Here are pics of a Subaqua Noma II (3-hand) that I received in trade.

It's a 47mm with an ETA 2824-2, sapphire crystals, 500M WR and is just gorgeous!

I feel grateful to snag this watch as they are harder to find. I do wish that Invicta used the gas tubes as they did with the prototypes. Still . . . the lume is just fantastic!

[ Link To Jim S. review of the SAII Prototype. This is a great review on what they "thought" was to be the final execution of the SAII.]


I am now on the look for the 7750 version, preferably with a Meteorite dial. :)

In any event . . . I've been wearing it all day, and just love it!

ENJOY!

Congrats on the subaqua.one of the very few of the remaining swiss made models.I know that the newer versions are listed as swiss, but none are made by the company that made this one.

Beautiful watch. Enjoy it.

I saw the tubes prototype thread you shared. Too bad the tubes never made it to production. That would have put this way ahead of everything else out there. Still a great piece.

I agree . . . the tubes would have made this watch, damn near the "perfect" Invicta timepiece for me! In any event . . . Invicta made the lume incredibly bright on this model!
