Dan Henry's 1972 Alarm Chronograph

Post by AtomicTom » Fri Nov 09, 2018 10:35 am

Here is one for all of you Dan Henry fans, and everyone else too guys.

The new 1972 Alarm Chronograph is limited to 28 numbered watches made
for the Wind-Up Watch Show. But will have a regular run of 1,972 too. With
details including a 41mm stainless steel case, or PVD steel case, 100m WR,
sapphire crystal, black dials with eye-catching accents, along with luminous
markers, and hands, a quartz movement, and nice bracelet.

Have a couple pictures...

Yes, very similar to the 144 too:

But even closer to the PD.

So, it's a simultaneous ripoff of multiple watches. Are some of those ripoff's as well then? I'm always curious where the line is drawn for some folks.

I think the Worn & Worn article intro does a nice job of setting the stage for these: https://wornandwound.com/first-look-dan ... ronograph/ . No longer produced by anyone today and it's very clear that this isn't an original idea.

Personally I like the black one, not sure I'd buy it or that it would stick if I did :)

Any preference between the two? PVD looked well applied?

I like the black one, but always wonder how that bracelet would look after a few months of wearing it ... probably scratched all to hell :shrug:

Honestly no idea. Since it is according to how the manufacture did the black coating. On know on the Aegir I had the black finish took a beating with no issues.

Yeah, that makes sense. Most of my bracelets show a lot of scratches and marks though two of them are Ti so probably softer. I'd be worried, still at $350 new and who knows what used, I may still pick one up if I get a chance to check it out. Not a lot of money :)
