Water resistant to 660 feet (200 M): suitable for recreational scuba diving
A clean black dial distinguishes this durable, dark-hued Invicta Men's Pro Diver Collection Coin-Edge Swiss Automatic Watch. A polished stainless steel band joins to a durable stainless steel case that's topped by a black, ion-coated, unidirectional coin-edge bezel that is imprinted with white indexes and Arabic numeral minute indicators in increments of 10. The striking black dial is protected by a scratch-resistant, sapphire-coated window, showcasing luminescent geometric hour indicators that complement luminescent, silver-tone hands. Small white minute markers and a date window at the three o'clock position complete the look of the visually appealing dial. This Swiss-automatic diving watch is water resistant to an impressive 660 feet (200 M) and is presented in a yellow Invicta gift box along with a buffing cloth.
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).

Unfortunately, the movement is not good. Over the past half year, or so, it has not held time well. It takes less than 24 hours of no motion for the movement to stop. The movement in the less expensive model typically ran a bit fast, but only a couple of minutes a month.
Mine might be a dud. While certainly very inexpensive compared to the Submariner, it is still a couple of hundred bucks. I can get a Seiko for the same price.
What I can say is that they make some very nice watches for the price - and this Swiss-auto Pro Diver is no exception.
I would prefer a (synthetic) sapphire crystal. That would be much better than the "Flame Fusion". Practically speaking, you can't scratch a sapphire crystal - you can scratch (or pit) a Flame Fusion crystal, though it is reasonably hard.
Would also be nice if the band included a diver's-extension, but certainly not necessary.
Amazingly the Sellita SW200 movement is running at +/- 0 seconds per day! (with no regulation)
NOTE: This is RARE and should not be expected, but nice to know that the Sellita movements can perform this well. I have another Invicta with an SW200 movement that is also very consistent. The only other watch that I have had run +/- 0 was a COSC certified chronometer (again - that is RARE even for COSC certified chronimeters).
August 7, 2013. After numerous emails back and forth, I was able to resolve the registration issue because of an employee by the name of Celeste Medina. She was extremely helpful and fixed the problem. By the way, the watch works extremely well and I have to admit that at this point I am satisfied. What will happen if I have an acutal warranty issue may be something else.
Like so many others the customer service leaves a lot to be desired. I have to pay 77.70 to have the crystal replaced or wear it like it is. I was told by customer service if the crystal was scratched it would be covered under warranty but since a piece fell off inside the watch it was my fault. I will never buy another invicta product and highly recommend others do the same. I am really surprised amazon continues to sell invicta products when they read the number of customers having the same problem and invicta fails to stand by their products.
The watch has a Sellita SW200 Swiss high caliber movement which is almost an exact duplicate of the ETA 2824, as a matter of fact Sellita used to handle some work for ETA. High caliber automatics tend to be more accurate then the low caliber automatics and have a smoother running second hand.
The watch is a little smaller than I prefer now days but for many this is still the size they prefer. Great classic style that is styled after the Rolex Submariner. Hands down you will be hard pressed to find a more affordable high caliber Swiss automatic, I can't. Honestly I am surprised that you can still get this watch for under $300.
ETA, the preeminent maker of Swiss automatics is gradually limiting the amount of movements they supply to outside brands and holding them for their Swatch Group in house brands and this includes Sellita in a different way, they still get some parts from ETA. Don't wait, get this watch now because it won't be long before you will not be able to get this watch for under $400, if at all. Highly recommended.
