When the Odysseus by A. Lange & Söhne was announced in 2019, a lot of people took notice. It was to be the first ever sports watch, in steel, with a bracelet by the German haute horlogerie brand. It was unexpected and bold, but a proper A. Lange & Söhne nevertheless. It featured all the hallmarks we love by AL&S, such as ample amounts of decoration on the movement, intriguing design elements and clever solutions for ease-of-use. First introduced in steel, it has since been followed by a white gold version. Today we share our video-review of that very watch and see how it stacks up against the inaugural Odysseus in steel.
And as we’ve explained in our hands-on review of both the steel and white gold Odyssues, this watch is to be taken very seriously. It is not aiming to be something other than a proper A. Lange & Söhne, with a fresh and personal identity. In terms of design the rounded shape of the case and the integration of the bracelet (or rubber or leather strap) stand out on its own. When it comes down to specifications there’s no difference between either one. You still get the same size and shape, with the same beautifully decorated movement. There are a few subtle differences elsewhere though, which are explained in detail in our hands-on video review.
