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!
From now on all our Pilot watches are water-resistant to 10 ATM and have a sapphire case back. You will find all information on our ARCHIMEDE website.
Our popular ARCHIMEDE OutDoor AntiMag 41 is now also available with a titanium case and a titanium bracelet.
For many years Titanium cases are an important part of ARCHIMEDE collection. Made of pure titanium (Grade 2, DIN 3.703) these watches offer:
-> Lightweight, only 60% of the weight of steel, often used in aerospace engineering
-> Resistance to corrosion
-> Hypoallergenic properties, an alternative for people, who react to the residual nickel in eg. steel, metal of choice for medical implants
-> Comfortable to wear, quickly absorbs body heat

The extravagant Defakto Transit was created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Defakto Watch Manufactory. The watch has just won the internationally renowned German Design Award 2020 in the category Winner product design luxury goods. The watch is the most complex manufacture created by Defakto yet. It offers unique modern aesthetics combined with high quality components such as a new in-house made 3-piece watchcase with brushed surface, a konvex sapphire crystal and a swiss made automatic movement. In the elaborate design process, great importance was placed on night readability.
