Meetup Recap: Making Time in DC with Worn & Wound Readers and the Oris Airstream

Here at Worn & Wound, we talk a lot about a concept we refer to as “curated approachability.” This is the concept that we can celebrate our enthusiasm for products, especially watches, in a way that is both elevated, yet accessible. It’s a fine line to walk and few brands can do that better than Oris.

So we were thrilled when the Oris team approached us about doing a meetup-style event with them somewhere a bit off the beaten path. We knew the Washington DC area was a spot where we not only had a strong crop of Worn & Wound readers, but it was a place where we were bound to have a great time.

On Sunday, September 10th—at a stellar indoor/outdoor venue called Hook Hall—we squeezed the always-impressive Oris Airstream in and joined the Oris team along with dozens upon dozens of watch enthusiasts. Together we broke bread… er sliders, made new friends, and examined the full range of Oris’ new offerings.

Some highlights on display from the Oris collection included the all-new 40mm Limited Edition Big Crown Pilot celebrating the life and humanitarian work of baseball hall-of-famer Hank Aaron. Guests were also treated to the striking Aquis Hölstein Edition 2023, which sports a striking purple dial that you can’t take your eyes off. To top it off, guests could try on the full array of their ever-popular “Cotton Candy” Divers Sixty-Fives in both steel and bronze.

The biggest takeaway from this event is that the DC Area is full of enthusiasts who collect watches that matter. They matter in their professional lives. They matter from a provenance point of view. And most importantly, they matter as a way to create and connect with a community. Thank you so much who all that came. Thanks to VJ Geronimo, CEO-The Americas at Oris, and Josh Shanks, Marketing at Oris, and the rest of the Oris team for making it such a great time. We can’t wait to head back to D.C. for more meetups in the future!
