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 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.

    Beautiful and perfect

    My husband, Donald, gave me this Olmstead for my birthday. A wonderful watch! I love the orange sweephand. Thank you so much for making this lovely watch. I am a woman and I really love the size so everyone can see it!

    Go Anywhere, Do Anything Watch

    Perfect example of a GADA watch. Understated design and quality construction that really shine on wrist.

    Every time I would wear this watch during the first couple of months of ownership I would notice some slight little detail that made me smile anew. I can say it still does the same 9 months later when it peeks out from under a jacket sleeve or catches light in a certain way.

    Love the bracelet, but beyond that this thing is a strap monster. NATOS, leather, canvas...it looks good on all of them.

    Even better in the flesh

    Super happy with the watch which is my opinion the nicest field-inspired, yet approachable watch for sale right now. I also own a Tudor Ranger (41mm) and although I love the Tudor, I have always felt like it's too much dial for the size watch. This has the perfect case size and I'm loving the sandwich dial. I didn't think that I'd love the bracelet with the white dial but I was surprised, the bracelet is incredibly comfortable and the articulating links are great. The watch wears well.

    I was a little hesitant in the idea of ~$1,500 for a 'micro-brand' but after seeing it I only feel more confident that in the decision to purchase. If you are on the fence, stop overthinking it and just get it...

    On the whole good

    The blue dial is much darker than the website pictures (and the reviews I looked at).

    The tool that came with the watch snapped when depressing the spring bars to change the strap.

    Other than those two things I’m very pleased with the watch

    More beautiful in person than on Youtube or pictures

    This is a very nice, understated but immensely beautiful watch. I am so glad I stumbled upon this brand!
