ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher | Unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-down crown, Swiss movement SW 200-1
|This professional, tough, 30 ATM rated ARCHIMEDE divers watch has won many friends all over the world. The brushed stainless-steel 41.5 mm ICKLER divers case is only 12 mm thick, making this not only a serious diving watch but also comfortable everyday wear.
The profiled crown with the ARCHIMEDE logo underlines the SportTaucher’s distinctive appearance. The clean dial ensures easy readability.
The screw-down crown is at four o’clock and is protected by a crown guard. The ARCHIMEDE SportTaucher uses the robust Swiss automatic movement SW 200-1.
Straps are crafted from rubberized leather, Nato or rubber. A solid stainless steel bracelet with safety clasp and fold-out extension, to enable wearing it over a wetsuit, is also available.
1.) Screws to fix movement 2.) O-Ring gasket to absorb shocks 3.) Locking of movement holder 4.) Two case backs gaskets for high water resistance
|A solid stainless steel movement holding positions the movement securely inside the case.|
|The thick sapphire crystal of the SportTaucher guarantees high water resistance.|
|The massive screw-down crown is optimally secured against impact by the 4 o’clock position and the crown protection.|
|The unidirectional bezel with luminous dot at 12 o’clock is offered in 3 different versions: ’60’ with 60 minutes as classic divers watch, ‘GMT’ with 12 hours for 2. time zone, ‘K’ for compass with display of the cardinal directions|

Is there any shock-resistance system (o-ring) in other ARCHIMEDE models such as the Outdoor 39 and Pilot?
Sure 🙂 O-Ring gasket to absorb shocks 🙂 Best regards
Fantastic blog post. I would love to see the “standard” pilots chronograph (no tri compact) in the next review
Keep up the good work 🙂
Thank you! We will see 🙂 Have a nice day and best regards!
We will see 🙂
Would like to see a dissected OutDoor Protect. After all, that is the signature Archimede!
Yes, there are good chances to see that 🙂
