I don't know anything about these watches but think they both look great, for sheer elegance, I would go for the Dan Heney. Either is a good choice.

Agree ! They both looks nice, but my personal preference would be brown leather strap on the H&S. but if you like bracelets, that is an excellent looking option.

Presume they are both going to offer similar longevity for you

Sounds good

The Höglund & Sons Mark I Chronograph was created as part of a successful Kickstarter project (see link below) by Brandon Hoglund, the founder of the popular wristwatch review YouTube channel, WatchesOnYou. Given his extensive experience reviewing watches at all price points (from $50 to $500,000), he wanted to create a watch with some of the features of his favorite high-end watches, but at an affordable price. His first creation, the Höglund & Sons Mark I Chronograph, exemplifies this goal and incorporates the following unique features:

-Sweep Seconds Hand Chronograph

-Seiko VK64 Mecha-Quartz Movement

-Tachymeter Scale

-Timezone Scale

-Unit Conversion Scale

-Sapphire Crystal

-316L Stainless Steel Case

-Lumed Indices and Hands

Both watches look pretty darn good to me. However, I do not like the bracelet on the Dan Henry.

Leather strap looks better.

It's a win-win situation, regardless to what you chose here.

To answer your question though, of those two I would pick the Dan Henry piece. Can't wait to see what you end up picking

Do you have any additional info on this piece? It looks like something I might end up adding to the collection.

I would have done the same, the H&S. Panda dial = big yes!
Also not a big fan of the DH bracelet.


BTW, in the first post, I know you meant "movement," but using the abbreviation MVMT has a very different connotation.

Both look good. I've got a couple of Dan Henry watches that are still going strong after a few years, and I like that one, and its beads-of-rice bracelet. The only drawback is that the 24 subdial is a 24hr timezone indicator not a 24 hr lapsed time dial.

How are the quality in the dans?
Do they look vintage in person?
And will the beads of rice bracelet fit a large wrist

I don't know about the bracelet size, you'd have to check the website for length. Build quality is great, especially the cases. Dan H is a major vintage watch collector and really knows his designs. They look great in person, and have a nice vintage feel (the ones I've seen anyway). They seem to hold their value in resale, too, oddly enough.

This is his personal collection site: www.timeline.watch
