Introduced in 2008, first limited edition of the ARCHIMEDE Pilot OR was sold quickly. Now the German watch brand ARCHIMEDE offers a second edition, limited to just 100 pieces, the Pilot OR 2 – Limited edition. This traditional Fliegeruhr uses the same historic hand-wound movement as the first edition: the JH687 manufactured in 1960 by Junghans in Schramberg, Germany.
ARCHIMEDE has completely restored these beautiful movements dismantling them piece by piece; then cleaning, lubricating them, and renewing parts where necessary as they were reassembled and finally regulating them. However as a historic timepiece, you must not expect the accuracy achieved by today’s modern movements.
