eh TS.. ask u something..

why my watch don't have the word swiss movt (at 6o'clock position) as shown in the pic ??

oh my, im expecting this watch also.
TS can you confirm if there is really no "swiss Movt" word below. it's a part of what we paid for.

how come the one shown here and at amazon have?

please enlighten us. if this is the case, do we have the option to at least change order?

anyway, i haven't received mine. hope it does have the "swiss movt" word on it.

thanks

not too sure, could be the picture is too old or invicta revised it, the model is still the same.
You may want to email them to clarify.

The black combat which looks similar is also the same without the word.
G diver and most of the earlier models in the mo are from Amazon directly.
Signature diver is the only diver that has the swiss on it.
?? email amazon or invicta??

Hi,
Once it's in SG, i cannot change anymore sorry.
I'm just a channel to organise bringing them over.

This particular model is directly from Amazon. I think they removed the word.
You may want to check with Invictawatch.com since it's authentically from them and the model number remains the same

i think you can check out invictawatch.com directly since Amazons are just middle men.

You should login to invictawatch.com anyway because that is where you can register your watch.

On the other hand i am asking my other direct vendor who we got all the newer ones, mainly force/sl/spiders,etc.
They are also in Amazon and as trustworthy
His website also has the swiss movement thing but i checked all the came, none has the word.

He may know better, but i think it's simply Invicta took it off for their newer ones.
Cause Black combat and gun metal carbon fibre, are definitely new releases and they no longer have the word imprinted, but only imprinted on the back case.

Will wait for his reply.
Thanks for pointing that out though

ok i got a nasty reply from the vendor shooting me back
I think they are a little frustrated as i kept changing order.

Basically what they are trying to tell me is.
1) Invicta's Divers now ( All newer models) ,put their movements stated on their back only, not front. To identify between the new and old batch.
2) This extreme diver is Invicta's best selling model for diver, so it was relaunched for many seasons without phasing out.
Invicta did not release any new pictures as it's basically an old model but revised revised and relaunched.
3) Asked do i see any other differences that scare us? No
4) Older batches with the Swiss word are all sold out, and if it's not, it had probably expended much of it's battery life

Hope this clarifies everyone's doubts.
You can register it online if you are just worried about the authenticity .

Got the watches.

Grand diver.
No swiss word imprint, no problem, still look damn good.
I managed to register,means authentic that's what i care.
My 90yo half blind granny from far also can see.
Where can you find something similar at this price

Trimix Phantom
Worth every penny
Damn sturdy and high class.
The face is nicer that in the pictures.

10/10 MO
Both are very well built, definitely value for money.

Saying from a view of a watch lover, w 1 panarai, 1 ball and 1 roc daytona.
hi, do u mind posting a wrist shot of the grand diver?

I don't see the problem you're referring.
The straps are double bolted in with metal pins, it's very secure
Then the two rubber holder that holds the excess strap should be tight.
If it's not tight then i'm worried, won't break la u think rubber band meh haha
Infact the band fits the buckle precisely just nice, which shows it's well made.
ya not a prob anymore..
i try to wear it down abit.. now is not as tight..

btw.. how u reg the watch online huh? using singapore address??
how u input the post code??
thx

anyone with a small wrist having the same prob as me?

i brought my watch (s.steel strap) to a local shop today to adjust the length. they told me they removed the maximum amount but its still a tad too lose for me (will slip down my wrist)

wonder if theres such a thing as a limit of amount of s.steel strap they can remove?
