Written by: Stacy McCullough If you are looking for one classy looking watch, look no further. The Invicta 480 Men’s Pro Diver is a beautiful piece that has modern appeal with classic tones. The variety of functions on the watch also make it highly desirable.

The 480 looks stunning with the mixture of stainless steel and black mother of pearl. The band and case are both stainless steel, with the case being 14mm thick. The band consists of links and comes with more than enough to fit any size wrist. It is also rather easy to pull the links off to adjust for those with smaller sizes. And to make sure it stays put, the clasp has a safety. The dial is black mother of pearl with classic silver tone hands to match the rest of the watch. The second hand is a blue tone to blend into the back a little more though. The Pro Diver has really classic appeal that would be great for special occasions or everyday wear. The face is covered with a mineral window that will protect from scratches or wear. If you need to check the time at night, or say, underwater, go for it. The numbers and hands are luminous and glow in the dark so your eyes will never have to squint trying to figure the time. And even better, the watch is safe under water for up to 330ft. That means most people – even surfers and divers – can safely wear it all the time.  This is one of the few watches Invicta has that actually has a working bezel, which moves in a unidirectional motion. But don’t worry too much about it, because this watch has Swiss Quartz Movement so you’ll never have an excuse of your watch being slow again. You’ll be on time for every meeting, date or appointment with this watch.  The 480 is one of the new watches, modeled in 2011. It gives you a lot of function in a sweet looking piece. Retailing for $395, for most people this watch may be worth it.

PROS:

  • Large Watch
  • Extra Links for Large Men
  • Good for Diving (reads well under water)

CONS:

  • Heavy
  • Date Window Difficult to Read,
  • Luminous Leaves Numbers Looking Green

Invicta’s 480 Men’s Pro Diver is a large piece that looks great on larger men. If you want a smaller piece or something a little different from the norm, you may want to try similar items like the Invicta 0479, 0420, 9223. If you want a watch that is classic in style, can go underwater and demands attention, you will want to own one of these.
