I had never seen one of these in person until today and when I did - WOW. What a monster of a watch - but not only large, but really classy.

The 55mm Invicta Men's Specialty Collection The Admiral COSC Automatic Stainless Steel Watch #3465 is a BEAUTIFUL timepiece. The bracelet is fantastic looking also.

If you have one of these please post your pictures and wrist shots in this thread.

An outer ring of indexes allows easy seconds timing, and the date displays discreetly at three o'clock. The silver-tipped hands are luminous for easy reading day or night, and the slender silver seconds hand continues the look of the silver-tone stainless steel bezel. The stainless steel case measures 55 millimeters across for a powerful presence, and the 24-millimeter stainless steel band has a secure fold-over clasp with safety latch. This well-made watch is powered by Swiss-automatic movement and is water resistant up to 330 feet. It is backed by the manufacturer's comprehensive 1-year warranty.

It was really really nice in person and a great looking watch. 2 people commented on it while we were sitting there without even knowing it was a COSC watch with a really cool open case back.

I owned one of these and traded it a little while back!

The movement was extremely accurate (the most accurate automatic I owned), and it was good looking as well!

I will say that this watch wore HUGE!

The case is 50mm, but the dial is 45 of those 50mm! :BE

Ultimately with my shrinking wrist, I reluctantly traded it!

eric4- I too was surprised to see it has a mineral crystal- I'd definately be paranoid wearing that one, considering how often I bang my watch into things (by accident, of course).
BUT, it is still a very sweet piece; even the bracelet is a beauty! Nice watch, Arnie! Thanks for posting this, TV!

I don't know the weight on the watch in grams, but it was heavier than my Grand Divers and Ocean Ghosts.

My understanding on the crystal choice was due to it's size. A sapphire crystal that large might shatter more easily than a mineral one would.

The movement IS tiny inside of the case (but accurate as can be)! :)

I was always after the titanium version but never seemed to have the funds at the right time but when I saw one for sale locally here for very little money in steel I snapped it up and I'm glad I did, it really is one of Invicta's nicest watches.

Mine is in my weekly work rotation so I make no apologies for it's condition it's very comfy for such a big piece, far more so than an RD or such like IMO.

My only gripe is it's just waaay to shiny, so I'm going to have it beadblasted after christmas so it looks more like it's Ti cousin.


Seriously comfy big watch, not too heavy and for me doesn't wear as big as an RD


This is Just how big this beast is! that is a full size SAIII

A couple of dial close ups for you..


It really is a nicely detailed piece of kit


Running well within COSC specs, for me an absolute keeper!

Ok, so now the question is........... who DOES have the titanium version with blue dial. I was telling James today that I had a shot to pick that one up on Shop's auction some years ago and bailed out at $450. Sorry I did cause that was an awesome piece IMO!!

I still "toy" with the idea of getting the titanium version. I love that blue dial and the weight difference would be noticeable :)

I've watched a few over the months on eBay, and just never bought one. :)
