People in the know would tell you that a well-crafted timepiece is never cheap and if you’re aspiring to own a Swiss made timepiece then you better be prepared to shell out a pretty sum for it. The logic behind this common wisdom is that creation of a finely crafted watch requires precision and labour, both costly processes, sometimes resulting in them being out of your budget range. But the Invicta watch brand overturns this common belief that well-crafted timepieces must be expensive. The Invicta brand has made it its mission to offer well designed and well-crafted watches (and Swiss watches, no less), at extremely affordable prices.
Brand Invicta came into being in 1837 when Swiss watchmaker Raphael Picard started the company making manual and automatic winding watches. Over more than one-and-half centuries the company built a great reputation for itself worldwide. In 1991 the company was taken over by American investors who continued with the original owners’ mission to make high quality watches but affordable for everyone.
Today, the Invicta brand is known to produce some of the finest Swiss watches in the market that are durable, accurate and best of all, affordable to everyone. In fact, several of the Invicta timepieces come for less than $100. The brand offers styles and sizes to suit different tastes.
Invicta’s Pro Diver line of watches is the most popular and rightly so. The Pro Diver series offers a wide range of choices for both men and women. There is also a wide range of styles, colours and designs to choose from. Even though these timepieces are affordably priced, there is no compromise on quality and fine craftsmanship that the Invicta brand is well known for.
My choice was the Invicta Automatic Pro Diver 200M Black Dial INV8926OB Men’s Watch which was pegged at $129 at the online retailer Citywatches Canada https://www.citywatches.ca/ . I feel the Invicta Automatic Pro Diver 8926OB gives a hint of the Rolex Submariner in terms of looks which is great to make a style statement.
The Pro Diver 8926OB is not a flashy watch, but distinctive in its own way. It sported all the regular features of the Invicta Pro Diver Series of watches like large stainless-steel case and bracelet, scratch resistant mineral crystal, unidirectional bezel, screw down crown and date display. It is powered by an automatic movement, luminous hands and markers make it easy to read the time in any kind of light. Being a dive watch it goes without saying that it is water resistant up to 200 meters
While the Invicta brand of watches may not be luxury items, they do have a luxurious appearance for the price tag. If you are looking for an affordable Swiss watch with excellent craftsmanship, accuracy and decent good looks, the Invicta brand offers you a wide choice.
