A couple of days back, Daniel Wellington released Dapper 34mm along with the newest strap color, Durham. Daniel Wellington gifted me with this newest design, Dapper Durham 34mm, and I wanted to review it on my blog today. 

So here''s my Daniel Wellington Dapper Durham 34mm that came all the way from Sweden to Korea. (These links are affiliate links. Thank you in advance if you choose to support me and use the link to make your purchase!)

Here's something I feel necessary to comment about this Durham strap. When I first saw Durham online, I immediately fell in love with this ivory-brown strap and knew I had to have it in my life. I was very excited about this strap, but was extremely disappointed when I first received it in mail--my initial reaction was that I got the wrong watch! 

As you can see from the top left photo, the strap I received was a medium brown shade, not a light ivory-brown strap. Interestingly enough, when I bent the strap I noticed the color of the strap lightens (see the top middle photo). The more I bent the strap, the lighter it got! I love the vintage feel that this strap gives, and just adore this strap so much! Forget the initial disappointment!

I've only wore this watch for a day and although the strap color is not uniform yet, I believe it to lighten more (and to be honest, I like it the way it is!)

In the photo below, the darkest color is the initial color of the strap, and it gets lighter with wear.

This is my third Daniel Wellington watch: The first one was Classic York 36mm, the second Dapper St Mawes 38mm (reviewed here).  I adored Dapper 38mm especially because of the blue hand, but it was a bit too large for my wrist and looked way better on my boyfriend (so it's his now). Imagine how happy I was to hear that Daniel Wellington released Dapper in 34mm! 

As Dapper St Mawes 38mm is with my boyfriend and since we are in long-distance relationship, I do not have it with me to compare. So here's a quick comparison with Classic 36mm (you can see a comparison between Classic 36mm and Dapper 38mm here). 

As you can see from the photo below, Dapper 34mm is a bit smaller than Classic 36mm, and honestly I like the 34mm size more as I find it to look more feminine!

I've been wearing Classic York 36mm for the past couple of years, but have been wearing Dapper Durham 34mm nonstop since getting it in the mail! As I mentioned numerous times in the Dapper 38mm review, the design of Dapper (oh my goodness the blue hand) is too beautiful. It looks gorgeous with every outfit, and it gives such a classy and feminine vibe that I cannot get enough. The straps for Daniel Wellington watches can be replaced (with that in matching size) and I would highly recommend Durham to anyone who already owns Daniel Wellington watches! I believe that Durham will look amazing on any skin tone, and it is too gorgeous to pass.

  1. Hi! I'm so glad I found your blog, because I was having the hardest time choosing between the Dapper 34mm and 38mm. If only there was a Dapper 36mm! But based on your review, 34mm sounds just right for me. What a gorgeous and versatile piece. :)
