The New Dan Henry 1937

Post by TemerityB » July 22nd 2020, 5:22pm

Got an email from Dan Henry:

Inspired by Art Deco style, the 1937 Chronograph is my homage to the elegant urban lifestyle of the 1930s Metropolis.

The 1937 is my ninth creation, and with each model, I face new challenges. For the 1937, my biggest challenge was creating the rectangular buttons without the unattractive frame used for pushers on modern watches. A challenge of a different kind was designing the dial with its intricate yet functional details – a design even more complex than the dials we used on our sold-out 1939 Black and 1947 models.

I have included a rare detail from the past: drilled lugs, which in addition to being charming, simplify the process of changing straps (if you don’t use one of our easy-change straps). So while creating the 1937 was a particularly laborious project, I think you will find that it is worth the effort.

The 1937 Dress Chronograph is available with your choice of four dial styles and colors, and with or without the date function. Two leather straps are included with your order, and a total of six strap colors are available for additional purchase.

Dan Henry also noted in the email that there are reviews of the watch on YouTube by The Urban Gentry (who I thought was retired, but hey) and at Time + Tide.

That’s seriously fucking cool. I like the versions with the VK61 inside - the vertical layout’s a wee bit like in old Venus 170, and there’s no 24h subdial.

All I know is that I own two DH (one auto, one quartz) and they're okay. At their price points, the case work and the overall quality is about as good is gets. Ordering direct takes forever, as I recall. As for these, I do like the styling. The hands on some of the models are a nice touch.
