Put aside all the sports watches you know; The A. Lange & Söhne design, which we know closely, meets with its lovers in the Odysseus collection, again with valuable material, white gold.
We present you one of the most eye-catching novelties of Watches & Wonders 2020: A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus with a white gold case… A. Lange & Söhne, which made a fast entry to the sports watch segment with the Odysseus model named after the collection, added a new version with a white gold case to the model family within the scope of Watches & Wonders 2020 platform.
The creation process for the model, which is a building block on the long journey of the brand, proceeds as follows: When A. Lange & Söhne designers find a new idea; they first need to answer some critical questions. “Is it possible to integrate the concept into one of our existing product families? On the other hand, should we develop a brand new approach? ” And you would guess, answering these questions is not always easy; the way to reach the solution is through doing different experiments. Things have progressed exactly like that in Odysseus. A characteristic design emerged when the same size day display was placed in front of the big date display, which became a prestige and icon in luxury watchmaking with its classic double window, and everyone in the brand agreed that this model would constitute the cornerstone of the sixth watch family of A. Lange & Söhne.
The new A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus model has two different references: The cases of both models are made of 18K white gold. Ref. 363.038 comes on a gray stitched, hand-made dark brown strap while the Ref. 363.068 shows up with a black rubber strap. Both models feature 18K white gold buckles.
The white gold cases measure 40.5mm in diameter and 11.1mm in height. A sapphire crystal with a hardness rating of 9 protects the meticulously crafted dial. Thanks to the sapphire crystal display case back, the movement that makes you admire German workmanship every time you look at it, can be enjoyed. Tapered pushers for adjusting the day and date are located above and below the crown. The case shows resistance to water pressure up to 120 meters. Yes, now you can wear your A. Lange & Söhne watch, go down to the beach and start swimming.
The new A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus displays the time through a gray dial. White gold hands and baton-shaped notch hour markers are easily legible on a dark background. White color is also used in the numbers and letters on the big date and day display. Like the hour and the minute hands, markers can shine in the dark. While the outer part of the hour markers and seconds sub-dial is decorated with embossed corrugated texture, it contrasts with the glossy matte surfaces in the center of the dial and the sub-dial.
Odysseus, one of the most remarkable models of the show, beats with the hand-wound Caliber L155.1 DATOMATIC that provides 50 hours power reserve when fully wound.
