Default New Milus Archimedes

Guys, have you checked out Milus Watch's Archimedes already?

The new watch is the modern version of the 1970s Milus Super
Compressor, and has the EPSA, or Ervin Piquerez S.A. style case.
Which was by them for brands like Blancpain, IWC, JLC, Longines,
and Milus too.

This watch has a brushed, and polished 41mm stainless steel case,
AR coated curved sapphire crystal, 300m WR, neat black, or blue dials
with SLN coated "Broad Arrow" hands, lollipop seconds, and markers.
Not to mention inner rotating bezel, dueling crowns, helium valve,
decorated ETA 2892 automatic movement, and leather, or textile straps.


A few pictures everyone...














The original 1970's Milus Archimedes...





OceanicTime, and Milus with a lot more...

I really dig the original (pictured last). I even like the distressed dial and worn-in band, LOL.

A truly beautiful piece with outstanding features and a wonderful movement. To bad about that price. As beautiful as the watch is, I just don't see dropping almost two grand on it.

It's funny right Auto?! The original is just hard to beat. Between the
less busy dial, cool writing, and strap like you said. It really has it all !
Then it definitely was, and still is more affordable than the new model
is too right Forza?! It's fun to see these new watches, but not so
much fun seeing the prices.

Thanks so much for chiming in guys !!

Great lookin watch, inasmuch as I've renounced mechanical watches.
Both hand crankers and autos. I gifted every last mechanical I owned
to member you know. I decided not to divulge his name.

That is one lucky member Art !

What's so nice about these above is how close they
are to the originals, or original super compressor
style really. ..Guess the actual vintage models are
quite a bit less though which is great.

Really appreciate you chiming in about these.

Thank you very much sir !
