Quite possibly the most welcome item presentations of the most recent year concerned the arrival of Ollech & Wajs. The P-101 and P-104 were elegant vintage propelled pilot watches from a brand with genuine legacy. Not at all like a ton of commercial watch marks that end up providing watches to the military when called upon on an agreement premise, Ollech & Wajs essential target was to supply to the military. Their watches are reason worked to military specs, and vintage models are valued by gatherers for their exceptional provenance. Presently, they’re back with a plunge watch that has a similar vintage roots, but at the same time is a genuine instrument. Let’s investigate.

The OW C-1000 is a refreshed interpretation of quite possibly the most sought after jumpers of the 1960s, the Jenny Carribean. For a while, Ollech & Wajs collaborated with Jenny to deliver the Ollech & Wajs Caribbean 1000, a 1000 meter jumper that appeared in 1964 and was quickly embraced by the expert jumpers at Global Marine Incorporated, and was utilized by plunging world record holders Alberto Novelli and Cesare Olgjai, among others.
The new watch from Ollech & Wajs takes a large number of the vital ascribes of the first and encompasses them with present day materials to make a commendable every day wear in 2019. The most outstanding dial highlights are likely the huge three-sided hour markers at 12:00, 3:00, and 9:00, and the discretionary globules of rice style wristband contributes enormously to the vintage look. The arm band is fabricated for comfort, yet sturdiness also. Each connection is separately machined from a strong square of 316L steel, and afterward brushed and collected by hand. Ollech & Wajs discloses to us this will forestall the extending that’s so common to wristbands of this sort, especially after 50+ long stretches of wear and abuse.
The C-1000 is a 1000 meter jumper, which is maybe a large number of meters more than by far most of individuals will at any point need. All things considered, the making of a watch with specs like this gives Ollech & Wajs with a chance to intentionally over-engineer the thing, the outcome being a watch that will experience no difficulty confronting the monotonous routine of life. The screw down crown utilizes fourfold gaskets to keep it watertight, and the sapphire gem is domed and extra solid to withstand extra pressure.
Modern tech is, obviously, not out of the ordinary in this sort of vintage roused discharge. A significant part of the allure, I envision, for the C-1000 will come down to whether you appreciate the case shape. It has a skin jumper like stylish, with profoundly precise drags, and a slight pivoting timing bezel. At simply a hair under 40mm, this watch will look directly on most wrists, with the generally brushed complete the process of assisting with keeping it wearing little, and under the radar.
The OW C-1000 is accessible now on the Ollech & Wajs site, and can be had on the previously mentioned globules of rice wristband, or a nylon tie. Ollech & Wajs
