    Impulse purchase

    I was surfing a second hand website this morning when I came accross a nice piece which could fill a spot on my watch box. I thought it was ticking several boxes: chronograph, Panda dial, vintage look, micro brand and very affordable. Too good to let it go....

    3 hours later I had arranged an appointment with the owner and after the office I met him and completed the deal! Fastest watch I’ve ever bought! Dan Henry 1964, with extra bracelet and travel pouch accessories.

    here it is on a NATO:

    And on the rice grain bracelet:

    I think it will look very nice on a light brown bracelet...so far it fits within my current primary box:

    It has been a total impulse purchase, buy maybe buying these sort of very affordable pieces this is the only therapy to calm down the watch addict beast...

    Dan Henry seems to be pretty popular these days, and it’s a very attractive watch. I’ll be interested to see how it plays out long-term as part of your collection....which, by the way, is brilliant. Enjoy!

    Congratulations on a successful find. The LE 1964 Gran Turismo Chronograph should make a fine addition to your watch box.

    An odd addition to that collection. One of them is definitely not like the others.

    "Affordable" just means you end up spending the same amount of money, but end up with a greater number of watches. -MandoBear

    I agree it is quite different from the others, but that’s what’s nice about it. I think I will enjoy it.

    I would’prefer a vintage Heuer chronograph, but the hunting time and money invested would not be the same!

    Dan Henry watches are some of the most visually compelling microbrands on the current market. Good selection. Enjoy it.

    Get the Heuer. It’s inevitable. That DH just doesn’t fit in.
