Just have the one, I think.  I don't know what 17 jewel movement it has but really like the design & enjoy wearing it regularly. 

Just the one Invicta in my collection, and it was free - Generously donated to me by RWP a couple of months ago: It is MASSIVE, but that is right up my street so I don't mind at all, and I l

Doesn't seem to be an Invicta owners club on here so I thought I would start one. I know they can be a bit love/ hate but hopefully owners will post their pictures and comments on here. I only have th

Welcome @Scorpion1031, posting pictures catches everyone out at first :yes: There is a thread on here explaining how to do it. I have found Flickr the easiest to use so would suggest setting up an account on there, others use photobucket. Hopefully you will be up and running soon with the pictures as I would love to see your Invicta's :thumbsup:

They do look like a Rolex to the untrained eye. I would probably get annoyed by people asking is it a Rolex

I've had one in the past, but I let it go... I wasn't too keen on the dial with those small hour indexes and flimsy logo. It also made a loud sound when auto winding.

Now I'm thinking on getting some kind of speedway, but I'm not convinced so far...

Yes well chuffed at the price  and grey dial, and the leather strap suits my boyish wrists.

Oh so many of you :)

I am happy to have the opportunity to talk with actual owners and avoid all that hate build up against Invicta...

I just want to know how reliable is that brand?

Love how they look and i don't expect hand made quality for that price, but i don't want to send my watch for repair every other week...

PS

Currently looking at Yakuza model / automatic Japanese movement 

Thank you

I bought an Invicta a couple of weeks ago so can join the club!! :thumbsup:

 

I found this on Shpock and paid what I consider to a bargainous £40! It came with the box and other bits!

There's barely a mark on it apart from fingerprints from handling it!!

Thought I would revive this one and add a few that I own 

 

Firstly I was given this one and needed to replace the movement as it was not working

Invicta Grand Diver one of my favourite watches

Bought as a spares or repair , new movements and a set of hands I had lying around and all is good .

Finally an 8926OB which I bought looking like this

Hi sorry, I know this is an old thread now but couldn't help but stop to look at this watch, wow! I am quite new to this forum and haven't got an invicta in my collection but have been looking for one, I like the look of some of the bolt ones, until I saw this! Can you please tell me where I can get one. Awsome!

I am a bit surprised that Invicta don't have any stores or outlets in the UK, I don't know why, they seem to have jumped right over us brits and landed in Germany and Portugal. I would love to buy one but don't trust ebay or amazon, I also don't want to be stung for import taxes for buying from the USA. Anybody got any suggestions please!

I have a couple of pro divers both aquired secondhand and very pleased with them.

My first had the black/red bezel, keeps superb time, + less than a second/day, this has a Seiko NH35A calibre.

My all black bezel has a Seiko NH25A calibre and is currently + 4 second/day 

My son fell in love with the black/red version so last Christmas santa presented him with one (from Amazon)

Now, both of mine have bright finished winding weights whereas my son's is yellow? Mine have etched numbers between the lugs and only visible by looking up into the bracelet/lug gap.

Numbers are 10-08 on the black/red and 11-03 on the black, I am guessing these are day codes, Aug 2010 and March 2011?

Just wondered when the yellow weights appeared?

Here's one i'd forgotten about, I bought it off Shpock for £25, It needed a battery so I fitted one and the watch wouldn't run right at all so I left the seller bad feedback, Eventually I tried another battery and it turned out that i'd bought a bad batch of them!!

When I got some from a different source it ran fine!!, I couldn't see a way to rescind the negative feedback on there! :sadwalk:

The boxes always seem to be nice with Invicta watches!

I'm surprised I never posted mine.

The first one I bought is a Model 8932A I found BIN on Ebay for £15. Seemed like everyone else was thinking it was too good to be true, but it's never had a problem in well over a year. Only thing I'd criticize is the lugs are a bit sharp. It's small for Invicta at 37.5mm, with an SII Hattori PC32A quartz movement.

The next is a Specialty 1203, much bigger at 45mm, with a 6J Ronda 5030.d quartz movement. The watch was in a bit of a state when I bought it, but it cleaned up okay, with a new crystal and a lume pip robbed from a scratched Steinhard insert. The thing I couldn't fix is the bezel, which was loose, so I jammed a piece of rubber gasket under it and pretended it should be fixed. Lume is a rather weak blue.

Lots of writing on the back (photo taken before cleaning).

Last, one I've now sold, an S1 Rally Overdrive, model 22385 with a Chinese ISA 6371D quartz movement. Nice looking black case, but the ceramic bracelet had a chip out of one link, and had no micro adjustment, so it always felt loose. Moved it onto a leather rally strap, which was better, but I couldn't see the hands without reading glasses, so it had to go.

More reading matter.

My latest purchase from Amazon, the 8926...

49883877723_079832d6ef_b.jpg

I have had this watch in my collection for a couple of weeks now. I do enjoy wearing it and I love the overall design of it. It keeps great time with the NH35 Seiko movement. I have to say though I had some issues with the spring bars. I think I only noticed the problem because I removed the bracelet, once I put a strap on the 8926 I found the spring bars were constantly making a clicking/crunching sound. I removed the strap to inspect the bars, I found them to be very loose. The ends of the bars that retract were somewhat wobbly and it concerned me enough to replace them. Since replacing the bars I have had no issues. I now wear the watch in confidence and enjoy the watch when it's keeping me company. A couple of other little things I notice since owning this model is the engraving on the side of the case is poorly finished, for example when I run my finger along the letters it feels very coarse and the bezel doesn't align perfectly. These things ofcourse are just very minor points I make and don't stop me loving this watch. At the end of the day I would highly recommend this timepiece to anyone. Thanks for reading, all the best.
