1 review for Odysseus – LSU National Champions

  1. David L.

    As a watch enthusiast and an avid LSU fan who embraced our 2019 National Championship season, I was naturally drawn to John Kanara’s Axia Watches. A Google search will reveal a multitude of LSU watches and even some National Championship watches, but Axiaw Watches elevates it to the next level. In honor of LSU’s 2019 National Championship season, Axia Watches created two custom limited edition watches in their Odysseus and Pathos lines. Both timepieces are custom engraved with your limited edition number out of 726, the total number of points scored during the historic season.

    Packaging.
    My Odysseus arrived in an Axia branded box. Inside several layers of bubble wrap was a black rectangular leather zippered case also embossed with the Axia name and logo. Opening the case revealed a velour lined interior with a cutout for your watch. In the top portion of the case is a small pocket where the purple and gold NATO strap was placed along with my official warranty card noting the limited edition number of my timepiece.

    Bracelet.
    Along with a beautiful purple gold NATO style strap, my Odysseus was shipped with an installed oyster style stainless steel bracelet. The center links are polished while the edge links are a brushed silver to match the case. The end links are solid and cut precisely to the curve of the case. Although without drilled lugs, quick release pins are an excellent touch and will make band swapping a breeze. While the butterfly clasp is secure and provides the seamless look of a dress watch, I prefer the traditional double locking fold over clasp. I can close the bracelet with one motion instead of two with a butterfly clasp. I am also fond of fold over clasps for its microadjustment pin holes which butterfly clasp bracelets often lack. With an endless variety of 20mm width bands and bracelets, finding your favorite is a very personal choice. Even though I’m not a proponent of butterfly clasps, I found this one wears comfortably on my wrist after removing a few links.

    Case & Movement.
    With a case diameter of 43.5mm, lug to lug 51.5mm and a thickness of 12.8mm, the Odysseus especially with the steel bracelet will not be your lightest watch, but you will be proudly reminded that you have it on your wrist. The movement is housed in a brushed stainless steel case with a 3 o’clock date display. Utilizing the reliable Swiss made Sellita SW400 movement, the screw down crown is also at the 3 position. The movement provides hacking and a sweeping second hand with a timing tolerance of +/- 15s per day. With hand winding and a 38 hour power reserve, this automatic timepiece with it’s 200 meter rated water resistance should provide many years of reliable service. I have a fondness for crown guards but it can be overlooked for the boldly engraved Axia logo branded crown.

    Caseback.
    An underrated feature that I love on my Odysseus is the clear display caseback. Any watch enthusiast will revel at the fascinating intricate movements of an automatic mechanical timepiece. I am no exception. An added touch is the use of a sapphire crystal as the clear caseback ensuring that the glass will never scratch. Along the edge of the caseback are engravings including but not limited to your selected limited edition number out of 726. An additional request for a short personalized engraving may also be granted as mine is also engraved TML to DCL as a memento of my wife’s anniversary gift to me.

    Bezel.
    Other than the dial face, the most striking feature of the Odysseus is the uni-directional rotating bezel. It is a 60 click bezel with a beautiful brushed colored aluminum bezel insert. The muted non-reflective purple colored insert with the contrasting numbers in white commands your attention as you admire the face. The inverted triangle 12 position marker has within it, a raised pip that is also luminescent. Another one of my favorite features of the Odysseus is its lume. Coated with Super Luminova luminescence are the bezel numbering, the circular hourly indices, hour hand, minute hand and second hand. Together, they create a beautiful. impressive glowing display in the dark!

    Face.
    The star of every timepiece is the dial face and the Odysseus does not disappoint. Its striking white matte finish is surrounded by 11 raised circular indices with a date window at the 3 o’clock position. It’s protected by a gorgeous anti-reflective sapphire crystal whose polished edge sits perfectly flush against the rotating bezel. Watch hands are another underrated component but I noticed the extended second hand pointer as it elegantly sweeps around the face pointing to every marker on the chapter ring. The signature purple LSU logo is placed beneath the 12 and printed on the opposite end is the phrase, 2019 National Champions. The O of National and Champions are replaced by a gold colored football. Nicely done, Axia Time. Also impressive is the unique chapter ring of the Odysseus. The letters B A Y O U B E N G A L S are placed at each hourly index! Again, nicely done, Axia Time. My only wish would’ve been if the letters of Bayou Bengals were also coated with lume. I can only imagine how amazing that would look in the dark!

    If you’re an avid LSU fan who’s looking for yet another way to memorialize our magical 2019 season, look no further than this timepiece. I have no regrets investing in this priceless memorabilia. If only to have a timepiece on my wrist to remind me of the wonderful year that I will never forget. Geaux Tigers!
