Overall, an excellent watch
, September 11, 2010
This review is from: Invicta Men's 9310 Pro Diver Collection Swiss Quartz Watch (Watch)
Not having about $10,000 USD to splurge on a Rolex "Submariner", I decided to, at least, have the look of one by purchasing an Invicta "Pro Diver".
I had previously owned the Invicta "Pro Diver" that used the Citizen Miyota calibre 8215 automatic movement, but was VERY disappointed by it. Aside from gaining about 1/2 minute per day when it was new, after three years of daily wear, the movement became so dirty that it just froze up and would not run. That watch wound up in the trash.
So, I replaced it with this Invicta "Pro Diver" that uses a SWISS Ronda 715 analog quartz movement. I've had the watch for about two months so far and can not notice any error in its timekeeping!
One annoying problem with it, however, was that the jumping second hand was landing BETWEEN the second marks instead of on them...VERY distracting and annoying. A watchmaker friend of mine was able to correct the problem for me, but I would STRONGLY urge Invicta to have whoever is assembling these watches for them do a better job of attaching their second hands. I want the second hand on any analog quartz watch I purchase to land EXACTLY on the second marks...not between them.
Anyway, if second hand alignment is not an issue for you, then I think you will really like this watch. It is VERY accurate and with its screw down crown is water resistant to a depth of 660 feet so there will be no problem if you dive, swim, or just shower while wearing it. I notice that in a crowd this watch tends to attract the admiring glances of people who will assume you spent a fortune on it.
