ChronoDivers WW2 Dirty Dozen Tribute – Affordable Quality Army Dive Watch

We wanted to create a dive watch reflecting the style of the classic Military watches from the 1940’s and 50’s. Some of our favourite timepieces are the Dirty Dozen WWII watches worn by our Second World War heroes (see references for link). But we also wanted to embrace modern technologies like BGW9 Lume on the hands and a Domed Sapphire Crystal with Anti-Reflective coating. The ChronoDivers CDMD300 is the result of this brief – a high quality – affordable water resistant Dive Watch powered by the bomb proof Sii NH35A Automatic Self Winding movement.

Gallery – WW2 Dirty Dozen Homage

A few pictures of our tribute to the Dirty Dozen watches of WW2 – the ChronoDivers CDMD300. All our watches are presented in an attractive gift box with the watch mounted on a black velvet cushion. We sell this watch with a variety of straps from a camouflage silicone strap to a hybrid canvas and leather one. If you’re not sure which you prefer – go for the ND Limits / NATO option. This comes with TWO watch straps – you get the ballistic nylon NATO strap in James Bond 007 SPECTRE colours and the super comfortable silicone N.D.Limits strap – Citizen style.

Our CDMD300 features the “Broad Arrow” – a symbol used to depict items that belonged to, or were endorsed by, the British Army – found on most of the Dirty Dozen watches of World War 2. Unfortunately we can’t claim that accolade but our watch has been designed as a tribute to all those classic Army watches that have preceded it.

Technical Features & Functions

The team at ChronoDivers applied the same parts procurement process to this watch as we did to our very successful Seiko SKX Homage – the ChronoDivers CD200SKX diver. Every component has been selected due to it’s quality to withstand the marine environment – robustness, reliability and – most importantly – affordability.

Guaranteed Water Resistant : All our watches are static pressure tested to 200m (20 Bar). In horological terms this means they can be worn for scuba diving / free diving. However – in our opinion – static testing is not representative of real world conditions. For this reason, we guarantee all our watches for swimming, snorkelling, sailing, surfing etc. – but NOT scuba diving.

Remember – there is NO MIDDLEMAN when you buy from ChronoDivers – that’s why are watches are 50% cheaper than they would be in the shops or sold by other online retailers.

How can we sell it so cheaply?

Please don’t think because it’s less than £200 it’s an inferior product. The ChronoDivers CDMD300 Dirty Dozen is another example of what can be achieved when there is no middleman taking their cut of the profits. The ChronoDivers CDMD300 is an affordable, usable, good quality water resistant Military style timepiece. A glance down the specification and technical features list and you’ll probably wonder how we do it. The answer – by selling DIRECT to our customers.
