Invicta 8927 Pro Diver Automatic Watch Review

Invicta 8927 Pro DiverThe Pro Diver collection is perhaps one of the most well known Invicta collections, and the Invicta 8927 Pro Diver is just one more great watch in this line up. Discover the detailed pros and cons of this watch below, inside of my in depth watch review.

I’m sure that you can tell from the picture below that one of the main attractions of the Invicta 8927 Pro Diver is its unique gold plating/stainless steel two tone trap coupled with the black and gold dial. The design really is impeccable, I love the way these colors work together…However, there’s more to a watch than just the way it looks.

Here are my pros and cons I’ve found with this time piece:

My Invicta 8927 Pro Diver Review

Well, I’ll be straight with you…The thing I didn’t like is the numerous reports of the gold plating wearing off. Apparently, on some of their models Invicta used a different type of plating fixative, or something, and for some reason the gold plating on the Invicta 8927 Pro Diver doesn’t seem to hold up very well…This is NOT a problem common to other two tone Invictas.

Now, this isn’t on every single watch, and chances are that if you decide to get this one that the plating will be just fine, but it’s definitely something to be aware of, and I wouldn’t feel good recommending this watch to anyone without first mentioning that flaw. Invicta should really fix this, and I’m kind of disappointed that this is even a problem in the first place, but eh…What’re ya gonna do? The watch is still great lookin, after all.

Other than the fading of the golden plating, the Invicta 8927 Pro Diver seems to hold up spectacularly…The automatic movement is accurate and should hold its power overnight without much trouble. If you’re having problems with your watch stopping, then your best bet is to go ahead and pick up an automatic winder. This way you’ll never have to worry about wearing your watch all the time just to keep it running, just throw it on the winder and forget about it.

Obviously, the watch is beautiful. The black and gold design is much more vibrant in person (you can kind of get a feel by looking at some of the user submitted photos on Amazon). The stainless steel band feels secure around your wrist, and the case is solidly constructed, with a scalloped edge (I prefer coin edge, personally) unidirectional outer bezel. The bezel is made from stainless steel as well.

As you can see above, the inside of the dial is black with gold accents…The hands and indexes are luminescent, which is really nice. The design is very easy to read…The date window is large and actually readable…Invicta seems to have a problem making their date windows much too small, IMHO, so I was glad to see that on the Invicta 8927 the window is large and clear.

My Verdict of the Invicta 8927 Pro Diver

The watch feels hefty on your wrist, and you can just tell that it’s solidly built. For less than $100 you’re getting an automatic watch that’s very reliable and very attractive AND should last you for quite some time under the proper care. The Pro Diver collection is full of great men’s watches, and I’m excited to let you know that the Invicta 8927 Pro Diver Automatic Watch is another to tack onto that list!

Anyways, that’s about all I’ve got…Thanks for reading through my entire Invicta 8927 Pro Diver review, I hope that you found it useful and helpful and stuff. You’re always welcome on WhatWatches.com, and I hope that next time you’re looking for a watch, you’ll remember my site.
