Diver chronograph watches tend to look, well, rugged. After all, people do go swimming, hiking, mountain climbing, running, and biking with these hardy watches. These watches are built to take whatever their owners throw their way. Durability is definitely the order of the day for these types of watches. With that said, you still want to look good with your diver chronograph, right? You would want a watch that you can wear both outside the water, underwater, and far from the water. Sadly, this is where many models of this rugged type of timepiece differ from each other. Many just look out of place or outright awkward. It takes a certain sense of style and attention to detail to produce a rugged, high performance chronograph that looks as great out of the water as in the water. Thankfully, diver chronograph or high-performance chronograph fans only need to turn to Invicta to get this relatively rare mix of beauty, ruggedness, durability, and performance.

Overview & First Look
Decked out in 18k gold plated brushed casing, the Invicta Men’s 0074 Pro Diver Chronograph looks like it can fit in a classroom, board room, or office as well as it can on a mountain slope, a mountain bike trail, on the beach, or on the waves. That alone shows you the design prowess Invicta brings to the table. Thanks to its 18K gold plating, this watch is luxurious enough to wear in a wide variety of indoor settings. However, great looks are just part of what makes this Invicta model worth writing home about. This watch is water resistant down to a depth of 660 feet. Make no mistake about it, when it comes to ruggedness, durability, and performance, this timepiece more than holds its own. Also, it is priced very affordably. Actually, its pricing is so reasonable, one would be shocked to find out that this watch was actually built in Switzerland-the traditional home of high cost timepieces.
0074 Style: Rugged luxury sports watch
The kinds of things you can do with this watch strapped to your wrist would boggle the minds of active sports people only a few decades ago. Thanks to modern water resistant design, you can find yourself surfing the waves, enjoying the salt spray of the beach, and enjoying the beach at one hour and attending an important business development meeting at a button down meeting in another hour. In both situations, you will be wearing an 18K smart looking active luxury watch that fits just right in. That’s how well-designed this timepiece is.
Movement Type: Swiss quartz movement
Invicta watches are truly head-turners and head-scratches. They turn your heads because of their great designs and mastery of certain watch design niches as well as for their experimental and edgy models. However, Invicta is able to offer all this at very budget-friendly prices. Part of the reason is Invicta’s typically Swiss focus on precision matched with a focus on efficiency. Another part of the answer to the affordability puzzle for Invicta is its Swiss quartz movement. Not only do you get the low price of quartz, you get the high quality Swiss version of it.
