News from Limes, Archimede, Autran & Viala and Defakto

We are glad to announce a new version of the ARCHIMEDE diver, the SportTaucher K.



The luminous numerals and indexes as well as the blue hands with white luminous surface assure fantastic visibility – also at night!

For more information please go to the ARCHIMEDE Website.



The new bezel design of ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher divers watch is now available!




For the following ARCHIMEDE models we are now offering beautiful and stable Milanaise mesh bracelets with diver buckles:

The bracelet has a massive deployment buckle with security clasp. The bracelet can be found in the respective watch family on the  ARCHIMEDE Website under accessories.

The price is EUR 160.

Milanaise Bracelet

The OutDoor is now available with a black PVD steel case and steel bracelet.




For several years we offered the Pilot 39 for lefthanders which we stopped producing in 2012. But some customers still asked for such versions – so we are now offering the following Pilot models for lefthanders again:

• Pilot 45 Automatik
• Pilot 42 Bronze Automatik
• Pilot 42 H Automatik
• Pilot 42 B Automatik
• Pilot 39 H Automatik
 Pilot 36 Automatik

The watches are not in stock but will be manufactured when placing an order. Delivery will be made 2-3 weeks after receipt of order and payment.

The Lefties are individually manufactured watches, so there are additional costs of 90 EUR.
To order a left-hand version please first order the corresponding standard version of the watch and then add the upgrade “Lefthander” which can be found on the same page under “ACCESSORIES”.

The new Pilot 42 B with the design of the old Beobachtungswatches is online now!
For more information and ordering please go to the ARCHIMEDE website.

Here is the first photo of the coming ARCHIMEDE B Watches, the Pilot 42 B, in stainless steel and Bronze.

New ARCHIMEDE Pilot B Watches

The prices are Eur 495 (steel) and Eur 645 (Bronze). They will be available from mid of October.

Right now we are testing a black PVD version of the OutDoor. So far the stability and quality of the PVD layer is good. Yet it is clear that – as every surface and coating – it will get marks and scratches over time.

Test of OutDoor black PVD

The PVD version will be ready in October. Of course we will also offer the full luminous version with the black case.

OutDoor with full luminous dial

The OutDoor with black dial has become a highly valued time piece. It is constructed and designed for active people who need a rugged watch which is still comfortable to wear.  ARCHIMEDE now launches the OutDoor with a white, full luminous dial and black hands.
