I sold my Reserve Speedy to another member here, I know everybody is gonna say I'm crazy, but it just never did sit quite right on my wrist so I found it a loving home where it will get the attention it deserves. Here's where i need the help, I am looking at either the 3757 black and rose prowler or the 4475 black mop and gunmetal swiss diver, does anyone have either one of these and what do you think of them? any pics would be greatly appreciated, hopefully some wrist shots. Even if you dont have one of these, let me know which one you like best.

Not my pics

It would be the 4475 for me given the two choices.

Lucky member that got your reserve speedy. Those are gettin hard to find.

Wish someone wanted to part with their all black Aussie in either black or white MOP.

Difficult question. Like them both. If you already have a diver (or more), I'd go for the Prowler... The black with rose gold looks very rich IMO... I'd also check out the SS version of the Prowler... Looks great as well... :thumbup1:

However, if you don't have an Invicta Diver yet, I would go for the 4475... Or take them both... :wink:

Tough call, lightman. I bought the all stainless Prowler last month and since it was free delivery, I wanted to take a look-see. It arrived, I looked, I returned it. I like the S1's with similar style case better than the Prowler.

Just my humble opinion.:001_unsure:

I think I'd go with the Prowler just because it's different and I've got a few divers. I don't have a gunmetal finished watch though, so maybe the diver is the one for me.

I'm glad I could help clear things up for ya.:001_rolleyes:
I'd flip a coin.

And I may be selling my aussie eventually. I'll let you know if I do Dave.

4475, no brainer for me. I don't like busy watches and that prowler looks like it screams "confusing!". Plus I don't think I'd pull off a gold watch without people thinking things about me. Just IMO, I'd take the 4475, and it's an automatic where the Prowler isn't is it?

Which one fits what you want in your next watch? A mechanical automatic or quartz movement with a three hand or chronograph complication. I would say buy the one you really want or save your money a get a nicer watch like an Invicta Reserve Pro Diver or Subaqua III.

Remember new models are coming out soon.:confused1:

Here is the 4473 gun metal Swis Pro Diver with black dial not MOP.

Good luck and let us know what you get.:thumbup1:

Yup I think you are crazy!!! But then I think everyone is crazy except myself (crazy people who think they are sane...Hey that's me!!! DOH!!!) Anyway JMHO that Prowler is HOT!!! the way the lugs curve down makes it a lock to fit just about anybody. I love the Bezel work on it as well. FWIW Invicta and Renato have the Carbon Fiber down to a science. IMO no one does it better. Aside from the original design that it sprang from I don't think I have ever seen that design used by anyone else. Besides release your inner Prowler it's only against the law if you get caught!!lol
BTW just a quick shot of my Aussie Shameless I am:

I thought I was the ONLY WIS that ever returned or sold a Reserve Speedy because it just didn't fit right!

I vote for the quartz Prowler. I own the watch in Invicta IP Blue with gold accents and it is a knockout. It gets as much attention when I wear it as any watch I own and has run perfectly for over a year. The Ronda movement offers a true 10-hour ET on the chrono. Just be aware that it sizes using a center-collar on the pin and if you don't know how to do it, MAJOR grief can arise. PM me if you get the watch and I will give you details.


Sadly, I couldn't wait and paid around $450+ for the piece; currently in black/gold and a few I noticed in blue/gold under $300.

Hey Rich,
You mentioned that you have an 8 1/2 inch wrist. I have a 7 1/2 inch wrist Here is a picture of my 4473. If you think a watch with a 43mm diameter would look good on your wrist then I would go for the 4475. Just keep in mind the size difference between our wrists. By the way the gunmetal finish is very nice looking. Actually I would have to say it is hot looking. Give Triton a try, thats who I bought from.

I actually ordered the prowler, that color combination just really looks good. I'm a little worried that it will be too big, but I got free shipping so worst comes to worst it will go back and I'm not really out anything except time and I have plenty of that
