Invicta 8926 Mod - Yachtmaster Homage - SOLD
Available on

I'm cleaning out my watch case and I've decided to put one of my Invicta 8926 builds up for sale. Say what you will about Invicta, this is a solid watch for the price. The NH35A movement is pretty much bulletproof and very easy to operate. My only complaint post-mod was the flimsy stock bracelet so I swapped it out for a much better oyster style bracelet with solid end links. I've built what I like to call the "Notmaster" or a Yachtmaster homage for about 2% of the price.
Overall the watch is in really good shape. The watch has been removed of logos: on the side of the case, on the caseback and on the rotor. Some very light hairline scratches on the polished surfaces but barely worth noting. There are very slight marks from bracelet changes but nothing too serious (as you can see from the pictures). The Dagaz dial really looks great in the light, the sunburst effect is beautiful when viewed outside. Pair that with the polished surfaces on the case and bracelet alongside the stainless steel bezel and you'll soon realize why people lust after the real thing.There is a nick on the bezel around the 32 minute mark. I don't know if this could be brushed out to be fixed but I bought the bezel for like $30 on a certain auction site so I'm sure you could swap it out if needed. The lume on the stock hands and Dagaz dial shines pretty good - it's no Pelagos but you'll notice it after coming inside on a sunny day.

I'm looking for $100 shipped to your door (CONUS). It cost me about $200 to build the watch so I'm certainly not looking to get my money back. I would prefer to sell it to someone who will enjoy it rather than it just sit in my watch case. Maybe you're nervous about modifying an 8926 and would like a finished product? Or maybe you want to modify an 8926 and want to start with a case that's had the logos removed and an upgraded bracelet? Maybe you've always wanted the real deal but could never justify spending so much?
I should note that I'm not a professional watchmaker, rather an amateur tinkerer, so please don't expect something along the lines of if you were to buy this from one of the many distinguished watch builders. Having said that I think this watch is very well built and has had no problems with time keeping or any other like issues. One item to note - the date turns over around 9pm instead of midnight. I don't feel like opening up the case to fix it. A local jeweler would probably do it for less than $20 or you could tackle the job yourself if you're comfortable with removing and replacing hands.
Having said all of that, I feel like this is a fair price considering the work done, the upgraded bracelet, the nicked bezel and the 3hr date difference.
The watch is currently sized to a 6.75" wrist and comes with 5 spare links.
Let me know if you have any questions about the watch or would like more pictures.
Thanks for looking!
