It was a time for breaking records on earth. Cars and motorcycles were getting faster, and supersonic flights were more accessible; the Concorde generation was born. In the 1970’s watches became super-watches, with intense emphasis on their engineering. It was a time when engineers became designers, as they created watches born for measurement with craftsmanship and precision and this timepiece is a celebration of this iconic era of design and engineering.

Great to look at, the Dan Henry 1972 Chrono Alarm Watch comes in a number of different styles and each has a large, high-contrast dial and minimalist design. The movement of this exceptional watch deliver an array of complications: an alarm, and chronograph that can measure up to 12-hours, and intervals of 1/10 second measurements. Engraved on the back you’ll find the profile of the Ducati 750 Imola Desmo motorcycle – a tribute to a racing machine that defined speed with elegance in the 1970s. The 41mm stainless steel case of the 1972 in available in your choice of matte or black PVD. With its sapphire crystal, the Dan Henry 1972 is the ultimate tool watch and will turn heads everywhere you go.
