It's incredible to think that the Daniel Wellington story began as a result of a meeting between a British gentleman of that very name and Filip Tysander, the eventual founder of the company behind these classy and timeless watches. Tysander was inspired by Wellington's genteel, but unpretentious manner and love of watches worn on old weathered NATO straps. Sure enough, these were all qualities that would come to define this now-iconic watch brand.
With a broad assortment of timepieces bearing NATO and leather straps and named after distinguished British cities including Glasgow, Cambridge, Nottingham and York, it is clear that Daniel Wellington takes its British inspirations to heart. From the elegant NATO strap that has its origins in the British navy, to the beautifully designed and developed watch face, everything about a Daniel Wellington watch speaks to the needs of the leisurely British gentleman.
