Review: Archimede Pilot 200 Watch

The Archimede Pilot 200 is an exceptional watch that combines style, functionality, and durability. From the moment you lay your eyes on it, you’ll be captivated by its sleek and elegant design, which is both classic and modern at the same time.

Design and Features

One of the most impressive features of this watch is its sturdy and reliable build. The case is made of high-quality brushed stainless steel, which not only makes it durable but also gives it a refined and sophisticated look. The sapphire crystal glass is scratch-resistant, ensuring that your watch remains looking as good as new for years to come. Having tried the watch on for a few weeks, I can confidently say that the watch feels excellent in quality. It has some weight and the finishing on the case and bracelet are very good. It certainly is not inferior to any well known popular Swiss watch brands.

The Pilot 200 is a highly functional timepiece that offers high legibility and a simple elegant design. The deep black dial contrasted with with sword hands and indices makes reading the time an easy task. Furthermore, the pop of orange on the seconds hand adds a stunning highlight to the dial. The luminous hands and markers make it easy to read the time in low light conditions due to the strong low light performance. The Swiss made automatic movement ensures that the watch keeps perfect time, while the 200m water resistance makes it suitable for swimming and diving.

Besides the steel band, the watch also comes packaged with an extra leather strap as well which elevates the look and gives increased versatility of use.
