Daniel Wellington’s range of ladies watches benefit from the same great styling and simple, elegant functionalism as their masculine variants but with a slightly smaller casing.
They are the result of a remarkable meeting in the bar of an Australian hotel between Filip Tysander, a Scandinavian entrepreneur/watchmaker, and an impeccably dressed Englishman who wore a top of the range Swiss chronograph customised with a weathered strap made of braided fabric.
Tysander was inspired to create a range of slimmed down inexpensive watches that displayed the same classical qualities, using various straps of Nato fabric, leather or the hybrid material Grace, all of which he named after British University towns.
The Englishman was of course Daniel Wellington. The company that bears his name sold its first watch in 2011 and now sells 700,000 watches plus per annum - no mean achievement and one which has reputedly made them the fastest growing company in the world.
This classic example of a Daniel Wellington watch has a white dial, silver PVD case and a York style brown leather strap - which can easily be changed using the tool provided.
