Last year, ochs & junior gave us the settimana raw, a watch that stripped the novel concept to its bare minimum, featuring a raw titanium case and silver dial. No numerals or even hour markers in sight, just a set of hands within raw material and a straightforward implementation of a very unique day of the week complication. This year, ochs & junior is revisiting this concept with the new settimana raw brass. It’s just as, well, raw, visually but brings a warm contrast to the watch that pairs well with the ‘straight off the CNC machine’ concept of the settimana.
Ochs & junior watches refuse to be glanced over. They almost demand closer scrutiny, whether in their presentation and material, or their wholly unique approach to complications. There is nothing standard about them, and in many cases it takes a bit of curiosity to fully understand and appreciate what you’re looking at. That’s not to say they are difficult to read or use, rather the opposite, but they go against the grain of what we’ve come to expect from most other watches out there.
