Wow, what a difference photos can make. Oscar's pics makes it look like any other watch. However Joe's pics looks like a massive tool watch. I think the bracelet is the difference. Either way the A5 is gonna be a big hit.

For those who may be interested... I did a comparison between the A5 and the Tatico.

Case - Loooks the same. A5 Lug screws are bolt type. Tatico uses standard screw head screws. The crown is hard to tell, but they look different to me. The crown guards are even different. On closer inspection the Tatico's guard looks rounded off to make the crown look flush.

Crystal - A5 crystal looks to be a slightly bigger dome that the Tatico.

Bezel - A5 has 15-30-45 markers. Tatico has 10-20-30-40-50 markers

Dial - Completely different. A5 min indicies are round. Tatico is block type.

Hands - A5 hour and min hands are rounded, and second hand has a round lume. Tatico hour and min hands are typical plongeur hands, more square, and second hand has small square lume with red tip.

My opinion is these are two different versions. There is enough difference for them to have their own version and look. For me, if I had 5 or 6k to spend on a Kobold, I would much rather pick up the A5 and use the difference to pick up the wife a nice timepiece, and still have money left over for a nice weekend getaway.

Thanks guys!!! I don't understand the controversy started over the dial opening. it is plenty large... the proportions between the dial and the bezel couldn't be better...I have a 71/4 inch wrist, and with two bracelet links out it fits perfect on the deployant clasp. the brushed finishing is as good as it gets imho..
this is a very comfortable watch to wear..

Well this I-phone photo will have to do for a week or so as I leave for the Bahamas first thing in the morning. I will report back on the performance of the A5 in the ocean, nothing real deep 20 feet at most but this baby will see all the action! Chris and the Armida team did a great job on this one. Congrats to all the new owners, you made a great choice!

Very cool Oscar, Joe, and Trent!

Looks great on all combos including the sinn rubber, stock bracelet, and cool orange isofrane!. (Have a great time in the Bahamas Trent and put that A5 through the paces!!!)

I think the A5 is an excellent choice. Looks like a tank and the bracelet is very appropriate.

Congrats to Oscar and Joe. Enjoy those watches in good health for a long time.

I've been thinking about this watch a lot. I'm at one of those crossroads where I cannot figure out where to throw my money. I like this A5. I was also considering the SAS, as well as a Prometheus Manta Ray. The Dievas Vortex was on my list too.
