The Archer Aero video

January 30, 2009

With each Archer watch that I sell, I include a document showing the build of that customer’s watch.  I have always received very positive feedback on this idea from my customers, so I thought a video version showing the process would be fun for people to see.

This video shows the building and testing of an Archer Aero pilot watch.


Cheers, Al


Introducing the Archer Aero II

January 17, 2009

New for 2009 a variation on the Archer Aero (the most popular Archer model to date).  The Archer Aero II features a new case design and finish.  The new case has more rounded lugs, a chamfered bezel, and a bead blasted finish for a more rugged appearance.

The Aero II case is 42mm in diameter not including the crown, uses spring bars and accepts a 22mm strap.  The case features sapphire crystals both front and back, and the front crystal has a double anti-reflective coating.  The movement is an ETA 6497 with the hours and minutes on the main dial, and the seconds on the sub-dial located at 9 o’clock.  The movement features côtes de Genève decoration, rhodium plating, and blued screws.



The original Aero model is still available.
