This my third post on cheap Invicta watches, you have already read about the Grand Diver and Excursion Chrono, now I want to tug on your coat about the Subaqua Noma from Jomashop, as part of my Jomashop Reviews Of Cheap Invicta Watches.
What Is The Invicta Excursion?
This is another beautiful example of what I am calling an oversized man’s watch, and at 50mm the case certainly qualifies for being classed as a large piece. This particular model, the Excursion, is a black on silver design with Tachymeter and sub dials for 60 Second, 60 Minute and 1/10th of a Second.
Just look at this and you can see it’s a real looker with both beauty and brawn in equal measure. The stainless steel 50mm case with unidirectional rotating bezel, on a stainless steel bracelet with black inlay, stands out against anything you care to mention. Where do I start with the dial? Let’s leave that for a moment and look at the enormous bezel, crown and reset buttons.
The unidirectional bezel is large enough to make sure you can never make a mistake and the crown with its protective shoulders are big enough to “man handle” to lock and unlock with ease. The heart of this animal is a quartz movement give outstanding accuracy and reliability, and the water resistance of 50 meters is guaranteed by the screw down crown and scratch resistant flame fusion crystal.
The chronograph subdials read 60 Second, 60 Minute and 1/10th of a Second that can be reset using the two reset buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock.
The black dial is beautifully put together with silver/white Arabic index numeral hour markers and luminescent minute, hours and seconds hands. The Date display at the 4 o’clock position and possibly the only subtlety in this whole design, while the chronograph takes substantial real estate on the dial to give it a somewhat busy feel. This look and feel is added to by the addition of minute markers on the outer rim before the tachymeter giving the feeling of being ready for action.
The chances are, you ain’t gonna need, want or even know what to do with a tachymeter, but it’s always nice to have that little bit extra, right? Basically, a tachymeter is a way to measure speed based on travel time or measure distance based on speed.
Using the tachymeter on your watch you can utilize this formula to measure speed and distance, but as I say, its unlikely you will ever need this, but what the heck, it’s just cool to have that feature.

This is a monster of a watch and the black against silver makes it really stand out as a masculine timepiece that shouts at the top of its voice, “I love action and adventure”. Well, that’s the way I see it anyway, perhaps you have other ideas? The bottom line for me is this timepiece has the everything you could ask for in an active, sporting, outdoorsy watch that can be your everyday wear. With a brand, you can trust and a design that blows you away, the only thing to consider is the price.
