The three versions of the ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher with bronze case.

Over the years, Archimede’s SportTaucher become a much appreciated piece among diver watch collectors and the feedback they were sending again and again, people wanted a bronze version. Finally, Ickler, the Pforzheim based watchmaking workshop behind Archimede, has given in to the demand, by launching the SportTaucher with bronze case. It is the same bronze alloy CuSn8 (consisting of 92% copper and 8% tin), they use for the Archimede Pilot 39 Bronze that we presented earlier.

The surface is brushed without any further treatment (‘natural’) and will develop the characteristic bronze vintage patina over time. Both the crown and the buckle are also made of Bronze.

There are three versions of the SportTaucher Bronze:

  • ’60’ : classic divers watch with 60 minutes scale
  • ‘K’ : compass watch with 360° scale for determining the cardinal directions
  • ‘GMT’: world time watch with 12 hours for 2. time zone

The diver case has a diameter of 40,5 mm and is water resistant to 30 ATM. The solid screw down steel case back protects the reliable Swiss automatic movement Sellita SW 200. As an option a display back with sapphire crystal is available. The antireflective coated sapphire crystal on top guarantees perfect readability of the luminous dials – day and night.

The price for the ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher BRONZE is EUR 823.53 (about CAD $1,200). The price for the SportTaucher with Nato strap is EUR 798.32 (CAD $1,160). More versions with Nato straps will follow soon.
