Classic styling and high performance add up to an outstanding sport watch for your land or sea adventures. This automatic watch, from Invicta's Pro Diver series, places a large round stainless steel case on a robust triple link steel bracelet. The black dial is designed for quick and easy read-off, even in low light conditions. It offers three-hand function with Tritnite-coated luminous hands and hour markers and a magnified date display at the three o'clock mark. The dial is capped with a resilient mineral crystal and framed by a black unidirectional rotating steel bezel with coin edge detailing. This watch is driven by Japanese automatic movement, which is visible through the see-through skeleton case back. It is rated water resistant to a full 660 feet (200 meters).
Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).
Screw Down Crowns: Many Invicta watches are equipped with a screw down crown to help prevent water infiltration. This is most common on our Diver models. In order to adjust the date and/or time on such a watch, you must first unscrew the crown before you can gently pull it out to its first or second click stop position. To do this, simply rotate the crown counterclockwise until it springs open. When you have finished setting the watch, the crown must then be pushed in and screwed back in tightly. Not doing so will cancel the water resistance of the watch and will void all warranties from the manufacturer. Overall, this process should not require a lot of effort or force.

When I received the watch, it exceeded my expectations. It looks much more luxurious in real life than in the pictures. The Invicta 8926C is a beautiful watch for the price and the quality is exceptional. Reviews I had read raised concern about the movement and the screw down crown. The movement in this watch has been updated to the NH25A, a Sieko (maybe knock-off) automatic movement. So far the movement is extremely quiet and accurate to within a few seconds a day. The mechanism self winds in both directions, is non hackable, and cannot be wound by hand using the crown. In terms of the crown, it screws open and closed smoothly, with no signs of coarseness or cross threading. The rotating bezel is extremely tight, to the point that it was difficult to rotate until I applied some light machine oil.
The watch has substantial weight and the band links are thick and solid. If I had to suggest an improvement, it would be in the quality of the clasp which is fairly light but is more than adequate to safely secure the watch to your wrist. For a little over $100, you are getting a watch that looks and feels 5x the price. There is no comparable timepiece at this price, that looks and feels like the Invicta 8926C pro diver.
With that being said, almost every automatic watch brand and micro-brand has a submariner homage in their lineup, so Invicta isn't the only one benefiting for this classic design. I just wish they would stop stamping their brand on the side the bracelet. Heck, even taking their name (and just keeping the logo on) will make this design much much more classy.
The lume is bit dull versus my SKX007 but that's expected. This is my daily beater now.
The bracelet is two tone but you can always replace it with a leather strap or another stainless steel bracelet.
Accuracy is very decent and comes close to COSC specs (even with a Japanese movement).
Anyways, if you're looking at this watch, you most likely know all about its "very (and I mean VERY) expensive, distant cousin". However, lets start with all the CONS of this watch.
My accuracy is +11 seconds / day. The rotating bezel is unidirectional (counterclockwise), fairly stiff, and is not perfectly aligned - giving me OCD chills. The cyclops is also not perfectly aligned... The threads on the screw down crown feel a little rough. And the lume is weak.
Now, despite all this, lets look at all the PROS. The fit and finish is amazing (for the price!). The case comes well polished. The steel band actually feels like its on par with one that comes on a Hamilton (or equivalent brand). The bezel doesn't miss a click. Water hasn't penetrated (I don't intend on finding out its actual limits). The printing on the dial is great. The engravings are well done. And I absolutely love the fact that this watch has an exhibition case back (it could have been dressed it a little better...). Oh, and you will get a lot of compliments on how great it looks.
To get to the point... YOU SHOULD OWN THIS WATCH (if you like how it looks). It's currently the best homage to something much more expensive.
PS. Don't bother with the "higher end twin". It's 5x (?) the price for a watch that looks identical. In its favor it uses sapphire crystal and, in my humble opinion, a more aesthetically pleasing Swiss automatic movement (a Sellita SW200?). But at the end of the day, this is an Invicta.
PPS. The watch looks great with a rubber NDL type diver watch strap.
