Wow...So much at this price point,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Invicta Pro Diver Men's Automatic Watch with Black Dial Display and Silver Stainless Steel Bracelet 8926 (Watch)
I have had this watch for 2 weeks and like it very much. did a lot of research and settled for this one. Recently sold my Orange monster as I was fed up having to change the date and time after few days of non use. So basically wanted a hand winding automatic. Also wanted an exhibition glass back and this fit the bill. Wanted seconds hacking and did not want to pay a fortune. The orient watch (without the glass back) is almost twice the price. So at £64 this Invicta was a bargain. The watch arrived 2 days after ordering with free postage. Brilliant. The yellow Invicta box is Ok, the watch was very well packaged inside. Dont bother with the instruction manual it is useless. The watch stem is the screw down variety. Unscrew it till it pops out a bit. Wind it clockwise in this position for handwinding. It wont tighten so stop after 20-25 turns. Will give you about 15 hrs worth of power. Pull out to next click....very difficult to find this click as it is only about a mm out. This gives quick date change (counterclockwise). Pull out further (about 5mm) to final stop. This is seconds hack and time adjust (both clock and counter clockwise directions). Be gentle with all these stem use and learn to hear the click sound. The watch keeps excellent time. Gone forward by mere 15 seconds in 5 days for me. That is better than most automatics which are Swiss made.
The only cons that you should consider. The watch face could have been slightly bigger. This is not a large watch. Under a loupe i spotted a small fibre like debris inside the watch. should not be there but hardly visible to naked eye. The invicta logo on side of watch is stupid to look at. The strap is a bit feeble but certainly not horrible enough to make me want to change it.
All in all this is an excellent watch for the price point. Added bonus is that it is a submariner homage and a good one at that. Buy it, you wont be disappointed.

yes ordered from amazon uk. If the photo shows coin edge then thats what you want and thats what you will get. easy to return if you dont get the correct one. Check reverse to confirm that it is a NH35 movement.
