Product Description

The bold look of silver and black adds extra drama to the amazing Invicta Men’s 1798 Russian Diver Collection Multi-Function Watch that features a stainless steel chain joining to a prominent silver-tone crown. A black rubber band features silver-tone stainless steel segments for a rugged look, while a stainless steel case is topped by a notched silver-tone stainless steel bezel. A black dial displays luminescent green Arabic numeral hour indicators at the 2, 4, 8, 10 and 12 o’clock positions and luminescent bar hour indicators at remaining positions, along with luminous hands powered by reliable Japanese quartz movement. Four multifunction sub-dials offering 60-second, 24-hour, day and date displays round out this bold timepiece. This watch presents itself in a handsome yellow Invicta gift box and is water resistant to 330 feet (100 m).

Russian Diver Collection

Originally created to honor the 1959 watch commissioned by the Russian Naval Fleet, Invicta’s Russian Diver commands attention. Strikingly oversized with its complementing Signature crown cap and surgical stainless steel or titanium construction, the truly bold Russian Diver proudly possesses the distinction of being Invicta’s largest timepiece. Yet, evolving to accommodate demand, these patented designs now include models fit for any woman’s bidding. Equally comfortable scaling the heights of adventure or arriving for dinner, this Russian Diver will never be in doubt and always able to fulfill the orders of any mission.

Almost as big as one of Dolly Parton’s bras.

(What’s this?)
This is the third Invicta watch I’ve had now, and I’m noticing a trend in how big these suckers are. It sure as heck nets attention from whoever sees it, that’s for sure. It’s probably safe to assume that anyone with a smaller watch will do a double take, then hang their head in shame. Ok, maybe not. Still, this watch is pretty cool when you get to see it in-person. I didn’t get to do any diving with it on, but it certainly does well underwater, be it in a pool or just in the shower. With the current price it’s at, I’d say that you’d be doing just fine buying this watch if you need one resistant to water, or one that just looks unique with the ‘necklace’ as some people call it.

Despite the watch looking like it might not be comfortable with the chain from the cap hanging down a little bit, wearing this watch doesn’t feel any different from standard-sized ones I’ve owned in the past. The polyurethane band is nice and smooth, and the notches to adjust it are spaced perfectly. I have small wrists and it was nice being able to have it adjusted just right, Baby Bear style, without being too loose or as tight as a nun. The luminous hour/minute marker and hands worked pretty well, though they could’ve been a little brighter, and all of the sub-dials do their jobs without any issues. Really, I can’t say anything bad about how the watch functions as an ordinary watch. The only problem with the design could be that reading the sub-dials could take a little adjusting because of how small the numbers are. But that might just be me since I’m not much of a watch person, and most of the ones I’ve had were standard watches without sub-dials. And as usual, the huge yellow box that the watch comes in helps the presentation a lot. If you get this as a gift for someone, it’s going to look like you’re presenting them with some kind of rare artifact.

I still don’t understand why these watches are priced so high, yet actually sell for much less. Maybe it’s just to make them seem like higher quality watches than they are? As it is, the 1798 Russian Diver is my favorite of the collection. It doesn’t look too gaudy or anything, and it’s nice having a watch with the stem on the left side so it doesn’t jab into your hand when bending your wrist (if you wear it on your left hand anyway). Give this one a shot if you’ve got the money to spare.

Noting wrong with it

I have owned this watch for 2 years it has held up well and still functions great. Not sure why the other 2 raters are focusing on details that don’t really have anything to do with the function or the Quality of the watch.
As for the “Necklace” if you don’t understand its propose you don’t know much about the older style dive watches.

The Watch is big and the colors show up and I get lots of positive comments. The rubber strap helps keep the wt down and is comfortable to wear.
Yes it is a Japan movement but I have not had an issue with it. Have to say it as good as all those Rice bikes I own that run forever

For the price, this watch is bold, big and heavy. I got this watch for my husband. He has a large watch collection, mostly made of Movado, TAG Heuer, Christian Audigier, Skagen and Bulova. This watch fits nicely into his collection of dress, casual, and sport watches. I would say this watch is more of a casual dress watch. It stands out among his other watches because of the size. The watch comes in a large yellow box, the packaging is nice, the watch wraps around a little yellow pillow and it also comes with a wipe cleaning cloth. If a man has a smaller wrist, this isn’t the watch for him, as the face is large and band is thick (rubber). I would definitely say this watch is a conversational piece.
