BOLDR Odyssey Automatic Dive Watch

In 2016, BOLDR, the micro watch brand from Singapore and Malaysia launched a best-selling range of aviator inspired mecha-quartz watches - which are now available in select retail outlets in San Francisco, Paris and Singapore. This year, alongside a redefined logo and brand, BOLDR presents their boldest design to date.
The young brand’s latest creation Odyssey automatic dive watch brings BOLDR’s iconic modern styling back with a new original design, in the form of a stylish automatic dive watch that you can actually dive with. To fund the initial mass production of this series, BOLDR launched a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter on April 17th, this year.
Geared for the stylish, the BOLDR Odyssey is an automatic dive watch with a unique angled design on the case and lugs, a sapphire glass dome lens, and Superlume index markers – some of the most requested features from their previous watch campaign. Functional and fashionable with a dive-functional 120-click unidirectional bezel, and Anti-Reflective coating on the double domed lens, the Odyssey is the perfect tool for diving or daily leisure.
Enveloped in a sturdy, stainless steel case, the Odyssey can ride rough with an ultra tough 6-screw caseback, rated for up to 500m water resistance, and a screw-down crown with triple lock mechanism. A resilient automatic movement by Seiko and special helium escape valve also makes sure the watch stays strong under any pressure, both in and out of the water.
Each BOLDR Odyssey comes with a choice of a durable polyurethane strap or a top-grain stylish Italian leather strap with a waterproof coating. A limited edition caseback, custom designed by Melbourne artist Ashwin Royan, and serialized numbers on the case mean each BOLDR Odyssey is unique and part of a limited production run, exclusive to BOLDR Supply Co.
The BOLDR Odyssey comes in three, stylish colour combinations - the Steel Blue comes with a navy blue dial, white Superlume index markers, in a stainless steel case and bezel. The White Storm comes in a white dial, white Superlume index markers, with a stainless steel case and gunmetal bezel. The Ever Black comes with a black dial, white Superlume index markers with a all-black stainless steel case and bezel.
The Ever Black and White Storm models come with Diamond-Like Carbon Coating (DLC) on the case, which provides diamond-like-hardness and resistance to corrosion - making the watch extra durable and long-lasting.
The BOLDR Odyssey campaign was launched on Kickstarter on April 17th, 2017, and is expected to ship by October 2017. It retails at USD $359, but is currently available for a limited time on Kickstarter for the early bird price of USD $259 upwards.
