Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of stainless steel do you use?

All of our watches are constructed with 316L surgical grade stainless steel.

What type of movement do you use?

It depends on the model. Our flagship model the Dryden Chrono Diver (DCD) utilizes the Seiko Mechaquartz VK63 movement. Future models will likely utilize a combination of Japanese and Swiss quartz, mechaquartz and automatic movements based on their technical needs.

Are your watches water resistant?

The water resistance of our product varies based on the model. In most instances, the crown must be pushed or screwed into the case to achieve the advertised water resistance. Failure to do so may result in water damage that is not covered by the warranty.

What type of coating is used on your watch? 

Some of our models feature PVD coated stainless steel. It is resistant to scratches and corrosion but will wear down slow over time as a result of use.

How do I use the functions of my watch? 

Please visit the product page for your specific model to access the manual.

What shipping couriers do you use?

What is your warranty policy?

Our two-year limited warranty starts on the original date of purchase and covers all manufacturing defects in material or workmanship. Qualifying warranty repairs will be made at our service facility at no cost to the customer. The warranty does not cover the strap, crystal, case, crown, or battery. The warranty is invalid if there is evidence of damage from user negligence or if the damage is a result of an unauthorized service repair. 

The warranty card and a copy of the purchase receipt must accompany all repair orders.

Do you offer in-house repair services for damages that are not covered by the warranty?

We have an in-house technician who can restore or replace broken or worn out components. The fee is assessed by the extent of the damage and the price of the component.
