    Up for grabs is a nice example of a Royal Marine diver, which belongs to perhaps the most popular vintage Invicta model line. These were high-quality dive watches, featuring impressive cases. This example is 38mm excluding the screw-down crown.

    The case is full steel, of course, in very good condition, and features the cool, trademark Invicta fish emblem on the back. I consider this emblem to be one the most attractive of any that I have seen. There are some light scratches on the back, but no deep gouges, or anything off-putting.

    The dial is unusual for a diver, as it is a pie-pan style, and features a vertically brushed linen interior. It is in excellent condition, as is the hand-set. The bezel is also in excellent condition, with perfect tension, and is, to my eye, very attractive. Note that the slightly faded blue appears lighter or darker, depending on the lighting.

    The movement is an A Schild-based automatic (caliber unknown); no photos, but guaranteed to be in condition consistent with the rest of the watch.

    The crystal is excellent, as is the screw-down crown, which winds and sets smoothly.

    The strap is excellent, and is a true TROPIC Sport.

    The watch is working well, but has not been timed, and the last service date in unknown.

    This model is not easy to find on the market, and especially in such good condition. I see only one other at the moment, linked below, which is in inferior condition, and has a poor replacement crown.

    Absolutely love these. Back when Invicta wasn’t what we think of today.
