    Archimede 1950s watch

    What do you guys think of this new model from Archimede ?

    Looks like (dial at least) my two Dugena Festa's a little bit which are based from the same era I believe

    Looks nice enough, reminds me of a Junghans.

    I like how the big dome is entirely done by the crystal

    I was skeptical at first, but then I really liked the one with the white dial and the mesh and brown bracelets. It's a shame about the date.

    I like the black dial and silver hands - good combo , but the blue hands on the white don't do it for me at all, they look all wrong - the wrong blue and too blue too !

    I like them in profile, but not straight on.

    Like it better with a leather strap but it sure has blue hands! Also would prefer no date but I like most dress watches as simple as possible.

    Nice to see someone taking advantage of the 9015's slim profile

    Interestingly the Dugena's I mention also use the same movement
