The new 1950-4 | Handwound & Small second

July 11th, 2023 | Posted by IcklerWatches in ARCHIMEDE | General | Ickler Watch Cases - (0 Comments)

We just added a manual winding small seconds piece to our 1950s collection, the new 1950-4. The 40mm ICKLER watch case is fairly thin due to manual winding Sellita 261-1. Green or black dial available, lumed hands, numerals, and indices in the color of old radium and with railroad track around the perimeter.


Our ARCHIMEDE Pilot 42 and OutDoor AntiMag Titan models are characterized by high wearing comfort, lightness, high corrosion resistance, and robustness. All elements of our watch cases, bracelets, and clasps are made of 100% titanium and are therefore also ideal for allergy sufferers. We solely use grade 2, DIN 3.703.


Klassik 200 | Hardened and 20 ATM

February 27th, 2022 | Posted by IcklerWatches in ARCHIMEDE | General | Ickler Watch Cases - (0 Comments)

For everyone who prefers a classic watch, but also a robust timepiece. The new Klassik 200 combines both criteria: the brushed and polished ICKLER case is hardened and has a water resistance of 20 ATM. The brushed and polished surface gives the watch a classic charm. The Klassik 200 is available with a silver, blue, or black dial.

The ARCHIMEDE OutDoor Sahara has received a great facelift. The dial, the luminous hands and indices are now available in a muted ‘Old Radium’ tone.

The ARCHIMEDE OutDoor 39 Protect – of course – still has the scratch-resistant, hardened ICKLER case, which is not too heavy with a size of 75 – 125 gr and a diameter of 39 mm.

Limes Watches handed on to the next generation

December 1st, 2020 | Posted by IcklerWatches in General - (0 Comments)


The family heritage of manufactoring high quality German watches is passing on to the 4th generation.

While Lisa Ickler successfully leads ARCHIMEDE, Raphael Ickler, who gathered experience in developing, designing and making watches with his minimalistic, modern watchbrand DEFAKTO for over 10 years, will now administer LIMES too.

Thomas and Raphael had and will be always deeply connected in the development of new models for both brands. The ICKLER typical signature quality and eye for detail is certain to proceed for many years to come.

Check out the slightly new designed LIMES website with updated pictures.

The ARCHIMEDE Doctor’s Watch has a sand-colored dial with black hands and a clear pulsometer. The fine 42mm ICKLER steel case is polished and brushed. The A/R coated sapphire crystal allows excellent readability. The Klassik Doc’s Watch starts at EUR 721,34 (incl. VAT), EUR 621,84 (without VAT), and can be ordered in our ARCHIMEDE Online Shop.


The Archimede SportTaucher is now available with a solid stainless steel bezel and new hands – matte stainless steel and bronze-colored luminous hands – to match their sporty design. The prices remain the same!
