If you’ve been scouring the utilitarian space for some time, it’s likely that you’ve stumbled upon Dango’s well-made EDC items. Not only has the small Santa Clara team created some of the most definitive wristwear, wallet, and accessory designs in the industry, they’ve become a driving force behind the technical innovation of modern peripherals — something that the brand’s TK-01 TREK watch wholeheartedly exudes.
Amidst Dango’s alternative offerings — the CR-01 Chrono, and DV-01 Dive — the TK-01 TREK stands out as the company’s most outdoor-focused piece, offering would-be buyers an aesthetically-efficient sapphire crystal, luminescent dial, and Swiss Ronda movement, all housed within a durable 45mm 316L Stainless Steel case. A premium Horween leather strap and stainless steel buckle adorn the watch’s exterior; but, as is the case with most of Dango’s offerings, the inclusion of a patented, interchangeable lug system provides consumers with the ability to remove, replace, and outfit their wristwear with bespoke alternatives. If you’re interested in acquiring your own modular field watch, head to Dango’s website, where you can pick up the Nato band TK-01 TREK for $175, or the aforementioned TREK Leather for $200.
