invicta. My bank said they couldn't help me. Finally got through to Wells Fargo who of course doesn't offer a "speak to representative" option on their voice mail tree....when I finally did get through, they told me I had 3 options - i could ask Wells Fargo for a refund less the $15 fee, so I'd get back $13.Read more ›
