Following the release of the Calypso II, a sophisticated sports watch, E.C.Andersson Watch Co. is complementing its lineup with a heavy-duty timepiece, designed to be worn in the most demanding environments.
Some might call it an adventure watch, a survival watch, or an all-inclusive tool-watch. No matter the title, the all new E.C.A Poseidon is the company’s most capable timepiece yet, feature-packed and built to withstand just about anything you throw at it. The watch is available in a limited run of 120 pieces, starting today at ecandersson.com.
One thing enthusiasts have come to love with E.C.Andersson’s design language is its ability to pack multiple features into its watches and still keep a clean and uncluttered appearance. The Poseidon is easy to read, even at a glance, as the primary information is both lumed and presented in sharper contrast than the secondary. Another innovative move by E.C.A was designing the power-reserve and am/pm indicators as disks, which helps users avoid mistaking the features for markers or hands when giving the watch a quick peek.
The am/pm indicator, which is displayed in white and orange just below the center of the dial, is partly used together with the bezel as a second time zone, but is also a part of the watch’s compass feature. With help from the sun and by combining the straight markers of the bezel and the colors of the 24h disk, true north can be established with great accuracy. Notably, you don’t have to memorize how to do this to use the feature, as instructions are etched into the Poseidon’s case-back and is thus with you at all times.
Protecting the mechanical functions of the Poseidon is a sturdy and well-proportioned 40mm case, equipped with a 2.4mm shockproof sapphire crystal. The AR-coating is applied on the inside, making it as impervious to scratches as the ceramic insert surrounding it. The bezel itself is machined into rugged teeth with an 0.5mm overhang to ensure easy grip even if you’re wearing thick gloves.
Ceramic bi-directional timing bezel, second time zone, 2-stage compass, 24 hour-am/pm disk, power reserve disk, date calendar, 2.4mm shockproof sapphire, 120m water resistance and an automatic movement regulated in-house— that’s an impressive spec list for a watch with a $795 USD starting price.
The Poseidon is available in a limited run of 120 pieces at E.C.Andersson’s website. As always, early customers enjoy a generous price reduction. The watch is expected to sell out during pre-orders, so get yours now to become one of the owners: ecandersson.com
