    Which one to get? New Armida A2 or Obris Morgan Explorer?

    Specs are similar enough. Can only get one- which do you think that I should get? Black only. Daily wearer for everything from swim suit to business suit.

    From a purely aesthetic perspective considering an office environment is in play in the scenario, I would say the A2. I think it has a cleaner face and bezel plus the addition of the date window which I like while working.

    I'd go with the Obris, only because it's less of an homage than the A2, more it's own design, but both are very nice.

    I like the Orbis...but only if it had a date, so I would pick the Armida. Great company too..

    For me the Armida is just another in a multitude of Sub clones, whilst the OM Explorer is a more individual and contemporary design (cue posts of similar looking watches); so it depends what you're looking for, vintage or modern.

    I'd go with the OM, but I'm biased as I've just ordered the Explorer in blue, and I've already got some Sub style watches.
