Looking for the bargain of the year? This may be it for you. This Speedway 9211 is at the higher spectrum of Invicta watches, it doesn’t really feel like an Invicta at all actually, but more like a high quality luxury watch. The Speedway 9211 usually retails at around $350, but I have found it online at up to an 80% discount! This watch is actually more of a quality luxury/dive watch, but is also suitable for everyday use, and can add a fancy touch to a modern fashion look.
Style and Build of the Speedway 9211
At the price that this watch is currently available at, you most likely wouldn’t expect too much, in terms of quality or style. A watch in this price range would usually be built with fairly low quality materials and might not last you the year, but the 9211 is built with fine detail and is sure to last you many years. The Speedway 9211 is an absolute steel at it’s current discounted price.
This bargain timepiece has a hefty stainless steel construction, with very fine laser engraved details, such as the logo emblem in multiple locations, and the numbered bezel. I really like the stainless steel band on this model as well, which is a very fashionable brushed/polished two tone style, and also includes a functional fold over clasp for secure locking. The dials on the side of the face are also large and easy to use, making them ideal to adjust even while under water.
The dial window is made of a nice crystal clear mineral material, which I am not sure is scratch resistant or not, but for me has stood up fairly well with consistent day to day use. One of the standout features of this model is it’s shock resistance capability, which is excellent for those inevitable bumps and bashes during snorkelling or scuba diving.
Comfort and Performance
I found the Speedway 9211 to be very comfortable, but I am used to large watches, and have tried a large variety of dive watches. The comfort for you would depend on weather or not you like watches on the slightly bulky side, the 9211 comes in at 1.4 pounds. When adjusted to your proper wrist sized and fastened properly, the fit is snug and secure. I would recommend wearing this watch a little tighter then normal due to it’s weight, it’s best to avoid side to side movement on the wrist.
This watch is considered a beginner to intermediate level divers watch, and can go to depths of 660 feet without any issues. The 9211 works on a Japanese quartz movement, and the overall performance is very good, especially considering the price. If your more of an advanced diver you may want to have a look at something a little more sophisticated, like the Seiko SRP307.
