Invicta Pro Diver Professional Automatic&Quartz Swiss Watch Review

Updated on January 10, 2015

Invicta Pro Diver: No More Elitism

Invicta Pro Diver combines sports with dressy characteristics, offering watches that can serve as a diver's tool underwater, and his elegant evening timepiece above. Some of the designs bear obvious Rolex resemblances; borrowing from one the most recognized Swiss watch brands in the world in this case is both a tribute and a challenge, as Invicta try to position themselves as an affordable alternative.

Pro Diver is notable for its extensive use of Quartz movements – a caliber that is rarely given an opportunity to dominate a professional diver's collection. Roughly half of all Pro Diver watches contain Swiss quartz movements, Invicta seeking to curtail the elitism associated with purely mechanical watchmaking. Let's examine some of the lines in this collection:

  • Ocean Ghost is an automatic diver's watch with shark teeth indexes and color scheme that references the ocean by various shades of blue. Bracelets gold plating is almost a standard, other bands (stainless steel) bearing a bluish tone; two-tone models are the most common in this line. Additional features include a cabochon crown, water resistance up to 200 meters, and a date complication.

  • Grand Diver include a GMT complication on top of the date at 3 o'clock. These are more festive watches, with an inner ring on the sunray dials complimenting the unidirectional rotating bezel. Shark teeth give way to less aggressive circles – but not at the quarter hours markers. Grand Diver watches contain either automatic or quartz movements.

  • Pro Diver Classic Automatic stresses the traits of elegance and clarity, opting for Arabic numerals at quarter hours, and sharp, lance hands. Classic watches exhibit less color and more formal dressy traits – all the while retaining that spirit of utility that every diver's watch possesses.

  • Automatic and Quartz: the rest of the collection is categorized simply according to movements, various models displaying more color variety, sometimes enhanced by titanium for durability or mother-of-pearl for aesthetics.

While Pro Diver doesn't have a dedicated Ladies line, it offers small watches that would fit a finer wrist without compromising any of the features expressed in the collection. It's the same package, only in slightly smaller dimensions.
