    Ooh like the look of those. Will be good to see some real world photos. Pricing seems very reasonable.

    Agreed, nice looking watch. Liking the 39mm size. Very tempting for the money

    Guess these are modelled on the UG Evil Nina.

    They do look great it's fair to say.

    I ordered the blue one last night at a very reasonable £208.

    I've got the DH 1972 (similar to the Porsche Orfina) too, and I've been very pleased with the quality so I'm hoping this will be the same!

    Never thought I'd be tempted by a Dan Henry(mainly for the reason than I seriously dislike the name), but I am seriously tempted here.

    Would be a tough choice between the panda and reverse panda. I'm thinking probably Evil Nina.....

    Such a shame that this, like most modern chronographs, is so chunky ... those of yesteryear were much more streamlined and cuff/doorframe friendly ... :-)

    It was hard to choose between the Panda and the Evil Panda, but went for the Panda in the end.
    Will post a pic when it arrives!

    I saw this yesterday, looks like a great buy. I particularly like the white panda dial.

    The 'Nina Rindt' is just about the perfect looking watch IMO.

    I'm nervous about anything that could lead to more people becoming interested in UG but I can see why this one might be popular.



    I don't like, however, the way they've allowed some Paul Newman fonts to creep in on the sub-dials.

    haha, i know, technically it's reverse panda, but Dan Henry calls them Evil Panda...a term which I think is amazing.

    That white dial might just satisfy my urge for a white faced Speedmaster at considerably less cost. I like.

    My thoughts exactly!
    ...probably not thought, i don't think that urge can ever be satisfied unless you give in to temptation

    Itís good that someone posted the Universal otherwise I would have thought you can mix up a Speedmaster with a vintage Daytona and get away with it...

    Can I ask why?

    For £770 I could buy the 62 and both versions of the 72. That has to be fantastic VFM!

    If I could see past the 'Dan Henry' I'd probably buy one, just come up with a chuffing logo!

    Thanks

    Big thanks to the OP for the heads up. Must admit to not taking much notice of Dan Henry before, as I basically just assumed it was a Michael Korrs/Armani type brand. This is a gorgeous thing though and for the money I couldnít resist the panda dial. Although, anything called an Evil Panda takes some ignoring!

    Ordered the blue today, been thinking about the 1964 for a while but this one appeals to me so much more and 39mm should be a great fit.

    Like the look of those, the case looks less 'chunky' than some.
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    Too small, at least for me. Chrono under 41 is a no-go, but hey, we all have different styles. I like the looks and the price

    Thanks OP, these look fantastic for the money, well pretty fantastic full stop. I'd only be worried that I would be wearing one and someone actually called Dan Henry would ask about it!

    Indeed, it definitely needs a small discreet logo at the top and that's it.
    With the massive name makes it look like some cheap mainstream watch (Daniel Wellington etc.)

    They are cheap and probably have a desire to be mainstream. Daniel Wellington is hugely successful and no doubt Dan Henry wouldnít mind similar success.

    I know it is relatively cheap, but I would only likely to be trying g to see if I like the style before moving on. Would I be likely to get say £150 back if I sold in a few month?

    Interesting.

    How good would a 36mm have been though?

    Good enough for me to get over the Dan Henry legend on the dial I think.

    Top marks for offering non date versions though.

    39mm is too large to tempt me unfortunately.

    its nice - and yes I may purchase one. Couple of questions though - why is it dearer than his other models - is there something different about this one? Secondly does anyone know of a bracelet option that could complete the look. Leather is fine and all but sometimes, well you just want a bracelet.....

    So has anyone who ordered one of these actually received it yet? Ordered at launch and confirmation offered shipping within 5 days. Yet to be shipped, getting slightly nervous.
