    Need waterproff advice about Invicta 10667 diver

    New to this forum- value the knowledge base of "experience". I bought my first Invicta- a 10667 "diver". Took to the watch shop (authentic swiss trained technician, nice Swiss lady who runs shop) for band adjusment and she advised me that it was not truly waterproof, not to even shower in it. She said "You should see all the "waterproof" Invictas we get in here with water inside them." Now I don't dive, but would like the freedom to dunk my wrist if I have to without fear. Any advice about the lack of waterproofing in this brand? It is quartz

    Her opinion is no more valuable than anyone else's here; however it's nice that she was pleasant and had your best interests in mind.

    Get the watch pressure tested. Then you'll know the truth. Opinions aren't very useful compared to test results.

    IN MY OPINION you should Send it back to INVICTER & purchase another brand.You won't find much love here for them.
    They are notorious for crappy watches,CRAPPY SERVICE & SHADY SALESMAN

    As far as I know Invicta has poor Quality Control. Some Invictas are good quality, others are bad, it depends on your luck.

    About the waterproofing, just get it tested at a local watch shop. It is really cheap and will show you if the watch is waterproof or not.

    LOL- no harm, no foul- prefer succinct to fluff. Did not pay over $60 for it, like the look. ()My indiglo timex was $32). I am newly addicted to the watch hunt, so it was a first time purchase. Found this forum while investigating the waterproof issue- that's a win! Probably worth the moey for hat alone.

    So- If the presse test is a fail, I can return the watch based on that?

    The truth hurts....But she told you the truth.
    I doubt you can return it, unless you used a credit card....In which case, whatever...Return it and buy something that is better.
    This is my expert opinion.
