Invicta 9937 Pro Diver Watch Review

There are so many timepiece out there that are very reliable and competitive to  Submariner, also have all the same features. But there is one point - price tag that is one-quarter that of the real Rolex. However, for that kind of price you will not get the Submariner look. It is the look that draws everyone to the Submariner side.

You can find dozens of watches that looks like Submariner, like those, who being made by Chronomat. Sandoz, O&W, Croton and others. For the most part, these watches, while have similar appearance, have no chance to compete in features and performance.

That set the ball rolling, and few months later, after slipping their delivery date once or twice, the Invicta 9937 Watch finally made it to the dealers with a retail price of $1075. Shortly thereafter, I ordered one for the heavily discounted price of $300, which included shipping. I was very glad to get this product discounted more than 50 percent! On June 29th, my watch came on my wrist for the first time.

From then till now and am very impressed with the watch. I can notice, that while this watch review specifically targets the 9937, it is equally applicable to the 9938 and 9939 as well, which differ only in finish.
9937 model has Swiss movement, and one that has gained respect and popularity because of its ruggedness,  reliability, accuracy, features, and low price. This is the ETA 2824-2. The variation that Invicta uses is gold-plated, but undecorated.

Just right under the winged Invicta logo of Invicta 9937 Face, is the word "Swiss" in italics. Some are saying that they don't spend much attention on this, but I prefer to that. I have to say, that the Face really feels as a Rolex watch, but at the same time allows it to remain unique.

The case of this Invicta model has polished sides, a brushed top, and the manufacturer name engraved into the side of the case. Invicta have done a quite good job by creating this model. You can dive with the watch to 200 metres without no fear.

Like other high-end watches, in Invicta 9937 review I have to mention, that it also has sapphire glass. I can say that this is really matter to me, because as you know, sapphire is the best scratch proof on the timepiece. As you can imagine, your wrist is always in action.

What I love the most is stainless steel bracelet. It is just amazing and even can be better than stock Rolex bracelet. The thickness of it is just 4.85mm and it also has beefy links. It also at the same time feels very solid and compact. The outer links are brushed, while inner links are polished.

Yes, Invicta doesn‘ t have that fancy brand as Rolex, but with that price you get much more that you imagined before checking it on the e-store. It comes with high-end class features, Swiss movement and are doing it‘s job very well. I definitely recommend it to you!
