New Release: ochs und junior settimana classic black

Following the launch of its Settimana Classic White in November 2021, innovative Swiss brand ochs und junior is expanding its non-customizable offerings with the Settimana Classic Black.

Like it’s white counterpart, the Settimana Classic Black features a a 7-day module developed by Ludwig Oechslin. On the dial, the days of the week are displayed in a minimalist fashion by a black dot seen through one of seven apertures—one for each day of the week  and the end of the week, the dot quickly traces a longer arc, returning to the one o’clock Monday aperture  (the watch below shows Wednesday).

The watch features the same stark case design seen on all the brand’s models, here rendered in grade 5 titanium. It will be available in both 40mm and 36mm. You’ll have the option of either baton markers or Arabic numerals in either case size.

While ochs und junior is known for the ability to customize a model ad infinitum, the ochs und junior Settimana Classic Black is another addition to the brand’s lineup of models with set designs; no customization is available. What you get is a watch with clear ochs und junior DNA: aggressive in its simplicity with a novel weekday module. I’d venture a guess that this will be an even better seller than the white option. The Settimana Classic Black will be offered at CHF 2,600 (CHF 2,400 excluding VAT) with a lead time of 8-12 weeks. You can learn more here
