About this deal

Lower quality execution is expected, but subtle decisions in the dimensions of different elements could have been made which make the watch look better without any additional costs.

In terms of functionality, the Pro Diver 8926OB offers a water resistance of up to 200 meters (660 feet), making it suitable for various water activities such as swimming and snorkeling. The 8926OB model, in particular, features a classic design inspired by Rolex Submariner, with a stainless steel case and bracelet, a unidirectional rotating bezel, and a date window. If anything, I hope you’ve found this review helpful in answering some basic questions about the watch. With its sleek design and reliable performance, it has become a staple in the Invicta Pro Diver collection.

This review will help you determine if this watch is perfect for your liking or the person you’re going to give it to. The first thing you’ll notice is the sweeping second’s hand that makes six steps in a second and gives a nice gliding motion.

This is a rabbit hole that allows you to express yourself, really get to know your watch, and is budget friendly. I’ve bought an Oris (mid market) in which the crown keep falling off, and its got a cheap plastic face which has cracked, so tend these days to remove the brand name and look at ‘ does it do what I want it to’.

The watch is water-resistant up to 200 meters or 660 feet, making it suitable for recreational diving. The humor wasn’t lost on them that the first BHST (Best Homage Submariner Thread) watch was a GMT homage. I side them in this regard because it looks out of place and doesn’t contribute to the appeal, not one bit. The question is why does Rolex charge 10-10X as much for a watch that objectively performs not much better? In Indian humid climate it’s my daily timing aid, it costs less than a service on the other mechanicals.

So this has been an ongoing discussion online for many years now, you’ll find forum posts from back in 2006 questioning “Are Invicta watches good? The compass rose markers (12, 3, 9) seem to be slightly better polished than the other applied markers on the Invicta Pro Diver. Mineral crystal; Screw-down crown; Unidirectional stainless steel bezel with black top bezel ring; 200 meter water resistant: Suitable for professional marine activity and surface water sports. I tend to like all the branding on this watch and think it adds its own charm to this beautiful timepiece. Indices are too small and coupled with the fact that they are applied rather than printed means they lack in size, look cheap and sacrifice potential lume real estate.

It’s the watch that got me into watch collecting and I’ve bought it 3 times already (my first one purchased 15 years ago is still running). Having said all that it really is a shame because the pro-diver happens to offer great value for the money. All the watches in this article have an automatic movement, but there’s a difference in the 9937 and 8926 movements. So, whether you're a seasoned watch collector or simply looking for a reliable timepiece, join us as we explore the exceptional qualities of the Invicta Pro Diver - Reference 8926OB. This model has an exhibition caseback that looks great as you can view the inner workings of the automatic movement.

Furthermore, the Invicta was packaged in an appealing yellow box containing user manuals and a warranty card, which only but added to my excitement over trying the watch on.May all those who possess Invicta timepieces experience the quality, value and care in every piece they create as well as the spirit of never ending possibilities in everything they do.
