As you know, Elysium Magazine loves a discerning timepiece, there is a vast variety of watches out there; all unique and desirable. Sometimes the discerning gent needs a watch that is less formal and stands out. In the search of a unique yet informal timepiece we were directed to Michael Young’s design – the ODM Hacker.
In a career that spans little more than 18 years, British-born and Hong Kong based designer Michael Young established himself from the very beginning as one of the world’s leading figures in his trade, proven by his endlessly copied designs and its unparalleled power to generate a vibrant but relaxed atmosphere, combined with the pioneering passion for technology.
Michael has brought this experience and passion to the table for his latest work with o.d.m with the MY03 collection. Designed to let you keep on running about in the city and for all occasions. Michael The collection is inspired by many of the precision engineering projects his studio has been involved with in Hong Kong. The appearance is based on the application of visual ergonomics, using bold lines that lead the eyes pleasantly and allowing the time to be read at a glance. Meanwhile, the metal disc in the centre offers strong protection for daily use, so it’s durable yet classical in style. MY03 Extension has three members in total. Stainless steel case in IP black with black strap in creamy white and mat brown dial respectively; also offer stainless steel case in IP gold with brown strap and dial.
One things for certain, the timepiece certainly is a great talking point – it certainly draws attention. The distinct design is what captured our eye and whilst we would replace our Breitling, it certainly one to wear for the evenings and weekends.
