As the owner of 180+ Invictas, it becomes harder and harder for them to please me (thank God) with new designs. This watch is flat out elegant! The band is thick, yet soft, and light enough to not look black. I have over 50 watch/watch band sites in my favorites. I know Invicta pricing as well as their sales force does and the $139 I paid for this at Amazon was the lowest in the country. If this will be your first Subaqua, know that these are large and somewhat weighty. You need to be a fairly big person to avoid looking like you are wearing a soup can on your wrist.
I have bought all of my husbands INVICTA watches from Amazon except for one I purchased from SHOPHQ. This is a nice looking watch. I got it as a DAILY SPECIAL so the price was fantastic. You can't beat the prices here at AMAZON for INVICTA watches.
