I have been obsessed with Invictas for some time now. I own three and my wife has two. After reading only a few threads it seems that the general consensus is that Invictas are (DELETED). I've never had problems with them until now. The rubber on both of the straps that my coalition model has cracked. Invicta sells replacement bands on their website ($100 each) but they are always out of stock. So now I have mixed feelings about this brand. Anyone know where I can find new straps for a Coalition (Model #0671) .

Just 3 days ago I laid to rest my Reserve Pro Diver.🤬 😡🤬
Bernie (my watch guy) told me he can't fix it...and keep the cost of repairs below the cost of buying a new one. I have mixed emotions here. The movement, a Sellita SW-200, was insanely accurate, but the actual watch was too big and heavy for my liking.
Now I'm kinda wondering how much longer my regular Pro Diver will last. :unsure:
Good thing I have my post-World War 2 Hamiltons to keep me happy!

I think the older, smaller Pro Divers are atill a good value for an every day watch. The 9937OB is just a small step ahead with the SW-200 movement.
You all know how much I like Seiko as a company, but I have to say the only Pro Diver I own that has given me any trouble is one with the NH25A movement.

I thought that you just made that up in Photo Shop! Didn't know that it was a real item. Live and learn!

Jeepers SFwG, you make it sound like Invicta makes its own :poop: polish!

Oops! - maybe I shouldn't have said that...I don't believe Eyal Lalo would financially compensate me for coming up with a new marketing idea for him!

Plenty of Independent watch brands out there with 100% more original and not hideous designs with known reliable movements and some even with Swiss movements. I would avoid Invicta unless they have something truly unique that you can't get elsewhere.

A) Technically, no it isn't.
B) While you may not agree with oak1971, he's not violating our Rules Of Conduct.
C) As this is only your first posting on your first thread, I suggest you not be in such a hurry to become an opinionated Noob!
