Finally

I've been looking for a good quality diver's watch for quite some time. In my current situation a Rolex Submariner isn't really an option, so I've been looking into other options that would still give me a wellmade automatic diver that looks great and will last. After a long search and weighing of different options this is what Fedex brought me yesterday.




An Armida A2 500. A proper text with a lot of photos will follow this or the next weekend, but first impression is that it's truely what I was looking for. A beautiful piece and seems like pretty fantastic quality for the price.

  1. Nice one! Take a look at Steinhart, I have a diver from them and it is of great quality. It also has a swiss ETA inside which is really great for 350 euros or so.

    1. I was thinking about Steinhart's OVM for a long time, but after hearing so much from my friends on how it's just a Rolex Milsub replica I decided to go for something at least a bit different but made in the spirit of the Milsub. I have to say, they totally poisoned the idea of a pure hommage watch for me. :)

      Anyway, after wearing this for two days I must say I'm happy I picked the Armida.

    The Seiko SKX007 is a nice piece! Premium japanese automatic watch.
