Known for its straightforward designs, immaculate finishing and limited production usually only in precious metals, elements that are all present in fan-favorites like the Lange 1 and the Zeitwerk, A. Lange & Söhne is now launching a new chapter with the brand-new Odysseus, its first regularly produced all-steel timepiece. The Odysseus owes its name to the epic journey of a project that began ten years ago. Since then, A. Lange & Söhne’s first foray into creating an elegant sports watch has gone through several redesigns. It also symbolizes a new path for the brand, one where Lange watches are more dynamic and suited to daily life, rather than for special occasions only. The integrated bracelet is its biggest talking point, in brushed steel and equipped with a folding clasp adjustable by up to seven millimeters using the discreet pusher embossed with the Lange logo that can be pressed in or pulled for a more comfortable fit. The date and day windows are set via tapered buttons on the side of the case, perfectly streamlined into the overall case design. Reinterpreting sports-elegance in true Lange style, Odysseus is only the start of what comes next for the Saxony-based watchmakers.
