So, just a quick one here.

I’ve always liked the Invicta SAN III. Fits nicely and just is an all around winner in my estimation, in just about any iteration in which it comes. No surprise that it’s said to be the brand’s top selling model.

I have this Octopus edition….



And the abalone, of course.



In terms of something unique among Invictas, they always have some dubiously “exclusive” series floating around, but one of them I’ve always liked the looks of is the Blue Label line, since I’m a massive fan of blue on a watch.

I mistakenly tried this behemoth (yikes!) and, while I didn’t care for the watch, the blue finish all over was really pleasing.



So, not rocket science to pull the trigger when I spied a Subaqua NOMA III on a crazy good price drop, in the Blue Label edition. I missed out on this one the last time I saw it come around, but was able to grab one this time.





Standard SAN III specs, nothing out of the ordinary, really, other than the killer blue.





So, a Z60 Ronda providing 30 minute chronograph, day and date, 500m WR, Flame Fusion, 50mm case, machined clasp, unidirectional bezel, built in China, and, did I mention how BLUE it is??











Fit on these is always great.











Lume is nicely laid out, but, as usual, is only great looking for thirty seconds, haha.



Was very glad I came across this one. I’ve got a few more SAN III’s coming, as I close out my affordables buying.



Thanks for reading!

Keep on watching!

I have both those blue labels, gorgeous watches :jump:


The Octane was very early in my Invicta addiction, I was absolutely floored when I held it in my hands :love:

I also had a Blue Label Magnum, was not impressed with the dialwork, it seemed a bit dull so I sent it back.


Fantastic pics, thanks!! :up:

Looks great. Keep us updated on how the finish holds up overtime. I bet it's a real stunner in the sun

Lol, yup that Octane is a beast beyond belief. I just don't have the wrist real estate for it. I missed out on a lot of buys, when I left the brand years back, so returning to it has been a fun time of getting all the models I missed. I had to try the Octane simply because it is so huge, haha. I should really just hang it on my wall, LOL.

Ohhhh, the Magnum, yup, that's another one that has been on the wishlist, simply for girth and novelty. 52mm really is wearable, at least on other models I have, so it's maybe not that huge? I guess the height is a factor, although my Zelos Abyss 3 is 18.5mm and is just fine. The Magnum is, what, 20mm?
