The Olmsted 38 is a classic, automatic winding, 38mm field watch with a two-layer sandwich dial, 10 ATM (100m / 330ft), screw-down crown, and inner minute track with orange cardinal numeral accents.

The Olmsted 38 takes its namesake from conservationist and founder of landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted – an avid believer in the need of natural public space in society. Olmsted is responsible for designing many of the public parks in the United States; notably, Central Park in New York City, and Jackson Park in Chicago. Throughout a fascinating life, Olmsted pushed for the protection of Yosemite Valley, created the parkway, the integrated park system, and founded the precursor to the Red Cross.

The engine powering The Olmsted 38 is the legendary, Swiss-made, ETA 2892A2, a workhorse calibre with 21 jewels, a substantial 42-hour power reserve, and our iconic 4-star rotor design – a subtle nod to our hometown of Chicago.

Everything I Expected

I’ve had this watch for a few weeks now and am appreciating all the details and thought that was put into designing this time piece. I’m naturally drawn to things that aren’t too flashy, yet are incredibly detailed and nuanced - Like whatever it is knows it is well-designed and well made without having to flaunt it with a shinier or more intricate face or case. The Olmsted is exactly that, which is why I got it. If I were to not-pick, it would be that the lume is quite lacking, and if only Oak & Oscar made these anti-magnetic!

Absolutely incredible

I bought this watch for my husband as a graduation present and he loves it! Chase and the team were extremely helpful in helping me pick it out, they even included a handwritten note to mark to occasion. Here is what my husband thinks of the piece:

"The Olmstead is absolutely incredible. It sits perfectly on your wrist, you hardly notice it's there. It is extremely versatile--I would definitely recommend getting the steel bracelet to dress it up, but it also looks great with a business casual leather strap. My favorite might be the green nylon strap, though. The mechanics are extremely accurate, I wore it for about 2 months straight before it was off by a minute. I could not recommend the Oak & Oscar Olmstead or working with the team more!"

Great experience from start to finish!

Having had my eye on the Olmsted since it’s release it has been a pleasure to deal with Chase, helping me solve questions I had and helping me to get it safely across the Atlantic! Since it arrived last week it’s been my working from home partner, sleek and comfortable on the orange nato, perfect for the current UK heatwave. Also love the wallet it comes in, great idea instead of the usual watch box! Thoroughly recommended!

Perfect Everyday Watch

The Olmsted has a perfect look; nothing too shouty, nothing too boring. The numerals are large and legible and "O" counterweight on the second hand is the perfect amount of flair. I have the white dial and it looks good on EVERY strap I've tried it on. Right now I have it on a simple gray NATO and it it's a perfect utility piece.
