By TLex Because of the great success of the ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher, ARCHIMEDE have decided to introduce a new version of the popular dive watch with a solid stainless steel bezel, the new SportTaucher M, which was previewed on OceanicTime here and here. The watch has a distinctive German look, which comes from its manufacture by the famous German case manufacturer, ICKLER, which has been making watch cases since 1924. The SportTaucher M has been designed to be a tough and sporty dive watch. Each unit has been individually tested to 300m or 1000feet and still has all the features of the original 'A' model.
The case is brushed stainless-steel measuring a modest 41.5mm with a thickness of just 12mm, which means the watch is not just a serious diver, but also a comfortable every day wearer. Other features of SportTaucher M include a screwdown crown at four o'clock signed with the ARCHIMEDE 'A' logo, a tough sapphire crystal, and the ubiquitous work horse, the Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement.
Straps for the new SportTaucher M are are available in either genuine sharkskin or rubber. Also available for the watch is an all stainless steel bracelet with steel safety clasp and divers folding extension, to enable wearing the watch over a wetsuit.
The SportTaucher M is available directly from ARCHIMEDE for US customers priced at 895USD with leather strap or for 1065USD with steel bracelet (including shipping and US duties). For International customers the watch is priced at 595euro with leather strap or for 715euro with steel bracelet, plus shipping costs.
