I'm a Punk Ass - UPDATED

Post by jaw » August 24th 2010, 4:56pm

Ok I confess - I'm a Punk Ass Punk...

Bought a SAN IV today on eWatches (WOW) DOD $289
Always wanted to see one first hand.
Wouldn't mind a 7750 either after the price comes waaay down - we'll see.

Very into architectural design aspects of watches
- Invicta has always excelled here.
- Same reason I keep my SAS, etc.
Sometimes buy purely for design reference purposes.
Also like the 5050C (E) movement - and a sucker for yellow/black color combos.

There, I said it - Roll the dice.

Recognizing your problem is the first step Jeffrey. Seriously, you know the deal and if you want the watch I hope you get a good one.

You shoulda waited til Friday.
Mine will be up on the bay on Friday, with WL Discount too.
Seriously, you need to be a big man to wear that.
I'm not, but was also infatuated with that design, and had to see for myself as well.

WTF, if you like it, then who cares!

Cheezemeister,
you are correct.

Good Picture, Sir!

Seriously, I've read Jaw from many forums for years, and he's a gentle soul!

Bro, if you like it i say go for it! I've had some pretty nice invictas and they ran just fine. Just seems their stories got more crazy by the day and besides you've got alot of nice solid hardware so a couple invictas arent going to hurt that collection! Hell ive been on a 80-130 dollar G-shock kick as of late!!

Arrived today.

First checked for known issues:
Chrono function/calibration - Check
Ease of Crown Pull - Check
Loose Bracelet Pins - Check (but rather loose - easy to see why some fall out)
Hands/Markers/Logo Intact - Check (after a few firm bumps)

Verdict: It's a Cool Design - like the Watch (for ~$280, no more)

Again - Purely an Architectural Specimen
Good evolution of the SANIII - Disagree with these design choices
- 4th Bezel Marker Addition
- No texture on center links

Really like
- New Case Design
- More sophisticated lines overall
- Smoothed corners everywhere
- Case abbreviated just before lugs but continued by implied lugs in 1st bracelet link - love that
- Lugs appear to swivel but don't, would be awesome if they did.
- Pleasing pusher shape/contours w/protruding button when locked down.
- Plays smaller that SANIII yet exactly 50mm w/o crown.
- Stands taller, higher profile than SANIII
- Dial perf pattern not off putting - good dial depth
- Wife likes it (Told me to send the SilverJet2 back)

Dislike:
- Yellow subdial acrylic, would have preferred neutral color - gray
- Lume best on hands - all else is good ole sub par Tritnite
- Typical bezel click play persists - accidentally off in photo, does align better - but not perfect.
- 120 Bezel Clicks Hollow/Clumsy sounding
- Same ole matte finish flip lock safety, makes thin metal look cheap.
