Stylish and durable, the Invicta Men’s Pro Diver Swiss GMT Stainless Steel Quartz 6090 watch will likely attract many gazes. Although advertised as casual wear, this snazzy Swiss design can be worn for business as well.  It’s a highly functional and fashionable choice for men looking for a reputable watch.

Snazzy Style: Looking at the outer features, the royal blue colored dial immediately strikes you as classy and distinctive. The beautiful blue color makes a stunning contrast with the silver tone luminous hands and hour markers. Continuing the contrast, the unidirectional bezel matches this color scheme. The color contrast, big dot hour markers, and large hands improve your readability of the time, making it quick to view the time at a glance. Although numerals and solid hands would enhance your readability of the Swiss quartz movement, it’s still very easy to see the time. A crystal mineral covering ensures protection of the dial. To top it off, the polished and brushed stainless steel case and stainless steel bracelet are a marvelous match for the blue and silver tone dial.

Special Features: Other special features of the Invicta 6090 include a sixty-second sub-dial at the one o’clock position and a large calendar that displays the date at the eight o’clock position. Unlike many other watches that typically just display the day number, this calendar feature displays the entire day, month, and year. Water resistant up to 100 meters, this glamorous timepiece is the diver’s dream.

A Disadvantage and an Alternative: It is important to consider that this watch is large and bulky. If you’re looking for a light-weight, small, or medium size watch, this is probably not the timepiece for you. If blue is not the color for you, you might consider Invicta’s Pro Diver Swiss GMT Stainless Steel 6091 model. It’s the exact same style as the Invicta Men’s Pro Diver Swiss GMT Stainless Steel Quartz 6090 featured in this review, except with a silver dial and white hands.

The Price Kicker: The U.S. retail price for the Invicta Men’s Pro Diver Swiss GMT Stainless Steel Quartz Watch is $695. However, you can find many great bargains for the Invicta 6090 if you shop online. It’s currently available on Amazon.com for $149.90. You may also be able to find this model at Costco for as low as $86.99 plus tax, though finding it in a store can be hit or miss. For its unique style and special features, it’s certainly worth looking for an affordable price.
