Back in 2020, I did a full aBlogtoWatch review of the then-new Milus Archimedes diver’s-style watch. Today, I look at one of the new dial color variations: the Milus Archimedes Silver Storm, one of several new colors for this vintage-style sports watch collection. When Milus devised this modern version of the Archimedes, it went back to its archives and started with an iconic design from 1970 that used a “super compressor-style” case. These cases are typified by having an internal rotating bezel that is operated via a crown, as opposed to a rotating diver’s style bezel that you operate by physically turning it.
What Milus does particularly well with the Archimedes Super Compressor-style watch is offer a trendy vintage-themed look, inspired by its own authentic brand history and produced as a totally modern watch with welcome amenities and quality — all for a price that is very sensible and suited for those who not only watch a nice-looking timepiece but also the full Swiss Made experience from a historic brand. What I like about this particular version of the Milus Archimedes is the silver-on-silver look of the dial and case. This isn’t the first time we are seeing this color combination, but I really like watches in silver with blue trim. The watch also looks visually larger than it is, as there is no obvious border between the dial, bezel, and case.
