German watch brand ARCHIMEDE introduces new versions of its popular Flieger watches, the Pilot 42 R and the Pilot 42 B with red and blue dials. In 2007 ARCHIMEDE started with the Pilot 42 W (white dial) using for the first time a non-black Flieger dial in the ARCHIMEDE Pilot collection. In 2012, the brand also manufactured a red dial version (with date).
This year the brand is launching a version without date. The new red dial only shows the ARCHIMEDE logo and has no date and no other wording. There is also a change in the design. The white numerals and indexes have got a fine black rim around, which makes it look more distinctive.
Together with this red Pilot version the brand also offers another colour version: The Pilot 42 B with a blue dial. The darker blue and the sunbrush finish of the Flieger dial leads the Pilot 42 to a more modern, elegant time piece. The Pilot 42 White is still available. With the date window and ‘AUTOMATIC’ printed, the dial is slightly different from the blue and red version.
The prices for the Pilot R/B/W are:
Steel case / leather strap: Eur 435
