Finally a Part of the Owners’ Club @ Oak & Oscar!

Hey all! My first official post here, and I thought what better way to kick it off than with a NWA!! Story and initial thoughts below. Looking forward to meeting new friends and enthusiasts on here. 

Longtime fan of O&O and first time purchaser here. The design of these pieces are so great in my opinion. The sandwich dials, high quality finish, and unique execution just called out to me.  Recently I was able to pull the trigger on this White dial Humboldt GMT after a lot of thought it just felt like the perfect introduction to the brand. 

I had some back and forth with Chase & Andrew to make sure that the bracelet would fit my larger wrists and even hopped on a virtual appointment with Andrew to decide on color (was badly between black and white). Needless to say, I felt like an owner before I even made the purchase and that’s means a lot to me! 

Fast forward to today, I get the watch and am instantly in love. The colors are great. The fit and finish are lovely. The fully brushed case and bracelet are sweet and give this thing the perfect adventure watch vibe and it just feels like it’s meant/ready to be used!  A big feature that pulled me in on this guy is the anti-shock AND anti-mag properties. Who doesn’t love that!?! The bezel is slick and very well done just like the clasp with that tool less micro adjust. 

The packaging is superb too. Literally a 2 watch wallet made of beautiful leather and textiles made right here in the USA (hell yes, I’m super happy and proud to support as many local shops and artisans as possible)! 

 

Initial thoughts, If you’re on the fence with the brand, just do it friends. These things don’t disappoint and the customer service/owner family you get to join once you snag one is what makes this hobby so special. Job well done to Chase and his team. Can’t wait to see what memories are ahead for me with this watch! 

Cheers WatchFam! Time for a pour of some bourbon in honor of my new adventure piece!

Thank you!

Welcome! This was the first microbrand I learned about, back in 2015.

Welcome and congrats on a great looking new watch! I've been intrigued by the brand for a while now too, but hoping I can check one out in person at a meetup/watch fair soon.

Funny, I just bought that same watch last week but got it slightly used on reddit. It is totally a bargain for what you get. I have Tudor and Bremont and this is an equal at less than half the price. I'm sorry I waited so long to join the club and really, really sorry I passed up one of their Batch No 1 back in 2018.

Congrats! I saw the listings for them too late lol but I’m glad I was able to work with them directly too. I feel like I gained two new friends in both of them instantly. Their small batch watches are so sweet and I can’t wait to see what they come out with next. I hope you wear yours in good health man and I’ll have to watch out for you on WatchEx! Feel free to hit me up at u/JLWatches :) cheers man!
