Waiting to takeoff is the Pilomatic… A watch inspired by military, German-made “Pilot” designs and powered – for the first time in Astor + Banks history – by an automatic movement.
On an early bird Amtrak train from Washington, DC to New York I sat across from Chase and chatted with him about the newest member of the Oak & Oscar family – the Sandford. As we sipped lukewarm McDonald’s coffee and watched landscapes and cityscapes whiz by, Chase opened up to me about the journey he’s been on and the dream he’s living right now.
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for reminiscing and documenting backstories. The pictures in this post do just that. They were taken by various members of the Commonwealth Crew over the past (almost) two years. Some were shot with cameras, but most with just a cameraphone. But what they all have in common is they were all shot in the presence of friends and all “for the love of Horology.”
