  • Catalogue Essay

    The launch of Odysseus was a bold move from the conservative German brand. A move that felt like an overdue concept that was waiting for the right time to be launched by A.Lange & Söhne. 2019 marked an important milestone for the manufacturer when it released its very first sports watch, the Odysseus in stainless steel and in 2020 another iteration was created in 18k white gold without the bracelet.

    A.Lange & Söhne selected an elegant grey for the white gold version and under different light, the grey dial takes on warmer shades which is a pleasant surprise with a range of colours it can appear for a grey dial. Further decorated with radial embossing on the minute track and sub-dial, it is unapologetically a Lange design. Gazing the back of the sapphire case back, the wearer can appreciate the fine finishing of the cal. L155.1 which is a sight to behold.

    With scarce production and availability in the market, the Odysseus has become one of the hottest watches available in the market today.

  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.
