Introducing the Pilot 42 KS, a New Hand-Wound Pilot Watch from Archimede

It’s a hand-cranker controlled by the always solid Unitas/ETA 6498, an enormous pocket watch type tracing all the way back to the 1950s. The Ickler-presented defense estimates 9.9mm thick with a drag to-carry stature of 51mm, so it’s wearable on a scope of wrists and a decent sum more modest than the long-accessible 45mm adaptation. At three is a noticeable precious stone crown endorsed with the Archimede “A,” and the watch is water impervious to 5 ATM. The dial is suitably straightforward and simple to peruse, with the sub-dial at six adjusting the logo under 12. At last, sitting on the dial is a domed sapphire gem with inner AR, adding to the general readability of the watch.
