The Invicta 9937 Pro Diver is nothing less than another tribute to the luxurious Rolex Submariner. What makes it different from its older sister, namely the 8926? Well the 9937 is more improved in terms of quality, and therefore a bit more dollars on the price tag ( $250 as discounted here ). Still a price that keeps Invicta stand among the best price/quality watches on the market, in addition to the fact that it is a design copy of the $4000 famous Rolex watch, a.k.a Submariner ! So let’s start this review and dive into this watch’s features !
The Overall Look of The 9937
A dressy Pro Diver watch that looks elegant. This is how i can describe the
Invicta 9937 in few words. A classy black dial, in contrast with the stainless steel solid case, extended with the brushed inside and polished outside stainless steel band, the links of this model are reported ot be more solid and thicker than the 8926 watch that are also lower in quality. The coin-edge bezel is unidirectional and the numbers on it are written with a nice white bold font. The hour indicators are luminescent in order to be easily seen, as well as the hour hands featuring a nice silver-tone. All under a sapphire-coated window.
The Invicta 9937 watch’s back is also well-done, they call it “the Exhibition Back”. It is a sort of a transparent glass through which you can see almost all the mechanical genius stuff happening live! A.k.a. the Swiss Movement !
Swiss Smooth Movement
This model features a Swiss Sellita SW200 swiss movement which is better in terms of quality than a Japanese Miyota.
Power via Arm Movement
This is another cool feature on the Invicta 9937 Pro Diver. It consists of a 13 parts mechanism that work together to allow the watch to tell time without relying on batteries. Your arm movement, a kinetic energy, is in fact what gives power to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch working.
Like all the Invicta watches from the Pro Diver collection, the 9937 is water resistant to 660 feet ( 200m ), ideal for swimming, and yes you can take a shower with it without problems, but I don’t recommend going to do something extreme like diving with it in your hand. In order to prevent water to get inside the watch, this model is equipped with a screw down crown. It means that after adjusting the date or time on it, you must get it back where it was in order to keep the watch safe from water infiltration ( not doing so will cancel your warranties btw). You can adjust date/time by rotating the crown counterclockwise until it is open.
Design Difference Between the 9937 and the 8926
As you can see in the image, there are two main differences in the design of the two Pro Diver watches. First the design of the unidirectional bezel of the 9937 which is finer than the older version and that resembles a coke bottle cap. The second difference is the typeface by which the chronograph numbers are written and that are again finer than the older watch which has a bolder typeface.
The Invicta 9937 Pro Diver hasn’t reached the Rolex Submariner level, but it’s at least closer to it than the 8926. In other words, with the price tag of $250 you get approximately what you pay for, and this is one of the popular quality\price watches you can find out there. The Invicta watches are delivered in a yellow box. Don’t forget to check Amazon. Last time i checked they had a discount on it. Click here to go to this offer page.
