YOUR LOYALTY HAS BEEN REWARDED
It was never easy. As a Chicago Cubs fan, there was no bandwagon to hop on. The annual journey from hopeful to heartache was frequently painful, yet always a unique source of pride. Whether it was ‘45, ’69, ’84, or ’03, you stayed loyal.
And then, after an unfathomable 108-year wait, “next year” finally arrived.
To celebrate the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, and honor the sacrifice made by Cubs fans past and present, Original Grain has created a tribute of the highest caliber: an historic timepiece built with Reclaimed Wrigley Field Wooden Seats.
It is time to savor the moment.
SEATS SOAKED IN HISTORY
Think about the life of these seats. They were there for the goat in ’45. They heard Harry Caray sing. They saw Santo at third, Ryno at second, and Ernie play two. They’ve been there for all of it. It’s the kind of history that could only be found in Authentic Wrigley Field Wooden Seats. Now, that history is yours forever.
Handcrafting a cutting edge timepiece out of these amazing artifacts was just as painstaking a process as you might imagine. Preserving the wood as well as its original character, color, and patina meant combining age-old woodworking techniques with state–of-the-art machinery. Like an Arrieta two-seamer, each piece has been carved with razor-sharp precision
SAVOR IT NOW. CHERISH IT FOREVER.
2016. A season for the record books soaked in sweat, tears, and champagne. It was a victory for the sons and daughters, the mothers and fathers, and the grandparents who never got to fly the final W.
To celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime moment in Cubs history, we’ve made just 2,016 of these special timepieces. It’s a limited chance to own a precious slice of baseball history. It’s a reward for your unwavering loyalty. And it’s an heirloom, perfect for passing down to the next generation of fans in your family.
IT’S ALL IN THE MECHANICS
On a timepiece this special, the materials and mechanics had to be premium. Each watch is powered by a Swiss Made Ronda 5020 Quartz Chronograph Movement, while the Sapphire Crystal Glass and stainless steel case ensure elegant durability. Best of all, the official Cubs blue and red will transport you to Wrigley each time you glance downward.

There’s no place in the world like “The Friendly Confines.” The oldest park in the National League is in a class of its own. Decades of day baseball. The ivy-covered brick wall. The 7th inning sing-alongs. From 1914 to today, Wrigley Field’s lore rivals that of baseball itself.
From the humble beginnings in 1870 to the Promised Land in 2016, no other team has a carved out a history like this. Banks. Santo. Williams. Sandberg. Maddux. The list of legends runs deeper than Lake Michigan. Sure, the number of titles can be counted on one hand, but there’s never been a bond like the one between Chicago and its beloved Cubs.
