Invicta Russian Diver Automatic&Quartz Swiss Watch Review

Updated on January 10, 2015

Russian Diver: How Invicta see Russia

Invicta Russian Diver watches present a strange combination of simplicity, decorative elaboration, fun, and horological professionalism. I guess that this is how Invicta see Russia – and I guess that many Russians would agree with this characterization.

Russian Diver watches boast several off-beat design characteristics that distinguish them from the other collections: a chained to the case protective cap for the crown, complex bracelets where one kind of material weaves around the other, the use of Russian letters. Watches come in a variety of colors, and rely on both Swiss automatic and Swiss quartz calibers; water resistance varies between 100 and 200 meters. Now let's look at the subcollections:

  • Russian Diver Quinotaur includes the openworked Skeleton model, and the brightly colored (orange, yellow, cherry, blue) Quinotaur Chronograph and Extreme – all showing the same basic qualities, with the addition of o complication, or increase in size. All Russian Diver watches are very big: usually 51.5 mm in diameter.

  • Offshore Russian Diver is a darker chronograph version of the Quinotaur Chronograph, usually carrying black ionic plating on bezels. Offshore dials are made of carbon fiber, and display numerals of strictly even numbers, opting for regular round subdials for the complication. Perhaps the less “Russian” looking watch of all Russian Diver timepieces.

  • Russian Diver Chrono Square is, strangely enough, a more stylish reincarnation of the basic collection design, it's the dressy variation. Instead of the round shape, this line goes for a square (actually more of a slightly horizontally elongated rectangle), which in combination with dark dials (black, brown, dark blue and green) produces a menacing, unrelenting look. Both automatic chronograph and quartz GMT complications are available, giving the line a functional range.

  • Russian Diver GMT employs Swiss quartz movements, showing the second time zone using a small round aperture just below twelve o'clock. In a way, this line logically concludes the collection, imparting it a traveler's character. Both Square and GMT models are part of the Invicta Signature collection, and as such come with leather straps instead of the usual bracelets.
