The OD-1 (One) collection draws inspiration from Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey and related science fiction objects. The outstanding design feature of OD-1 is without a doubt the matte black cross bar on its dial. This cross bar intertwines with the open space of a metal plate that it sits on and the rotating discs for time reading. For those in the know, parallels can be drawn between this aspect of OD-1’s design and Kubrick’s Space Station V.
Turn the watch around and you will find your eyes drawn to two things: the specially designed custom gold-plated rotor, visible through the exhibition caseback; and an engraved quote from the father of science fiction.
“Man is never perfect, nor contented.” ~ Jules Verne
These wise words serve as a reminder to the brand’s founders and to the future owners of ORODEUS watches that we should all strive to improve ourselves and the people around us.
The sci-fi theme continues in the watch’s presentation box, which bears a striking illustration by our resident comic artist. The drawing showcases the artist’s alter ego, Captain OD, and his loyal companion, Deus, the intelligent pet robodog as they embark on their space adventures. Join Captain OD and Deus on their odyssey deep into infinity and beyond with ORODEUS!
