Introducing Trek, Dive, and Chrono from Dango Products: three new watches that have benefited from the company’s demonstrated talent for crafting bold, functional designs, delivering everyday items that are both robust and fun to wear.
Company co-founder and CEO Charlie Carroll always wanted to make “cool” products that people can relate to and see value in, and that, in a nutshell, is what Dango does. The company ethos is that superior design should not only build a creative culture, but also inspire a creative lifestyle.
As with all products that Dango offers, co-founder and Chief Creative Designer Thuan Tran and Creative Director Binh Tran oversaw the design of the watches at every stage, from the modular sizing, face, casing, bands, and engineering.
Now Dango is introducing TREK, a field watch, DIVE, a sports watch, and CHRONO, you guessed it, a chronograph watch. Three completely different designs to match each sector, while the modular design enables complete freedom to fine-tune for both comfort and style: the company’s design approach means all Dango watch casings are compatible with an array of accessories.
Every watch comes equipped with its signature lug set and strap or bracelet. The interchangeable lugs allow you to configure a lugged or lugless watch, while also enabling you to swap out straps and bracelets. That way the wearer can easily transform their watch from rugged to sleek, from racing to relaxing – or whatever look you’re going for.
When it comes to watches, Dango believes a timepiece should embody the true essence of a person’s character, and they wanted to capture this in their design.
The TK-01 Trek watch is a 45mm field watch, designed with precision timekeeping powered by a Ronda Swiss quartz movement. Water-resistant up to 50 meters, the TK-01 is available with either a Horween® leather strap and stainless steel buckle with quick-release spring bars, or a Nato strap with dual loops and quick-release spring bars. The watch sells from US$175.
The DV-01 Dive watch is a 45mm sport watch. Armed with a Ronda Swiss quartz movement, this watch embodies true grit. The watch features a rotating bezel with a minimalistic, clear watch face, making it perfect for the avid diver, with submergible depths of up to 200 meters. The DV-01 is available with either a silicone sport strap with a stainless steel buckle and quick-release spring bars or an all-metal stainless steel bracelet with micro-adjustments and dual handle quick-release spring bars. The watch sells from US$325.
The CR-01 Chrono watch is a 45mm chronograph watch featuring tachymeter readings on the bezel. Inspired by automotive design, the Chrono watch face recalls the spirit of automotive gauge clusters, with precision timekeeping. Also powered by a Ronda Swiss quartz chronograph movement, stop timing is fluid and accurate. A model of precision styling, the CR-01 comes with either an all-metal stainless steel bracelet with micro-adjustments and dual handle quick-release spring bars or the Horween® leather strap with quick-release spring bars. The watch sells from US$425.
Determined to provide innovative, meaningful products through precision-crafted, creative industrial design, Dango is passionate about delivering inspired design for your everyday wear and use, as clearly evidenced by this formidable new watch line.
