Men’s Pro Diver Silver Dial Neon Orange Rubber 00006-ORG by Invicta is a part of the Pro Diver catalogue and is categorized as a casual men’s watch with a buckle style clasp. The bezel is unidirectional and has a push/pull crown. The neon orange strap is 20 mm in width (24 mm at its widest) and can be up to 8.75 inches in length. The dial is a marbled silver color with luminous silver toned hands and markers. This model watch uses Swiss parts quartz movement and a Flame-Fusion crystal. As its name suggest it is waterproof, up to 5 ATM or 50 meters. It also features a date calender at the 3:00 position with a magnified window to actually be able to read it and it comes with a stainless steel case.

This neon orange banded silver dialed watch is part of the Invicta Pro Diver collection which has many varieties offering different features, looks, and colors. This particular watch is not the most expensive model in the collection and is likewise not the most packed with features. Other models offer waterproof depths of up to 300 meters but those models do not retail at $495. The Men’s Pro Diver Silver Dial Neon Orange Rubber model 00006-ORG retails at that price but from authorized online retailers this model is really quite inexpensive with most retailers offering the #00006-ORG around $89 on average. With the neon orange color this underwater safe timepiece is not exactly the most stylish watch on the underwater safe market and Invicta does offer Pro Diver models with aesthetics in mind, however the bright color offers the practical purpose of being visible. The orange is the same color that hunters use in deep woods to distinguish one another from woodland creatures. In an aquatic environment where the #00006-ORG is designed to be used in that same orange can help make the wearer more visible underwater. 

This watch is not going to be the watch you want if you are a serious scuba diver. For that you may be better off with another Pro Diver model like the Scuba line but the 00006-ORG model is perfect for the occasional sea-farer or casual fishermen. The price and craftsmanship makes the 00006-ORG accessible to land-lubbers as well as the mermaid or merman wannabe. Overall, the tremendous price reduction makes the Men’s Pro Diver Silver Dial Neon Orange Rubber 00006-ORG a great choice for the time-keeping impaired.
