About this project

  • We’ve decided to make the caseback more robust by changing to a single-piece screw down construction.
  • Hit first Stretch Goal of SGD 70k, which means everyone gets a FREE Polyurethene strap bundled into their BOLDR. This strap is strong, water resistant and ready to join you on your dives!
  • Surprise upgrade, switching up the lume to BGW9 (Blue Lume) for our indexes & hands , which has 3 times the brightness of our current C1 (green lume).
  • Launch of New SteelBlue S-edition, with Swiss STP1-11, limited to 100pcs. 
  • Meet the MeteoBlack. Beyond the addition of a Swiss STP1-11 movement, the MeteoBlack has a unique dial that’s made from real space meteorite that’s more than 4 billion years old. Each dial will be distinct and unique, where each and every meteorite dial has a different pattern. It’s formed over millions of years of slow cooling, and can’t be reproduced synthetically - so it’s definitely an out-of-this-world look for the Odyssey. 
  • Note: If you have backed the buddy or group rewards, and you would like to upgrade your watches to Steel Blue S edition or MeteoBlack edition, drop us an email at support@boldrwatches.com

 

 

Dive into the next Journey with BOLDR
The BOLDR Odyssey brings BOLDR’s iconic modern styling back with a new original design, in the form of a powerful and stylish automatic dive watch that you can actually dive with. 

The inspiration for the BOLDR Odyssey came from our passion of pushing boundaries in modern-day watchmaking. At BOLDR, our goal has always been to build affordable watches that stay tough while still looking good - forged for urban explorers, from the skyscrapers to the seas.

The Odyssey was designed to be an affordable, automatic dive watch that could follow you on your adventures, while looking damn good on your wrist. Read on for more about the Odyssey.

Deep dive into your next Odyssey.
Featuring an extremely robust case meant for actual diving, the Odyssey can ride rough with an ultra tough high-resistance screwdown caseback, rated for 500m water resistance, and a screw-down crown with triple lock mechanism. A resilient automatic movement (choice of Swiss or Japanese) and helium escape valve makes sure your watch stays strong under any pressure, and is tried and tested for your toughest challenges.  

Bolder, affordable style.
The BOLDR Odyssey blends form and function, in a sleek, modern case design. Functional and fashionable with a dive-functional 120-click unidirectional bezel, complemented by a double domed lens with Anti-Reflective coating, the Odyssey is the perfect tool for dive or daily leisure. The BOLDR Odyssey comes with a premium leather or sturdy rubber strap to suit your personal BOLDR style.

The BOLDR Odyssey comes in three stylish colour combinations:

  • Steel Blue comes with a navy blue dial, white Superlume index markers, in a stainless steel case and bezel. 
  • White Storm comes in a white dial, white Superlume index markers, with a stainless steel case and gunmetal bezel, the bezel comes in IP-Titanium.
  • Ever Black comes with a black dial, white Superlume index markers with a all-black stainless steel case and bezel, the entire watch comes with DLC coating.

The case + bezel of the Ever Black come with Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) Coating. This dark coating provides diamond-like-hardness and resistance to corrosion - making the watch more durable and and long-lasting.

The White Storm comes with an IP-Titanium case. 

At BOLDR, we’re more than a brand - we’re a community. Which is why we’ve listened to all the feedback,and included the top requested features - such as a sapphire glass display, automatic movement and superlume on the dial.

We always endeavour to keep you up to date on shipping information, but we hope you understand that once the product leaves our hands - there’s often little we can do to speed things up with our shipping partners or your country’s customs department. If you do run into any trouble - please contact us directly at: support@boldrwatches.com

When manufacturing physical goods, production delays are a very real problem. While we’ve never experienced that before with our manufacturers, we would like to assure you that if we do experience any delays, it would be due to us ensuring that we’re delivering the best product with the best quality possible.
