    Fantastic interview. I’m visiting regularly the website Timeline Watch Collection and always admiring Dan Henry’s amazing watches. Now, listening him, expressing his enthusiasm how he got the collection, reading, exploring, hunting at flea markets, buying and trading… I need to say that he is really an art collector, in the form of watches. I will buy some Dan Henry’s watches, for sure. They look as vintage and are quite beautiful.

    Very interesting and insightful. His website is amazing and worthy of envy – you simply cannot do what he does here in the States – so 99.9% of his collection will remain a pipe dream! Dan is a real gentleman and very approachable. He’d offered me some very solid and pragmatic advice recently that made me reconsider a (horological) path I was going down. Thanks W&W for another job well done (and for not asking the interviewee to “tell us who you are…” there is no worse way to start an interview). Peace.

    Thanks for this interview. Dan is a great guy with a vision for those of us who love wearing and owning timepieces but don’t have tens of thousands for dollars to invest in vintage watches.

    A very interesting view on ‘homage’ and design aspect oh DH, and also big-brand design similarities. And one that’s easy to agree with, tbh. There definitely is a “retro” common style to watches, and in last few years, Baselworld, one can see that the big brands also know that they have to dip into that era.

    Also, Dan’s idea that modern watches are not designed to show time, but are designed to show money – so true!
