ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher newLOOK

By TLex Introducing the new-look SportTaucher from ARCHIMEDE! New colored bezels, a newly designed second hand, an ICKLER diver case in black PVD, a striking new caseback design with a deep sea divers helmet motif and the reintroduction of the original SportTaucher blue dial!

Besides the popular black bezel version of SportTaucher, Archimede's 300 meter mechanical diver is now being offered with additional blue and red bezels allowing for various new combinations.

In addition to this the original white second hand has been replaced with a wider more substantial indicator in two prominent colors that include: striking orange or bold red; creating a far better contrast thus allowing for better readability of the dial.

As well as this, Archimede are reintroducing the original BLUE dial in celebration of the SportTaucher's comeback!

The diver case has a diameter of 40.5mm and is water-resistant to 30 ATM. A solid screwdown steel caseback with a new striking diver helmet motif hints at the SportTacher's diving intent while a Swiss automatic movement -

the Sellita SW 200-1 provides reliable timekeeping. There is even an option for a display back with a Sapphire crystal.

Manufactured by ICKLER of Germany, the SportTaucher is just 12mm thick, making it not only a serious divers watch, but also a comfortable every day wearer.

It comes in a number of different guises: the 60 with its classic 60 minutes dive-time scale, the GMT with its 12 hours dual timezone, the K for compass with display of the cardinal points and the BRONZE, which can be had in: 60, GMT and K formats.

The ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher is available from 695euro (incl. 19% VAT). It can be ordered directly from ARCHIMEDE's website HERE.
