New Watch Alert – Ollech & Wajs Ocean Graph

Those of you that listen to our twice-weekly podcast instalments will know I have long admired O&W (i am not retyping the full name again, it is worse than trying to remember how to spell Heuer)

Long admired enough to have  C1000 on *cough “loan” *cough, honest lockdown means all return postal services are suspended. (it is lovely though)

Check out A Chicken Wrists Delight review of the C1000 here

So it comes as no surprise that this new piece named the Ocean Graph looks just like it needs another sample sent to SW tower.

With added bezel action by the way of decompression tables, this will be just perfect for use in the bath during lockdown I am sure.

The bracelets on this brands watches are always a delight but this Pelon Nylon straps also looks just the business

For the money there are not many watches as well made a capable as those being produced by O&W right now, you really should check them out.

This is what they have to say about this new release.

Ollech & Wajs Ocean-Graph

This model is a tribute to the 1968 Ollech & Wajs Ocean-Graph and all the dive watches that formed the highly respected ‘Precision’ line. These watches were equipped with decompression bezels, an essential instrument for the safety of any diver venturing into deep water.

The decompression bezel of the new OW Oceangraph has three concentric zones. The most central zone indicates the elapsed dive time, from 0 to 60 minutes (A). It also contains indications for the maximum depth of the dive, carried out in meters (B). In the intermediate zone are marked the dive times (C) for which decompression will be necessary, according to the depth indicated in the most central zone (B). The outermost zone of the bezel indicates the decompression times, in minutes (D), that the diver must respect at a depth of three meters, calculated according to the depth (B) and total duration of the dive (A).


The OW Ocean Graph is a compact diving watch, with a water resistance of 1,000 meters, which is tested under a pressure of 120 ATM. Its incredible watertightness is ensured by a reinforced case back, a double-thickness case, a 5.6 mm thick, extra-strong, domed sapphire crystal, and a special screw-down crown with four gaskets.
