And here is my Calypsomatic 3552:
Excellent web-site by David Kim for those interested in learning more about your Calypsomatic.
Also, CIAS - Calypsomatic International Appreciation Society Group on FaceBook, another good source for owners and those looking for information.
Supposedly the last model, the 8049. First Calypsomatic for me, and very neat indeed
I made a post by itself, wondering if you guys can help me? Any idea on this?
Not a Calypsomatic, just a supercompressor. Dial does look like a redial though.
Hi, your calypsomatic wasn’t the last type number; it’s 3552, assembled from the parts that were left in stock before the company was sold
The calypsomatic 3552:
For basically an assembled watch, that is somewhat aestherically pleasing
Obviously, the gilt dial references are the ones most valud and that the focus is on these models. Is it due to the dial layout and bezel resembling the Submariner, while the later variants (like mine) just don't have that appeal due to the smaller text and different bezel?
Mmmm redial eh. Wondering if it's worth getting at 1500 usd?
Not many people have one, as only a couple of them were made. I am very pleased with this one. Concerning the gilt dails, yes they are most valuable just like the 5913, 1st generation with the star on the dail. Here are some photo’s of my collection:
The ETA movement would also help: my watchmaker spent a good hour doing a minor disassembly and cleaning the balance , and said that the Felsa 905 was rather interesting to work on as the date wheel had teeth on the inside...
Hey what bracelets do u pair with a 7085?
It should be a BoR titus bracelet but I bought one from ebay. Fits perfect!
Calypsomatic’s cousin - Technos Sky Diver and only $89.50 with bracelet!!!!
Here’s an early 5913 with the correct star dial, big-lollipop second hand, countdown bezel, and the rare original crown and tube system. Does anyone else here have one with the original crown ? If so can I ask if the crown should screw down onto the tube ?
The 5913s are very hard to find with the star on the dial. Great catch!
1960's Titus Calypsomatic - Ref. 7085 (3rd execution) Gilt Dial - ETA 2472 on original BoR
Here is an example of the Calypso 7110, i.e., the "junior" case size...32mm case diameter w/o crown, 41.4mm lug-to-lug, 12.5mm case back to top of crown, 17mm band. It uses the same 21 jewel ETA 2472 as the standard size Calypsos. Keeps great time. The challenge I have is finding someone to replace the proper red and blue numbers on the date wheel. The date wheel was white when I purchased the watch....the decals were in pieces in the movement. Can anyone recommend someone capable of doing the work properly?
Hi there, have you made any progress with finding the bits you need? I'm needing a crystal and crown (and a lollipop second hand).
Would you consider selling these?
Here's my 7085 with crazy patina. Had it for about 5 years and had it serviced once. It has unfortunately it lost its hour hand lume. Looking for a bracelet with end links. I have a clasp that might be from a Calypsomatic but not sure.
Beautiful patina on the dial n bezel. Gives the watch it’s unique character.
