Invicta Pro Diver: An HONEST Review

Video Review


Video Transcript


what’s up YouTube today I’m here with
the beautiful and victor pro diver which
has been praised as one of the very best
watch values out there today for under
100 dollars if you’re searching for a
quality timepiece that greatly resembles
the iconic Rolex Submariner but comes in
at a fraction of the cost while still
retaining a quality movement with
accurate timekeeping then stick around
and keep watching because today I’ll be
giving you guys my honest unbiased
review to see if this watch truly lives
up to all the hype that it’s gotten over
the years stay tuned
[Music]
Before we jump into the review I just
want to point out that this video is not
sponsored by Invicta I recently
purchased this watch because I’ve read
about it and seen it so many times over
the years that I decided that it’s
finally time to pick one up I’m also a
huge fan of Rolex then since this watch
resembles the Rolex Submariner so
closely I basically wanted to test-drive
it to see if I would even like how a
Submariner as type of watch would feel
on my wrist now
Invictus seems to be one of those brands
that people either love or hate I’ll get
into the reasons why later but for right
now I’m just gonna give you guys a brief
history on Invicta also known as the
Invicta watch group Invicta which is
Latin for invincible was originally
founded by Raphael Picard back in 1837
in the city of La shuddha Falls
Switzerland this city is notorious for
its rich history in the watchmaking
industry and even one of the original
founders of Rolex opened up an office
there back in 1908 for the next 150
years or so and Victor would go on to
create many exceptional manual and
automatic winding watches until the
early 1970s when brands like Seiko
basically brought the Swiss watchmaking
industry to their knees during the
courts revolution
Invicta practically disappeared during
this time until 1991 when the company
would re-establish itself under new
ownership with goals to revitalize the
brand
soon after this and Victor would come
out with their most popular line of
watches yet the pro diver
the pro diver is currently the most
purchase Invicta watch on the market
today and for good reason I’ll touch
more on why this is later but for now
I’ll just boil it down to the fact that
it’s an incredible value for the money
and it brings a lot of joy to people who
simply can’t afford a Rolex Submariner
now this watch is an automatic and if
you’re not familiar with what that means
an automatic watch is just a type of
watch in which the natural motion of the
person wearing it provides the energy to
actually power the watch the exact model
that I have here is the Invicta pro
diver 89 28 obi it’s a diving watch with
an automatic movement and a two-tone
stainless steel band now let’s move on
to the size and the specs of the watch
the size of the pro diver to nobody’s
surprise is extremely close to the Rolex
Submariner it has a case diameter of 40
millimeters a case thickness of 13
millimeters and a band width of 20
millimeters now for the specs of the
watch the case band and bezel materials
are all made up of gold-plated stainless
steel which so far seems to be holding
up quite well I have been wearing this
watch now for a couple of months and I
see no signs of the finish wearing off
anytime soon the crystal on the pro
diver is Invictus signature flame fusion
crystal which is basically a mineral
crystal with relatively good scratch
resistance
the movement inside the pro diver is
probably the most impressive thing about
this watch inside we have the incredibly
reliable Seiko caliber NH 35 a it’s an
automatic 24 jeweler’s serve of about 41
hours
it has bi-directional winding indicated
by the two arrows on the rotor I really
like the fact that Invicta decided to
put a display back on the back of this
watch because it makes viewing the
movement very easy and enjoyable overall
it’s an incredible movement for a watch
of this price point and Invicta really
did a good job of making it look unique
by adding a custom rotor to it the pro
diver does have luminous hands and even
though they could be a little bit
brighter they do get the job done and
work just fine in the dark the dial is a
very nice bluish violet color and
complements the watch quite well now
let’s jump into the unboxing and discuss
the features and overall design of this
watch the pro diver comes in a nice
yellow box that opens up to reveal the
watch I was pleasantly surprised with
how nicely done the packaging and
presentation for this watch was once
it’s out of the box and you get a chance
to hold it you really get a good idea
for just how much quality Invicta puts
into the pro diver it feels nice and
solid and has a really good weight to it
you’ll also notice that the colors are
extremely vibrant and look pleasant
once it’s on the wrist it has a really
nice feel to it it’s not too loud and
in-your-face but at the same time has a
good presence on the wrist I have a
pretty average wrist size and after
getting the band adjusted at a local
jewelry store the watch fits perfectly
fine with no issues along with the watch
you also get the paperwork which just
goes over and explains the three year
warranty the inspiration for the design
of this watch should be of no surprise
to anyone as I stated earlier this watch
greatly resembles the rolex submariner
and i mean almost to a tee from what I
can observe the only real difference is
in the design are the writing on the
dials and the different counter balances
on the second hands everything else is
virtually identical now to some people
this is a huge plus and to others it’s a
huge turnoff I personally like how
closely the design matches up to the sub
because it gives me a good chance to
really test drive this up in a way on
the other hand I can definitely see how
somewhat disliked its close resemblance
to the sub almost as an insult to Rolex
and lastly this watch is a diving watch
so it is extremely versatile and can be
worn with just about anything now let’s
move on to the features since this watch
is a diver let’s first discuss its water
resistance capabilities the pro diver is
a legitimate diving watch it boasts an
impressive water resistance of 200
meters which translates to about 660
feet as I do with all of my watches I
did a very basic water resistance test
where I kept the watch submerged for
about five minutes
as expected the pro diver passed the
test with flying colors feel free to
dive snorkel and swim while wearing this
watch and there’s no need to worry about
keeping it dry or protecting it from the
elements the pro diver also includes the
day of the month
pleasantly displayed in the three
o’clock position and the watch does have
hand winding to give it some extra
energy
today let’s move on to the build quality
of the watch now generally speaking this
is not the highest quality watch out
there and there is some very slight
quality control issues here and there
but for the price that you pay this
watch truly does provide incredible
value for the money I can think of many
other watches out there that cost double
or even triple that don’t have this nice
of a movement or a three year warranty
at the end of the day after wearing this
watch now for the past three months or
so I’ve had nothing but positive
experiences with it it’s functioning
perfectly and keeping great time the
clasps on the band click into place
nicely which makes putting on the watch
very effortless and the watch looks and
operates beautifully now just to make
one thing clear to everyone there are
better more original watches out there
that will still give you that Submariner
feel without breaking the bank
such as the Orion tray or a Seiko diver
but they are at least double if not
triple the price of the pro diver if you
are really looking for the best overall
value for the money when it comes to a
diver that greatly resembles the iconic
Rolex Submariner then I would without
hesitation recommend the Invicta pro
diver bottom line at a price tag of
around $75 the Invicta pro diver is
without a doubt one of the very best
values in consumer watches today thanks
to an overall package of solid build
quality a reliable Seiko movement and a
three year warranty

least please don’t forget to thumbs up
