We have changed the design of the ICKLER and AUTRAN & VIALA website:





The Pharo Cartouche stands for beauty and elegance. A watch for people who appreciate fine art and craftsmanship as well as precision. It was one of the first watches of the LIMES collection. Since the end of the 1990s until 2007 the Cartouche was an important time piece of LIMES and had found many friends over the years. Now the Cartouche is back with a new design:

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.

Due to many customer requests we are offering now the AUTRAN & VIALA Flieger with the new Pilot crown. On the photo below you see on the left the new version in comparison to the old one (to the right).

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.
