Specialised in the production of classic themed watches, Björn Hendal is a sister brand of Blancier, a highly experienced and established watch brand renowned for high-quality and creative watches, Made in Germany.
Designed and created in Sweden, Björn Hendal Watches integrate classic styles with modern Swedish design. In this article we highlight the brand’s chronograph wristwatch collection labelled New Vintage.
Timepieces from this collection are inspired by the early chronograph watches of the 1940s and 1950s. Björn Hendal watches have an appearance that is reminiscent of this period; however, they have a bigger diameter (44mm) than vintage watches. So the brand has coined the label ‘New Vintage’. This watch has a very classic but easy to change into a preppy appearance by using “easy to change” croco and lizard leather straps and the preppy nato style straps.
Dressed in a 44-mm, slim case (5 mm), this timepiece boasts a tri-compax dial lay out with three smaller sub-dials: a seconds indicator, a minutes indicator that counts up to one hour, and, unusually, a 24-hour indicator. The hands and indicators contrast very nicely with the colour of the dial.
The 22-mm quick release “Lizard” leather watch strap has an 18-carat matching gold-plated “Björn Hendal” engraved buckle.
