* The name and design of the OW 350CI refer to the Condor 350 motorcycle and its inverted controls ("commandes inversées"). Its khaki dial has yellow indexes to respect military color codes. It features a 300m waterproof case to 300 m, a 12h rotating bezel in stainless steel, and a 2824-2 ETA movement adjusted in 5 positions. The OW 350CI is a tool watch that can be worn in any condition. It can be put on the left wrist to avoid damaging its oversized crown during a dive, a mission, or when practicing motorsports.

 

* The 350CI is the result of O&Ws collaboration with the Atelier Zevaco, a vintage motorcycle restoration workshop based in Zürich. Of both Swiss and military heritage, the Condor 350 is an iconic motorcycle for military servicemen in Switzerland in the 1970s and 80s.

 

* This particular model is one of the first 56 made in the series and features a special crown embossed with its own unique number.

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.
