Timepieces made for active divers and snorkelers have to be sturdy and extremely functional. However, most companies do not pay attention to the design factor. Those that do struggle to provide good functionality to the user. Thankfully, a few brands like Invicta have mastered the art of balancing functions and good looks.
Today, we will focus on the model number 8926 from Invicta that falls in the category known asdiver’s watches. The watches in this category are made for divers and swimmers who are extremely active and need a timepiece that will help them track the amount of time they spend in the water. What this means is that these watches need to be sturdy, water resistant and always accurate. If the watch is off by even a second, it could be the difference between staying alive and dying of lack of oxygen in the diving tank.
So how does this model measure up to these tough demands? The secret lies in the materials used. The entire timepiece is made from stainless steel. This includes the bezel, the round casing surrounding the face of the watch as well as the bracelet/band attached to it. This adds a touch of much needed solidity to the entire timepiece. This design philosophy in continued in the covering made for the face of the watch. Invicta has used a mineral crystal covering to protect the inner functions of the watch.
One of the most important aspects of thediver’s watchesis the legibility of the numbers and the need for operating without a battery. The 8926 meets both these categories heads on and comes out on top. The watch is completely automatic. This means that it does not need any battery to power it. This is a huge bonus as it allows the watchmakers to make it water resistant up to six hundred and sixty feet or two hundred meters. Also, Invicta uses large dots inside the watch and large numbering on the bezel to indicate the time. It also uses a large display for the date which is placed at the 3’o clock position.
Another important aspect is the safety feature included in the timepiece. The watchmaker has added a clasp to the bracelet. This allows the user to secure the watch so that it will not slip away from his or her wrist even when worn on a wet suit.
While the Invicta 8926 is true in its design when it comes todiver’s watches,what set this model apart are its looks. The timepiece is designed in such a way that it can be used in any situation. It will not look out of place in a formal gathering, in a casual get-together or on a wetsuit at a depth of two hundred meters. Very few timepieces can lay stake to such uniformity.
So, the next time you and your friends want to snorkel, share this info with them and wear identical timepieces to make a unique style statement.
