Boldr Odyssey Freediver GMT: Solid Performer

Boldr has added another Freediver to its range and we are loving their work. The Odyssey Freediver 40 and 45mm models are a nice looking range, with a  great tech spec, but the latest GMT version is even better. Here’s why.

The styling is sharper and has the fashionable two toned bezel, in brown, green or blue options. The dial is graduated, so it gets lighter towards the cannon pinion. The GMT function is also another bonus feature which also has a colour matched (to the ceramic bezel) to help it stand out on the dial. The 44mm case is stainless steel of course, screwdown crown and 300m of water resistance. Inside, you find a Miyota 9075 Calibre movement. Yep, super reliable.

The caseback is clear sapphire, with a Kraken graphic on it for some visual appeal. Miyota movements are functional but nothing special to look upon.

Priced at £801 this is a tool watch, a diver with GMT versatility and Miyota workhorse power. It also competes well with Swiss dive watches at 300m with the Certina DS, Longines HydroConquest Quartz and Tissot Seastar all offering good depth/price combinations.

Indie rivals include Baltic Aquascaphe, Christoper Ward Aquitaine, Enoksen, Yema, Squale, LIV, Geckota, NTH and loads more at £800 and under.
