It’s been a long wait for fans of E.C.Andersson Watch Company since the pre-order release of the Calypso Arctic Sport. Right on schedule, however, all orders have finally been shipped and a stock of 30 pieces remains for new customers, with immediate shipping worldwide. As has become customary, E.C.Andersson offers a 10% discount for WatchTime readers on the last remaining watches, and orders made before the 18th of December will arrive before Christmas day.
The Arctic Sport is the third iteration of the Calypso collection, and perhaps the model best manifesting E.C.Andersson’s bold take on Scandinavian design. It’s made with the Northern winter in mind, targeted to outdoorsmen who often find themselves in nature without access to electric or natural light. The anti-reflective dial, however, is just as legible during the few hours of sun, when snow may cast a blinding glare.
