Watches & Wonders 2020: A. Lange & Söhne

A. Lange & Söhne is growing the ODYSSEUS line with a white gold timepiece featuring an integrated rubber or leather strap.

By expanding this range the watchmaker targets a younger and more discerning audience. The sporty-timepiece features a large-format date and day display and a water-resistant case with a grey dial. Besides the case material, the biggest novelty on this watch is the integrated rubber and leather bracelet. This new approach is what made the original Odysseus a success.

Boasting a 40.5mm case with a grey dial, it also features white gold baton hands to ensure optimum legibility in any condition. As usual for A.Lange & Söhne, the numerals of the outsize date and the letters of the large-format day display stand out in white on grey.

The hour markers are luminous. And the overall numeral design contrasts against the glossy matte surfaces. In line with Lange’s philosophy, all parts are lavishly hand-finished and the movement is assembled twice.

Many artisanal details can be discovered with a glance through the sapphire- crystal caseback. They include the German silver plate decorated with Glashütte ribbing, the wave pattern engraved on the balance bridge, and the screwed gold chaton above the escape wheel.

The new member of the Odysseus family is sure to be a success and re-enforces the versatile yet timeless look of this timepiece.
