Launched in October 2015 by two young designers, Henry London is quite a new brand but they already have many different ranges of watches, always with elegant colors and classic shapes.
They also think of the ladies, since the quantity of watches intended for the female wrists is impressive.
The whole brand is inspired by a vintage Swiss watch found at Portobello market in London. This watch had “Henry, August 1965” engraved on the case back – hence the name of the brand « Henry London« , and why also they offer a personalized engraving service.
Each watch is designed with meticulous care, synonymous of the 60’s era in which the inspiration came.
Their collection is inspired by this vintage style and perfectly combines traditional styling with modern trends. Yes indeed, and that’s a fact, Henry London is a Fashion brand and we can’t say it differently.
Since its creation Henry London proposes watches with Japanese Miyota Quartz movement and that’s quite logical as they are a fashion brand and so they needed the appropriate price point to enter in this highly competitive market.
So what, you’re in need of some style inspiration for next summer and autumn? Well we have some good news for you.
As the original watch had a mechanical movement it was only a matter of time before the London based brand explored the automatic avenue.
This new range of watches utilises Japanese Miyota 82S0 automatic movement, which is already well known for its reliability, efficiency and which is well adapted to semi-skeletons pieces. You can find this movement in the first timepiece created by Griffin Emblem.
This movement is housed in a polished and brushed stainless steel case whom sizes are ranging from 40-42mm and every watch has a double domed mineral glass in order to align the whole design with the original watch.
This really sober curved dial with baton indexes, logo at 12 o’clock and open heart at 7, offers a perfect visibility.
Henry London has chosen traditional and classic colour with rose gold, gold and stainless steel which are paired with black and tan straps (and apparently a stainless steel bracelet will be also available).
At the moment they are still finalising the final range, so unfortunately we can’t show you all the models but of course we will come back on this later.
These vintage looking watches are due to launch in August 2017 with a starting retail price of £200 (around 250$ USD), which is not bad for a stylish and automatic piece like this one.
To conclude, I think that Henry London represents the very essence of the English capital. A mix of old and new, and above all … a style.
