E.C. Andersson released the Calypso Premium watch with success just three month ago. Aimed at whom the brand describes as “the pickiest enthusiasts,” it was positioned as a true high-end watch that would bring E.C. Andersson into a new segment — equipped with a reliable, automatic Swiss movement, the ETA 2824-2 regulated and Precision Certified in-house; and customized with an in-house rotor, a sapphire display back, and B3-Bohuslän hands on a radial-gradient dial. Despite reaching its goal of making what it considers its finest creation yet, E.C. Andersson Watch Co. didn’t want to stop there, which is why it’s now introducing an entry-level model to the Calypso family – a proud sibling, if you will – starting at only €420 during pre-order, or 40% off the listed price.
E.C. Andersson Watch Co. is releasing both models as a short pre-order special on its website, and expects to sell out during its 22-day running time. Fans of the brand are urged to order now so as not to miss out.
Available on a sandblasted and polished 316L steel bracelet with butterfly clasp, or mounted on a tailor-made calf leather strap with custom-made buckle, the Premium model boasts a sandblasted case with polished bevels that harmoniously swirl around the edges from lug to lug; unique, modern indices on a radial gradient dial with semi-gloss ocean blue finish; and specially crafted “Bohuslän” arrow hands. The three-tone, custom-made rotor is displayed through the sapphire crystal caseback and powers the Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement, which is hand-regulated and Precision Certified to precise accuracy.
The Calypso Premium features an AR-Coated sapphire display back, so the owner can enjoy viewing the workings of the watch’s self-winding movement whenever he pleases.
The Swiss ETA 2824-2 beating inside the Calypso Premium is hand-regulated in-house, ensuring staggering precision within -1 and +4 seconds daily, and a maximum deviation of +/-4 seconds per 24 hours in five positions. The precision of the Calypso Premium is comparable with that of the absolute best in the business.
The Calypso Premium, described as the “crown jewel” of the E.C. Andersson Collection, is limited to only 80 pieces, 35 of which will be released through the pre-order special on the company’s website.
The Sport model is a high-quality sports watch with a case in sandblasted 316L steel with polished details and featuring a complex, dual-texture embossed dial and “ice-blue” illuminated hands and indices.
Powered by the Miyota 9015 automatic movement, with a stop-seconds function, 28,800 bph operational frequency, and 42 hours of power reserve, the Calypso Sport is available on a sandblasted and polished 316L steel bracelet with butterfly clasp, or on a genuine croc-grained black leather strap with a uni-molded E.C.A steel buckle.
The dial on the Calypso Sport has a dual-textured embossed surface, with a matte base and polished “Enslinje” pattern in relief on the top level. The Calypso Sport is limited to 220 pieces.
Both the Calypso Premium and Calypso Sport are available during the 22-day pre-order special period, both with a very generous discount when ordering early. ecandersson.com
