A Very Scandinavian Dive Watch: The E.C.A Denise

After the success of last year’s Calypso, E.C.Andersson Watch Co. is back with its first professional dive and heavy-duty tool watch, produced within the brand’s recognizable Scandinavian style.

The E.C.A Denise is quite the opposite of a standard “heavy-duty” tool watch. It’s sophisticated and refined, yet optimized for an active lifestyle.

Designed with the intention of being worn year-round, the Denise is as functional while diving in the ocean during the summer as it is during a winter hike through the Alps. Rated to 200-meter water resistance, the ceramic bezel can also be utilized as a reliable compass.

A centrally positioned power reserve indicator lets you know exactly how much energy is stored within the watch if you ever need to put it down, knowing how long the movement will keep running. When fully wound, the movement runs for 50+ hours and is calibrated by hand in E.C. Andersson’s Performance Center to assure outstanding accuracy. Since the watch features a rubber bracelet, it will most commonly lay on its side when not in use, E.C.Andersson thus optimized the calibration to a crown-up resting position.

The E.C.A Denise can be ordered for a limited discount on their website starting today.

The Denise’s rubber bracelet is designed to take a beating while being comfortable to wear. With the new dive buckle, you can adjust the length of the bracelet an extra 8.5mm without removing the watch from your wrist, made to quickly expand the bracelet when wearing the Denise over a wet-suit or a ski-jacket. The lugs are drilled to fit single-shoulder spring bars, securing the bracelet from being accidentally torn off the case.

The case is a continuation of E.C.Andersson’s Calypso design, sturdy but sophisticated, with broad shoulders and clear-cut bevels swirling around the watch from lug-to-lug. Denise is shorter than the Calypso by 2 mm while remaining 40 mm in diameter. It is 14 mm in height and features finely applied angles to achieve a sleek look, suitable for wear during all occasions. The gap between strap and case is covered, making any 20 mm accessory integrated to the watch.

As always with E.C.Andersson Watch Co, the Denise is limited and marks the last model to be released through pre-order before the company moves on to stocked pieces on listing price. E.C. Andersson Watch Co. offers a heavy discount, starting at 860 EUR, which is approximately 25% off listing price and of course VAT free outside EU. The last few E.C. Andersson timepieces sold out during their pre-order stage, so make sure to secure yours before it’s too late.

  1. Denise? Really?
    Puts you in mind of a admin assistant from the 70s or 80s. “Pop the kettle on will you Denise, the area manager is on his way in”.
    What a terrible name for a quite good looking watch.
