Introducing the NightFlight and Neptun Diver, Two New Affordable German-Made Watches from LIMES
For those unconscious, LIMES (like fan-most loved Archimede ) is a brand under the ICKLER umbrella, a family-possessed company that has been producing watches and watch cases in Pforzheim since 1924. In other words, LIMES watches come with many years of ability, with a large part of the turn of events and creation (excepting the Swiss-made developments) executed in-house. This month, LIMES has declared two new deliveries: the NightFlight pilot watch, and the Neptun Diver—two strong value for-your-money alternatives without a moment to spare for the holidays.
First up is the NightFlight, a contemporary reconsidering of a watch initially created by the brand in the mid 2000s. The new take—with its Arabic numerals, triangle at 12, and sharp sword hands—is especially pilot-propelled, however the bundle is absolutely more spruced up than what we see from more customary pilot watches. The hard, precise case has sharp lines and an appealing blend of brushed and cleaned surfaces. The ventured, dark dial highlights applied markers and a cleaned handset. In general, it’s an appealing bundle for a more lavish interpretation of the genre.

Falling under the Endurance assortment, the new Neptun Diver proceeds with LIMES’ custom of creating genuine apparatus divers. Much the same as the NightFlight, the respectably measured Ickler instance of the Neptun highlights a blend of brushed and cleaned surfaces that further complement the hard points and extreme calculation of the case. The dial is dark with straightforward printed markers, there’s a coordinating date window at three and the new cleaned handset integrates the entire thing. And that apparatus diver family? The case, notwithstanding its more just measurements, is appraised to an incredible 100 ATM, demonstrating that a device plunge watch need not be oversized.
