Sophisticated automatic and hand-wound watches from Germany

Archimede – like its sister brand Limes – is a small fine watch brand from Ickler, based in Pforzheim, Germany. Karl Ickler founded the family business back in 1924. After initially working as a production manager in various foreign companies, Ickler ventured into self-employment and, with a great deal of expertise, launched his watch case manufacture. To this day, virtually every part is developed and manufactured in-house: Design, construction, prototyping, parts, production, surface treatment, laser engraving, assembly and quality control.

In 1947, his sons Heinz and Kurt Ickler resume production, which had been dormant during the war, and continue to expand the business. Today, the manufactory for sophisticated watches and watch cases is run by the fourth generation. The company manufactures its products for internationally renowned customers under the strictest quality guidelines.

The function of the old German pilot watches determines the classic, timeless design of the Archimede Pilot models.

Archimede pilot watches inspire the market

Archimde launches its first watches in 2003. It quickly becomes clear that the standard Archimede Pilot model – an elegant and functional pilot’s watch – inspires the market on the basis of an excellent price-performance ratio. With different case sizes, dial variants, automatic and chronograph movements, the Archimede Pilot model is developed into an extensive product family with high-quality automatic and hand-wound watches Made in Germany

Large vertical range of manufacture in Germany

A special feature of Archimede is its great vertical range of manufacture in Germany. Very few watch brands can boast such a high level of in-house value creation – not least a reason why Archimede enjoys a steadily growing fan base, especially among German watch enthusiasts.
