The Calypso

The Calypso is one of E.C.Andersson Watch Co’s most recognizable watch lines, attracting collectors with its sporty elegance. Following the original design’s lead, the Calypso II was released earlier this year as a follow-up, and sold out its first series shortly after. Priding themselves in creating only a few pieces of each model, E.C.Andersson is now unlocking the last sets of Omega Replica on their web– ready to ship immediately, just in time for the holidays. And yes, it now features a brand new bracelet.

The Calypso II punches above its weight with its solid construction, screw-down crown, 120m water resistance, sapphire crystal, and very wearable 39mm diameter footprint. Not to mention the use of a Power Reserve indicator, which is cleverly placed between the 9 and 10 o’clock hour markers to preserve the dial’s symmetry. Most notable, however, is E.C.Andersson’s dedication to regulating each watch to achieve impressive precision, far exceeding industry standards in this price range.

Of course, a big addition to the Calypso II is the new steel bracelet that integrates with the watch head. The block-style design of the links and the sandblasted finish gives the watch an almost retro-futuristic vibe, and a trigger-released butterfly clasp hides neatly underneath for that unobstructed look. 

 

Centering the timepiece is a vibrant blue dial that pops against the steel surroundings. It features a 3D textured “Enslinje” pattern: A collection of symbols used in coastal navigation, which suitably resembles hourglasses and serves as the inspiration for E.C.Andersson’s logotype. There’s a slight metallic shimmer to the dial surface which plays nicely with the light. Polished indices are applied on top of it and the wider cardinal markers 12, 3, 6, and 9 are filled with SuperLuminova and a framed date wheel is visible at 3’. The power reserve indicator is colored white to be easily distinguished from the indices.

 

The mixture of polished and sandblasted finishes, clear-cut lines, and a striking blue dial pins the Calypso II as s perfect daily wearer. You can easily see it go just as well with a shirt and tie as with tennis shorts and a t-shirt. And that’s the Swiss Replica Watch , the Calypso II is designed to be durable and versatile: a do-all, go-anywhere wrist companion.
