1950's

An homage to the design of the Fifties


The 1950's is a completely new watch of the ARCHIMEDE collection. Dials and hands are domed in the style of that time. The case hase a curved Plexi crystal. This construction allowed a visually thin design. 

In those days ICKLER produced many cases with plexy crystals for domed dials and hands (images from the ICKLER archive):

 

For test purposes movement, dial and hands were assembled to the case. On the first foto you can see how they checked 50 years ago whether the hands have enough space below the plexy-crystal. CAD was far away. The cases should be as flat as possible which could be done by using the construction with domed dials and plexy crystals. Especially the 18K-gold-cases had to be very thin to reduce weight and thus material costs.

The reliable, thin automatic Citizen movement is decorated with beautiful sunbrush on the rotor and Geneva stripes.

The plexy crystals do not have any coating. Therefore removing smaller scratches can be done by polishing.
