We love introducing you to affordable watch brands and what they have to offer to your wrists. So today, we’ll be shining the spotlight on Dan Henry watches.
About Dan Henry Watches
Dan Henry Watches is a watch company that was founded in 2016. It was established by, you guessed it, a man by the name of Dan Henry. Dan was a chap whose vintage watch collection was 1,500 strong.
He sourced these watches from flea markets and local auctions and eventually, his watch-loving friends asked him to start sourcing watches for their collections too. One day, he decided to open up an Instagram account to proudly display his watches and this led to him starting his own watch blog called Timeline Watch.
Before he knew it, Dan, this fairly regular watch enthusiast, had become the person other people turned to for advice and information on all things related to vintage watches. He couldn’t source enough watches to keep up with the demand and so he decided to create his own vintage-inspired watch brand. Thus, the microbrand Dan Henry was born and the horologist community was thrilled.
