Archimede DeckWatch

Here’s a recent addition, all the way from Germany – the Archimede DeckWatch.

Ickler, the company behind the Archimede brand, is one of my favourites because of it’s top-down manufacturing – from heat bluing the hands to manufacturing the case – everything is done in-house.

The Archimede Deckwatch is a modern day reproduction of old Marine watches from the 1910s onwards. I may have mentioned before my preference for mechanical wrist watches with simple dials and old-school detailing:

It’s kinda like buying jeans from Momotaro. From components to assembly, all taken care of…and you can buy direct too.

Great value for money, comparatively speaking of course, and quality all round.

The question is – what type of strap should I install on this one?
