The French watchmaking brand Michel Herbelin expands its Odyssée Chronograph collection with a new version on a leather strap. The sporty 70's-inspired timepiece has a distinctive allure with its singular decagonal bezel.
In timely step with the vintage trend, this new Michel Herbelin model has its own self-assured style. The bezel of the Odyssée chronograph is enhanced by a blend of materials beginning with the brushed steel of its 43 mm case. Studded with ten screws in polished steel, its design relinquishes traditional shapes in favor of the 70's-style decagon. With a black PVD coating in DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) offering an increased resistance to the test of time, the colour and finish of the bezel surface continues along the crown – protected by the case – and the push-pieces, which are grooved for easy grip. To complete this look with a tasteful touch, the bracelet in matte black alligator grain cowhide picks up the sportive spirit of the watch with double red overstitching.
Heir to the French watchmaking expertise tradition, Michel Herbelin has been rooted in the Franche-Comté area of the Jura Mountains since 1947. The Odyssée chronograph was developed, designed, assembled, adjusted and checked within the Michel Herbelin workshops.
