The Invicta Men’s S1 Blue Dial Chronograph Black Polyurethane 0897 is the perfect watch for a man that’s looking for a timepiece with a lot of extra features and intricate design, without sacrificing style and price.

This watch is made from a variety of different materials, including the black rubber strap with 18K gold-plated, textured accents and a brushed and polished 18K gold ion-plated stainless steel case.  Aside from having a large mixture of materials and textures, this timepiece also uses a combination of interesting colors that make it look very special.  The bold, blue dial with white accents combines beautifully with the gold bordered sub-dials and red hands.  The bracelet comes with a buckle clasp and flame-fusion crystal covering over the dial.  This watch is water resistant up to 100 meters, which makes it suitable to wear in the rain, washing your hands, even swimming.

Pros

  • 18K Gold Plated
  • Comfortable Rubber Strap
  • Chronograph
  • Blue Dial
  • Water Resistant
  • Flame Fusion Crystal
  • Calendar
  • Affordable
  • Tachymeter
This watch has many fantastic extras.  Instead of a simple, clean watch face this timepiece displays the date and time, and chronograph functions with 60 second, 30 minute and 1/10 of a second.  It’s water resistance and comfortable black rubber strap make it ideal for every day wear and use.  One last notable thing about this timepiece is its price.  While certainly not cheap, this watch retails for $1,295, which is much less expensive than other designer labels, especially if you consider all the extra features you get with this timepiece.
Cons
  • Difficult to Read
  • Busy, Complicated Design
  • Medium Quality Materials
My main issue with this watch is how hard it is to read. This is definitely not something I would buy if I actually needed to see what time it was without staring at my watch for ten minutes.  The readability of this watch has a lot to do with the way it’s designed, so if you like the intricate, complicated, some might even say busy, design then you need to be willing to sacrifice some of the timepieces practicality.  One of my pros for the Invicta Men’s S1 Blue Dial Chronograph Black Polyurethane 0897 Watch was the price, and the reason Invicta can keep the price so low is that they aren’t used to top tier materials, though the ones they are using are by no means cheap.
If you know you’re looking for a watch that’s more of a show piece than a practical means of telling the time, I would recommend the Invicta Men’s S1 Blue Dial Chronograph Black Polyurethane 0897 Watch.
