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.
