Watch and Watch Cases – German precision since 1924  Made in Pforzheim / Germany

ICKLER manufactures premium quality watches and watchcases, made to the highest standards, for a demanding international clientele – all made in Germany.

Karl Ickler was working as the head of the manufacturing department for a number of foreign companies. Armed with this invaluable cache of experience, he founded his own watchcase factory. In 1947, his two sons rebuilt the company, which had lain dormant during the war. Today the company is managed by Thomas and Lisa Ickler, members of the third and fourth generation of the family.

Each watch and watch case made by Ickler are continuously quality-controlled along every step of the manufacturing process. From turning and milling, to polishing and assembly of the multi-part cases, and from the mounting of the movements, dials and hands, to the final quality check.

 

 

Every timepiece is thoroughly tested before it leaves the factory and carries a two-year international warranty. An Ickler watch will accompany its wearer for decades, with every glance at the watch designed to bring the wearer joy. That’s why the designers of Ickler watches renounce fleeting design trends in favor of classic elegance and premium quality.

The watchcases are crafted in-house, from solid blocks of stainless steel, pure titanium or bronze. Our experienced craftsmen use the latest high-tech CNC machinery, guaranteeing ultimate precision. When it comes to polishing the surfaces, assembling parts and complete watches, and the thorough quality control, the foundation of the Ickler process lies on careful human touch and intuition.



     

 

Watch brands ARCHIMEDE and LIMES ICKLER Case Manufaturing Heat Blued Steel Hands
Since 1924 we manufacture premium quality for our own watch brands and also for a demanding international clientele. Planning and designing of the ARCHIMEDE line began at the turn of the new millennium. In 2003, the first models were brought to market. Offering exceptional quality at an affordable price point, it soon became clear that the ARCHIMEDE brand would be very successful. Ickler began making private label watches in 1990. With a desire to turn their decades of experience in the watch industry towards the development of their own line of premium watches, Ickler began planning the LIMES brand a few years later. The LIMES collection includes the elegant Pharo family, the exclusive Chyros models and the sporty Endurance instrument watches. Since 1924 ICKLER manufactures premium quality watchcases, made to the highest standards. Almost every part of an Ickler watch is developed and manufactured in-house: Design, Construction, Prototyping, Parts, Production, Surface finishing/treatment, Laser engraving, assembly and quality control. The watchcases are crafted in-house, from solid blocks of stainless steel, pure titanium or bronze. Our experienced craftsmen use the latest high-tech CNC machinery, guaranteeing ultimate precision. When it comes to polishing the surfaces, assembling parts and complete watches, and the thorough quality control, the foundation of the Ickler process lies on careful human touch and intuition. After an extensive development phase and thorough testing, we are delighted to offer high quality – in-house fabricated – heat-blued steel hands. The laser cutting is performed in-house using our Trumpf laser, allowing us complete flexibility. The first model to feature our new heat-blued steel hands is the ARCHIMEDE DeckWatch. At the Ickler workshops, the hands are laser-cut, circumventing the need for expensive stamping processes and allowing us to produce the steel hands in smaller quantities of 50 to 100 sets. Our unique production process makes it possible to produce the hands with a stunning, homogenous blue coloring.
