E.C.Andersson Watch Co. just ended a 21-day pre-order special for the Calypso timepiece on its website, and it’s almost completely sold out. A successful release was expected, but the brand didn’t imagine it going over this well. Although the Calypso collection isn’t yet “in stock,” only 15 Calypso Premium watches are left to order out of the limited edition run of 80. The same goes for the Calypso Sport, a slightly lower-priced sibling, with thirteen currently available.
The Calypso Collection
The Calypso Premium is the crown-jewel of the E.C.Andersson collection, featuring a Precision Certified ETA 2824 automatic movement with a custom-made winding rotor displayed through an exhibition case-back. “Bohuslän” arrow hands sit on top a blue two-tone gradient dial, with illuminated applied indices.
The Calypso Premium is hand-regulated and Precision Certified in-house, promising precision of within -1/+4 seconds average deviation per 24 hours running time.
The Calypso Sport is the more affordable sibling, featuring an automatic Cal. 9015 movement with stop-second function. The dial has a complex dual-textured embossed surface.
Both models use a 316L sandblasted steel case with polished details, mounted on an integrated steel bracelet or a genuine calf-leather strap with a uni-molded E.C.A Buckle.
E.C.Andersson Watch Co. strives to balance the fine line between progressive and classic sophistication, a passionate process that makes the creators unwilling to make big batches of each model, and rather focus on high-quality control and perfecting each design.
The Bold Side of Scandinavian Watch Design
E.C. Andersson focuses on functionality and durability, yet its designs differ from traditional Scandinavian companies due to the brand’s more adventurous approach.
E.C.Andersson strives to make watches equally fitting for the harsh climate out at sea, and the more formal, social environment once docked in harbor.
Make sure to claim your Calypso watch before they sell out. There are currently 15 pieces or less remaining of each model. As it has done before, E.C.Andersson is offering a 10% discount for WatchTime readers. Use the code “WatchTime” in checkout.
