Dan Henry Drops a New Skindiver
Noted watch collector and founder of his own eponymous watch company, Dan Henry just dropped the latest in his series of vintage-inspired watches. Called the "1975", the new timepiece is available in perhaps the most numerous variations of any watch that DH has ever released before.
Calling it their "biggest project so far", the company is making the 1975 available in 28 different variations, including:
Four dial colors.
Two bezel styles.
Two case sizes (37mm and 39mm)
Two movement options (automatic or meca-quartz).
Two strap styles.
Optional stainless steel bracelet.
As the company is wont to do, the new timepiece is also priced on the affordable side. The 37mm meca-quartz models, for example, start at only $260 USD, while a fully kitted out piece with the automatic Miyota 9015 high-beat automatic movement inside the 39mm case with the optional bracelet will run you as high as $530 - which is still very reasonable given the specs and aesthetics of the watch.
Indeed, the watch comes in as thin as 10.5mm for the meca-quartz movement in both the 37mm and 39mm models. It adds an extra 1mm for the automatic models to come in at a still-svelte 11.5mm. Additionally, there are two bezel options available, a steel one with black numbers or a sapphire one with lumed markers.
There are four colorways available for the sapphire bezel version. There are two black dial versions, one with gilt markers and hands and one with white and red markers and hands, a white dial version and an orange dial version. These are all available in version with the sapphire bezel. Those who prefer the steel bezel will not be able to get the black and gilt dial.
All models appear to be in stock and shipping quickly, so if you're looking to get one of these, you should hurry; these are limited edition watches.
