The Oak & Oscar Jackson Curling Watch - Best Mechanical Watch

For a long time, the best mechanical watches were simply timepieces used to run business on time, and keep time sensitive systems such the rail-lines, safe to use. That has changed since advent of computers However, today watches have taken a new meaning, - they have become metamorphosed into works of art and engineering.

Best Mechanical Watch Under 5000

Today a watch is a lifestyle symbol that you can proudly wear, to remind others of your social status and fashion taste. Others have chosen watches as symbols that allow users to commemorate special events or products. In that regard, we now have the Oak & Oscar Jackson Curling Watch - one of the best best mechanical watches. It reminds us of a special victory in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

While it seem like the 2018 Winter Olympic Games is a distant event that took place ages ago. However, it actually happened a few months ago, in PyeongChang County, South Korea, where the final ceremony was conducted.

There are many stories that caught our attention during the 2018 games, such as the converted snowboarder that beat the field in downhill skiing, or even the U.S. women's hockey team winning gold medal, which we had been anticipating for quite a while.

However, one event that took everybody by surprise was the Curling. The U.S. men's team taking the Gold caught many of us by surprise, and led to all kinds of celebration acts, such as screaming at the TV at the top of our lungs. It is therefore not a surprise that we now have the Oak & Oscar Jackson Curling Watch, to commemorate that special event.

After the win, the five-man team thought they should do something to recognize the efforts of their coach Phill Drobnick. That is when the team's media favorite, Matt Hamilton, contacted Oak & Oscar, a watchmaker based in Chicago, to find out if they were interested in helping the team achieve that goal.

Best Mechanical Watch - Oak & Oscar Jackson Curling Olympic Watch

Luckily, Chase Fancher, the Founder was not only happy to do something for the team, but he was also going to make it truly memorable. The outcome of his efforts was the special Jackson chronograph.

When you look at the watch, you will notice that it has all the basics, nothing has changed in that regard. You will also notice that it still has the 14.5 mm thick stainless steel case, with a 40 mm diameter.

As a classic timepiece, it has a manually wound flyback chronograph movement, which has a column wheel, and a stacked totalizer register located at 3 o'clock. Moreover, it has a grey dial for its base, which is a slight variation from the Jackson's blue dial.

To make the watch special, Fancher put a curling stone on the watch’s Oak & Oscar signature, located at 12 O’clock. He did it so subtly, making it look almost their brand logo, that it's hard to tell the two apart on at a glance. Moreover, just below the signature, you will see the words "Gold 2018."

That serves to remind you, the watch is a commemoration of a Gold medal for the team in 2018. Furthermore, when you turn it over, you will be able to see the actual date of the fateful match - the day the U.S.A team won the medal against Sweden- "2/24/2018."

To finish the special design, Fancher designed a Horween leather strap with a white, red and blue color scheme. He then had it manufactured by a U.S. based leather-goods supplier. Finally, they created a custom-stamped leather strap that restates the "Gold 2018" decorative pattern.

2018 Olympics and the Win by Hamilton Team

Hamilton and his teammates could have chosen to simply walk onto any watch boutique, pick a watch from one of the brands that sponsored the 2018 Olympics, and then have it engraved for their coach. Instead of that shortcut, they chose something far much better, - a custom designed Oak & Oscar Jackson watch - that has truly immortalized the win in the eyes of watch lovers.

If you enjoyed watching the 2018 Olympics, and the win by Hamilton team, then you should take this opportunity to get this watch. Most watches choose quality materials and ingenious designs as their selling points.The Oak & Oscar Jackson Curling Watch stands out from the pack, - it represents in the historical win for Americans in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Overall, we will all proudly cherish the memories that this watch will brings, for the rest of our lives - a winning moment that we all hoped for, but none of us anticipated.
