The OD2 collection continues the Sci-fi theme of Orodeus but this time it goes several leagues under the sea, inspired by Captain Nemo’s adventure. The original inspiration of the case design came from a rare 1970s-vintage watch with a jumping hour feature that we reimagined to be a submersible in our underwater adventure.
The case front profile is asymmetrical, making it unique from many other dive watches, with a strong presence of the screw-down crown at 4 c’clock. Viewing the side profile of the case will reveal a sliding contour that hugs the wrist comfortably. The lack of lugs at the 12 o’clock position also makes the watch very wearable even for small wrists. The finishing of the case is intertwined between the brushed and polished method, giving it a sporty yet refined feel overall.
A 3mm-thick domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating makes the watch stand out better in terms of wrist presence and it brings out more of the dial detailings which include SuperLuminova-filled dot markers and textured fumee dial. Zoom closely on the dial will show caviar-look alike texture that a nickname is given to each colourway. For comfort and that consistent 1970s vibes, custom-designed rubber straps are paired with this collection.
The sci-fi theme also continues in the watch’s presentation box, which bears a striking illustration by our comic artist. The drawing showcases the artist’s alter ego, Captain OD and his crew as they embark on their underwater adventures.
All these elements have put OD2 in line with the retro futuristic genre of the brand DNA.

These wise words are still visible on the caseback 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.
