The blue dialed Pro Dive [amazon.com]r with a silver case is on sale for $42.99.

That is just stupid cheap for a very decent 200m diver with a Seiko NH35A automatic movement. If you can look past the reflexive Invicta hate here on SD, the Pro Diver is very nice watch at the normal street price of $85-ish. $43 is smoking.

Thanks for pointing that out, link has been updated. People hate Invicta for a few reasons:

1) Most of their product line are over-wrought, over-sized design abominations. Especially since Invicta historically has been a respectable brand, those horrendous designs really cheapens their legacy.

2) Their MSRP marketing tactics are really deceiving. Every retailer uses inflated MSRPs to some extent to make the street price seem like a deal, but Invicta has taken it to a whole new level. They call their Pro Diver a $350 watch, or something like that. You will never, never see it selling for anywhere near that. The $43 you spend today on a Pro Diver is not getting you a $350 watch. It's getting you a helluva fine introductory automatic diver, but it's not a premium product.

The Pro Diver is widely recognized as one of their few mature, restrained designs and a relative bargain at the regular street price of $85. The one criticism that can be leveled at that particular model however is it's such a close "homage" to the Rolex Submariner, it's bordering on an outright copy. That really rubs some people the wrong way, especially when there are other similarly spec'ed automatic divers out there in the $125 - $150 range that are original designs.
