The wants and needs of the average watch user in today’s society has changed massively and people now crave the best, most up to date timepiece with all the fanciest gadgets and technologies.
Invicta have built up a reputation for making high quality watches as well as incorporating some of the features the watch market desires these days. The Invicta Men’s 8929OB Pro Diver automatic watch is a unique piece with an eye catching design. Its gold ion-plated design looks trendy and fashionable whilst maintaining its manly appeal, although plated in gold it doesn’t look too flashy, and I feel that it balances well with the whole watch as a unit.
8929OB Design & Functionality
A black multi directional bezel can be found surrounding the 40mm 18k gold case and looks great with the gold-ion colour blending in with it. The bezel is easy to read with large numbers on the ring, making it easier to read in darker lighting.
The 8929OB has a black dial and luminous hands which provide ease of use and further back up the ability to read in more difficult lighting situations. Invicta have designed the hands to be inspired by their logo which looks great as it sweeps around the face. Just alongside the hands is the date box, with built in magnifier to make it easier to read, this function is always something which is welcomed in my opinion and a must in this day and age.
It looks like the 8929OB Invicta is an attempt to simplify the art of telling the time, adding in little details to make it easier to read and see the dial. It just shows how much has changed over the years, that we now require things to be easier for us to use in our busy lives.
The popular choice of Japanese automatic movement means that the art of winding up your watch is a distant memory as this does it all for you. The 8929OB has a very high quality build, and you won’t have to worry about it suddenly stopping and then realising that you haven’t noticed in days, which is never good. The automatic movement is not quite as accurate and precise as the Japanese Quartz, however it does still keep an accurate pace and shouldn’t be out by more than a few seconds every year.
The Invicta 8929OB which is made in the United States of America, has the look of a sturdy and durable timepiece, which it is. The three-link stainless steel band feels comfortable to wear and is easy to take on and off during the day.
With this watch being in the Pro Diver Collection you can expect a decent water resistance depth and that’s exactly what you’ll get. This watch can reach the cool depths of 200m which is 660ft, perfect for those with a love of water sports or those prone to having little accidents. I do warn you though, don’t be going scuba diving with this on, it won’t work out very well.
Invicta have done this watch justice and have designed a high quality, good looking piece at an affordable price. Although it may sound cheap, it doesn’t lack in the quality department, it looks and feels sturdy and as long as it’s taken care of, it will last a long time. The gold ion-plated design gives a sense of style and class, without giving off the “blingy” look, and would be great to take to a party to show off. Overall, I am impressed with the design and features within this time-piece and feel that the price is a fair reflection on what to expect for the Invicta Men’s 8929OB Pro Diver automatic watch.
