Daniel Wellington (stylised with a reverse capital D) is a Swedish watch company, founded in 2011 by Filip Tysander.

Headquartered in central Stockholm in Sweden, the company has different networks[clarification needed] in over 25 countries.[1]

The watches are manufactured in China, designed in Sweden and use a quartz movement made by Miyota, a Japanese company.[2]

The company has gained success through its digital strategy in social networks like Instagram.[citation needed]

In February 2017, Daniel Wellington was named the fastest growing company in Europe.[3] The company made $230 million in revenue and $111.5 million in profit in 2016.[4] The Swedish company has reported a three year growth of 4.695%. Criticism has been targeted at the brand's perceived lack of novelty and value.[5]
