INVICTA

PRO DIVER

INVICTA PRO DIVER

Invicta is an American based company, though their watches are made in China.

But what is important to note is the automatic movement is Japanese. Seiko.

Movement

The Seiko calibre is the NH35A, 24 jewel movement. It has shock protection, hacking, hand-windable and a power reserve of 41 hours.

This movement operates at 21600 bph.

Some of the known brands that use this movement are Invicta, Seiko, Vostok, Lum-Tec, Spinnaker.

Case

Invicta’s Pro Diver (0420) has a 45mm titanium case that is 14mm thick.

On the back side is a screw down, see-through case back which is of mineral crystal.

Over on the face, there is a mineral crystal (this is the glass that covers the dial) and a uni-direction titanium bezel with a black insert. A luminous dot sits at the top/zero position.

Dial

The black dial is absent of numbers but has luminescent markers to mark the hour positions and non luminescent minute indicators.

At 3 o’clock is a maginified date window, which is the polar opposite of many dive watches where the date is small and almost unseen.

The balance on the second hand is in the form of the Invicta wing logo, but the hour and minute hands have similarities to a well known high end dive watch. All hands are luminescent.

Notable Features

Located opposite the date is a screw down crown. It is used to set the date, hand-wind the watch if necessary and stop the second hand (hacking) for accurate time setting. It is also protected by a couple of case horns.

A link-type bracelet is used and like the case is titanium. A fold over clasp with safety secures the watch to your wrist.

Invicta Pro Diver titanium is water resistant to 200 meters , though not certified. More on certification shortly.

For less than 150 dollars it offers great value for someone looking to get their first automatic dive watch.

Note: You can get stainless steel models for under 100 dollars, though you may appreciate the lightness of Titanium in a watch this size.
