I just one minute you can read this Daniel Wellington watch review, but let’s first just see what makes a Daniel Wellington watch stand out.
The first thing you should consider when thinking about a Daniel Wellington watch is that it came about in a particularly interesting way. In fact, the story of the watch is so interesting that you may want to read about it. And just to wet your appetite, let’s have a look at the main points. You see, The Daniel Wellington Watch is not an old watch that has been about for decades. No, it is a new watched, but it’s based on old principles. Not least old principles of style.
It was the style conscious Swede Filip Tysander who started the Daniel Wellington watch company, and he did this after meeting a British gentleman called Daniel Wellington. This Brit had the habit of wearing his watch with a NATO-band. In case you don’t know what a NATO-band is let me tell you that it is those red, white and blue stripe textile bands that are floating about since the 1970s. A truly British invention. Well, it was such a band that Daniel Wellington wore.
And it was this style choice that blew Tysander’s mind. It actually started some thought processes that made the Swede go off and start a watch company. And that is how Daniel Wellington, the watch company, was born (not Daniel Wellington the man, of course). The idea is sensational, as now you may buy your watch case just one time only, and simply add bands or straps to your collection so that you may change the way you look. This opens up many, many possibilities. You may like colorful textile bands, well then you get a whole bunch of those. Yellow seems to be popular with the Italians. But for that occasion where you need more discretion, simply change the band, and you’re good to go.
Daniel Wellington watch review
I particularly like the Daniel Wellington Dapper collection. And my personal choice at the moment is the Durham. Named after that proud, northern city of England, the Durham leather strap is perfect for most occasions. It is a lighter shade of brown, which lifts the spirit particularly well. Stylish, yet light, which is exactly the kind of style I’m looking for in this Daniel Wellington watch review.
