Not a bad price atall. This is not the OB (old bezel) style but rather the newer style. If you don’t mind that then this is a good deal IMO. Usually £92.


PRO DIVER: Plunge into any horizon using the steadfast guidance of the Invicta Pro Diver. Stylishly classic, internal workings are forged with variations of bold movements. Built with confident prowess, the fortitude with which these timepieces function makes the Pro Diver the quintessential in performance.

Invicta 8926 - A distinctive look The round silver-tone stainless steel case displays a unidirectional rotating bezel with silver-tone chapter markers. “INVICTA” is etched into the left side of the case and a very special exhibition case back reveals the automatic movement from within. The round black dial displays luminous Tritnite hour markers trimmed in silver-tone at all hour positions except 3:00. Silver-tone hour and minute hands show Tritnite filling. The silver-tone seconds hand exposes a Tritnite tip and the Invicta logo. A magnified date window appears at 3:00 and “JAPAN MOVT” displays at 6:00. This function is propelled by a Japanese NH35A Automatic movement. The silver-tone stainless steel bracelet features satin brushed outer links with polished inner links for a sleek look.

Cool
Ordered! Looks to be a great watch for the price, and it’s automatic/self wind, none of this quartz crap! Been looking at buying an Invicta watch for a while as they seem to have a long history, seems like a good watch to take the plunge on, thanks OP!

Why is quartz 'crap'? I've had various quartz, eco-drive, solar, automatic, etc, etc, watches over the years, and the ease of putting a watch on that hasn't stopped because you haven't worn it for 5 minutes makes it a winner for me.
17% of reviews one or two stars (pins falling out, not waterproof, very poor timekeeping, quality control issues, etc).

Not keen on those odds, personally.

And not to forget having to unscrew the crown every week to put the time right.
Maybe ‘crap’ was the wrong word to use there, indeed they keep accurate time and saves you having to set them on each occasion you wear them but if you have a lot of watches, that’s a lot of batteries to replace! Unless you pull out the crown, which isn’t recommended as moisture/dust can get in.

I just think automatic/mechanical/solar etc movements offer much more in a timepiece and much more has gone into them. The introduction of quartz watches almost ruined the proper mechanical movements due to the fact they were so cheap to make. I think if you have an interest in horology and the history of watch making and brands then quartz doesn’t really offer much in a watch.

Also, I like the sweeping seconds hand!

That's not entirely surprising given that the cheapest new U-boat watch is around 23x the price of this!

Well yes but the way these watches are always 70% reduced is a bit misleading; I honestly thought the one I bought retailed at $1500. I now know that Invicta is one of those companies that makes up those prices so they can then sell them for much less at a "huge discount". I now know that if its too good to be true it probably is...... At least with my U boat I know that the movement is decent and it should last a long time.
"stylishly classic... Confident prowess ... forged with variations of bold movements... Fortitude (of) function... Quintessential in performance..."
What is that person who wrote this smoking? 🤤
I want it as well! 😄 😄 😄

Amazon lately is one of the biggest "culprit" for massive nonexistent discounts.
Sadly... Bargain culture is truly here.

the Invicta uses a Seiko NH35 movement and is very reliable.
This is widely recognised as a bargain automatic watch given the movement it contains
Bought recently at Amazon for £42 - it WILL come down again!

I have 20+ watches and agree with this

only 5 of the 20 are self winding and these are the ones I just the most, because, by the time I get round to sticking a quartz on, the batt has gone flat, so it means taking back off and sticking a new batt in - much easier just to wind.

Mind you - love my quartz (wouldn't have them otherwise).

I've got watches for the look, watches for movement and watches for functionality!

But what I like best about mechanical, screw down crowns, screw backs, is that you know you will most likely never have to take the back off, which means (such as with a watch like this), you should never need to compromise the water tightness of the watch
Got this recently when it was £62.23 so has been cheaper, however, sent it back to heavy and thick also the adjustment on the screw down crown was a bit hit and miss. Going back to quartz
