That blue is STUNNING......I have a weakness for blue dials.

I was getting ready to pull the trigger on an A1, and now I see this.  I am getting a headache.  UGH

AWESOME watch !!!!

I have my black A3 for 2 weeks and have to say it is perfect! Tried on leather vintage tan strap, on the polished mesh 24/20 and now I have it on the bracelet just for a try :)

I was considering also A4 or A2, because I also like 22mm lugs... but I prefer domed crystal... dont like reflections of the flat glass...


Accuracy like my A1 - uncommon! Very very accurate, much better than my other watch with COSC! It makes 2-3 sec daily, like A1... Bravoo Chris!

Really perfect in every detail... amazing lume, nice and perfect crown, dial and hands are the best on the market regarding how easy is to see and read it.

will see which strap will be the best option for me, it will be probably mesh or leather, because the bracelet is too heavy, like 24/24mm and 5mm thick solid bracelet :)

The original Armida signed "isofrane style" band I dont like too much, but it is so so comfortable, robust, light and soft strap! Actually dont understand why people take expansive isofrane when this OEM strap is the same quality IMO. But I never have an isofrane indeed. And dont like "isofrane boom"... I consider other rubber straps more atractive :)

I have noticed just one minus regarding caseback - sharp ring edge where touch the wrist. I like the caseback 0.5mm thinner with smooth surface without sharp edge. I like structured casebacks and this one A3 is really cool, but the last part/ring stick up uselessly. An antimagnetics characteristic is the reason maybe. The owners know what Im talking about :) I am considering to cut it off by my watchmaker. All it needs is to make this sharp edge curved, just 0.1 - 0.2mm cut off from the edge :)

Heh, I wear it every day and I NEVER adjusted the accuracy. Just with night position. It make +1 sec when it rest on the crown up position. And -1 sec with glass up.
Amazing.... I am every day just within +- 1 sec...

Chris, I like to know if is it top grade eta adjusted in 5 positions, or normal eta witj 2 position adjustements. Anyway it doesnt metter because it is ARMIDA and both my armidas are better then my cosc watches (rolex sub, breitlings...). Maybe just a coincidence :)
