Ollech & Wajs was among the first companies to introduce a range of integrated bracelet sports models in the early 70s. Most notable of these was the OW Ref.8000 – a sleek and angular TV dial chronograph with a stunning !Havana brown fumé’ dial.

To mark the 50th anniversary of this pivotal watch, we have created a new model, which both epitomises and contemporises the character of the OW Ref.8000.

The new, chronologically named OW 8001 has a brutalist, brushed stainless steel tonneau case, which flows seamlessly into an integrated brushed oyster-style bracelet, engineered for extreme durability and modelled closely on the original. For added comfort and stability, the bracelet is finished with a sturdy milled, engraved clasp, extendable up to 22 mm, and a double pusher- release system for extra security against accidental opening.

Unlike a lot of so-called sports watches, the OW 8001 is actually built for sports. It shares the streamline characteristics of its predecessor but has a distinctively more rugged, burly aesthetic.

An uncompromising 316L stainless steel case with a round dial aperture, an extra-thick sapphire crystal and screw-down crown guarantee a superior water resistance of 300 m (30ATM). Weighing in at close to 200g puts the OW 8001 firmly in the heavyweight division.

The dial itself reprises the !Havana fumé’ finish, achieved with a double-lacquering technique that creates a mesmerising radial gradient effect.

What elevates the OW 8001 to a class all of its own lies beyond its tough exterior. Inside the watch is a Chronometer-certifieddeluxe version of the Soprod Newton Precision P092 – OW”s first COSC-certified model of the modern era. The bridge of each movement is stamped with the COSC number, confirming that it meets the accuracy and precision standards of the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. Each OW 8001 also comes with Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres certification papers. The bespoke automatic, date-only calendar movement has 23 jewels and a 44-hour power reserve. The Soprod Newton P092 movement is also independently tested for dependability and durability at the internationally renowned

EXCLUSIVE: Bianca Umali on Winning an International Award and Working With Nora Aunor

One look at Bianca Umali and you know that she is all about Pinoy pride. From flaunting her morena skin to donning Filipino-made pieces, she does not shy away from representing her race and culture. Of course, you can also count on her own craft as part of Filipino excellence. At 2024 Jinseo International Film Festival, the Kapuso star took the honor of the Best Dramatic Performance award for the film Mananambal. In an exclusive interview with MEGA Entertainment, Bianca gives us a lookback on her movie experience, her Best Actress outfit, and her bright future with her next project, Sang’gre

A Shared Victory

“It was an overwhelming feeling of mixed emotions. As an actor, this means the world to me,” the actress begins. “While filming, I just dedicated myself to give more than good justice to my role and make the most out of the working experience with Ms. Nora. Bonus na lang na may makapansin at pumuri sa efforts ko.”

Even in her Gen Z status, the actress is already hoping that her win will inspire the next generations who would like to pursue the same craft as hers. “I dedicate this award to the younger generation of actors as well, especially to the aspiring ones who may face obstacles along the way. I want them to know that their dreams are valid, and with passion, perseverance and the right amount of love and respect for yourself and what you do, anything and everything is possible,” she offers.

A Role of a Lifetime

Perhaps it is Bianca’s consistent and persistent willingness to refine her craft that takes her to greater heights, with recognition just a prefix to her grit. For Mananambal in particular, the actress not only had to play the part but actually look and be it.

Sharing her process, she recounts, “I prepared for it mentally by doing my research about what the life and ways of a true mananambal is. Emotionally, I did personal workshops to build the character and study my scenes. Of course, physically, by growing my hair longer and enhancing my morena skin more for the look of the role.”

During the festival, the actress also exerted her effort for her looks. She reveals to MEGA that throughout their Japan trip, it was only her and her stylist, John Paul Dizon, who collaborated with her ensembles. “He was in charge of my clothing and I was in charge of my hair and make-up,” she shares. “In all the years that JP and I have been working together, what we value the most in our team up is collaboration.”

The Next Bianca on Camera

After the Jinseo Arigato Film Festival, Mananambal has yet to make its Filipino cinema debut. “Iniikot pa sa iba’t ibang film festivals internationally. Pero definitely ay magkakaroon kami ng theatrical release dito sa Pilipinas. Hopefully, by the end of this year,” the Kapuso star says.

Hopping from one project to the next, Bianca is also top billing the next Encantadia series Sang’gre. With fans of the past and today surely on their toes for the series, the actress shares the excitement of the audience. “We have been in the process of creation and taping since November last year. It is a project na pinaglalaanan namin ng napakaraming oras at paghahanda para mapaganda. Hindi na rin ako makapaghintay na makita ng mga tao ito.
