Well after days of obsessively going to JC PENNYS and pondering "Should I buy an INVICTA MENS RUSSIAN DIVER QUINOTAUR WATCH?" I finally did it and after shelling out Who could resist Its 399.00 price reduced to only $280.00 bucks after using my 10 dollars off coupon and there 25% off Christmas sale price...I put it on and wore it out of the store like a new pair of shoes...well here I am an hour later with my hand rubbed raw!!!!! The crown is so big it has rubbed my hand raw!!!! Is this supposed to happen? I am on the verge of returning the damb thing!!!!! HELP any experiences or advise...If Not I am marching right back to JC and getting my money back....The watch is flawless though...But almost 300 and it hurts to wear it??? You can sort of see the rubbed hand!! Sorry about the horrible pics..I am supposed to get a new camera soon.... See ya!

Hi Tat,

Try wearing it higher on your arm. You may have to adjust the bracelet. That's the problem with large crown systems.

I'm lucky being left-handed. I wear my watches on my right wrist. I can wear mine and it doesn't bother me in the least bit. I can see why you'd want to return it though. I couldn't stand the irritation. As a matter of fact, I have an Invicta Lefty watch that I never wear because the crown is on the left side and it bites into the back of my hand.

Good Luck pal.

I own 4 versions of the RD and I love them. I have never had an issue with wearing it. It appears you have the rubber strap version. That may be the issue and not the case. Several of my rubber strap watches ( renato and others) get loose with the heat and need to be cinched up a bit as the day goes on. Try that before returning it.

Using a 15% coupon at a certain network can also get you the square mechanical diver for about $575 or the titanium one for about $600.

Tatooine315 that is not a normal thing. I have a few RDs and have never had a problem with the canteen cap digging into my hand. Try what MacDaddy suggested wear it higher and Kiomaster is right about the rubber strap, so if you have a 26mm leather strap swap it. If not take it back and get something else. Hope this helps.

I've always wondered about the problem you're having with it. Sorry it's not working for you.

Own that watch in yellow. Works much better on the right hand. Mine does the same thing. Move it up on the wrist it slides right back down. Never thought about changing the strap but its a thought.

tat... if the pic you posted is how you are wearing it I can understand why you are having a problem. You definetly need to move it back further on the wrist. I have a Quinotar also and had the same problem.

I know how you feel. I have an old Swiss Military that rubbed a callous on my left hand and bothered me long after I quit wearing the watch.

Those who have the watch probably have the best advice, but I'm wondering if you wear the band tightly around your wrist?

If so, loosening it might give the watch more room to move when you flex your wrist in such a way as to cause friction.

If you already have a sore on your wrist, you're probably better off not wearing it until it heals.

Personally, given my experience, I am leery of all large watches.

I had an issue with my 3824. It had such a sharp crown that I had to take it to my jeweler to have him grind the sharp edges down. It is perfect now and you can't tell visually that it has been altered but you can tell when you feel it with your fingers. It is much more comfortable now. I have never had this issue with any of my Invictas before.

I agree with you. There comes a point IMHO that it is just too darn big!:blink:

about 47 to 48mm is the max for me. And that ain't small!

I have a Russian Diver and it "Lets you know" you have it on.

I think it improved my "so-so" golf game. I played a round with it on. And I think the added weight helped with the speed of my swing !!!!!

Put the top of your hand on a diet. Seriously, I think if you loosen it a hair, it will move backwards as your hand moves upwards.
