How it works

Purchasing

Direct communication.

Cofounder Beat Weinmann is your direct contact! Each ochs und junior is personally sold by Beat Weinmann.

This will include a link to your watch, so that Beat will be able to see your design. You can also use the direct contact information below to discuss your custom-made watch with Beat:

Placing your order.

To order the watch you have designed in the customizer tool, please click the “Email Beat Weinmann” button in the upper right corner. This will allow you to send Beat an email that automatically includes the watch you have designed. To complete your order, we will need to know your address, telephone number and wrist size (printable tape measure).

Payment.

Beat Weinmann will email you a secure online payment link from our credit card processor in Switzerland, Saferpay. We accept the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Confirmation of ochs und junior AG’s compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard is available here. If you would prefer to pay via bank transfer, we will provide you with our account information. Payment is before your watch ships (terms and conditions).

Swiss made.

Your ochs und junior will be individually-manufactured in Switzerland (production details) and hand-assembled at our workshop in Lucerne. Watches that include color take 8-12 weeks to manufacture, while pure metal watches (including those with patination and precious metals) take about 6 weeks to manufacture. When your watch is finished, you can either have it shipped via FedEx or pick it up at our workshop in Lucerne. Priority overnight FedEx shipping costs CHF 150.

Service.

ochs und junior offers a lifetime warranty on all parts designed by Ludwig Oechslin and a 2 year warranty on the entire watch. If your watch requires service, please contact Beat Weinmann directly using the contact information above. For issues covered under warranty we will provide you with our FedEx number so you can return your watch to us free of charge. Most repairs are handled in about 10 days. You can read our approach to service in this January 29 2015 thought post.

Engraving.

ochs und junior watches have no logo, which means they have plenty of room for your personal engraving. The entire case back is yours to engrave, should you wish. You can inscribe a dedication, a date, your company logo, a personal symbol, or any other message or image. We are happy to show you engraving examples. Please contact us to see them and for pricing information.

Exclusively direct.

We exclusively sell directly to avoid retail margins for our customers and to provide them with the highest level of customer service and product knowledge. We undertook this decision based on Beat Weinmann’s 16 years of experience as director of one of Europe’s leading watch retailers. ochs und junior sells about 150 watches per year.

Tool

Saving your watch design.

Please click the “View with full strap” button in the upper right corner. This will open your design in a new tab with a unique URL. You can bookmark this page to return to your design later.

Printing your watch design at 1:1 scale.

Please click the “View with full strap” button. This will open your watch design in a new tab. The watch on this page will print at 1:1 scale. You can cut-out this watch with scissors, and try it on your wrist!

Comparing two watches you are interested in.

Please click the “View with full strap” button in the upper right corner. This will open your initial design in a new tab. Then return to the customizer tool tab and create your second design. When you click “View with full strap”, your second design will open in another new tab.

The customizer is not loading properly.

Please clear your browser cache and reload the customizer. This should resolve the issue. If it does not, please let us know, and we will investigate promptly. A screenshot and details about your web browser and operating system will help us troubleshoot.

Slow performance.

The tool works best on fast computers running Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Opera. Performance is slower in Safari and on older iPads. Beat Weinmann can also develop the idea for your personal ochs und junior with you over email, on the phone, or in person in Lucerne. You can send questions and feedback about the customization tool directly to ochs und junior’s in-house designer, Cail Pearce.

Something is impossible in the tool.
