Archimede is a watch brand owned by Ickler GmBH, one of the oldest family owned watch companies of Germany. Karl Ickler founded the Ickler family business in 1924. He had previously worked as head of the manufacturing department for foreign companies.
With this treasure of experience, he founded his own watch case manufacture. In 1947, his two sons rebuilt production, which had lay fallow during the war. Today the company is managed by the third-generation Thomas Ickler. Ickler manufactures premiere quality watches and watch cases, made to the highest quality standards, for a demanding international clientele – all made in Germany.
The cases are crafted in-house, from solid blocks of stainless steel, pure titanium or 18 carat gold. The highly experienced employees use the latest high tech CNC machinery, which is guaranteeing ultimate precision. When it comes to polishing the surfaces, assembling parts and complete watches, and thorough quality control,Ickler relies on the careful human touch.
In 2003, the first Archimede models came on to the market. Soon it became clear that the basic model ‘Archimede Pilot’ with it’s excellent price relation would be very successful.
With different case sizes, versions of dials, automatic and chronograph movements, the ‘Pilots’ have found many customers all around the world. Also the other families of ARCHIMEDE like SportTaucher, Arcadia and Outdoor are very popular.
