It’s been awhile since we took a look at a watch from Archimede, but another one caught my eye, and here we are. The model we’re looking at today is the Outdoor model. What initially caught my eye was the clean styling of the watch. It almost has a modernized vintage feel, if you ask me.
Archimede definitely is targeting this watch for those intending to be active outside – but if you ask me, the size and styling will make it a very versatile piece. It measures in at 38.5mm wide and only 10.5mm thick; add to that a weight of 70g (with the leather strap) or 120g (with bracelet), and this is a watch that won’t weight you down.
So, what are the outdoor-specific features? The bracelet features an integrated extension for fitting over a sleeve; the leather strap has an optional extension that can be added as well. It’s also water resistant to 200m (with a screw-down crown) and features what looks to be good lume.
The piece itself features a Sellita SW200 automatic movement (Swiss made), a solid screw down case back on the stainless steel case, and a sapphire crystal up front.
So, how much with this piece of kit set you back? If you opt for the leather strap, it will be $675; the stainless bracelet ups the ticket price to $745. Oh, and if you want the extension for the leather strap, it will add another $30.
Should this watch enter your collection, I feel it will serve you well in a variety of situations, not just the outdoors.
