* The design of the P-101 is functional, refined and military in essence. Ollech & Wajs claim the watch to be a tribute to the thousands of soldiers and officers who chose an OW watch as a survival tool during the 1960s. Its style is deliberately classic in its balance of proportions, with its large lugs, oversized crown, Super-LumiNova® indexes and hands, and semi-domed Sapphire glass. It is equipped with a robust automatic ETA 2824-2 OW3, adjusted by Ollech & Wajs, and also offers 300M water resistance. The P-101 is assembled by hand in the Swiss Jura. 

 

* With a 39.5mm, 316L steel case with screw-down crown, screwed back, sapphire crystal glass and 90% Swiss origin, the Ollech & Wajs range offers fantastic quality at an excellent price point.

 

* This model comes fitted to a 20mm vintage style brown leather strap made from Italian leather.

The Re-Birth of Ollech & Wajs.

The name Ollech & Wajs began in 1956, when Zurich resident Albert Wajs decided to partner with his friend Joseph Ollech and open a luxury watch shop, initially retailing Breitling and Omega before launching their own brand: Ollech & Wajs Zürich.

By the 1960s the Ollech & Wajs range consisted of men's chronographs, diving watches (in particular the Caribbean 1000, which was, as its name suggested, the first 1000m water resistant diving watch), military watches, much appreciated by American soldiers who ordered OWs for entire battalions during the Vietnam war and also pilot’s watches, which the French Air Force commissioned for active use. 

Ollech & Wajs, now under new ownership have returned to the company's heyday and strive to manufacturer high quality, Swiss made sports watches with a nod to the classic designs of their 60s predecessors. All OW watches have a 90% Swiss made origin and are designed at their headquarters: Ollech & Wajs Precision A.G. on Bergstrasse in Zurich and then individually assembled and adjusted in Haute-Sorne, in the Swiss Jura.
