Dial and Hands
My first impression looking at the dial was that the dial is well detailed and it is highly inspired by the Rolex Daytona watch. Looking at this watch from a distance it is very hard to tell that it is not the original but an homage watch. Invicta detailed the dial with perfection and it looks just stunning.
The outline of the dial got second markers in black rectangular shapes on the white dial surface which actually looks between. In between the interval of one second to another, there are four small markers that make the watch extremely detailed.
By looking at the inner dial carefully, you can notice that there are diamond-shaped textures applied and that makes it look gorgeous. Below the second markers, there are the minute markers and these markers are filled with luminous.
The 3 o’clock position sub-dial is a 24-hour indicator. On a black ring, there are markers printed in a 2-hour interval. The design of the sub-dial match with the dial and the black and white combination makes it look classy. The sub-dial hand is in silver to match with the other hands.
The other two sub-dials mean the sub-dials of 6 and 9 o’clock are for chronograph messing sub-dials. For measuring the second the sub-dial of 6 o’clock is used and to measure the minute the sub-dial of 9 o’clock comes into action.
All three sub-dials got the same design of a white surface and a black ring where the markers are printed. Also, the color and size of the sub-dials hands are the same and Invicta tried to make the watch dial as symmetric as possible.
Between 4 and 5 o’clock, there is a small cutout for date displaying. The color of the date window is the same as the dial surface and the date color is in black. A date window at this position is quite rare in wristwatches but it still looks good on this watch.
Among the three hands of this watch, the hour and the minute hands are luminous filled which makes these hands glow in the dark. The glow is quite bright and you can easily see the time no matter how the lighting condition is. All the minute markers also glow for having luminosity. Overall the dial design is very detailed and eye-catchy.
The case design of Invicta Speedway 9211 is quite impressive and the diameter of it is 40mm. This 40mm case will look a bit clunky on small wrists so for those who like to wear watches bold for them this is good. But if you do not like bold watches and you have a small wrist then you should avoid this watch.
For those who have medium size wrist, this 40mm case size is just perfect and will look beautiful on their wrists. Also, the case size makes this watch quite ideal to wear with formal attire. So you can wear this watch on any formal or informal occasion.
The finish of the watch looks magnificent and super eye-catchy. All the sides along with the sides of the lugs are polished and quite exposed which makes it very shiny looking. The lugs’ upper surface of the watch is brushed and this type of contrast and detailed case design is quite rare to see in affordable watches but these small things make Invicta different and special.
This is a chronograph watch and the tachymeter of the watch is placed on the bezel on top of the case. The bezel makes this watch bold looking and there the tachymeter scale is printed using black ink. For making the watch case look emphasizing and gives it a remarkable look the bezel plays a big role.
On the right, the polished case is pronounced and it makes two crown guards while simply looks stunning. Between these two guards, there is a beautiful looking screw-down crown at the 3 o’clock position. For using the chronograph feature there is a button on top of the crown which starts/stops and below the crown, there is another button to reset the feature.
Along with the crown the chronograph buttons are also screw-down. For easy gripping, the buttons and the crows got notched edges which come in handy and increase the beauty of the watch.
The thickness of the watch case is 13mm and when you wear it, it does not seem that pronounced and sit still on your wrist. Its case back is screw-down as well and that makes it capable of resisting water up to 200 meters.
On top of the dial, there is a mineral glass that makes sure the dial is protected. Looking at the price point mineral crystal seems good and as this an homage affordable watch so we shouldn’t expect more. It is a scratch-resistant crystal so it is capable of keeping the watch legible for a long time and it surely will.
The Invicta Speedway 9211 is a suitable watch to do professional marine activity thanks to its 200 meters’ water-resistant feature. For having this high water-resistant certification, you can do any sort of activity without taking off this watch.
The screw-down case back and the beautiful looking screw-down crown made it capable of resisting water and made it a professional-grade diver watch. So no more worries about damaging the watch to water exposure and you can enjoy water sports and pool parties without any harm to your favorite wristwatch.
Invicta Speedway 9211 comes with a high-quality quartz movement. The movement is Japanese quartz and the quality of the movement is top class as the movement is developed by a well-known Japanese company Seiko. This movement is reliable for being made of high-quality parts and accurate at the same time.
While a manual or automatic movement loses 2 seconds a day there a quartz movement does not lose more than 2 seconds in a month. So you can see how accurate the movement is. Also, a manual movement needs to be winded after a certain time but you do not have to do any such thing on quartz movement to keep the watch running.
The battery inside the movement is impressive in the case of power reserve. You’ll get months of power reserve from this watch so it is also easy to maintain. The tick movement of the second hand is quite satisfying to see as well. For supporting hacking, you can set the exact time including the second.
This Invicta watch has a 22mm width stainless steel bracelet. For being made of stainless steel it is corrosion resistant and feels quite premium. The sides of the
Bracelet is brushed and the middle part is brushed which is actually a nice touch and adds more construct to the bracelet.
The bracelet is made of high-quality material and it is comfortable to wear. To make it secure on your wrist there is a fold-over clasp as the safety feature.
