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 either Selitta SW300 or the ETA 2892A2, both legendary, Swiss-made, solid workhorse movements customized with our iconic 4-star rotor design – a subtle nod to our hometown of Chicago.

We’re proud of our Horween leather straps and the craftsmanship that goes into them. From the hand-beveled edges with applied water-based dye to the hidden orange stitching on the floating keeper, our leather strap tapers from 20mm to 18mm at the buckle for a comfortable fit.

Our stainless steel bracelet sits comfortably on the wrist with a fully articulated link design that gradually tapers from the 20mm solid end links to the 16mm buckle.

The bracelet has 7 removable links and 5 micro-adjustments on the locking clasp. The bracelet will fit wrists from 6.2 inches to 9.1 inches (158mm - 231mm).

    Great watch

    I have had the watch for a couple of months now and really enjoy it. Great customer service. Great packaging and presentation. Great watch. This was my first purchase from Oak and Oscar and most likely won’t be my last.

    Great Watch

    A fantastic watch so far! I purchased the Olmsted 38 Navy Dial about a month ago after an in-person appointment with Andrew at the OO HQ. First, it was an exceptional experience meeting Andrew and Nathan and talking about the Olmsted 38 and the other OO watches. It was a welcoming environment and an experience I recommend if you are in the Chicagoland area and considering an OO watch. I find the Olmsted wears very comfortable on my wrist and has been the watch I find myself reaching for every day. The design is simple, clean, with a legible dial that is easy to read at a glance. The bracelet is very comfortable on my wrist. I purchased the leather strap but haven't worn it yet because I enjoy the bracelet so much. Overall, the Olmsted 38 is a great choice for me and has become my "go-to" watch! I am definitely considering another purchase. During my visit, Andrew showed me the Humboldt GMT White Dial, and it blew me away! A beautiful watch with amazing lume that took me by surprise! Thanks again Andrew and Nathan and the rest of the OO Team!

    Simply fabulous

    This watch is both beautiful and a great tribute to FLO in terms of design. While I have only had it for three days it is keeping Time perfectly, and it is a joy to wear. I did switch over to the olive green nylon band and find that a bit more comfortable while also complementing the vintage character.

    Newbie

    Couldn't be happier with my purchase. As someone who has never invested much in watches I was happy to find a high quality watch with a cool understated look.
