CHRONO DIVER SERIES 1


For our first release, we combined the best technical features available with a clean and functional design. The end result is an extremely versatile watch that keeps up with you from a workday at the office to a weekend getaway on the ocean front. 


The Concept

We sought to create a distinctive timepiece that is function driven and built for long-term performance.  


To achieve our goal, we utilized time-tested premium components individually designed, sourced, and assembled by our head watch technician in our Kansas City workshop. 


The Chrono Diver Series 1 features a 100 meter water resistant case with a screw down crown, 120-click rotating bezel, 60-minute chronograph and a tachymeter scale. Offered in over 10 different styles with custom builds available upon request, we're confident you'll find one that suits your unique taste.

DESIGN DETAILS


The modern 42mm case features a brushed finish highlighted by polished chamfers and the downward tapering lugs create a comfortable fit on most wrists.  Long stem pushers make it easy for the wearer to operate the chronograph function with gloves on. 


A double-domed sapphire crystal protects against scratches and wear. The broad arrow hand set and contrasting sub-dials allow for easy legibility. A date window cutout is conveniently placed at the 4:30 position. 


The screw down case back is decorated with the silhouette of a sailboat which inspired the original concept. 


PERFORMANCE DETAILS


The Seiko VK63 Mechaquartz movement powers the Chrono Diver with a smooth (1/5s) chronograph hand and instant mechanical reset. Track up to 60 minutes of elapsed time  using the left sub-dial. The right sub-dial is the 24 hour indicator and the running second is in the bottom sub-dial. 


To ensure the long term durability of your time piece, we've built the Chrono Diver to be water resistant to 100 meters.  A generous application of Swiss Superluminova provides easy visibility in all environments. 


All models are equipped with quick release spring bars to make strap changes easy and convenient.

"This collection borrows the best features from both dive and chronograph style watches, seamlessly mixing the toughness and legibility of a diver with the timing capabilities and functionality of a chronograph. The result is a capable watch that’s ideal for everyday wear."


Worn & Wound 

"The Dryden Chrono Diver is able to accomplish that value proposition with a well-executed package. Thanks to the addition of the dive bezel, it also manages to separate itself from the pack of quartz chronographs on the market today."
