Following the success of its most recent promotion, E.C.Andersson Watch Co. seeks to end sales of the North Sea II watch in the same place that they started: right here on WatchTime.com.
“We began sales of the limited North Sea II here on WatchTime.com and almost sold out,” Erik C. Andersson, founder of E.C.Andersson Watch Co., explains. “What better place to end it, we thought.”
The North Sea Watch won’t be produced again, as it’s a watch made in strictly limited edition of 250 pieces and will remain so. Left in stock are about 30 watches, which means this is the last opportunity to get your hands on this Scandinavian sports watch, with the calendar wheel exposed in the center of a pillow-shaped steel case. And yes – once again, E.C.Andersson Watch Co. is offering a discount, 10% off, when using the discount code “WT2” during checkout.
Development of the North Sea II
A lot of research was made for the North Sea II in order to achieve high-end accuracy of the movement and new shock-absorbing properties. Among the highlights is a thicker AR-Coated double-dome sapphire crystal to enhance durability substantially and make the dial pop like never before. The crown has grown by a millimeter in diameter and been equipped with a sturdy, solid steel screw-down lock mechanism — a move that not only ensures great pressure resistance, but adds a new level of quality feel when handling the watch’s settings.
As E.C.Andersson Watch Co.’s design philosophy emphasizes versatility and suitability in any environment, long-lasting illumination was critical. That led the designers to simply apply thicker layers of bright lume on both indices and each hand. They also added a fine bevel to smooth out the edges of the calendar wheel, enhancing the overall harmony of the dial.
Perhaps the most important work was put into the movement. “We wanted to keep the price tag at the same level as the standard North Sea, but provide a reliable high-end timekeeper,” Andersson explains. “That led us to modify the beloved Cal.NH05 movement to a new standard.”
The E.C.Andersson team regulated all movements by hand, reaching an accuracy that was beyond ambitions, comparable to that of far more expensive brands. The material used in the hands was replaced by lighter metals, making the hands run smoother and rendering them more impervious to shocks. The tubes of the central stem were tightened to ensure high tension and rapid communication between movement and hands. Finally, the frame was replaced by a solid metal movement holder and sturdier dial clamps. The North Sea II was born — and the last remaining pieces are being sold here, with immediate and free worldwide shipping by DHL Express.
The E.C.Andersson North Sea II
Made to be worn in both the harsh climate out at sea and the more formal, social environment once docked in the harbor, and inspired by the early 1900s’ pillow cases, the North Sea II is a watch that pays tribute to the heritage of horology, merged with a progressive Scandinavian design language.
The North Sea II is made to be highly visible in all conditions thanks to sharp, illuminated indices, a distinctive minute frame and a unique, expressive white calendar wheel that contrasts the matte black dial. The sturdy caliber NH05 mechanical automatic movement, beating reliably for decades without service, is equipped with an impressive 50-hour power reserve.
E.C.Andersson’s strong belief is that the 40-mm case diameter is the golden measurement: it simply looks great on any wrist size and will stand the fluctuating trends through the ages. Let your North Sea be passed on for generations.
