I think exactly the same about the white! Not sure if $450 is a good price for the automatic version, or if I should consider the quartz.

I have a 1972. I'd say the quality is appropriate for the price, and I like it.

Thanks for the input

The white is only available in 39mm (at least the automatic version) and the lugs are 20mm, so that seems like another positive to me 馃槂

I don鈥檛 personally own a Dan Henry, but the quality of the watch is superb. Whether you want the automatic or not is up to you, the case size is excellent for most wrists regardless.

I don't know I guess it depends on budget but personally I do prefer automatics to quartz although I heard lot of positive feedback to meca-quartz so I would definitely consider that movement at some point in my collection journey

Dan Henry decided to create watches that are an amalgam of various elements that were present in watches from the year of his watch model. For example my 1962 Racing Chronograph has elements from Omega (the twisted lugs), Universal Gen猫ve (handset and dial) and Rolex Daytona (the "piston" makers in the sub registers). Therefore it gives the feeling of wearing a vintage, but without the headaches of actually owning a vintage watch.

They are not bad and they are priced affordably, they can give you a vibe of vintage but you have to be aware that you are not going to get Omega, UG or Rolex quality there.
