- Odysseus in White Gold.
Just six months after the launch of the new Odysseus in stainless steel with a bracelet, a new version of the Odysseus, more mature, sporty and versatile, is now on the market. I must confess since its launch that I was not a big fan of Odysseus, I never saw it as a sports watch, even though I recognized some efforts that were made in this direction, like the bracelet, I also didn’t understand the reason for a blue dial instead of another consensual choice like black, but those were my eyes and they are what they are.
This new Odysseus shows me a completely different watch and, unlike the stainless-steel version, I plead guilty, and I like everything about it. This new version features a white gold case, slate-grey anthracite dial with astonishing radial groves under the hour’s indexes and also under the second’s indexes on the sub-dial at 6 o’clock, a day/date windows at 3 and 9 o’clock as the first version and a strap with two different options, one in black silicone and the other in dark brown leather, both seem to be great options.
Other specifications: case diameter of 40.5mm, the thickness of 11.1mm, an in-house manual and automatic movement Caliber L 155.1 Datomatic, 120m of water resistance, 50h of power reserve and a price of €39,500.
- Zeitwerk Minute Repeater Blue Dial.

The watch comes with a deep blue dial, the time bridge in rhodiumed German silver with a white minute and hour windows at 3 and 9 o’clock, a seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock and a power reserve dial at 12 o’clock, hands in rhodiumed gold and two hammers that play the gongs every hour, then every ten minutes and finally every minute.
