I purchased an Armida A9 GMT for my first watch. I love the Pepsi color scheme, and that's why I bought it. Now I see it as a copy, right down to the Mercedes hands. If someone asks me about it, I tell them upfront that it is an Armida A9, but I still feel like a poseur. It saddens me because it is a great watch.I loved mine initially, but I sold it because I kept getting compliments from people saying “nice Rolex”. Awkward conversations ensued. Then I realized that they ARE kinda Rolex wannabe watches… and that didn’t suite me. I don’t want any of my watches to be wannabe watches.
Maybe I should just change the dial.
