The Henry Story began with two young, successful fashion designers exploring London’s many vintage districts searching for inspiration.

On one such visit to the famous Portobello Road street market in London’s Notting Hill, one of them came across and old beautifully styled classic, Swiss wristwatch which had the words ‘Henry, August 1965’ enigmatically engraved on the case back. Although suffering the ravages of time, the watch still typified the craftsmanship and quality of a bygone age. She just had to wear it.
Meeting up with her partner later that day, he loved the watch every bit as much as she did. Again, he was inspired by the attention to detail only found in high end, luxury watches. He just had to wear it.
With both of them wanting to wear this priceless possession, the couple started to think about the possibilities of recreating Henry’s watch for today’s generation…The Henry collection is the result of meticulous research, culminating in a perfect marriage of the technical with the aesthetic.
Without compromising on the style and design which originally inspired them, the designers of Henry have utilised cutting-edge technology to create watches with a level of precision and reliability which far exceeds that of their mid-century predecessors.
The first Henry collection, entitled ‘Wilson’, is create to follow traditional styling with cases ranging from a 25mm three-hand model, through to a 41mm chronograph, all designed to suit todays consumer.
