HIThe latest model llech & Wajs, Ocean Graph, comes in stainless steel containers that are stamped, worked and brushed in the Jura region of Switzerland and with 90% of the total parts coming from Switzerland.
With the C19 virus disrupting the sourcing of parts from Asia to Switzerland, there is a possibility that more companies will market their products because Switzerland will increase the use of components sourced from Switzerland. Only 60% of the total value of Swiss watches must be made in Switzerland, which is a point of dispute for any brand that does most or all of their production in Switzerland.
That Ollech & Waj has a high percentage that needs to be considered given that a brand that is far more expensive uses more non-Swiss parts – significantly cuts costs – and often takes a higher profit than giving it to the end consumer.
The new OW Ocean Graph comes in 39.56 mm X 15.8 mm stainless steel casing measuring 49.5 mm bring-for-lug and has an interlug width of 20 mm. This model maintains the same dimensions as OW C-1000 which was introduced last year. In fact, the hands and indexes that are too large are the same. The dial has a new bright blue color and a orange lume color.
Caseback with solid screws, locking crown and 1,000 meters waterproof rating is also left. As well as a high waterproof rating which is ensured by reinforced caseback, double case, 5.6 mm thick, extra strong, domed sapphire crystal, and special screw-down crown with four gaskets.
However, what has changed is the bezel, which displays the decompression scale for this model. According to Ollech & Wajs, “The new OW Oceangraph decompression frame has three concentric zones. The most central zone shows the dive time that has passed, from 0 to 60 minutes (A). It also contains an indication for the maximum depth of diving, carried out in meters (B). In the middle zone the dive time (C) is required for decompression, according to the depth indicated in the most central zone (B). The outer zone of the bezel shows the decompression time, in minutes (D), that the diver must respect at a depth of three meters, calculated according to depth (B) and total dive duration (A). “
OW Ocean Graph is a tribute to the 1968 Ollech & Wajs Ocean-Graph and is powered by 25-jewel 4Hz automatic ETA 2824-2 adjusted in five positions with 38 hours power backup. Its movements are modified by carving main plate marked “Ollech & Wajs Zurich 1956” and OW rotor.
Each watch is assembled to order with an estimated delivery time of three weeks from the date of order. 56 The first Marine Charts sold will be numbered on the crown. The retail price is $ 1,618 for a single striped Slovenian blue and white perlon rope and $ 1,763 for a stainless steel rice bracelet. (Ref. OW Ocean Graph)
