If you are a serious watch collector, then it will be difficult to overlook this one. The Invicta men’s pro diver automatic two tone watch model number 8928 from Invicta watches is one great watch for the great price. It is perhaps one of the best watches you can get for this price. This watch is to behold and treasured. The looks, finish and the craftsmanship are outstanding, and you can definitely not defeat this at this price. Not only this particular watch, but overall Invicta’s 89xx pro diver series has been outstanding. Similar models of professional dive watches have kept the Invicta watch company in leading position among automatic watch manufacturers today. It is hard to find a dive watch with these many features in $100 area.
While looking at this watch, many of us will notice the Rolex like look and feel, but it certainly is not even close to Rolex in terms of pricing. Watch collectors know that Invicta watches are outstanding value for the money with classy and appealing designs. The gold plating makes this watch look fabulous. The watch has 23K gold platting on its bracelet, which goes very well with its overall look. The watch not only looks great, but also feels light on your wrist.
The Invicta 8928 features Japanese Miyota 21 jewel movement, which can be evidently seen through the clear case back of the watch. Although, some may disagree and argue that the automatic watch movement isn’t as accurate as quartz, which is true. You may experience that some automatic watches will add around 1 to 3 minutes every week, but having said that if you know how to deal with an automatic watch then you would not be disappointed with this Invicta 8928 pro diver. The Invicta watches are known to generate reliable and accurate automatic movements. After almost two decades of quartz movement the companies are still manufacturing and people are buying automatic movement watches and that alone speaks the truth about automatic watch technology. However just like any other automatic watch, this watch will also stop after 24 hours if not winded. But when it stops, you can easily start the watch by gently shaking the watch side by side or by pulling out the stem in the watch and winding it.
The automatic movements require much more care with the watches, as the mechanisms inside these watches are delicate. But for those who are familiar with the automatic movements, Invicta 8928 is one outstanding diving watch in $100 price range.
The case of this watch is made of stainless steel while the bracelet has 23K yellow gold plating. The case and the bracelet make this watch look more contemporary, fashionable and lush, more like expensive Swiss watches. The watch has a blue dial, which is quite radiant and goes very well with the color of the bezel. The dial is easy to read even in the dark. The bezel is unidirectional turning type. The case back is see-through, so you can see the movements of the watch. The date window is located at three o’clock position. The watch is water resistant up to 200 meters (around 660 feet).
Overall, this Invicta watch is certainly a cool deal mainly for its features and value. The watch has very satisfactory fitting, finish and design. You can not expect more features from a diver’s watch in $100 price range. In many terms it is just the right watch.
However a little note here, this watch also comes with Swiss automatic movement version, but the overall customer feedback reveals that it is not as good as the Japanese Miyota version. It may be true or may not be true. But one thing is for sure if you are a watch collector, the Invicta 8928 certainly is a good addition to your collection.
