Oak & Oscar Introduces the Atwood, their Highly Anticipated New Chronograph

For nearly a decade, Chase Fancher and his team at Oak & Oscar, along with their partners, have not only been creating great and sporty timepieces, but they have also been creating a community. To them, the people that purchase their watches are not customers, they are owners. As such, the community has been asking for a new Oak & Oscar chronograph for quite some time. Especially since their Jackson Big-Eye was discontinued. The Jackson, you’ll recall, was a 40mm x 14mm 30-minute chronograph, with flyback function, and it housed a manual wind Eterna Caliber 39 movement.

The community’s prayers have now been answered with the new Oak & Oscar Atwood. Just like its predecessor, it is also a proper Flyback chronograph, but instead of the Eterna caliber 39, it houses an AMT5100M caliber, which is a product of Sellita’s high-end skunkworks AMT division. It is a 23 jeweled, manually wound chronograph with a 58-hour power-reserve, and with the crisp, tactile satisfaction of its blued column wheel you’ll find excuses to time anything.


You will also find all the usual Oak & Oscar refinements, including a sandwich dial, a signature high-contrast extra-long chrono seconds hand, and each subdial features subtle yet bright hints of orange that increase the legibility of the timing function. There is also a subtle nod to their first chronograph, which includes a wrapped tachymeter scale along the rehaut that goes to 54 units. As they like to say, “the design is in the details.” It is available in a classic panda style as well as a reverse-panda charcoal grey and their distinctive navy blue.

The Atwood will be presented on their precision designed bracelet, which features fully articulated links and tapers from 20mm solid end links to 16mm at the clasp, which features on-the-fly adjustment capabilities. It can also be purchased on a handmade Horween leather strap. Measurements are 39mm in diameter and a compact 12.9mm in case height, all the way to the top of the domed sapphire crystal. All Oak & Oscar watches are assembled and tested in Switzerland with final assembly and quality control completed in their Chicago, Illinois headquarters.

The Oak & Oscar Atwood is available to purchase on a steel bracelet for $2,650 or on a handmade Horween leather strap for $2,450. Watches will begin shipping in late summer through early fall of 2024. Oak & Oscar
