My 2c, love the dial (rare for me with ALS) but dislike the bezel. I'd prefer a brushed, not polished look but am likely in the minority.

My girlfriend got me an interesting watch for Christmas. It’s made from reclaimed whiskey barrels and a miyota quartz movement. 47mm but wears a little smaller.

I really love that the bracelet is wood! That has to be a unique wearing experience. 

Wish I could get my wife to let me open my presents early..

Mine has wooden inserts on the bracelet, but it’s coated stainless. It is definitely an interesting look for a watch.

I’d rather have waited until Christmas but she’s going to visit her family in Illinois and I have my kids here in Tn.

About the ALS Odysseus, I don’t normally like bracelets because although I get a perfect fit when my wrist is warm, when it’s not the fit is loose which I don’t like, the bracelet length on the Odysseus though is adjustable on the wrist.

I think the look of the Odysseus is ok, but I’d prefer it with a large seconds handle.

What i normally do to combat this is size the watch at 70f to the middle of the micro adjust that way when It gets cold i can pull it in and if it is warm i can put it out.

Although there have been times in the tropics that between heat and humidity I ran out of adjustment and actually switched to a different watch for the rest of the day.

My present from the wife with her present from me in the background. 

She got hers a few weeks early as at ~850lbs and it's giant size I wasn't installing the pro 48 myself.

Nice, the Tuna is MIA. Will get money back from insurance, but it still sucks ass.

Any thoughts here on the new ALS Odysseus sports watch.

I seemed to have missed quite a few responses on the thread so apologies for the late input, Dave.

I'm not feeling it....this watch is not harmonious IMO.  It's awkward.

I agree Sam, in fact the more I look the more I dislike it. The only thing I do like is it’s in stainless steel, but that’s about it.

Well, the rabbit hole opened. I bought one of these https://gamages.london/watch/limited-edition-moon-phase-automatic/?attribute_pa_color=rose&variation_id=2510

But I bought it brand new, boxed and 5 year guaranteed from an auction house for £95 (plus 20% seller premium plus 20% VAT for £138). Still a helluva bargain for a mechanical watch. Bit of a beast though at 43mm diameter and 15mm thick.

My days, in social isolation, are spent listening to podcasts while I go about exercise, cooking, and fussing with cats.  I haven't put on a non-Apple watch in weeks. I miss my real ones, but it's so nice being able to control a Podcast from my wrist.

If the bracelet were 2mm thinner, I think it would look a lot better.
