The Fixoflex watchband (expandable) was invented in 1952 by ROWI / Pforzheim, which was a completely new type of watchband at that time. We asked ROWI (founded in 1885) for some samples of a standard bracelet and adjusted the attachment so that it fits the OutDoor case.
The result is an interesting new combination, which is very comfortable to wear. The expandable band matches very well the design of the robust timepiece. It has no buckle and can be shortened / lengthened in steps of 4mm.
Here are some photos of a bike-trip with the OutDoor and Fixoflex band through the Black Forest.
Will you be reproducing these and making them available for the outdoor?
Thank you for your message. We do not offer the Fixoflex bracelet on our website but the ARCHIMEDE Outdoor will be available with it. The price will be the same than the Outdoor with leather strap.
Have a nice day.
Best regards, Lisa Ickler
May I know if it is still available? I don’t see it on the website.
Thank you for your comment.
The Fixoflex bracelet is still available. We do not offer it on our ACHIMEDE website as it has no hardened surface.
The price will be the same than the Outdoor with leather strap.
If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Best regards, Lisa
Have you a link for this fixoflex strap available with the Archimede outdoor ?
Ilf you prefer you can send me a mail to nikaar at hotmail*fr
Thank you for your meassage.
We wanted to offer the Fixoflex strap. Unfortunatelly it was not possible to harden the strap like we did it on our cases.
We hope you understand that.
Ok I understand.
So, what is the size of the lugs and which size of strap have to I buy?
Sorry there was a mistake from my side: you do can buy the Fixoflex strap (although we do not have it online). (The lug to lug width here is 18mm. The bracelet width itself 20mm)
If you want to have the OutDoor with the Fixoflex bracelet please keep in mind, that it is not hardened (like the case).
If you are still interested in buying the ARCHIMEDE OutDoor with Fixoflex bracelet please order it online and make a note in the ‘comment area’ (which bracelet you want to have) when ordering the watch.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Ok, thanks 😉
What is the smallest size wrist this strap is suitable for without needing adjustment?
Dear Gordon, you can adjust the FixoFlex to any size – there is no minimun 🙂
