We believe the most timeless and desirable watches are often the simplest , for this reason we decided to create the DP-2. The DP-2  focuses on a more authentic approach, bringing together the purest watchmaking techniques to create a vintage-inspired timepiece for your wrist. The results are neo-vintage, tool style watches with Japanese mechanical movements and well-proportioned solid Stainless Steel cases inspired by the best Watches of the past.

DP-2 CASE

The construction: The 316 Stainless Steel casing on this Watch has a rock solid feel to it. The brush finishing on the cushion-cut case is no-nonsense, with a distinctive asymmetrical cushion shape. The crown is at 4 o’clock and is protected by the bulging crown guard, giving it a very unique and instantly recognizable geometry. The oversized crown is about 6.3mm wide, with shallow grooves covering the whole thing and six deep grooves for good grip.

The case measures about 44mm wide by 47mm long with 20mm lugs. It’s an excellent size for most wrists, not too big and not too small. The shape of the case and case back sit very comfortably on the wrist, making it a very easy watch to wear.

 

DP-2 SAPPHIRE GLASS

Double AR Coated Sapphire Glass, slightly domed, with a beveled circumference.  Admiring the watch at certain angles shades of blue are apparent.

DP-2 DIAL / HANDS

The Dial is finished in anti-reflective black. Hour and minute hands are lume filled faceted steel baton style, while the second hand is a unique “stop light” style with lume filled holes at the tip. Large hands are painted with C3 Super-LumiNova for ease of viewing in all conditions. Quick set date at three  o'clock.

 

 

 

 

DP-2 MOVEMENT

The DP-2 is powered by the robust Seiko caliber NH35A , a 24 jewel full rotor automatic that runs at 21,600 bph. It is also hand windable, but the automatic winding mechanism is so efficient that a few flicks of the wrist will start it running from a dead stop. One nice touch that is not often found in dive Watches (vintage or modern) is that this movement hacks, meaning the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out.
