WHO WE ARE

We’re a Chicago-based independent watch company founded in 2015. We care about making big plans, working with good people and making sure the details make the design.

WHY WE DO IT

We’re watch guys. And we're inspired by the experiences people have with their watches. Wether passed down from generation to generation, worn at weddings, or given as gifts that mark special occasions, we’re honored to make products that become a part of people’s lives.

Chase Fancher


FOUNDER

 

Founder, capital put-er-upper, designer, risk taker and the guy who makes the coffee and pours the bourbon in the shop. Chase left an unfulfilling corporate job to start Oak & Oscar and find a better work life balance.

He spends his time designing, managing the team, making big plans and keeping Oscar, his mischievous dog, entertained at the Chicago-based shop.

John Hatherly


CREATIVE DIRECTOR

 

John is a designer by trade, artist by night, and tennis player any day of the week. A self-taught designer whose liberal arts background in mathematics and economics provides both an analytical rigor and holistic, “big-picture” approach to his work.

As Creative Director, he approaches design with a sense of wonder; seeking experiences that balance playful curiosity with meticulous precision. He doesn't believe great work happens in a vacuum. Design is not a nine-to-five job; for him, it’s a window to the world.

 
 

Good People Build Great Products


We believe design can and should inspire.

Since 2015, we’ve partnered with good people to build great products that are beautiful, superbly crafted, and uniquely Oak & Oscar.

Meet the partners we collaborate with to make your Oak & Oscar timepiece.

 
 
 

we LOVE DOGS

That’s why a portion of every Oak & Oscar purchase goes toward helping One Tail at a Time, a local dog rescue committed to providing rescue and adoption services for dogs in need.
