The burnham

Named after Daniel Burnham, architect and city planner extraordinaire, and a nod to the founder’s own father who always remarked about the beauty in the layout of Chicago’s streets and the aesthetics of New York City’s Flat Iron building, Oak & Oscar's maiden reference combines the highest quality materials with authentic craftsmanship and design.

The Swiss automatic Soprod movement is housed within a custom-designed case with a grey sandwich dial, dark grey hands and an orange seconds hand with a custom counter balance.  The color-matched date wheel features a modified font and is positioned at 6 o'clock to maintain balance and symmetry.  The custom rotor, heat-treated blued screws and decorated bridges can be seen through the sapphire display back. The leather strap, made of Horween leather by Indiana-based Woodnsteel, has the perfect orange undertones and will develop a beautiful patina over time.  The Burnham also comes with a navy heavy-duty nylon strap with a signed buckle and orange stitching from Crown & Buckle.  The watch itself is assembled and tested in the US by a highly skilled team of experts at the Ohio-based Lum-Tec.

Each watch includes a matching leather watch wallet made by Defy Mfg Co., a local Chicago bag, apparel and accessory shop. Buttery Horween leather, the same leather used for the watch strap, is combined with the soft, protective 100% wool felt from Germany to cradle a total of four watches, an extra strap and strap tool in a compact, flat, portfolio-style case perfect for traveling and displaying one’s collection at the ever-popular watch meet-ups.
