    A few thoughts about the case:



    Hooded lugs aren't my thing but the steep angle of the case in this area softens the visual impact.





    However, this angled area also creates the effect of making the corners of the watch more pronounced, which doesn't look quite right when you look at the watch straight on. Just a personal thing.




    I would also say that the lugs are quite straight so the watch doesn't sit particularly well on my wrists, although in fairness it's only something I noticed when looking for something to comment on, rather than an issue that has bothered me when wearing the watch. And it is probably exacerbated by my slim wrists. The curve of the lug area and shape of the bezel helps the watch slip under shirt cuffs nicely.

    The seconds hand is heat-treated steel but is quite a bit lighter than other blued hands I've seen (e.g. on a Nomos Tangente, which looks black most of the time), allowing it to stand out against the black dial. The tip is Breitling-esque in shape and is also lumed, which is a nice touch.

    Aude, from Ickler, replied to my email and confirmed this watch has anti-reflective coating on inner side of sapphire crystal.

    The crown is worth a mention. The knurling is deep so it's easy to grip but doesn't feel sharp like some crowns can. The logo is nice as well.

    Archimede posted on Facebook that the bracelet for the 41mm Outdoor Protect Antimagnetic will be available “soon”

    To mark my last day with the Archimede, I decided to see what it would look like on a variety of straps. It works well on most and will look great on that bracelet above - a very versatile watch. Tomorrow it will be sent to the next member in the pass around. Thanks to Archimede for lending their watch and Mike Stuffler for organising its journey around Europe.

    According to Archimede’s Facebook page, the Outdoor Protect Antimagnetic is now available on the steel bracelet. It’s not yet showing that option on their website, but they posted a photo. It looks great and I hope the bracelet can be ordered separately for those of us who already own it.

    Could any of you reviewers kindly measure the dial/crystal diameter for me, please?
