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.

To determine the directions north and south please follow these instructions:
For the Northern Hemisphere

  • Set your watch to local time.
  • Place your watch on a plain, horizontal surface.
  • Turn the watch so that the hour hand points towards the sun.
  • Turn the bezel, so that the ‘S’ is placed midway between the hour hand and twelve o’clock.
  • ‘S‘indicates south (more or less).

For the Southern hemisphere

  • Set your watch to local time.
  • Place your watch on a plain, horizontal surface.
  • Turn the watch so that twelve o’clock points to the sun.
  • Turn the bezel, so that the triangle / luminous dot (‘N‘) is midway between the hour hand and twelve o’clock.
  • The triangle / luminous dot (‘N‘) indicates north (more or less).

For further orientation, the directions of certain degrees (0-360) can be identified on the bezel. The wider angle between the hour hand and twelve o’clock should be used for measurements before 6 am and after 6 pm. The measurement needs to be adjusted to allow for winter/summer time changes. In Germany, for instance, one hour should be deducted during summer (from March to October). Alternatively, the one o‘clock position can be used instead of twelve o’clock.

ARCHIMEDE Pilot 42 B Watch with Red and Blue Dials

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.

ARCHIMEDE Pilot OR 2 – Limited Edition

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.
