SOLD OUT - Jackson Big Eye

SOLD OUT - Jackson Big Eye

Whoa. 

That might be a new record for us. We sold all 50 of the Jackson Big Eyes by 10:09am central time. That's just nine minutes after the public launch. 

A huge thank you to everyone for the amazing support and interest in what we're doing here at Oak & Oscar. The Jackson Big Eye is a special watch to me for various reasons and is even more so now! 

I've especially enjoyed and appreciated all the great emails, texts and DMs from folks. The #watchfam is amazing! 

Also a huge a thank you to everyone who covered the launch. Below you'll find a list of links and my favorite quotes: 

 

Worn & Wound Reviews Oak & Oscar Jackson Big Eye

"All this is dressed in the very American classic Oak & Oscar design language that is direct, practical, and not without a surprise or two to be discovered."

"This is a very handsome watch that only reveals more little details to enjoy the closer you look."

"Like all of Oak & Oscar’s creations, the Jackson Big Eye is meticulously detailed, made in limited supply, and more than ready for everyday wear."

"...the Big Eye layout is perhaps even more casual and sporty than the original Jackson..."

 "...the Jackson Big Eye is a strong example of Oak & Oscar’s core competency for balanced design, fine details, and thoughtful packaging..."

"As a follow-up to the successful Jackson, Oak & Oscar’s Big Eye iteration looks great, and packs an entirely useful and enthusiast-spec chronograph function..."

 

Fratello Reviews the Oak & Oscar Jackson Big Eye

"Here’s a nice surprise that won’t last long. The Oak & Oscar Jackson Big Eye Chronograph brings back a popular model from the Chicago-based brand with some thoughtful tweaks."

"I really like what Chase and his small team have done at Oak & Oscar. The result of his overall work is a brand with a tight following that brings well-thought-out releases with the right frequency. The Jackson Big Eye Chronograph looks great and reminds us that in the watch world, small changes can make a big difference."

"...I’m guessing that these 50 pieces won’t last long at all." 

 

Michael Stockton was right about that last one....!!!

Thanks again to everyone out there. You guys are amazing. Now, it's time to finish assembly and get them shipped out!! First batch will start going out tomorrow. Woohoo!!!

Introducing, the Jackson Big Eye!

Introducing, the Jackson Big Eye!

Asymmetrical in all the right ways

Introducing the Jackson Big Eye

We're excited to announce the release of the latest edition to our collection, the Jackson Big Eye.

The Jackson Big Eye is a classically quirky chronograph driven by the beautiful and manually wound, Swiss-made EMC 3907M with a 60 hour power reserve, column wheel, flyback reset and a stacked register at 3 o'clock that tracks both minutes and hours. The Jackson Big Eye is limited to only 50 pieces and is our first publicly available chronograph without a date.

The charm of a Big Eye chronograph can’t be ignored. The asymmetrical design harkens back to funky dialed chronographs of the 1960’s and ’70’s. The type of watch often worn by racing drivers as they tore around the track in cars with big engines, small brakes, and a motley crew of friends waiting in the pit lane—fresh fuel and new tires for the car and a beverage for the driver (which wasn’t always water).

The design of our Big Eye is striking—its orange accents around the minute track and charming asymmetrical face make this limited edition timepiece unique. Typically, “big-eye” chronographs either sacrifice the hour counter or they crowd the dial. With the stacked registers of the EMC 3907M movement, you don’t lose any functionality—in fact, the increased size of the hands on the 3 o’clock subdial makes them easier than ever to read. The vintage charm and simplicity of two subdials without the clutter and busyness of three subdials. We’ve even removed the date for a cleaner, more focused design.

With a 60-hour power reserve, ability to track minutes and hours on a single subdial and a column wheel actuation with a flyback reset, the Swiss-made EMC 3907M that powers the Jackson Big Eye is a technologically advanced movement that blends both engineering genius and art. The lucky Owners of this timepiece can witness the complexity and beauty of this movement through the sapphire display back.

Each watch is hand-assembled, tested and regulated at our Chicago headquarters by our head in-house watchmaker and Director of Watchmaking, Nathan.
