Just a few months back, we had the pleasure of introducing you to the Dan Henry collection of watches. This suite of watches took us by surprise. A total of four different models, each coming in two variations, were named after years from which they pulled their designs. Homages of sorts, some had very clear references while others were more esoteric, referring to peculiar watches that the eponymous brand owner had collected over the years. The most surprising and perhaps enticing part? Their prices. Throughout the collection, DH maintained very approachable prices, bringing these interesting and iconic designs back into the world.
Of the models we initially wrote about one really stood out to me, so I wanted to spend some more time with it. The 1947 model at $190, is the most affordable of the Dan Henrys, and while a time-only quartz, might punch higher than the rest in design and finish. This watch is all about the dial, which to my eyes is easily one of the best executed dials of recent memory.
