Default On the porch today - Dan Henry 1970

I'm not qualified to write a review but wanted to share a few pics of my newest watch.

The rubber strap is ridiculously soft and supple compared to others I own. The inner rotating bezel isn't easily read from all angles but looks cool in person and well, I won't be diving much with it... well... ever.

Very happy with it overall.

Very nice.

I liked the 1970 as soon as I laid eyes on it.

Thanks for the photos.

Nice looking watch, congrats! I'm a sucker for orange, the casework and engraving look really good too.

Yes and surprisingly it took just under one week to arrive (NJ to Seattle). It was in a black knurled plastic cylinder, housing a leather wrap to hold the watch and two straps.

That's a nice looking piece and the price is right. So many Super-Compressor style watches out nowadays. I'd really like to get an original, I've actually looked at a few. But, as I understand it, it's next to impossible to find parts for them if they need repair.

I like the looks of this one and just ordered the grey dial to try out.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
