This is the latest offering from the team at O&W, a Field watch with a "Lefty" twist. I am pretty sure it is not political ; )

Here is the scoop, in their own words -

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 military color codes. It features a 300m waterproof case to 300 m, a 12h rotating bezel in stainless steel, and a 2824-2 ETA movement adjusted in 5 positions. The OW 350CI is a tool watch that can be worn in any condition. It can be put on the left wrist to avoid damaging its oversized crown during a dive, a mission, or when practicing motorsports.

The OW 350CI is the result of our collaboration with the Atelier Zevaco, a vintage motorcycle restoration workshop based in Zürich. Of both Swiss and military heritage, the Condor 350 is an iconic motorcycle for military servicemen in Switzerland in the 1970s and 80s.
