Watches are a subtle yet important fashion statement. With a fashion history spanning hundreds of years, the watch is the staple wrist addition for almost any occasion. Here at Belle Magazine, we are always delighted to hear about new launches. When we found out about upcoming new addition to the London watch market, Henry London, our wrists were itching to find out more. With a romantic and almost magical story behind it, the brand is set to take London by storm.
The Henry story began on a visit to the famous Portobello Road Street market in London’s Notting Hill, with two young and successful fashion designers. Search for inspiration, they came across a beautifully styled, classic Swiss wristwatch had had the words, “Henry, August 1965’ engraved on the back. With both designers wanting to wear this priceless possession, the couple thought about recreating Henry’s watch for today’s generation. It was then that Henry London was born – exactly 50 years since the original watch was created. Romantic, right?
A collection of meticulous research, Henry London has the perfect marriage of the technical with the aesthetic. TUsing cutting-edge technology to create watched with a level of precision and reliability, Henry London far exceeds that of their mid-century predecessor yet does not compromise on style and design. The collection has a traditional styling, crafted from stainless steel, while the bracelets are contructed from high quality stainless steel Milanese mesh. The fashionable yet delicate straps are made from the finest of soft leathers, carefully dyed to a bespoke palette of heritage shades.
