After many years of planning and conceptualizing, the new A. Lange & Söhne steel sports watch: the Odysseus, is the first regular production steel watch from the Glashutte based brand. As the company’s press release states, “The Odysseus opens up a new chapter for A. Lange & Söhne.”
The new A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus is a day-date watch with small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. The dial is made of brass with different levels and surface finishes and comes exclusively in blue. The hour ring is raised above the rest of the dial and has a circular pattern called azurage, with white gold baton-shaped. Surrounding this ring is the argenté (silver) flange, set at a 45-degree angle, with a dark printed minute scale with 0-60 graduations, and a red marking for “60,” which denotes the sporty nature of this wristwatch, in a subtle way. The 40.5 mm x 11.1 mm case with an integrated stainless steel bracelet, Lange calls the Odysseus a “sporty-elegant watch.”
The Odysseus is powered by the all-new self-winding manufacture calibre L155.1 Datomatic. The three-part steel case is water-resistant to 120 metres, has distinctive pushers to correct the day and date, and features what else but an integrated bracelet. Line and volumes are highlighted by the combination of polished and satin-brushed finishes with perfectly executed chamfered edges.
With this new launch, A. Lange & Söhne joins the select group of big names in haute horlogerie that have been riding the luxury steel sports watch wave for decades. The Odysseus Ref. 363.179 has a price of Euro 28,700. alange-soehne.com. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
