While I can’t put my finger on why, exactly, I like bronze cases, I just know I do. Pair that material up with an Ickler design (as we have here from Archimede), and you have my attention. It provides for an interesting twist on the well-known Flieger design, and makes a compelling bargain to boot.

While there are a lot of “pilot” watches out there, this one particular design is something that everyone can agree on as being a “pilot” watch. It is one of the ‘original’ looks, and has fared very well over the years. Many (I mean many) companies have attempted to provide their own interpretation to the […]
