OW 350CI S
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 Swiss military colour codes. The OW 350CI is the result of our collaboration with Atelier Zevaco, a vintage motorcycle restoration workshop based in Zurich. The Condor 350 is an iconic motorcycle of both Swiss and military heritage. Condor was awarded a contract to manufacture motorcycles for the Swiss Army, with records showing that 3,000 were produced for the army between 1973 and 1978. Rugged, reliable and easy to service, the Condor 350 proved a firm favourite with troops and was used though the 80s and beyond.

The first 56 OW 350CI watches were all inverted left-hand-side crowns, but this watch is now available in non-inverted set-up. Motorcycle enthusiasts and left-handers will be pleased to know that this watch can still be made inverted by special order (contact email@example.com when placing your order to specify inverted crown model).
The watch features a 300 m waterproof case; a 12-hour dual-time rotating bezel in stainless steel; and the robust 2824-2 ETA movement, adjusted in five positions. The movement’s mainplate is engraved with ‘Ollech & Wajs Zurich 1956’ and fitted with our own machined rotor, bearing the famous OW propellor monogram.
The OW 350CI S is presented on the OW S-type Mark II bracelet, inspired by those found on many Ollech & Wajs models of the 1960s. Its links are individually machined in a solid block of 316L stainless steel, before being carefully brushed, assembled and screwed by hand. This process prevents the usual stretching common among pressed steel bracelets, ensuring both longevity and comfort to the wearer. The bracelet’s double-lock deployant clasp prevents accidental opening.
The OW 350CI is mounted on a 20 mm-wide Italian leather and natural linen strap, which echo the colour scheme of the painted metal frame of the Condor 350.
