In just eight years, Swedish brand Daniel Wellington has gone from a modest watchmaker to one of the best-selling quartz markers in the UK. Its widespread appeal has earned global recognition, with designs worn by celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner.

Here, we tell you about the brand's origins and showcase some of our favourite designs, so you can join the high fashion ranks by adding a Daniel Wellington watch to your complete your look.

The Daniel Wellington story

It all started when founder Filip Tysander bumped into an intriguing British gentleman with immaculate style on a trip abroad. Wearing a vintage watch with a weathered NATO strap, Tysander was captivated by his style - so much so, that it inspired him to create his own range of watches.

The watches are a key player on the minimalist fashion scene and interchangeable straps make up a major part of the brand's DNA - ideal for switching up styles when you fancy a change.

Today, Daniel Wellington is a leader in the mid-range market, admired for its classic styling and thin bracelets.
