Hey guys,

see the new Armida A2-500M on the Armida website and on Facebook.

Looks really nice. A few changes on the new A2.


Nice sunburst dial. ThumbsUp02.gif

This is a hell of a watch for the money, 9015 movement, sunburst dial and super lumes plus you get bracelet and rubber strap.

I like the first generation A2 better.

Especially the bracelet and the bezel insert.


I missed it to buy one from the first generation. oh my.gif

I've had mine since last Wednesday. #1001. Pretty cool serial number if you ask me. To me it looks a bit dressier than a previous model. Maybe it's smaller hands? Less busy bezel?
I am quite happy with the new watch. Well priced for the specs I think. Really like the blue lume. Still not sure about the new bracelet though. It seems to be a bit lighter (which I like) and centre links are not raised as in previous one but I am not sure if I like the new endlinks. It is quite comfortable though.
Anyway it's a really nice little watch and really well priced in my opinion. Here are some pics:

If you ask Chris from Armida, I have been looking for this watch for over a year. I'm glad to finally have the color I wanted. I'm sure he'll sell out!

I know! I thought I might explode waiting for the second run to get the blue one! Thumbsup3.gif


also V1 VS V2 the new bracelet fits small wrists much better than the old one!

Just like exc-hulk said: Great to see a comparison! cool.gif

I believe the second gen would look better on my tiny wrist. Specially the PVD coated version with the blue dial. dog smile.gif

I was going to swap the bracelets, but after wearing the new one a few days I'm going to leave it alone.

I may put the original on leather...

Turns out the bracelets are different and cannot be swapped...

The rubber strap that comes with the new A2 is the new "Cudafrane"

If you look a bit closer, you´ll see that the markings on the bezels differs. The second hand is different and there is a itty bitty difference in size also. They are also powered by two different movements. ThumbsUp02.gif

It also looks like the hour hand is significantly shorter!
