Diving And Everyday use:

Numerous divers have tested this watch many times and it has worked flawlessly. Whether you’re a beginner scuba diver or a seasoned diving enthusiast, this watch is nice to have.

People say it’s snug enough not to be distracting over a scuba suit, and it is very comfortable to wear underwater, even over a wetsuit. It’s incredibly easy to read (strong luminescence), and the reliable bezel allows you to track time and your ascent rate without any trouble.

Some divers even use it for free diving, since it’s very accurate. However, it does not give you all the sophisticated functions of a dive computer, so you need to choose according to your needs.

Finally, this is an amazing watch for casual wear too. It is not only meant for diving and divers, it can also be used for casual outings.

Cost-Effective And Durable:

Unlike most diving watches, this particular one is more affordable than most of the rest. Due to the waterproofing, the prices of diving watches are mostly inflated. The  Invicta 8926OB is built high-quality products and is sold at a wide variety of subsidized prices. Relating to your distinctive needs, this watch comes in a wide range of prices for its esteemed customers.

This watch has a warranty of two years, this ensures you for any company related damages. INVICTA watches are among the best selling affordable men’s dive watches now. You will rarely find a reliable dive watch in the price range of under $100, not to mention an automatic one.

However, it is exactly what Invicta, a Swiss budget watchmaker, can offer you. Their 89xx models are solid dive watches with a dressy look- which are dependable underwater and genteel in everyday-use. The watch is cost-effective, practical, and elegant.

Mechanism:

The watch moves as long as you move, it is motion powered, the hand revolves smoothly (without jumps), and the watch will continue working for almost two days from the moment you set it down. There is no type of battery involved in any of this, which is a huge advantage. And even after you leave it stored for a while, it starts working again as soon as you put it on, as if nothing happened.

Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They’re considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors). Even though it is not compulsory for the functionality of the watch, some watch collectors prefer to have the watch winder.
