Lange Odysseus...finally had the opportunity to see it in the flesh.

I won’t attempt to write a soliloquy since many have written about this piece. I will be brief and succinct. This piece looks better in person than in photos! I liked the feel on the wrist, the hue of the blue dial and the legibility of the day and date. I don’t like the bracelet as many have shared. The AD was well aware of the commentary around the bracelet and did their best to explain. All that said, I like the piece, but not enough to purchase it. It just doesn’t “move” me.
I did! And it’s interesting that you asked about the pusher because...the pusher here (see photo) is a most welcomed feature! Having the additional pusher on the new Zeitwerk makes setting the time MUCH easier! Loved this piece, but I have the original.
Not really! It is almost 3mm long that. The original Zeitwerk, but it’s a tad thinner. The size difference is negligible and since I have the original it’s barely noticeable. However, I had it on for a matter of minutes, which must be considered. [nt]
is put a center seconds sweep hand on. A sports watch needs better seconds legibility and timing. The subsidiary seconds dial is more for a dress watch. I would have deleted the day display entirely and simply put the big date window at say 6 as 3 is so typical and quite boring on the other brands. I have no issues with the bracelet if it molds to the wrist and is precisely adjustable to fit odd wrist sizes which I seem to have. Finally, blue dials are the current fad but in my view way overdone. A second concurrent dial color offering here with a neutral dial would have been nice.
