Invicta Automatic Pro Diver G2 9010 Review

0 Comment

Invicta’s men’s automatic pro diver g2 watch with gold tone stainless steel is a gorgeous timepiece. It is a beautiful pro diver watch with an elegance that will certainly get some attention.

This piece has many notable features. The Japanese-automatic movement requires no battery. It charges simply by the movement of your arm as you wear it. Other features include:

 

  • mineral dial window
  • analog display
  • fold over clasp with safety
  • 43 millimeter case diameter
  • 13 millimeter case thickness
  • gold tone stainless steel band material
  • standard mens band length
  • 20 millimeter band width
  • gold band color
  • gold dial color
  • gold tone stainless steel bezel material
  • unidirectional bezel function
  • calendar date at 3:00
  • luminous hands
  • screw down crown to prevent water infiltration
  • water resistant to 660 feet
  • automatic (self-winding mechanism)

This watch is a surprising 1.4 pounds. It is one of the smaller, lighter Invicta watches. It is refreshing to see as I am a smaller man with a smaller wrist. Many Invicta watches simply feel too clunky for my taste. However I am also not a fan of all gold watches. This will come down to personal preference. I prefer color contrast to my watches. Outside of this personal preference of mine, this watch is elite quality.

This watch is a wonderful addition to the Pro Diver Collection. The appeal is that it looks quite expensive, being all gold. But it is actually quite affordable, even at the retail price of $285. Like most Invicta watches however, you can find it for much cheaper. I found it for $129.99 on mrwatch.com, watcho.com, newegg.com and worldofwatches.com. The affordability of this piece make it ideal for those wanting a classy look for cheap. It is also a great price for a gift for a loved one.

The auto-winding however has received some criticism. Some have reported problems and malfunctions of this feature. Some have also complained that the self-winding mechanism is also a bit noisy. Most however are more than pleased with this timepiece and many say they receive consistent compliments of it.

Like all Invicta watches, this piece come with the WatchesOnNet warranty which will cover most repairs and complications for 24 months. Considering the self-winding mechanism has received some criticism and may present a problem, this warranty will give you piece of mind. Nonetheless, this watch is an attention grabber. It is more than affordable and looks very classy. It is bound to turn some heads.
