Daniel Wellington: Top watch brand for classic mens watches. Daniel Wellington or DW was started in 2011 by Filip Tysander who named the watch in memory of the person whose sense of style inspired him. Daniel Wellington watches are well-known for their minimalist design and thin and colorful nylon straps.

These nylon straps are based on NATO nylon straps, which were originally used in British Navy for their toughness and ease of securing the strap. The colorful nylon straps lend a chic and bold look to the Daniel Wellington watches.

Sleek leather strap models are also available. Daniel Wellington (DW) uses genuine leather of Italian quality for its straps. The leather models come in black and brown colors, and are accompanied by a gold-plated or silver buckle.

DW Watches are so designed that their straps can be easily changed; you can use the same watch with nylon or leather straps of different colors. Headquartered in Sweden, DW gets its watches made in China and the Quartz movements are orchestrated in Miyota, Japan.

The Daniel Wellington watches feature an analog dial and are available in rose gold or silver color cases. Models feature different case sizes, including 36mm and 40mm.

DW watches are devices designed to do their job with minimum fuss — a simple and clean design that suits every dress and occasion, and the convenience of battery-operated watches that do not require manual winding.

If you prefer minimalism and affordability in watches, Daniel Wellington watches should impress you.
