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.
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).
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.
How to Use a Unidirectional Bezel on a Watch:
With the watch attached to your wrist, grip the bezel at the three o'clock and nine o'clock points and slowly twist counterclockwise.See all Product description

This is probably a matter of personal preference but the new style bezel with the scalloped edges, compared to the previous models coin edge, looks great; very modern. It also works much better than the original watch I owned.
The second hand has hacking when setting! ie. the second hand stops when setting the time.This is a feature usually only seen on much more expensive watches and was not present on my original version.
The date magnifier window is 1.5 to 2 times stronger than the previous version. I had to pull my old watch out of storage and compare the two, to make sure I wasn't remembering incorrectly (the original watch still works fine, just has severally chipped crystal).
My original Invicta Diver ran about 14 seconds fast out of the box. I was able to regulate it to around 4 seconds fast but never could get it more stable than that. This new watch, out of the box is running around 1.5 seconds fast! That is high end Swiss territory. This may change as the watch breaks in but I was amazed at the initial regulation. This would indicate to me that part of the assembly process must now include a step to regulate the watch. That or I was phenomenally lucky in the one I received.
The lume on the hands of the new watch is much brighter and longer lasting than that on the original watch. Oddly, the markers on the dial are about the same but I would consider that a step in the right direction.
Overall, some great upgrades to an already great watch!
I've been doing a little research on my new Invicta Dive watch and have discovered that the movement is the most excellent Sieko NH35A, with hacking (as mentioned above), manual winding capability and bi directional auto-winding. This probably explains why it is so well tuned out of the box, compared to the original (and not a bad movement by any means) Citizens Miyota movement, that lacked the hacking and bi directional auto-winding capability.
After wearing the watch for a month or so it did come out of regulation a bit. Dropped to about 5 seconds slow. I could almost live with 5 fast but not slow. I was able to regulate it back to the 1.5 second fast range and so far, after a couple of months, it has held to that regulation.
After 25 YEARS of excellent service I decided that it was time to put the Rolex in the safe and bought the Invicta 8926.
A couple trips to the watchmaker and he has it w/in 3 seconds a day. When I got it, the watch was loosing 20 seconds a day
I realize that a quartz may have been a little more accurate but I just wanted to stick with the automatic technology and 2-3 seconds a day is more than good enough for me.
I've only had it for 2-3 weeks but find it as advertised plus very legible at night. I've used it swimming but not diving yet.
It feels good to wear and I suspect that this watch will be with me for a very long time.
I then open the case and manually regulate the timing. And I can now achieve less than 2 seconds a day off. So I am quite happy now. (Again, YouTube got instructions how to do that)
I highly recommend this updated version of 8926 with NH35A movement. It's now identical to 8928OB except Bezel shape. Choose this one if you don't want to appear wearing a fake Rolex.
Do not make the mistake of ordering the used version like I did. I received the previous version with Myota movement. Not only it does not have hacking feature, the magnifying glass is only 1.5X and looks very cheap. Amazon should tell customer the watch they are shipping now is new version.
This watch is HEAVILY inspired by the Rolex Submariner, and pulls off the look quite nicely. The watch itself is well built, heavy (in a good way) and feels solid. The band is nice, and has plenty of links so that the largest wrists can easily be accommodated. The movement is a good quality Seiko movement, and the power reserve is adequate. The only thing that I can think of that I would change about this watch is the intensity and duration of the lume, but that doesn't make or break a watch for me, so I'm still giving this product five stars. If you are looking for a solid first automatic watch, this would be in my top 3.
