what do you thik of Seiko SNZF17J1?
Nice! I'd like to see it on an oyster bracelet, though.
Well, I just picked up an Invicta 8926c (or 8926ob as they're now calling it) in the sale forum. This is my very first Invicta, and I must say I am favorably impressed.
The 21 Jewel Myota automatic movement is a little "coarser" feeling than the ETA 2824 in my Debaufre, but you don't have to spend much time hanging around WUS to learn of the Myota's reputation as a solid movement.
In many respects the Invicta 8926 closely resembles The Real Thing. The beveled crystal just over the edge of the bezel. The slope of the bezel itself (which is 120 click and very solid on the watch I received). Even the pointed lugs are reminiscent of The Big R. The bracelet, however sports polished center links and only tapers from 20mm to 18mm at the clasp. The clasp itself is stamped with the Invicta name and logo.
Diameter is the classic 40mm and lug-to-lug length is 48mm. Of course "INVICTA" is engraved on the side of the case. The crown is signed with the logo, which also graces the dial below 12 as well as the "ballast" end of the seconds hand.
Now this is just my opinion, but having owned both of them, the finish and detail on the Invicta 8926 are superior to the Orient 2ER... Sub homage. The WR is 200m to the Orient's 100m. And you get a display caseback to boot.
Orient's in-house automatic movement has a reputation for good accuracy right out of the box, but for my money and recommendation, if someone's looking for a beater Sub or a well-built classically styled every day watch—I say go with the Invicta 8926c.
