Dryden Chrono Diver Series 1 - Black Silver


The Dryden Chronograph Diver (DCD-1) combines the functionality and precision of a traditional chronograph watch with the bold look and durability of a dive watch. 

The DCD-1 is housed in a 316L stainless steel case with brushed finishing and polished pushers. The watch features a black 120-click unidirectional rotating bezel as well as a tachymeter under the double-domed sapphire crystal. 

The glossy black enamel dial is contrasted by silver textured subdials with a 24-hour indicator at three o'clock, a running seconds at six o'clock and the chronograph minute counter at nine o'clock. The polished hour, minute and chronograph hands offer a classic and refined presentation. The Seiko VK63 Mechaquartz chronograph module sweeps at 1/5s precise timing and offers instant mechanical reset. A generous application of Swiss Superluminova C3 offers easy legibility at night.

The watch will be shipped inside a waxed canvas roll for easy storage and travel.

This specific model is assembled in the US by our in-house technician. The inventory will be updated weekly as new stock becomes available.

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. To achieve the advertised water resistance, the crown must be screwed in and the chronograph function cannot be activated while underwater. Damage as a result of failure to adhere to these guidelines will not be covered by the warranty.

The Dryden Chrono Diver

Uniquely Yours

Get ready to turn heads with this vintage-inspired timepiece. The Dryden Chrono Diver is the flagship collection that helped launched our brand back in 2019. Drawing from the same purpose driven watches of the 1960s, we revived the concept into a capable modern companion that’s perfect for daily wear. Offered in an array of dial colors and bezel options, we are confident you'll find one to suit your style and personality.

American Assembly

Even though we're a newer brand to the industry, we hold ourselves and our products to a higher standard by hand-assembling every watch individually in our Kansas City workshop. Our skilled watchmakers evaluate all component functions and each movement is regulated to ensure accurate performance. We proudly stand behind our work with a two-year warranty and in-house repairs.

Mechaquartz Movement

A mechaquartz movement combines the accuracy and reliability of quartz movements with the craftsmanship and precision of their mechanical counterpart. The Seiko Mechaquartz VK63 provides precise timekeeping, 1/5s sweeping chronograph with instant reset all while avoiding expensive maintenance costs.

Modern Proportions

Despite its vintage origins, the Dryden Chrono Diver features a bold 42mm case. The brushed and polished lugs slope aggresively downward for a snug and comfortable fit on any wrist. At 13.5mm tall including the domed sapphire crystal, the Dryden Chrono Diver is water ready with 100 meters of water resistance.

Adventure Ready

Durable, stylish and hypoallengic – the stock Tropical Rubber Watch Strap is guaranteed to get you through your adventures. Made from premium FKM rubber, this watch strap offers unbelievable comfort and elasticity without compromising on style or performance. Its ergonomic design ensures a secure fit and back of the strap is fitted with a diamond shaped pattern to help improve airflow in humid climates.

Swiss Superluminova

Superluminova (BGW9 or Old Radium C3 depending on the model) on the dial, hands and bezel ensure visibility in all lighting conditions.
