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.
The 3 piece Ickler case with brushed stainless steel features new Pilot’s crown with logo, case-back with 5 single screws, and flat sapphire crystal glass with A/R coating on both sides. The brand is also offering an option for a curved sapphire crystal with A/R coating on both sides.
The blued steel hands, manufactured by Ickler, are coated with Superluminova C3. The leather straps are available in black, light brown, dark brown and now, in middle brown.
The limited edition ARCHIMEDE Pilot OR 2 is available direct from ARCHIMEDE for – International customers for Euro 740 (leather strap) and Euro 860 (steel bracelet), plus shipping costs and for US customers for US$ 1080 (leather strap) and US$ 1250 (steel bracelet), including shipping and US duties.
