A new Dan Henry drop is always a big deal and today we’re excited to announce that we have an exclusive on a LE version of his newest model, the 1972. First unveiled last weekend at Windup Watch Fair NYC 2018, the 1972 is a barrel-cased chronograph that draws closely from the famed Porsche Orfina German military chronographs. A cult classic, the design is austere, highly-legible, unique and incredibly stylish. As part of the launch, we have 20 of these watches, 10 in steel and 10 in black, with special markings on the back commemorating the 2018 NYC Windup Watch Fair, available here.
For the Dan Henry 1972 they stayed very true to the original in spirit, with a 41mm case available in matte PVD black or steel, graphic dial with tachymeter scale and H-link bracelet. The dial features a new sandwich construction, which adds an element of depth to the dial as well as an alarm function. Quite the uncommon complication, the 1972 uses the Miyota OS80 Quartz movements, which features an alarm that is easily set and has an on/off indicator at 7.5, as well as a dedicated on/off switch at 8.
Flipping the watch over, you will be delighted with one of Dan Henry’s signature relief case-backs. This time featuring an elaborate motorcycle with incredible detailing, even including visible spokes on the wheels.
On the wrist, the 1972 wears exceptionally well. 41mm diameter and under 46mm lug-to-lug means it will fit a variety wrists. The 13mm height is comfortable, and the H-link bracelet has a cool look. This is a watch to wear with leather jackets, jeans, and boots. It has got a masculine harshness to it but is pleasantly understated as well.
With only 20 in these special versions of the 1972 available, they are going to go fast so make a move on it. $350, available now.
