First, a note about the name and theming of our watches.
Though drawing inspiration and taking cues from classic watch styles, the stories our watches tell aren't about type, they are about the roads that those who wear them walk down. Literally. Our watches are named after streets from around the world.
Presenting our second watch...
ABOUT THE NAME
Naming our watches after the roads we walk around the world, but always with a roll-up-your-sleeves Hamilton lens, we wanted to stay in Canada for our first few models. So of course, it would be hard for us to look past our neighbour a few kilometres east, Toronto.
Originally established as a military route by colonial settlers, Ossington has grown from those early days, through industrial times and challenging periods in the late 20th century, to now one of exciting experimentation and taste-making. Ossington has emerged as a vibrant centre of culture, cuisine, entrepreneurs, and nightlife.
Whether a day-time stroll exploring the shops, stopping for sips, and meeting the makers of the street, or night time outings at bistros and breweries... or capping off late-nights with a snack at the iconic Lakeview Restaurant (officially Dundas street, we know, but integral to the Ossington experience), Ossington is an experience all itself.

One of the most physically fascinating aspects of Ossington, particularly along its "main-drag," is that unlike the rest of Toronto, it has remained largely, architecturally untouched for the past 70 years.
Drawing from these mid-century building styles, and combining with the effortlessly cool character of the modern street, we went in a minimal dress watch direction with heavy Bauhaus design influences. The result is a piece that combines cool refinement with the rustic, everyday hero style that Locke & King is known for.
Between the clean geometric simplicity, and the complexity of the guilloche dial representing rough patches across time, and even with the subtle nod made by the hour markers to Scott Eunson's Ossington Particles installation found in the Ossington station, this watch embodies the experimentally casual cool that the street now represents.
With three colour iterations to start, the refined design ensures it's an everyday hero that looks as good dressed up as it does dressed down.
