The Olmsted ExP-01
The Olmsted ExP-01 is the first release of this series. These coppery-bronze colored watches are absolutely beautiful—especially paired with our dark green, no date dial.
The different surface colors, all due to a chemical reaction, are a reminder of just how cool discovering new techniques can be. They aren't perfect, and that's not the point of the series, but dang it they're just so cool we had to share them!
We added a fancy new kiln to the shop (it gets up to 2,000° F!!) and got a chance to engage the creative side of our brains for a bit. We mixed some science, traditional watchmaking skills, and fun all into this super cool new watch.
Similar to our Matte Series, this is a limited production watch. We’ll make more one day; however, not exactly the same and likely an entirely different experiment. But therein lies the point: we’ll keep experimenting and it’ll be fun — that you can be sure of.
The Olmsted ExP-01 is only available in-person at Windup Watch Fair Chicago 2023
