here are som more pictures of the watches, tell us what you think :)
The dial of Henry Blake is easy to read. The indexes and hands are topped off with strongluminescence, which is pleasing during the day and gives great visibility at night.
Everywatch features a 316L Stainless Steel case and buckle, and it’s up to you to decide whatcolours and combinations you want. Since the leather straps are so easy to replace, youcan have a variation of straps and mix it up how you like!
Thanks for the feedback, we are going to make the logo smaller when we put in production for kickstarter and full production.
Hope you stick around flvinny521

We have been and visited the factories we use and these factories produce for major luxury brands. We started by visiting over 20 different factories and ordered prototype of 5 of them. We ended up choosing the factory we have now because of their quality to details and how they treat their employees (this is really important for us, since we are Norwegian company).
We have contacted the factory again to create new prototypes with smaller logo.
Here are som more pictures, we hope you like our products
I want to tell our story, why I started Henry Blake and what has been my greatest inspiration
When I started Henry Blake in 2015, I had an idea to create a watch I could wear myself, and make it accessible to everyone else like me around the world.
It was a challenging task, since I am of the discerning type and wanted good craftsmanship and quality in every detail. I also wanted a design that stands out from the crowd and that is viable over time. Just like our office chairs from Eames, which has had the same design since 1960.
I've always had a great interest in design, interior and fashion.
When I think of good design, I think of product that not only looks good aesthetically but also fulfills its purpose. Producing minimalist design is the most complicated task for a designer.
My interest in design began with architectural design.
As founder of Norway's largest magazine for architectural and construction I had the pleasure to meet many talented architects, and I have always been fascinated by their ability to create solutions that stand out and works.
This is some of the covers of the magazine Fremtidens Byggenæring that i started back in 2007.
Im very fond of interior and especially brands like Eames, USM Haller and Cassina. Sitting or looking at Eames chair or Cassina Corbusier you will notic the quality and craftsmanship.

Astrup Fearnley Museum
I remember when I met the Italian architect Renzo Piano after he designed the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, listning on him talking about design and architecture as well as the creation of something new.

Such things fascinates me and has been the inspiration to start Henry Blake.

That is what we feel we have achieved with Henry Blake. Several of our test subjects also believe the same thing! Just take a look here:
A Watch That Turns Heads
”Henry Blake is the perfect accessory: a smart, sharp look without being too flashy. It has already gotten a ton of comments from friends and strangers.”
Barbara, New York
”Feels great on my wrist, with great design and materials. Perfect!”
Luis B., Madrid
Aside for its beauty and uniqueness of design, the watch has a great quality and exclusive materials. We have gathered all of these components into a watch and made it available to our fans at a starting price of 149 USD on Kickstarter.
Other brands might offer some of the same components offered below, but not all the features.
We have not cut back anywhere and that's what makes us unique:

We will put the watches on Kickstarter very soon.
The first pieces of Henry Blake will be limited edition pieces and individually numbered. In Norway we say "førstemann til mølla”, roughly translating to first backed, first served. This means that the earlier backers will get lower numbers.
