Greetings from Albuquerque!
Another "Rolex" submariner,when the funds become available.Had a few in the years past,but in today`s market the cost is too high for me....
Am awaiting with anticipation a Armida A2 diver, only transit problem it was sent express and the USPS did not scan it (go figure) so it's comming priority. It had the computer generted white express label rather than the counter issued multi-copy red/white/blue, so Monday 4-23 (I hope)
BACK TO THE SUBJECT:
So far reading the specs on the A2 and after having so many dive watches over the past 13 years...
I like the drilled lugs (you can use shoulderless springbars) the rubber stem gasket (like the Rolex trip-lok) the size maybe bit big... more after Monday.
My wrist is 7.25in so I'm only concerned with the LTL measurment which I believe is 50mm varies on personal reviewsand fs posts and Armida website info.
But looks good the Citizen (Miyota) movement does not bother me being less expensive than the ETA and similar to preformance/quality to the Seiko 7s26
I am a PADI/NAUI cert rec diver and normally have not used a watch in timing diving since about early 00.Just nice to have a good looking dive watch thats funcitional and not god-awuful big like so many. Nothing worse (except a fat guy in a speedo) that seeing a huge dive watch on a skinny wrist.....
Thanks, will do, my seller is at the PO this min in Morton Grove, IL trying to sort the express scan mess up. So I suspect Monday arrival.I did do a comparision with the Seiko 007 (wearing now) and the Steinhart vintage military Here is what I got from several posts on the forum:
Armida A 2
42mm case, 43mm at the bezel, 13mm thick, 51mm lug to lug, Weight 175g with bracelet
Steinhart Military/Seiko 007 as a comparison:
