Review: Daniel Wellington Watch

I’ve always loved how oversize chronograph watches look on women, but nothing matches the refined elegance of a Daniel Wellington watch. 

Before I even received the watch for review, I was taken with the story of the company’s history: 

The story behind Daniel Wellington begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be gentlemanly but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style, and loved to wear his Rolexes on old weathered Nato straps, which he’d kept from his years in the British army. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course.

I was given the "Classic St. Andrews" watch in rose gold and the style really does live up to its namesake. The large watch face (36 mm diameter) has the irreverence of wearing a men’s watch, but it’s done in a beautifully understated way. The strap already has the patina of a well-loved piece. It’s a bit rigid, but it’s starting to become more pliable with continued wear. (Which won’t be a problem, since it has already become my go-to timepiece.)
