The future blue of a better you.

The bigger the better right? Well, if you are Invicta then that may just be the case with their successful series of Russian Diver watches, the Invicta Men’s Russian Diver Mechanical Blue Polyurethane and Stainless Steel Mechanical Watch 1089 is no exception. When you want to make a bold statement and if your motto is to live life large then this timepiece is perfect for you.

The Russian Diver watches are a series of watches based on the old timepieces commissioned by the Russian Navy in the mid 20th Century. These timepieces were designed large, so that divers could wear them over their wet suits. The Invicta line of Russian Diver watches are replica’s of the old Russian watches, but that doesn’t mean that they are a cheap imitation. These timepieces still are water proof up to 165 feet. If you notice on the side the crown of the watch also has a water tight seal attached to it. This may make the watch appear bigger, but it adds a very nice cool factor to it. The seal is connected to the watch face with a chain, which is a very interesting touch. Everyone around you will be amazed by your unique fashion choice.

The bezel also takes some cues from the past with its coin-edge design. This was actually something that was used in the days of the Romans when they used gold coins as currency. People would shave off the edges of the coins, because then they would have enough gold shavings to make a new coin over time. The Roman officials did not approve of this and decided to produce coins with edges, so that you could tell if someone tampered with the coins. Invicta is a brand that will bring you prosperity and the coin-edged bezel now serves as a stylish additional feature to your watch.

At the 9 o’clock mark there is a nice subtle addition of a 60 second subdial in yellow. This is a feature that is very easily missed at first glance, but it may prove handy to the busy man on the go. The watch also features a very unique back where it is clear on the bottom. You can see the inside mechanics of the watch from the face and the back of it, which is a refreshing welcome addition.
