The original 1970’s Milus Super Compressor watch served as the inspiration for the modern-day Archimèdes by Milus. The Super Compressor case played an important role in the history of dive watches. Its innovative design utilizes as unique “ compressor” system whereby the case becomes more watertight as the watch descends deeper. As atmospheric pressure increases, the caseback is compressed on the gaskets creating a tighter seal. This was a major selling point back in the 1970’s and Super Compressor watches stand tall as some of the most coveted dive watches today.
