Pre-order the Oak & Oscar “Jackson” Watch
Oak & Oscar, the company behind limited-edition watches such as the Burnham and the Sanford — we’ve written about them here and here, respectively — have unveiled another addition to the lineup: the Jackson.
The Jackson is a 40mm, hand-wound, column wheel, flyback chronograph inspired by Chicago’s Jackson Park — one of my favorite areas to visit in the Windy City — and is Oak & Oscar’s most complicated (heh) watch to date. It has a stacked chronograph counter at three o’clock, with a dark grey hand on the outer track that tracks elapsed minutes and a smaller white hand on the inner track that counts the hours. Over at nine o’clock, a separate counter displays the seconds. Down at 6 o’clock is a color-matched date wheel with custom font.
Turn the watch over, and you’ll be treated to a view of the watch’s inner components through the sapphire display back, including the column wheel, some custom engravings, and a Côtes de Genève finish on some of the bridges. The whole thing is water-resistant to 5 ATMs (50 meters).
The Jackson will be released sometime during Q1 2018. It will come in three variations, all of which are available for pre-order prices:
- Grey — $2,650 (down from $2,850)
- Navy Blue — $2,650 (down from $2,850)
- Charcoal PVD — $2,850 (down from $3,150)
As with all Oak & Oscar watches, every Jackson will include two Horween leather straps (one of which sports a custom-made orange color) and a modular, Horween-and-Tasman leather watch wallet with detachable suede pouches and a strap tool.
