A friend is heavily into Invicta watches..the really big gaudy ones..don't know what models and after looking at them, I questioned the 200M rating as the crowns do not screw down. Is a screw down crown absolutely necessary for a 200m rating?

No, it isn't necessary for a 200m watch to have a screw down crown, as recently demonstrated by Fortis. My Zeno Army diver is also rated to 200m and does not have a screw down crown.

However, most pro diving watches do have screw down crowns.

Cheers,
Griff
