I have worn my Citizen for 5 years and decided to find a new one, that would have the best quality for the 300 dollars price tag. Now I can confirm that after long research I found my new timepiece – Invicta 9937 Pro Diver Watch.
In this review I will try to explain why I choose exactly this model and how it managed to stand out from the crowd. First of all, every one who have interest in watches know that this model resembles Rolex Submariner quite a lot. Even children know that Rolex is the king in that market, but is costs much more too.
This timepiece came to me in a very fancy stained wooden box that was assembled using dovetails. The box inside are covered with black velvet, so from the first look everythink seems very luxury. Also there is a transparent dome with wooden sides that is intended to be placed over the watch to protect it from dust, while at the same time allowing it to be observed. It is quite exciting concept.
First of all is the movement type. I know nowadays all young people don‘t considering that parameter. What is important for them is the appearance. But I am the one from the previous century, so I give a lot attention to it. 9937 model are using Swiss Movement and what is more important it is not a Quartz, but Automatic. I have to mention, that exact name of clock movement is 26 jewel ETA 2824, which is very popular in high-end Swiss made models. One of the sweet things of the ETA 2824-2 is that it is stutter-free and moves around the dial smoothly.
Continued talking about it, the movement of the rotor will go round the clock in both ways. It doesn’t matter of it is moving clockwise or counterclockwise, either direction winds the watch equally well. So you can be sure that keeping the timepiece fully wound is quite easy, even if you don’t move around much. The following catch is the movement hacks, which means that when you pull the crown out to the time setting position, the second hand stops counting. This permits you to synchronize to an external source, such as the atomic clock.
So you can imagine, in that price tag that I mentioned before, such a movement is incredible. For a record, its makes 28,800 beats per hour! The accuracy is also pretty good – about 99.9998237%. One more reason it looks like Rolex Sub-mariner, it‘s bezel looks almost the same. The dial is simple and at the same time perfect. The hour markers are raised and numbers are done in the traditional block fashion. In top of the face clearly visible Invicta logo, while in the bottom are written that inside are ticking Swiss made Automatic movement.
This timepiece comes with one more features, which should be considered for high-end models. Having Sapphire crystal makes this product equivalent player to Rolex, Omega or Tag. As you know, sapphire crystal is practically unscratchable. That material are covering both the watch face and exhibition back and after 6 months I can‘t still observe any scratch. Adorning the crystal at the 3 o’clock position is a cyclops magnifier, used for increasing the size of the date for the purpose of making it more legible
I really like Invicta 9937 Pro Diver Watch casing. Not because it is solid, heavy and having both brushed and polish parts. I love to turn it over and through sapphire crystal look how automatic movement works. I have never seen a Swiss automatic movement in person before. In the sides are written clock model, manufacturer, main features and movement type.
With stainless-steel bracelet and case it weighs 0.74 pounds, however in my case I used to that quite quickly and now it feels comfortable on the wrist. What about the bracelet itself, it seems very, very solid. The clasp also seems very reliable. Of course, as the model name is Pro Diver it must to have a good water resistance. This model has resistance to 660 feet.
At a moment I really prefer the way it feels on my wrist and I am very happy with my purchase, as for this price I get the quality, which is almost the same as Rolex and others high-end class timepieces. I truly believe that Invicta brand will deserve its name with that kind of products.
