Release: A. LANGE & SÖHNE ODYSSEUS Now In White Gold On A Strap

With the introduction of the Odysseus last year as Lange entered into the luxury sports watch arena, there was much anticipation regarding what the brand might do next.  For 2020, Lange introduces a white gold version of the Odysseus with a grey dial on either leather or rubber strap.

To differentiate between the different models besides the obvious dial colors, you can also see that Lange changed the dial patterns.  The center of the dial is not as pronounced grain but a more smoothed grained tone.  Instead of a circular rings that go from the center to the edge of the case, it is now a radial pattern.  Of course, the day and date wheel color matches the dial as expected.    

The leather strap it comes with is nice but not much difference compared with other Lange leather straps.  The rubber strap is where things get interesting as you can see the raised areas on the underside to allow ventilation when wearing the watch.  
The new white gold model is fitted with the same automatic L155.1 movement as the steel variant.  Instead of a balance cockBalance Cock The balance cock holds the balance spring (or hairspring) in place and allows it to be adjusted. The balance cock is attached to the main plate of the movement and sits above the balance wheel. It serves as the base for the hairspring and the mechanism that allows regulating the timekeeping of the watch.

It serves as a key support for the balance wheel.

They are attached to the main plate of the movement with screws. Bridges are used to support the balance wheel, the escapement, the mainspring barrel and other elements. Combined with the main plate they are the foundation of any watch movement.
