Our inspiration comes from the pioneers of deep sea diving, Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh, who were the first people to explore the deepest part of the world's ocean, the Mariana Trench. They were considered as visionaries and risk takers of their era, and the Odyssea is created with the same values in mind.
INSPIRED BY YOU
Over the past year, we have received tremendous support and interaction from our backers, new customers, and interest groups who are passionate about watches and its growing micro-brand industry.
We have learnt plenty from your feedbacks and requests over the past year when discussing about the Odyssea dive watch. And now, everything you love about the Mark I is retained in our new design, while elements and features you wish to see is now brought to life in the Mark II.
Our new dial features a luxurious ceramic dial, brushed with a sunburst finish to provide an additional touch of class on the Odyssea Mark II.
One of our priorities when designing the Mark II is to improve the luminosity of the hands, indexes, and bezel markings. After multiple testings and resampling, our manufacturer has now improved the brightness and longevity of the luminosity on the Mark II by using an improved application method. We also use the BGW9 blue lume to compliment the modern design philosophy of the Odyssea dive watch.
There were many requests to improve the bracelet on the Odyssea, and we have spent much time in studying our own watch and bracelets from other luxury brands with the objective to greatly improve the bracelet in our Mark II.
ALL BRUSHED FINISH
Instead of a polished-brushed bracelet, we now apply an all brushed finish on our Mark II's bracelet to enhance its scratch resistance to serve its purpose of an active dive watch. The all brushed finish also adds an overall classy feel to the watch.
FLEXIBILITY AND COMFORT
We found that there were 2 factors that influence the flexibility of the bracelet, i) length of each link and ii) pins used in between the links. After much research, we found that shorter links allow the overall bracelet to contour easily onto our wrists while the new caspa style pins and tubes further enhance the flexibility of the bracelet.
THICKNESS OF THE BRACELET
Last but not least, we have added a subtle 0.5mm thickness to our bracelet to provide additional heft without adding too much bulk. The result is a more masculine and solid bracelet.
The Odyssea's design philosophy seeks to balance masculinity with modern elegance. With the Odyssea Mark II, we have managed to reduce the thickness of the watch case to a sleek 12.75mm (from the previous 14.5mm) while retaining its 200 meters water resistance rating.
The Odyssea emblem that pays homage to the pioneer divers is now beautifully stamped as we seek to refine every fine details in our design of the Mark II.

GENUINE STITCHED CALF LEATHER STRAP (UNLOCK AT SGD65,000)
This year, we would like to introduce the ultra soft and high quality calf leather strap (as shown below) to the Odyssea family. However, as this will add to the cost of our production, we will need to place this under our stretch goal. Do share this campaign and unlock this stretch goal together!
One of the biggest concerns that backers face is the long waiting period that can be intimidating. That is why, we have chosen to bear the risk for you and begin production (by first paying deposit) even before our Kickstarter campaign launches so as to bring forward the date of completion.
We hope that this will give our backers greater assurance as we shorten the post-campaign waiting period for you.
Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenge when going through post campaign is the long production period. We are able to counter this problem by putting in a deposit in advance to get the production started early so that our backers can receive their watches earlier than other campaigns that involve manufacturing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
