Invicta’s Russian Diver collection is one of the most recognizable series of the watchmaker. The most prominent traits of the Russian Diver collection are its large size, and even more, its distinctive crown with a cap protector and a chain. The lineage was originally manufactured as a tribute to the timepiece that was made on demand of the Russian Naval Fleet, at the end of the 1950s, but since then, it evolved in many forms. The series offers various different-colored models, but they all feature two aforementioned attributes, supplemented with originally designed dials.
As expected from an Invicta product, these timepieces aremade with solid stainless steel cases and with Swiss quartz mechanisms. The case backs with screws are also constructed of steel. Another common quality is the flame fusion crystal used to protect the dial. Apart from caps and chains, some of the timepieces from the Russian Diver line are additionally secured with rubber around their cases.
As previously pointed, the dials are quite original and come in different patterns (for example, sunray or wrinkle). Despite the diversity and originality, they are all in rather conservatives colors. Apart from the aesthetical aspect, they also incorporate functionality and display some of the additional functions. Some of them include chronographs, while others have GMT features. Vast majority of products from the series are with polyurethane bands with steel inserts and reinforcements. There are also models with interchangeable straps. Those sets include rubber, leather and steel bracelets.
If you are going to look for a possible flaw of the line, you might point out the fact that despite its name and naval origin, timepieces from the collection cannot stand water pressures bellow 100 meters below the surface.
