In keeping with its founders' Scandinavian roots, Skagen offers minimalist yet striking timepieces that effortlessly fuse form and function. The brand is named after a small port town in Denmark with a tranquil atmosphere. The spirit of the town is seen in the brand's aesthetic, which is minimalistic and imbued with the beauty of nature.
Skagen's less-is-more design philosophy sets this brand apart, with a focus on mindful design and craftsmanship over embellishment. From the Signatur collection to the women's Anita and men's Hagen timepieces, the brand's minimalist watches excellently complement the attire for any occasion. Designed with the wearer in mind, Skagen has watches with interchangeable stainless steel mesh and leather straps for a quick look update, making them both versatile and alluring.
From one timepiece collection to the next, Skagen stays true to its philosophy of versatility in simplicity and "good design for better living." This contemporary brand believes that form inherently complements function, rather than being mutually exclusive. The ethos is that understated design with minimal embellishment is better suited to everyday life. That viewpoint can be found in a lightweight, slim case that won't weigh you down or catch on your sleeve, a comfortable strap, or a large, fuss-free face that is easy to read at a glance.
Primarily known for its collection of stainless steel mesh watches, Skagen timepieces also come with straps in a rainbow of saturated colors. The watches' no-nonsense, mindfully designed aesthetic makes them ideal pieces to wear with just about anything. Many Skagen watches offer additional versatility with a quick-release pin construction on the strap, making it easy to interchange straps according to your tastes or outfit of the day.
Aside from leather and stainless steel, the brand has also expanded its materials portfolio with its use of titanium. With its 40 mm titanium case, fixed titanium bezel, and a unique rectangular day-and-date display, the Melbye Grey Dial is a truly handsome timepiece. The Hagen collection features a series of leather-strap watches in tan, brown, dark green, and black, each with varying minimalist dial styles.
The Signatur collection, which features watches for both men and women, comes equipped with clean and uncluttered sandblasted dials. The men's Signatur watch dials are marked with linear indexes for the hours and dot indexes for the minutes, giving it a quirky-cool feel. The women's Signatur watches are refined and low key. The classic look of the Signatur Gold Dial women's watch lends it a timeless quality, with a three-hand movement in matte black that beautifully contrasts with the gold dial.
Skagen has always been driven by a desire to create simple, refined, and versatile pieces. Its watches are understated and elegant, staying true to the brand's philosophy of "less is more," reflecting the quiet beauty of the Danish landscape that has inspired Skagen's designs since its inception.
