Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Classically styled with powerful lines and featuring a precise Swiss-made automatic watch movement, the shock-resistant Invicta Grand Diver men's stainless steel watch is made for serious scuba fanatics with a water resistance rating to 300 meters (nearly 1000 feet). This large, round watch measures 47mm wide (1.85 inches) and 17mm thick (0.67 inches) and it's made from solid surgical grade stainless steel. It also offers a skeleton see-through caseback and molded diving helmet logos on the end pieces connecting the silver stainless steel bracelet band as well as on the screw-down crown. It's topped by a black unidirectional rotating elapsed time bezel with white markings. The black dial face is supplemented by Tritnite luminous dotted markers and arrowhead-style hands (with seconds hand). Other features include an anti-reflective crystal with magnifier, date function at 3 o'clock, and diver's buckle with safety clasp.

Automatic Watches

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).

An automatic watch is a mechanical watch that is self-winding. the movement of your wrist and body causes the rotor--a weight attached to an automatic winding mechanism--to wind up the watch. This automatic watch has 21 jewels that the gears turn on to protect the metal parts from grinding together. it needs no battery, but it will stop if you have been physically inactive for an extended period of time. If this happens, wind the crown ten times clockwise to start the watch and give it some reserve power.

Tritnite is a luminous material with an extended glow exclusively developed by Invicta in Switzerland and added to their timepiece hands and markers. When exposed to regular daylight, it will hold its glow for about 20 hours.

About Invicta
Latin for "invincible," Invicta was founded in La Chaux-de-fonds, Switzerland in 1837 by Raphael Picard, who believed that fine Swiss timepieces could be offered at modest prices. For more than a century, the company has created distinctive manual and automatic-winding pieces. In 1991, descendants of the Picard family reaffirmed the company's founding principle, and the invigorated Invicta has been growing ever since with one of the most widely diverse collections of precise Swiss timepieces on the market.

This watch is the heaviest that I own, pretty large on the wrist as well, but I do really love this watch, keeps excellent accurate time. You just have to get used to the weight of this watch. Have had it for over a year now and it still looks perfect even with a couple of 'hits' on this watch.

Nice Watch with Big Face Feb. 9 2008
By J. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The standard 8926 is listed in Invicta's 2008 catalog as having a 43mm diameter and this 3044 is listed as having a 47mm diameter crown, which doesn't seem like much difference, just 4mm. Well, the 4mm makes a huge difference. The images in Invicta's catalog don't come close to showing how big the face of this watch is, compared to the standard 8926. Also with the bigger face, the luminous hour markers are bigger than those on the 8926, making the face brighter and easier to read in the dark. The bracelet is scaled bigger too, compared to the bracelet on the 8926, 22mm vs 20mm. The hinge on the bracelet is a precision made hinge instead of the stamped sheet hinge of the 8926. The exhibition case back, as on the 8926, is a nice touch for us automatic watch fans. The watch has a diving helmet on the face and band. The Invicta name is prominent on the face, side of the case and clasp. The scalloped edge bezel similar to an Omega. It is a pretty watch on it's own, styled much like classic Swiss diving watches. The automatic movement, especially with the viewing window on the back of the case, is for us old school automatic watch enthusiasts. Being an automatic it will not keep time as precise as a quartz watch. I have found mine to be one minute per week fast, which is acceptable for an automatic for me. I was looking for an automatic diver with a big easy to read face, classic styling, reasonably priced, this works for me.

Great Watch Dec 17 2007
By Patrick Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Received my watch last week and I love it.

It is very large and heavy. It looks great and looks professional. The price of this watch is a bargain, it could easily be priced much higher.

Worst watch ever owned July 22 2013
By Unhappy buyer - Published on Amazon.com
Junk owned this watch for 6 months and it just stopped working, I called Invicta customer service and they told me to send $28.00 for return shipping and it would take at least 90 days to get it back, live and learn I guess I'll stick with Seiko from now on.
