The Invicta brand is well-known in regards to Men’s diver watches. Since inception back in 1837, the company has released many products. The 8926 is among the popular picks and has been around since 2014. In this Invicta 8926 review, we will look at some aspects that make it tick.
The Watch Case
I couldn’t help but notice that this dive watch only weighs about 5.44 ounces. And taking into account that the case, clasp, and band are all made of metal, it has to be among the lightest pieces in its class.
This simply means you’ll complain less about being weighed down by the weight. The case measuring 40mm in diameter and 13mm thick, it makes a good everyday watch.
The parts also have a smooth texture and edges and don’t leave any marks, scratches or cause any discomfort to the skin. Nevertheless, there are those who feel that leather or resin straps are more flexible and feel lighter.
Legibility of the dial is key to getting the best from your watch.
This aspect is well brought out in this diver watch. The mineral dial is moderately large and features a black background. It also has an anti-reflecting coating which comes handy during the bright and sunny days. Within the dial are a date and calendar window.
Additionally, the hands are silver in color and illuminate at night or in the dark. The numbers and markers are also large and well-placed for easy viewing.
Thanks to the Cyclops window, viewing the date is easier. And since its round in shape, it looks manly in comparison to oval, tank, or other shapes.
Crown and Bezel
The crown, found in the 3 o’clock position, comes in a screw-down design.
And with “Invicta” etched in the opposite side, you’ll always be reminded you are adorning an Invicta.
The silver unidirectional bezel creates a good contrast with the black background and this certainly contributes to its sophisticated look.
Viewing time even in the dark should be much easier courtesy of the luminous hour marks and hands. They are coated by the much safer trinite instead of the radioactive radium.
From a closer look, the design and hands setup looks very much like the high-end Rolex watch.
The Watch Movement
Simplicity and elegance would be a good description of this watch.
It relies on Japanese automatic movement which blends nicely with the analog display. With a rotary speed of 30rmp, the hands move in a precise sweeping motion.
And like other variants in a similar class from the firm, the Invicta logo is evident on the hand. It operates seamlessly and quietly and
Invicta claims that this watch is safe to use to depths up to 660 feet/ 200 meters. The tight seal between the face, case, and backstop sweat, moisture, and water.
In addition, it doesn’t allow dirt, dust and other things to penetrate inside. You should, therefore, have a crystal clear dial also considering that it’s more tolerant to scratches, stains, and fading.
If you desire a fashionable, professional watch that looks high-end but won’t burn holes in your pocket, the 8926 model by Invicta is one of the best options.
It’s very durable and strong thanks to the stainless steel construction, has a water resistance up to 200 meters/ 660 feet, looks very stylish for both formal and informal wear, and is also high quality, precise, and affordable.
