Our ode to the 1960's
The 1960s was a decade of incredible achievements, including the first moon landing and the rise of television. It was also the time when chronograph watches gained popularity among watch enthusiasts, who saw their icons in motorsports using them as their go-to watch to take lap times and calculate speed. Moreover, when Buzz Aldrin stepped on the moon, it was a chronograph on his wrist.
Our KVANTUM series is a tribute to this important aera of human history, all wrapped in an elegant Danish minimalist design, that trancends space and time.

From top to bottom
The front of the KVANTUM is wrapped in scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which is surpassed in hardness only by diamonds.
The watch case is made of AISI 316L surgical steel and features unique details, such as a mix of satin-brushed and polished finishes that create contrast and an exclusive look.
KVANTUM is equipped with the mechanical Seiko VK64 meca-quartz movement.
The VK64 movement combines the best of both worlds – a quartz module for the main functions of the watch and a mechanical module for operating the chronograph.
This can be seen on the second chronograph hand, which has a smooth sweeping motion and a fly-back reset function.
KVANTUM is available with Italian-made full-grain leather straps or a stainless-steel bracelet. The straps come with a quick-release mechanism, allowing you to easily change the look without using any tools.

We are proud of our Danish design heritage, which is the source of inspiration behind our designs.
We strive to create unique timepieces with a classic yet timeless design that will stand the test of time. Our design philosophy is rooted in the 1920’s “Bauhaus” design philosophy, where form follows function.
In our opinion, a great design is not purely limited to aesthetics.
That is why we only use high-quality materials, such as sapphire crystal, in our products– instead of cheaper and less durable alternatives, like mineral glass.
We are a small family-run Danish micro brand with a global reach.
Our passion is to bring something new to the table - to create timepieces with a unique aesthetic, solidly rooted in our Danish design heritage.
We often say “We do not do homages” and it is a rule we live by every day in our design disciplines. We strongly believe in order to bring something new to a century old industry, we genuinely have to think outside the box: whether that being new dial layouts, case shapes, materials or manufacturing methods.
The name “Henry Archer” is a direct translation of the name of our founder and product designer Henrik Schødt, who comes from a background in the 3D- and product-visualization industry, where he has spent close to two decades working for some of the worlds biggest brands.
Our design philosophy is rooted in the 1920’s “Bauhaus” design philosophy, where form follows function.
To this very day these are keywords that are the pillars of the world famous “Scandinavian minimalism” that has influenced architecture and many other industries around the world.
In our view, a great design comes from using clean lines and pure geometric forms.
All of the above allows the design to “breathe” and bring out the surface finishing and materials used.
