For the Dad Who Has Everything: A lange & Söhne Odysseus
The A. Lange & Söhne Odysseus reference 363.179 has been a huge success for the brand, as this stainless-steel model is both Uber rare and now fetching for a premium over its list price. Markedly, the Odysseus was the first full production stainless steel model from Lange and is strikingly beautiful in both its simplicity and overall sense of formality that you can instantly associate with A. Lange & Söhne. Its prim and proper, but is not to be regarded as solely a dress watch. In fact, this watch is just as sporty as its competitors, be it the Nautilus or Royal Oak.
This watch conveys a seriousness and maturity that is not found in its competitors and offers the same amount of versatility as it does complexity, through impeccable German engineering of the Lange Caliber L 155.1 Datomatic.
This watch sits around £85,000
