About ODE

BASED ON 72 YEARS
OF EXPERIENCE.

Jacob & Elisabeth Stæhr is the third generation of the danish family Stæhr, that has been in the watch business since 1942.

In 2020 Jacob & Elisabeth founded ODE building upon the family's almost 75-year-old experience in watchmaking, sales, and distribution.

With ODE, we create graceful and versatile everyday watches for the present that draws inspiration from the best from our past.

We believe in the power of time. Because the truth of the matter is that as time is passing, we have a choice; to simply watch the minutes tick by or be aware of their meaning.

Because the things we spend our time on shape us into the people that we are.

We create watches for real people, at a price point available to most.

We believe buying a watch should be an easy and secure process and a delightful experience.

We have done our best to simplify that process and making it easy and secure for you:

- We offer fast and free express shipping on all orders.

- We Carbon Offset all shipments. So you can have complete peace of mind about your impact on the environment.

- For our customers outside the EU, we even take care of the import duties.

- If you're not sure if the watch is for you or maybe you are buying it as a gift for someone special, no worries. Order it and try it at home - if it's not for you, we offer 30 day free returns.

Our many years of experience in the world of watches allows us to produce watches of very high quality.

We know what to look for and which components not to use. Our first watch The Statesman is a classical dress watch for men and women, made from a high-grade 316L Stainless Steel cased, strapped with genuine Italian leathers.

At the heart of the watch, our watches are powered by Japanese quartz movements. Depending on the configuration you choose, your watch will either be powered by a Seiko VH31 movement or a Miyota movement. Both movements provide great reliability and accuracy.

We hope you will enjoy our watches as much as we enjoyed making them.
