Dan Henry 1964 Gran Turismo chronograph
The Dan Henry 1964 GT chronograph: a tribute to an era of racing timepieces
Your Dan Henry 1964 GT chronograph was created to honor to the great chronographs of motor racing’s most daring age. At Le Mans, Monza, and the other legendary racing circuits of the world, these rugged timepieces were seen on the wrists of a generation of superbly talented and fearless drivers.
Your Dan Henry 1964 GT is equipped with the Seiko VK63 meca-quartz 60-minute chronograph with tachymeter scale and 24 hours indicator sub-dial.
What is a “meca-quartz chronograph? Meca-quartz is a hybrid design: in a meca-quartz chronograph, the timekeeping functions are controlled by a battery-powered quartz movement, while the stopwatch functions of the chronograph are recorded by a mechanical module that is also powered by the battery.
Meca-quartz movements have been used for four decades in the most rugged and reliable chronographs. The Seiko movement in your Dan Henry 1964 GT chronograph is a direct descendant of the first meca-quartz movements used in premier chronographs.
