The Year An Icon Was Born

Fresh to the DMC Watch lineup is the brand new 1981 Chronograph collection, named after the year the first DeLorean rolled off the assembly line. With a generous 42 mm stainless steel case equipped with a duo of chronograph pushers and a tachymeter scale, the DMC 1981 Chronograph carries on the same sporty spirit of the iconic DeLorean car.

The Dial. The Watch Dashboard

Like the dashboard of a car, the dial of the watch tells you everything you need to know. At the center of the dial—available in black or silver—sits the hour and minute hands. And because the chronograph hand takes the traditional place of the seconds’ hand, the seconds are instead displayed in a sub dial at 6 o’clock. At the 9 o’clock position is the 30-minute totalizer. This sub dial records how long the chronograph hand has been running, up to 30 minutes in total. Located at the top of the dial is the 24-hour sub dial, which serves as a day/night indicator. If the hand on the 24-hour sub dial is pointing to “6” then it is 6 AM but if it points to “18” then it is 6 PM. Finally, tucked in between 4 and 5 o’clock is a discreet date window.

Bracelets and Straps

The new DMC 1981 Chronograph offers two different band styles to keep the watch securely and comfortably on your wrist. For a more formal touch, opt for the classic black leather strap fitted with a steel tang buckle. Alternatively, if you prefer a sportier style, then the matching robust stainless steel three-link bracelet equipped with a butterfly clasp is the perfect pairing.

Another great DMC Timepiece

This is my third DMC Watch, I own a DMC Aplha Silver and a Dream Advance as well. This is yet another beautiful timepiece that pays nice homage to small queues that are unique to the Delorean. Every time I wear one of my Delorean watches I manage to get a compliment or question about it from someone.

1981 Black Steel

A beautiful and very elegant watch. Glad to collect it with my Alpha Silver and Alpha Blue.

Great value

This is a great watch especially for the money!


Feels early to review this but have been really pleased with the quality, weight, craft and comfort of the watch. The face is busy and interesting but doesn’t look to cluttered, so very easy to read. The straps don’t rub or irritate my wrist and doesn’t weigh it down excessively like some other watches. If you like back to the future and the original Delorean motor car the watch manages to feature some similar design elements and evokes that retro-modern look. Comes with a box that’s great, I use for display purposes. There is an engraving on the inside which was a big reason why invested in it, it looks good however it’s quite shallow and I’m afraid it might ware away after prolonged usage.

Pretty good. Recommend it. Particularly if you are a fan of the car or the back to the future franchise.


Love the design and fits really well, goes well with my first dmc watch.
