Review Details

Look & Feel: 4.5/5

The Invicta 6981 Pro Diver commands attention. It gets noticed early, often and many times starts the conversation. For a watch, so easily within just about everyone's reach, this says a lot.

The Design elements are clearly tuned toward visual beauty and the result is stunning. But don't let that fool you, this is a timepiece not just a bracelet and it does an excellent job in all respects.

The 48mm circular black and gold case dominates your wrist. Large, bold and unforgettable, the Invicta 6981 Pro Diver makes a statement. It sits a high off the wrist and is very thick, with three crowns on the right side and the word Invicta engraved on the left. Not very friendly to those with a slender wrist..

Keeping the Pro Diver in place is simple as the band is easy to adjust and does a good job of holding the case in place. The poly band is not the most durable so treat it with respect. The black and gold color inlay carries the theme into the band nicely, finishing the look with style.

This baby is heavy! However, the balance is right and it feels solid and substantial sitting on the wrist. Another aspect that makes this timepiece feel so right, especially for the money.

Build Quality & Durability: 4/5

The watch band is the chief source of most complaints about the Invicta 6981 ProDiver. It feels cheap and has been known to wear out and even break in half with heavy use. However, when treated with care, many have noted that they have had no problems with the band. One thing to keep in mind is that the price of this watch is very low and it seems the band is an area where the designers took some of the cost out in order to deliver such an excellent timepiece.

Price: 5/5

The price for the Invicta 6981 Pro Diver boggles my mind. This beauty feels like a steal at the century mark. I know there are complaints about the band, but at this price I am surprised. This watch would still be a steal at this price if it didn't come with a band at all. So if you really want a great watch for the money, the Invicta 6981 Pro Diver is tough to beat.
