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.

DMC 1981 Black Chronograph

Great present for a BTTF collector!

My partner loved it! I struggled to decide which one to get but went with the 1981 Black chronograph option to bring BTTF colours into the gift! Perfect present idea for someone who has everything Back to the Future! :)

Beautiful watch for a good price

Absolutely Love the look and feel of this watch, the retro Delorean style has quickly made it my favorite watch. However, the tachymeter on this watch is rendered completely useless because the timer uses its own dial for seconds instead of the main second hand of the watch.

Awesome watch

Been eyeing off a DMC watch for a while now and when I saw the 1981 Chronograph I couldn't wait any longer. Was posted promptly and arrived very quickly - considering I'm in Australia - and I could not be happier with the look and quality of this awesome watch.

Part of a ledgend

When Delorean gave us the all stainless steel super sports car he also gave us
the DMC sport divers watch take a look not to be missed

Great Scott!

Loved the watch! Great case! Great style! I received the watch in a box that was shipped over seas... More on that in a tick! The website is confusing, I wanted the silver band, not leather, and the first few times I looked at the website and put it into my cart it was deceiving. The metal band cost more even though the picture displayed with the metal band was the same price as the leather, when in reality is was more expensive when added to the cart. I took a week or two, and got 20% off which was satisfying. The packaging, well, was, a little beat up. Not taped very well, I understand. Packaged very lightly, not packed to handle the throws of disgruntled workers trying to meet quotas from shore to shore never mind truck to truck. The watch arrived ticking perfectly to my eastern USA time, but was a bit saddened by the worry of finally getting the box and I could tell that someone (not from the factory, but among transit) had a bad day. Don’t get me wrong! I will buy again as this was a gift to my brother. Made me jealous when it came in that I had to gift it away.

Awesome and fast delivery
