Key Features

One of the more striking watches in our collection, this OSCO features a bright orange pumpkin tone dial with a nifty black and red seconds subdial. The white and red accents are also utilised in the tasteful painted indices and black and white baton style hands, a highly readable dial. The tonneau case looks and feels sturdy, and yet with a thickness of only 9.5mm it’s incredibly wearable. The black bakelite bezel has some minor wearing around the edges but is in otherwise perfect working condition. We’ve paired this timepiece with a suitably earth-toned brown genuine leather 18mm strap, giving the watch an autumnal feel to it.
