E.C. Andersson got its beginning by means of Kickstarter back in 2016 with the North Sea , a compelling games watch with a pad case and Seiko programmed. The North Sea II followed a year later with a comparable tasteful and better-directed development, however the shiny new’s GL Kontra-Gauss GMT adds both Swiss mechanics and double time regions for a more refined, modern bundle. An extra spotlight on enemy of attractive protection, precision and hand completing features how the brand has developed in only a couple brief years. It’s more costly than prior collections, however costs are as yet available given the huge overhauls.
E.C. Andersson has a solid Scandinavian plan and creation reasoning. Most habillage parts are created in-house (or in co-activity with neighborhood accomplices in Göteborg) with just privately sourced steel. Innovative 3D printing of treated steel combines with conventional processing and handwork for a completed item that is hearty, solid and rich. At least nine phases of hand completing incorporates pounding, sanding, globule impacting and cleaning, alongside plating of the custom rotor. Longer than a time of innovative work has brought about the brand’s own Kontra-Gauss protecting framework, an enemy of attractive nook that can redirect up to 3600 Gauss of attraction from the development. Both the development and shield are encircled by four layers of steel, giving extra attractive obstruction. The entirety of this is housed for a situation that is only 10mm in tallness.
The hardened steel instance of the E.C. Andersson GL Kontra-Gauss GMT is sourced totally in Sweden (down to the mining of the iron metal) and measures 40mm in width and 10mm in tallness (46mm haul to-carry). It hits that perfect center ground for some – not very large and not minuscule. A striking, cleaned bezel encompasses the somewhat domed sapphire precious stone with a twofold sided against reflective covering. Silk and cleaned components are seen all through the case. The bezel additionally has a strange measure of profundity, slanting into a thick 90-degree edge that adds to the vigorous stylish. A hexagonal screw-down crown has the brand’s logo decorated on a dab impacted surface, while the external edge is ground and cleaned – pleasant tender loving care. Cleaned, chamfered edges are seen on the two sides of the drags and external edge of the presentation case back. As referenced before, the case has an attractive opposition of 3600 Gauss because of the company’s improvement of the Kontra-Gauss protecting framework. All models are water-impervious to 100 meters.
Two sunburst dial choices incorporate blue and dark with an external 24-hour ring. Huge records mark the hours and all are covered with Super-LumiNova. A printed ring inside the primary files denotes the excess minutes in augmentations of five. The white 24-hour ring at the furthest border has Arabic numerals like clockwork and is likewise covered with Super-LumiNova. A gold GMT hand with a lume-filled three-sided tip is highlighted on the blue dial, while the dark dial’s GMT hand is heat-blued. The two dials are spotless, present day and time-just (no date), and have a downplayed refinement.
The heart of the E.C. Andersson GL Kontra-Gauss GMT is a huge update from the past Seiko automatics. The new models are controlled by the Cal.ECA02GL1, in light of the Sellita SW 330-1 programmed. It has 25 gems, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) with a 42-hour power save. Capacities incorporate focal hours, minutes and seconds with a 24-hour GMT hand. The base SW 330-1 additionally has a date complication that is not utilized here. The rotor is created in-house and decorated with blue finish with Precision Certified engraved toward the end. This demonstrates the company’s own in-house guideline for a precision of +4/ – 1 seconds out of every day. Better believe it, that is chronometer region. Seen from the display caseback, the development is additionally decorated with perlage.
Both models come with three 20mm lashes – a waxed incorporated Kudu calfskin with an organization clasp, a miniature flexible, coordinated steel wristband and Italian elastic with an emblazoned clasp.
The E.C. Andersson GL Kontra-Gauss GMT retails for USD 2,100 for the two models with each of the three lashes alternatives included. That is not modest, but rather very much estimated for a refined GMT piece with an in-house created hostile to attractive fenced in area and development exactness in the chronometer range. Each watch is made per request, generally by Erik C Andersson himself, and both dial tones are restricted to 50 pieces each. For more data and to put in a request, visit E.C. Andersson’s site .
