Invicta watches are the topic of debate of many watches forums because of the controversy about its quality and reputation. On this page I’ll list down our list of the most popular Invicta watches with a little comment on each one, so bear with me.
1. Invicta 8926 Pro Diver
I don’t know when blogs and websites will stop making reviews on this one. The Invicta 8926 is definitely the most popular of all with 1,333 customer reviews in Amazon. I think there are three main reasons for that : the striking resemblance to the famos Rolex Sumariner, the nice features ( like the Self-winding automatic movements ), and the low price of it especially when on sale as it has reached $75 only.
The Invicta 8926 is also 200m (656 ft.) water resistant, and its case measures 40m in with.
2. Invicta 9211 Speedway
The Invicta Speedway is a design copy success from the American watchmaker. Why I call it a copy? Well some of view may have already recognized or had an impression of deja-vu, the Invicta Speedway is a homage or copy of the Rolex Daytona (which costs $12,000 ). It’s really hard to distinguish the difference when your not close to it.
3. Invicta 9937 Pro Diver
The Invicta 9937 is like the later version of the 8926 with a more sharper unidirectional coin b-edge bezel. It has a Quality Swiss Automatic Movement, which means it doesn’t need a battery. and is also 656 feet water resistant. The Case diameter is 40 millimeters and 12 millimeters thick.
4. Invicta 0924 Subaqua
Invicta Subaqua is the name of another popular collection from the same brand. Just like the Pro Diver, these watches also destined to diving fans but which prefer big face watches. This Invicta watche’s case diameter measures 50mm and 17mm in thincknes which makes a huge watch. As expected, the water resistance is also there with 200m.
5. Invicta 6986 Pro Diver
This is another timepiece from the Pro Diver collection. Unlike the Pro Diver 8926, this one has a bigger face and is 48mm in width. It has a bit of resemblance to the Invicta Venom, but this one is far low in terms of water resistance as it has a rate of 100 m (330 ft) only. Also, the movement of this watch is a quartz movement.
I would like to thank for your reading time and I think that at least of these Invicta watches has grabbed your attention to think about getting one. I have to say that the Invicta 9211 Speedway is my personal favorite, so what’s yours ?
The Latest Garwood Watch
The Garwood has released recently their new timepiece entitled “360”. I think they named it this way because The Garwood have always designed their watches in a cubic shape, so this is the first circular watch in their catalogue. This is also the first watch from the American watchmaker that doesn’t have a wooden strap. The strap of this watch is made of cotton felt with leather on the inside to make it comfortable on the wrist. The dial face of this model is an oil-painted carbon fiber protected under a sapphire crystal glass.
The Garwood Watches
The Garwood watches are all, except the 360 model, designed with a cubic face and has an arrow shaped hour/minute hand, the same arrow shape found on the brand’s logo. Almost all The Garwood watches have a purple color seconds hand, except for the “Great Dane” and “The Sumo” models which have it painted in red. The purple color on the seconds hand is a great choice as it adds a subtle coloring touch that matches both the black and the white dials of their watches.
Wood types used by The Garwood on their timepieces are mainly American Maple wood like on “The Great Dane”, Zebrawood like on “Wakati” and the Indonesian Sandalwood found on “Kuta”. The clasp is made of a Stainless Steel.
The Garwood watches prices range between $149.00 and $159. The watches are delivered with a nicely designed box in which you find the timepiece on a cute small pillow that hold the brand’s logo and a message saying “Enjoy Your New Watch”.
Security and Parental Control
The effort made by the company at the level of Safety and Security is very noticeable in the Luma router. Along with a “enterprise-grade” security, parental control appears to be very easy to set and monitor with predefined options that are at your fingertips via a dedicated smartphone app and has the ability to be customized for your needs. For instance you can quickly block unwanted users, limit the time of how long your kids surf the internet, and even set website ratings for your children. Another interesting feature is the “Allowed control level” that gives you the ability to set the level of control of each person , and in case of children, predefined settings are already made according to your children ages, namely PG-13, PG and G-rated websites.
According to Engadget, prices will jump up after 30 days from then, meaning, $199 per device and $499 for three devices, which is very high after having been only $99 per device and $249 for a three-pack. But it’s still a good price if we consider the Google router. You’ed better pre-order now before prices climb; click Here to go to Amazon. Shipping will start in June.
Luma vs. Eero
One of the direct rival of the Luma is the Echo router that is already in the market with a Amazon rating of four-and-a-half star given by more than 450. That said, a quick comparison is needed for everyone hesitating to buy one of these routers.
The processor of the Luma is more powerful. It’s a Quad-core. The Eero is a 1.0GHz dual-core processor.

What is Silicosis
Silicosis is a lung disease caused by inhaling too much of a naturally-occurring crystal that is called silica dust and which can be found mainly in rocks and sand, which means sandblasters, glass workers, and mining workers are exposed to this type of dust.
According to MedlinePlus, there are three types of silicosis : Chronic, Accelerated and Acute silicosis.
Like every progressive disease, looking for the starting point from which the disease comes is the first step to limit the exposure. In order to prevent the disease from getting worse, you must stop the source of silica exposure. Healthline reported that there is no specific medical treatment to silicosis. Only respiratory infections and symptoms can be treated or reduced by using antibiotics and cough medicine.Oxygen masks are also used by some silicosis sufferers.
Other methods to prevent Silicosis :
- When drilling, grinding, cutting use wet methods and water sprays.
- For cleaning surfaces, avoid using compressed air
- Eat and drink away from crystalline silica dust.
- Use local ventilation and blasting cabinets.
