Daniel Wellington watches were originally inspired by a chance meeting between founder Filip Tysander and the British gentleman Daniel Wellington. Tysander was struck by Wellington's impeccable sense of style and in particular his habit of wearing vintage watch faces on classic, weathered NATO straps. The first spark of an idea was ignited and would soon become the iconic Daniel Wellington watch brand.
The quintessentially British design features a simple, elegant and unencumbered watch face that can be moved across a variety of interchangeable NATO and leather watch straps, resulting in a versatile piece that can be worn in any way on any day of the week. The striped NATO strap was pioneered by the British navy more than 40 years ago and is featured here in a range of colours. Alternatively, the genuine leather straps with silver or rose gold plate take the watch up a notch in terms of formality.
