Filippo Loreti’s Odyssey Watch Gives You Luxury Without the Markup

It sucks when you have to choose between quality and price. Of course, a $10 phone isn’t the same as the latest iPhone, but maybe there are times you don’t have to choose. That local pizza joint that sells $1 slices might be just as delicious as the big chains. And overpriced coffee may taste the same as the day-old cup of joe you brew with your Mr. Coffee. When it comes to timepieces, you may be looking for something that looks and feels good, but think that means sacrificing a good chunk of change. Well, Filippo Loreti is changing it up. 

The company was founded with an ambitious goal to offer quality designer pieces without the markup. They offer $1000 luxury watches for less than $200, so you don’t have to sacrifice quality or price. Filippo Loreti started in 2015 with a crowdfunding campaign and soon rose to production with the help of more than 30k backers. Every piece in their collection is inspired by icons of the Roman Empire and also reflects the art, history, and culture of Italy.

Luxury watch for a fraction of the cost

The Odyssey Two Tone Gold Blue Link watch is a bestseller from Filippo Loreti’s Odyssey collection. The watch has a 316L stainless steel case for extreme durability, a 42mm case, and Japanese Seiko VD54 Movement for precise and accurate time. The primarily blue face and dial really makes you stand out, but the grainy texture of the matte dial keeps it slightly subdued as well. Gold and white elements in the hands and markers add a tinge of luxury without being too flashy.

The chronograph watch has a pusher at 2 o’clock to start/ stop the chronograph and one a 4 o’clock to reset. It is water-resistant to up to 100 meters (10ATM). Quickly secure and release the watch within seconds with the deployment side clasp. The Odyssey Collection also includes an industry-leading, international 10-year warranty. Buy Here
