The Ollech & Wajs OW Navichron: 

The iconic 60s chronograph is back 

The original OW Navichron of 1967 was amongst the first chronographs certified to 20ATM (or 200m) water resistance, enabling divers to keep track of elapsed time more accurately underwater. 

Taking its design cues from a long line of Ollech & Wajs specialty chronographs, the new OW Navichron is well suited to the conditions facing professionals and sportsmen. A Valjoux 7753 based two-counter chronograph with a 12-hour sliding bezel, enables travellers to determine time across different zones. The OW Navichron retains all of the classic styling of the 1960s OW chronographs but with modern technical specifications. 

Like its predecessor, the modern day OW Navichron is a professional grade diving watch, its specially reinforced case, extra-thick sapphire glass, and unique 4 gasket pushers capable of withstanding over 50 atm (500m) of pressure. Its baton style markers and hands feature Super-LumiNova®, to ensure maximum visibility in all conditions.  

The PRECISION rated, customised Valjoux 7753 with engraved mainplate is housed in a 39.56mm, 316L stainless-steel case. The ’.56’ being a subtle nod to 1956, the year OW was founded in Zurich.

In the air – on the land – under the sea. Wherever you need a precision timing instrument, the OW Navichron is equal to any challenge.

The OW Navichron comes on a luxurious racing style natural leather and linen hand stitched Italian strap and is priced at CHF 2,056 (around £1,853)
