The Dan Henry 1937 Dress Chronograph is a tribute to the cosmopolitan Art Deco style of the 1930s when watches such as these were worn by stylish New Yorkers from Rockefeller Center to Wall Street. The 1937 Dress Chronograph recalls timepieces that combined sophisticated elegance with the modern-age trendsetting of the decade.
In an era when New York witnessed the construction of its biggest Deco icon, the Empire State Building, travelers of the 1930s would journey on the most famous railroad line of the day: the 20th-Century Limited, powered by the iconic streamlined locomotives of the New York Central Railroad. – DH
