This is basically a slightly larger version of the 8926OB, yet smaller than the grand diver. A really nice watch for less than £80 with some fantastic reviews.

With that HUMONGOUS great Invicta branding chiselled into the watch case adjacent to the crown, it would be a blessing to be left handed. It baffles me why Invicta persist with it.

The branding on the side they tend not to show in listings.

The Invicta 9204 is £40 on Amazon UK and looks like a better buy to me

I really think they do some real nice watches and have come so close to buying one, until I see that hideous branding.

It gets a lot worse on the Grand Diver.

I'd have bought lots of Invicta's if it weren't for that hideous branding on the side.

I’ve heard rumours that it was due to a lawsuit with Rolex over the Submariner. Not sure if there is any truth in it, however it would make more sense if it were not added out of choice.
Why did they slap "professional" on the face? Is watch wearing a profession?

The 9204 has a quartz movement.

Seems like BS, plenty of other watches have the same basic design.

If you’re going to make statements with any level of conviction, it helps if you at least make the effort to research your subject matter beforehand.

The reason I stated ‘rumours’ is that I have heard/read it from various sources, but never actually seen the lawsuit itself.

I have included one such site below which refers to this ‘BS’.

That one is quartz and has a smaller diamater, this one is an automatic. That's the reason for the price difference.

Quartz is better. No need to wear every day. Just stick a Kodak pound shop battery in when it dies.

Yep it's a US brand aimed at the (huge) US mass market - not one known for it's subtlety or understated taste!
