just stumbled across their site a bit ago.

 

https://danhenrywatch.com/

 

lots of looks inspired by famous watches. basically homage watches. but the prices are pretty awesome.

 

 

 

ended up buying the 1963. Should be here in a few day.

 

I'll keep everyone posted and post some pics when it arrives.

They look a whole lot nicer than the usual run-of-the-mill budget micro-brand. Interesting...

looks a decent homage and his story seems to tie up nicely

 

the extras (watch roll, quick release & straps) are a decent touch

 

quite thick @ 14mm for a quartz but I think it is something I fancy

love the blackbird too

Beautiful Gen watches with two straps and a case for less than $250! How much is a Noob sub again?

Oh some marketing guy did very well indeed crafting the back story to this brand and its "owner".

No one believes a word of it, right?

 

Nice watches but I bet they turn out to be over priced Chinese made tat.

And sure enough the domain is registered to a Dan Schrieber (not Henry) at a 5th Avenue NY, NY address which is an apartment block. As I said re-branded Chinese tat. Brilliant piece of marketing tho, the spiel for each watch says he an advertising copywriter or one of his mates is. The '39 and the '70 ain't a bad look but I'd rather have a mechanical at that price point in Chinese watch. I'm sure if you look the same thing is on Ali for 60 bucks with a different branding. That's a lot of money fr a watch roll . . .

Just looked at the story section now. Their timeline website is pretty cool if you want to kill sone time with a bit of watch porn...

Interesting you say overpriced though when for less than a seiko diver you can get a Dan Henry diver with a seiko auto movement + the leather watch roll. Where most of the microbrand clique would want 30-50% more than the equivalent seiko.... Guess they are made in China but judging from the review pics I wouldn't call them tat

If I didn't have an LLD, I would be all over that compressor.

And honestly, with the price paid for certain reps I don't think 250$ is over paid. What do you get under that price????
