It was a coincidental meeting halfway around the world that inspired the idea for Daniel Wellington. On this trip, their founder, Filip Tysander, met an intriguing British gentleman with impeccable yet understated style. The man had a particular fondness for wearing his vintage watches on old, weathered NATO straps. His name? Daniel Wellington.
After returning from his travels, Filip sat down and began to look at different samples and colour ways. It was important that he loved the watch himself, or he could never sell it and be proud of it. Slowly but surely, a beautiful watch emerged. It was thin, elegant and perfectly round. A testament to minimalistic Scandinavian design, with the precision and accuracy of a Japanese movement watch.
This classic yet refreshingly crisp design can mix and match seamlessly with colourful NATO straps, the smart leather straps and the beautifully crafted mesh straps. The Daniel Wellington style will appeal to almost everyone with a taste for classic and timeless design.
