About Archimede

First launched in 2003, the Archimede is a favorite among watch lovers. Known for its expert workmanship, down-to-earth designs that put usability first, and prices that belie the care and precision with which they are manufactured, its quality and exceptional value often define Archimede.

Based in Pforzheim, Germany, Archimede Watches is owned and manufactured by the Ickler family. They are well-known for their size and dial variation pilot watches, but they also produce a wide range of versatile modern sports watches, such as their unique outdoor collection.

Why Manual Winding for Archimede Watches?

The most common reason for Archimede watches to be hand wound is so that you can set the time accurately with it, this saves you from having to reset the watch as often, it also means that the watch will always be accurate and reliable.
Winding a watch is a complex endeavor, but for many watch lovers, it is one of the joys of interacting with a watch.

Archimede Watch Manual Winding Steps 

Manual winding: hold the watch with one hand, and unscrew the crown firmly with the other hand until the feeling returns to zero, then wind until you feel resistance (be sure to slow down just enough until it is full if you have been using it since the beginning). (With the same force and speed, it is easy to damage the winding mechanism when it is suddenly filled.) It is recommended to turn the crown at least 30 times to keep the moving parts well-lubricated.

For manual winding, the process is simple, and you will find that winding your Archimede gives you a few minutes of peace every day!

In most cases, most Archimede watch automatic movements can be wound properly. In general, Archimedes' self-winding movements need to rotate 650–800 revolutions per day, and most of them can be wound clockwise.

If you cannot find your watch model (or movement) in this watch, you can try to determine your Archimede winding mode. You should choose the combined winding mode (CW+CCW) and minimum turns per day (TPD). Then put the watch into the watch winder and check the accuracy of the time displayed by the watch after a few days.  If it runs behind, it is necessary to increase the number of TPD by one step.

Archimede Watch Time Adjustment Method

- Pull the crown outwards with one push
- Set the watch to the exact local time.
- Push in the crown and turn clockwise until secure.
- Push the crown firmly into position 1 and the watch starts to move.
Some Archimede watches have a screw-down crown that must be unscrewed to change the time or date. After use, the crown must be pressed against the case and tightened. Otherwise, it will affect the waterproof performance of the watch.

Can I Always Wind my Watch Manually With the Crown?

It’s okay to do this once in a while, but not too often—especially if your watch has a screw-down crown.
Firstly, with crown winding, the gears and other parts of an automatic movement will wear out faster, as will the screw-in crown system, as it is not designed for frequent use. Self-winding watches should be worn for at least eight hours a day to make the most of their power reserves, so rather than letting your automatic watch's power reserve drain, invest in a simple automatic watch winder.
