Here’s a cracking compressor cased diver from Dan Henry called, the 1970.

It has a brushed 316L Stainless steel case measuring 44mm, a lug-lug measurement of 50.5mm and an inside lug width of 24mm.

Divers features include: screw-down caseback, an inner rotatable divers bezel operable via the crown at 2 o’clock and a water-resistance of 200m.

Special features include: cross-hating on the crowns, a Sapphire coated double domed mineral crystal with anti-reflective treatment and a caseback with a 3D Scaphtopus medal.

Power comes from an automatic Seiko Caliber NH35 with 24 jewels and a power reserve of 41hrs. Time and date adjustments are made via the crown at 4 o’clock.

There are two versions available – one all black and the other black with an orange chapter-ring.

The Dan Henry 1970 comes on a tropic-style silicone divers strap priced 250USD. It is Limited to 1970 pieces.

For 250USD this is a pretty nice watch. I’m especially digging the caseback engraving with the Octopus wearing the divers helmet – so cool!



  1. Just to correct your statement about the two crowns .... Both crowns are not screw-down.
