Olmsted 38 in White Dial with Leather Strap
I love the design of this watch! It exudes a modern and a vintage vibe at the same time. At 38mm it is very wearable, and the lug shape and the not overly thick case, work together to provide a comfortable fit. The finish of the 316 stainless steel case is exquisite. The design of the cutout stenciled numbers is beautiful. The face is extremely matte, and because of this, it reflects no light, which gives the watch a depth, and some mystery, because you can't see what it is made of, it is so matte. I find that aspect very interesting. The date window integrates well with the face design, as to the logos. The second hand is the standout, both in color orange and with the interesting shapes at each end of the hand. It is fun to watch them move around the dial. The screw down crown works seamlessly, and the winder has a high quality feel. The strap is also very high quality. The only thing I would consider doing differently, is to have a more standard taper on the band, from 20mm to 16mm rather than to 18mm. I find the buckle just a bit chunky for the size of the watch and my wrist. Otherwise, the Olmsted is pure perfection, and exists comfortably among my modern and vintage Rolexes and other vintage pieces. I can't seem to take it off.
