Once upon a time France was well-known for its watchmakers. They bustled on the Ile de cite, harrumphed through the royal palaces, and generally acted like self-appointed protectors of French science. Now? Not so much. That said, they’re coming back and Lord Henry Watches is here to herald in the new age.
Lord Henry is designed in Cannes, France and features the standard three hand configuration in multiple metals for about 200 euro. The watches come in multiple colors and styles and all have a seconds hand at six o’clock and a bold, handwritten logo up top. It’s water resistant to 5ATM and runs a Small Second Quartz movement from Seiko.
One watch with three straps costs about $215 on Kickstarter and they’re shipping in February. They’re raising $24,000 and they’ve already hit their goal. The pieces are unisex so you can turn your Lord Henry into a Lady Henrietta. Sacre bleu!
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
