The way we view and are attracted to watches has changed massively over many years, where once we would be enticed by the simplistic style and novice features we are now enthralled by bold designs with extra technological features added on for good measure.
The Invicta men’s 0140 Sea Spider collection watch definitely fits in the category of bold; with its vibrant colours and unique design catching your eye and proves to be an excellent talking point. The gold plated piece is a mixture of sporty and designer and would work well with a variety of outfits, whilst maintaining its masculine and bold image.
0140 Sea Spider Design
Invicta are well known for their masculine timepieces, and they haven’t forgot about that within the 0140 Sea Spider. The gold plated 50mm flame fusion case features as the vocal point, proving that looks actually do matter. The stainless steel case provides rigidity and sturdiness – exactly what is needed for a watch of this standing. An unusual design, featuring the minute markers out-with the dial itself. I like this design and feel that it allows for easier reading away from the busyness of the actual dial.
If its style you’re looking for then the 0140 has you covered too. The black and gold coloured face gives a sense of trendiness and it has two sub-dials as well as a small date box to provide an easier overall user experience. I am always a fan of the added detail in the sub-dials and date box, especially in timepieces with a reasonable price range as this one.
Build & Mechanics
Powering this 0140 Sea Spider is Swiss Quartz movement; as always providing smooth, precise and accurate information with the time being narrowed down to a few seconds each year. Another hidden gem within this watch is the water resistance feature, and although this is a common feature nowadays, it is always a welcomed addition to any wearer. Invicta have covered the basics here with a water resistance of up to 100m or 330ft which is suitable for swimming if you so desire.
Polyurethane is not usually a material used in watch-making, and is certainly a first for me. Putting it in simpler terms, polyurethane is a plastic type material and is durable and reliable. This material is used in the strap of the 0140, and it blends in well with the piece as a whole. The strap is fitted with an easy to use fold-over-clasp, providing added safety when taking the watch on and off.
Overall, the 0140 Sea Spider is a powerful and effective time piece, offering the best of both worlds in terms of affordability and design quality. Covered in gold plated stainless steel, it’s easy to see why this is a popular choice. With integrated sub-dials and a date window it markets itself well to those who are looking for a complex looking but relatively easy to read design.
The uniquely designed strap shows that Invicta are looking to move forward with their designs and move away from the traditional materials used for straps. The strap itself is comfortable and easy to take on and off – ideal if you are a regular watch wearer.
You can grab yourself this Invicta 0140 Sea Spider at a very attainable price point. This is a great value buy considering the features you receive, including a standard water resistance depth of up to 330ft. If you are looking for a watch that offers style and high quality features alongside a bold design that maintains its masculinity then this could be the perfect starter watch for you. I would definitely recommended this watch if you feel it suits your needs!
