The essence of Danish watch design
The Skagen brand was founded in 1989, with inspiration from the Danish coastal city Skagen, where the brand has its roots. From Skagen the brand adopted its unique design aesthetique and minimalistic mindset, that in many ways represent the traditional Danish design aesthetique.

With this principle at heart, the key to every new design for Skagen, is a minimalistic approach and the ability to simplify a design to the fullest. This is why all Skagen watches have only the most essential elements incorporated, and why these elements are combined in an uncomplicated yet beautiful way. The brands unique way of looking at the design process, in combination with the use of sturdy materials and expert craftmanship, is also why the brand has become such a huge hit, both nationally and internationally.
