Since their start in 2016, Dan Henry has quickly become one of the highest-profile micro brands in the enthusiast community. Founded by esteemed namesake collector Dan Henry and based out of his native Brazil, the brand takes its inspiration from Henry’s extensive collection of vintage timepieces to present expressions of some of the greatest watchmaking styles of the early and mid twentieth century. While Henry himself maintains his massive archive of historic timepieces, the extreme rarity and value of some of these pieces drove him to create a brand that would make that style accessible to every enthusiast.
These pieces run the gamut from dress timepieces to pilot’s chronographs and super compressor divers, and while they each capture the essence of their various eras each design is completely unique and original. These classically-inspired pieces have caught the eye of critics and tastemakers around the world, making their way onto must-have lists in many major publications including our own.
Over the past 30 years, Dan Henry himself has become an almost mythic figure in watch collecting circles. Spanning every conceivable niche from early pocket watches to the present day, Henry’s own estimate puts the collection at roughly 1,500 pieces strong. His collection has helped to shape the vintage watch world as a whole, pioneering vintage dealing by mailing list and influencing the tastes of other collectors worldwide through his site Timeline.Watch. In creating his own brand, Henry aims to democratize the often exclusive and expensive world of classic timepieces by bringing the same style and feel to a far more accessible price point. Just like his personal collection, the Dan Henry marque is constantly evolving, creating new and exciting iterations and improvements to this already impressive lineup.
