A beautiful, before-all-the-idiocy Invicta Grand Diver, with iconic Miyota automatic movement, silver sunburst dial and rich, dark blue bezel. A very sharp combination that could easily be worn as a semi-dress or casual watch. So sad Invicta couldn't just stick with making excellent watches like this one.

Have an excellent 'front 9' of your weekend, all!

Very nice Sicko wartch, Mr. Gage...is that an aftermarket bezel? Either way, it's highly beautimous, especially with that strap, my young Jedi Seiko Knight friend. 8-)

Thank you Mortuus! It is, in fact, the SBDC053 with the OEM bezel and insert. One of the things that's super enjoyable about this model is how variable the blue in both the dial and insert are; in different lighting the color and look changes almost completely.

I was hesitant to jump on this bandwagon, but these new yet-unnicknamed divers are absolute home runs. Perhaps slightly bigger than would be my preference, but that's why I have the SLA017... These actually wear slightly larger than I was anticipating, but for most people I suspect the size is perfect.

BTW, that is a very nice Invicta. I almost forget they used to make decent affordables way back when, you know, before gen-u-whine meteorite dials and their nuclear fusion crystals that are made in a particle collider operated by granny lay-lo.

Many thanks, Sao Man! I have a thing about the old Invicter Pro-Divers & Grand Divers, but it's largly under control, as there are only so many you can buy out there...

Well, given the awesome pull of attraction I have for the watch you've seleceted today, I'm gonna have to add it to one of my watch lists, more than likely the "Must Get" list. I'm a very big fan of those bezel inserts, so much so that, like many who came before me, I took one of my blue Seiko 5's with that same insert and had THIS made, complete with new case back, that I have decided to switch over to for the rest of the day...

...and it still gets the 'ol juices flowing, too. Even Conjurer, at HIS advanced age can achieve a moderate renewal to his reproductive capabilities...of course, it's only a minor renewal, to be sure, and of short duration, as well; I mean, it's just a freakin' watch, and it can't work miracles, for chrissake. :???:

These are amazing, eh TikTok? I’m super impressed. Lot of quality for the money and easily a step above the Sumo.

Been really enjoying mine on the MM300 rubber. It’s like it’s made for this watch.
