That is one of the only watches that tempted me! I am not a huge MOP person but that watch looked good!

Didn't buy anything either. I watched some of the shows, it was really too much. Most of my purchases lately have been from online sites.

Unfortunately there is nothing within the current selections or multiple variations of that interest me. I am becoming less and less interested in Invicta.

Same here, all of what was played up with so much BS proved to be NOT good enough deals for me, or what was possibly a good deal was still priced out of my range, or was not my style.

I would have took one of these, but I could no way afford it.

I seem to like the older Invicta models much more than much of what I seen on this sales event. I might be wrong on this but did the pricing seem better durring their Spring Forward event. I remember purchasing an ani-digi Sea Spider at a good price durring that event. What do you think? ....Bob

I feel the same way. If I were to add a MOP dial to my collection I think this would be the one.

Yes that watch was Smokin, I am generally the last person too jump on a MOP dial but wow!

You're right, the prices were driven up higher to capitalize on the gifting season!

Comparing the Sea Spider to the SAN III isnt a good comparison Bob. Thats comparing Apples to Oranges, the SAN III has too be twice the cost to MFG then the Sea Spider especially that one!

Hi Ron, I was not comparing the Sea Spider to the Subaqua Noma. Iwas asking if the pricing seemedbetter at The Spring Forward event. I purchased a timepiece back than and only mentioned the Sea Spider, which was what I purchased. ....Bob

I actually thought the prices where pretty damned good.

S1 touring $279
SAN III's for less then $400.00

Thats just a couple that peeked my interest, but as a whole I think the pricing was right in line with what they have done all year long. I think you are getting less for the same money, with the Isa craze, but a Swiss Quartz is a swiss Quartz IMO. Sure some have better features then others, but the Chrono's have been played too death anyways. I think Invicta has done a great job of keeping the prices down, even reducing some too a point that it pisses some people off.

Your right, maybe it was just the models that were offered or too many quartz watches this time around. BUT, I did like the S1 touring edition. I would like to see an automatic Touring S1. ....Bob

I dont think we will ever see this, and the main reason is the watch signature is its dial. This would be hard to achieve with a 3 hand or even a Val 7750!
