On Thursday, June 9th, 6:30 – 9:30pm in NYC, Chase Fancher, founder of Oak and Oscar, will sit down with Tyler Strand, Director of Product Management for Postlight, an NYC-based app development company, to discuss what goes into successfully building and shipping a top quality product.
Regular readers of worn&wound will be familiar with Oak & Oskar, which released its first watch, the Burnham, in mid-2015. For the uninitiated, the Burnham is a military-style watch defined by quality and craftsmanship. In developing the watch, Chase worked with suppliers and manufacturers from around the world, several of which are based in the US, including WoodnSteel (Indiana), Crown&Buckle (Florida), Lum-Tec (Ohio) and Defy MFG Co. (Chicago). The Burnham is now sold out (I guess it was a success) and Chase is hard at work on his next piece.
