About this deal
Invicta is also recognizable for a number of successful cooperations with other popular franchises and individuals, such as Star Wars, Marvel, S. Coifman, and Jason Taylor. There’ll be an opportunity to talk about them soon. With a gentle 32.5mm in diameter, Lady 14842 is bound to fit on even the most fragile wrists comfortably. Elegant gold-colored stainless steel case, enhanced with six white crystals, powered by Swiss quartz movement shielded by a flame fusion crystal glass stain, and paired with a soft leather brown strap, make this stunning watch one of the most popular Angel models. I would like to call attention to the brand’s marketing strategy, wherein the MSRP of their watches is highly inflated and instantly slashed to give the impression of value and savings.
Though, this is a concern specifically if you wear the watch on the bracelet. If you decide to swap it out for a NATO or other type of strap there’s ample space between the lugs for your fingers to grip. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite so impressed by the watch itself. In fact, I think it’s a bit overhyped. Here’s why.

The solid links of the bracelet are vertically brushed with polished sides. The finish of the bracelet is actually a little nicer than the brushing on the case, with a finer grain. This one employs a pin and collar adjustment system.

The hands are perhaps the most attractive part of the dial. It’s always fun to see them glisten as you turn the watch in the light. The second hand is also quite unique to the 1953, as it features a lollipop that extends out to the edge of the dial. Apart from the featured Invicta Pro Diver 34334, let’s briefly describe one representative from each of the listed successful collections, to get a gist of the rich catalog Invicta offers.

The few watches that get a sliver of a fair chance among enthusiasts are among the Pro Diver line, many of which are homages to the Rolex Submariner. Given that it’s essentially got the same look as the Submariner, the 1953 is a fantastically versatile watch, debatably more so than the 8926OB. It’s got enough water resistance and a tough enough movement to be worn for years to come, yet is dressy enough for less casual events. Its standard lug widths also allow you to dress the 1953 up and down with NATO, rubber, and leather straps. I’m honestly a little puzzled about the intended target audience of this watch. The 1953 Submariner is a peculiar choice for an affordable homage watch at this price point.
Invicta was established in 1837. Translating to “Invincible” in Latin, they were once a prolific watchmaking company. Devastated by the quartz crisis, Invicta was driven to bankruptcy in the 1980s.It’s a watch that shows Invicta is capable of pulling off restrained designs, and I hope to see more like it in the future. While the watch maintains a vintage aesthetic, it wears very much like a modern diver. On the wrist, it feels larger than its 40mm size would suggest.
