We’ve seen an ever growing amount of Scandinavian watchmakers making their mark in the world of horology of late and there is another that has caught our eye in the shape of this stealthy but stylish number that goes by the name of the E.C Andersson Calypso Watch which is funding on Kickstarter right now.
The E.C Andersson Calypso Watch has Scandinavian design and Swiss quality so it really is the best of both worlds and for those who are serious about their watches and want a touch of luxury on their wrist without breaking the bank, this cracking accessory might be just the ticket. Stylish and robust in nature, the Calypso Watch is the brand’s most meticulously made watch to date, a genuine high-end timepiece that showcases their design talents.
Swiss Quality On Show
When it comes to quality timepieces, E.C.Andersson know what they’re doing and the Calypso Watch is entirely custom-designed in-house and comes equipped with the most reliable Swiss automatic movement on the market – so, right off the bat, you can see this is quite unlike a lot of the timepieces that you’ll find on Kickstarter. This magnificently stylish Scandinavian offering is mounted on a tailor-made calf leather strap alongside a custom-made buckle and a sandblasted watch case with polished bevels that effortlessly swirl around the edges from lug to lug.
The highly aesthetically pleasing and unique modern indices on a radial gradient dial of the Calypso Watch from E.C Andersson are finished in semi-gloss ocean blue coating, and nestle securely under the specially crafted “Bohuslän” arrow hands to give a most pleasing visual impact to the timepiece. Proving incredibly popular already on Kickstarter, this luxurious looking accessory has a three-tone, one-of-a-kind rotor that is displayed beneath the sapphire crystal back-plate, and is powered extremely efficiently by the Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement.
A striking dial is the first thing you’ll likely notice about this cracking timepiece from E.C Andersson. It is housed in the 40mm diameter case and it is a radial gradient dial that will immediately draw the eye. The case of this super cool looking timepiece is durable, sporty, yet elegant aesthetically and ideally suited for any occasion, both in terms of robustness and visual appeal. Crafted from sandblasted 316L stainless steel with carefully polished edges that run through the case like the flow of water, you’ll not be able to take your eyes off this watch.
Performance on Point
There are an awful lot of elements to E.C Andersson to be impressed with when it comes to watchmaking, not least is their Performance Centre which they set up to measure amplitude, beats error, accuracy, magnetic and pressure resistance in detail. More importantly, they boast the tools to perfect those attributes and this shines through in their finished products and combines to make their timepieces so impressive and well performing.
This top notch Kickstarter campaign is a fine example of the sort of quality that can be found on the crowdfunding platform and for any man on the lookout for an incredibly robust, stylish and well-crafted timepiece in 2018 and one that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg (you can pick one up for under £900 on Kickstarter) then this is the campaign for you.
