E.C. Andersson North Sea

Scandinavian watch brand E.C. Andersson has launched an online campaign on Kickstarter to crowd fund mass production of its latest timepiece, North Sea. The aim is to create a watch that could match both the harsh climate out at sea, and the more formal, social environment once docked in harbor.

Hand-made & assembled in Switzerland, North Sea is a contemporary, self-winding wristwatch that takes inspiration from the very first oyster case, introduced in the early 1900’s. The watch successfully blends the traditional horology with a bold progressive look.
It comes in a solid, 316L stainless steel case measuring 40mm diameter, 10mm thickness, and in brushed finish. On the front side, the face of the watch is protected with curved sapphire crystal and the rear side of the case is secured with stainless steel caseback. Water resistance of the watch is 100 meters.
The dial is highly visible in all conditions, thanks to sharp illuminated indexes, a vivid minute frame and an exposed and white calendar wheel in contrast to the matte black finish of the dial. For North Sea, E.C. Andersson has opted SEIKO NH05 mechanical automatic movement manufactured in Japan. This calibre has  50h power reserve, and features sweeping seconds and “hacking” stop function.
Finally, the North Sea comes with an option of flexible& weather proof Italian vulcanized rubber, black & brown genuine leather and steel “Milanese” mesh bracelet.
By visiting their online Kickstarter campaign, customers can pre-order the North Sea timepiece starting from the pledge amount of kr4200 SEK.
