    Question about my invicta pro diver 8926

    Hey all,

    I have an invicta prodiver that I have been having some probelms with. I purchased the watch new last year and after a month the watch completely quit working. I sent it back to invicta for warranty repair. 3 months later I got it back and it just didnt seem like they repaired it correctly. It worked ok for a while but I think the power reserve is supposed to be 40 hrs or so. If i wear it all day, it will stop working after about 4 hours. I may be lucky if it will make it through the night still running the next day. But, when it came back from the factory, it seems like the rotor is to tight. it doesnt rotate smoothly. My watch winder cant even keep the watch wound. Its like the rotor gets stuck, almost like the screwed the rotor down to tight or the back casing is to tight and is pushing down on the rotor. And the most recent thing that has started with in in the past couple months, it will start running fast. After about 2-3 hours, it is 20 min fast. I have to set it back about every 2-3 hours. Any ideas what is going on with it? It is the NH25A movement in it.

    thanks for your help

    Jeff

    Don't waste any more time on warranty repairs. They will end up costing you more in the long run. Honestly, a $15 Timex is a better investment and if you want a good diver, get a Seiko, Orient, Momentum, or other reputable brand (lots of reviews on this site).

    This seems to be par for the course when it comes to Invicta's QC. As for taking your movement apart, unless you've got some training working on automatic movements, you're far more likely to make things worse. If you really like the watch, you can always have the movement replaced by a local watchmaker.

    In the long run, for better or worse, it may be less expensive to buy another one.

    Invictas can be perfectly good watches if they don't break, but their CS and warranty service is notoriously terrible (essentially non-existent). The good news about that, however, is that it's possible your watch needs only a relatively simple repair. You won't know until you have a watchmaker look at it, though. As bluloo notes, don't attempt to fix it yourself -- you are basically guaranteed to ruin the watch.

    I'm curious - why wouldn't you wear your Rolex to work? Rolexes are made to be "work" watches and the Sub is very durable.
    As my mechanic used to say, "Use the right tool for the job and you will have superior results, use the wrong tool and you'll end up doing it over". You used the wrong tool (watch)

    The first thing I would check is if the movement has been magnetized, since gaining 20 minutes in 3 hours is not normal, even for an Invicta.
