E.C.Andersson Bohuslän Swiss Made Automatic Dive Watch

Today we introduce a promising young watch brand E.C.Andersson and its innovative Bohuslän Swiss Made automatic dive watch. Before taking a dive into the special features and technical details of this new watch, we want to enumerate following points.

Following specifications are must have for a modern day dive watch:
  • Solid watch case which can stands the extreme pressures of the ocean depths.
  • Uni-directional rotational bezel for measuring dive timings.
  • An accurate and robust movement that can deliver the timekeeping functions even at the extreme conditions.
  • A highly readable dial that can offer the view of basic time and other displays even in darkest conditions of the ocean depths.
  • High resistant crystal to protect the watch face and screw down crown to ensure the water resistance.
  • Water resistant strap.
With the above specifications, you can find hundreds of dive watch models in the market with a price range from accessible to ultra luxury based on the materials, specifications and the legacy of brands involved. In most of the cases, basic design and construction of a dive watch remains same, especially when it comes to the positioning of the bezel.
Revolutionizing the concept of a basic dive watch, the Swedish watch brand E.C.Andersson announces its new model, the Bohuslän, a contemporary diving instrument that is versatile and boasts some unique features.
The E.C.Andersson Bohuslän watch as a tribute to traditional watch making, comes in a custom designed oyster pillow case inspired by legendary water proof watches of the golden ages of mechanical watch making. The innovative design brought out by the brand in this watch is the inner bezel that itself positioned as the inner circle of the dial.
The highly visible outer dial along with luminous hands and indexes indicates the basic time. The moveable inner dial can be used as a bezel or chronograph counter by operating the screw-in crown. With every turn on the crown, the bezel markers will align accurately with every minute, giving a satisfactory "clicking" sensation 60 times per complete turn.
The screw down lock prevents the bezel from moving once set. Available in matte black or matte white variation, the outer dial also displays a date indication at 3’o clock.
Tested for a water resistance up to 200 meters, each timepiece houses the state of the art ETA 2824-2 automatic movement modified to fit the unique inner bezel. The watch is designed in Scandinavia and built entirely by hand in Switzerland, from movement and parts to assembly and quality control.
The solid 316L stainless steel pillow case, measuring 40mm in diameter and 10mm thickness, comes fitted with a scratch resistant sapphire glass.
The E.C.Andersson Bohuslän watch is worn with a water resistant, custom made rubber strap featuring Royal crown folding clasp. The ornamental crown emblem on the watch's case back, on the folding clasp, and on the screw crown pays tribute to the royal lineage of Scandinavian countries.
E.C.Andersson has recently launched an online crowd funding campaign to fund the production of Bohuslän Swiss made automatic dive watch. Price, shipping details and other specifications are available at :
