Here we are with the Milus Archimedes Watch Review!
Milus is a historic Swiss brand founded in 1919 and Archimèdes is the modern successor to their Super compressor model from the 1970s as well as the 666, the original model created a decade earlier.
This swiss made watch intrigued me from the beginning thanks to its design and its dial, simple, complete and compact.
Today I want to review it with you and I want to explain why I consider it one of the best choices for value for money.
First let’s start with the packaging, simple and minimal but at the same time useful. A comfortable leather travel case, containing watch and strap.
I really appreciated this choice because I have never loved bulky boxes that are always abandoned in the attic and I must say that many brands are moving towards this choice such as Oris with the mare nostrum model.
This watch is immediately ready to use, in fact, the strap is mountable through a button convenient and fast.
The case is brushed, with a diameter of 41 mm and a black dial and internal bidirectional rotating bezel.
Hhands are typical of vintage Milus 60s/70s “Broad Arrow” style and coated with SuperLuminova with excellent glow in the dark.
Milus Archimèdes – movement and features
This timepiece is powered by an ETA 2892A2 (TOP) movement with 42 hours of power reserve and is water resistant to 300 meters.
The crown is screw-down (as is the case back) while the crystal is sapphire with anti-reflective treatment.
In addition to all these features, the watch also has a helium valve, which I remember is used to allow the helium molecules to escape during immersion, avoiding creating any damage to the watch.
This watch is in my opinion a great choice mainly for 3 reasons and they are also the ones I evaluate every time I buy a watch:
History of the brand we are not talking about a brand born a few months ago but a historic watchmaker born in 1919 and has just turned 100 years old.
When you buy a watch we are not just buying a physical object but the price is also justified by the seriousness of the brand and the history behind it.
Quality of materials and movement. As soon as I wore the watch I immediately perceived the quality of the materials of which this timepiece is made, from the leather strap to the finishes of the case and dial, everything is in perfect harmony.
In addition, we are not talking about a basic movement but the choice of a TOP grade in my opinion justifies the price that I consider low.
Price in my opinion consistent, under 2 thousand euros and in an affordable range. We can have a Swiss Made watch with a great movement at a reasonable price.
