PRE-ORDER Railway Edition (w Swiss ETA 6498 Movement)

650.00

We have been working on the design of a Railway Edition timepiece for a year.  Inspired by the Railroad grade pocket watches of the late 1800s and early 1900s our timepiece offers a modern interpretation of the classic Railroad watch. It is simple, clean but elegant in design, reminiscent of Elgin, Waltham, and Hamilton watches of that era. It is powered by a hand-wound mechanical movement, originally developed in the 1950s for use in pocket watches.  While paying tribute to the heritage of Railroad grade timepieces, we upgraded the original designs to create a modern timepiece.

Timepiece will be available in February / March 2019 and retail for $1,000. Pre-order now and save 35%.

CASE

  • 41 mm diameter (not including crown) 316L surgical grade stainless steel:

    • Three piece construction; top and bottom bezels mirror-polished; middle section is linear brushed

    • ~ 12 mm height

    • 48 mm lug to lug

    • 20 mm lugs

  • Domed sapphire crystal on front with Anti-Reflective coating and flat sapphire crystal on the back

  • 8 mm waterproof pull-out crown with OWC logo

  • Water-resistant to 5 ATM

  • Stainless steel or gold-plated stainless steel. One design will have a gold-plated bezel and crown over a stainless steel base.

MOVEMENT

The hand-wound movement is the most original of all watch movements. We chose to build a manual-wind timepiece, because winding the crown of our watch directly connects you to more than 400 years of watchmaking craftsmanship. The process of hand winding the mainspring that sets the watch in motion is an authentic ritual, directly bonding you to the engineering marvel of tiny precision parts working together to tell time. Two movement types will be offered:

  • Hand-wound (manual) mechanical Swiss ETA 6498 caliber

  • Rhodium finish; Geneva stripes decoration with blued screws

  • 17 jewels, 21,600 beats/hour, approximately 40 hour power reserve (after full winding), shock protection

  • Factory specifications +/- 30 seconds per day; however, we calibrate the movement to within +/- 12 seconds per day

DIAL / HANDS

  • ~ 36 mm enamel (porcelain) with several designs: double sunk, double sunk with red 12 and the red 12 numeral

  • Blued hour, minute and seconds hands

  • Sunken-in sub-dial at 6 o'clock, with sweep style seconds hand

STRAP

Our watch straps are crafted out of thick premium calf leather with crocodile prints.  We wanted to create an integrated fit between the case and the band, so we chose to design straps with curved ends, reducing the empty space between the band and the case.  Each strap is equipped with curved spring bars that attach it close to the body of the case for a polished, fitted look.

  • 20 x 18 mm vintage calf leather with curve ends for integrated look and fit; 120 by 75 mm length

  • Thread stitching throughout

  • One sewn in and one floating keeper

  • FOR THOSE WHO PRE-ORDER WE ARE WORKING ON A STRAP WITH A CLASP BUCKLE

  • Polished thumbnail buckle with Origin Watch Co. logo embossed
