The History of Mens and Ladies Skagen Watches

SKAGEN is a small and picturesque fishing village in the heart of Scandinavia, near the northern-most tip of the Danish peninsula known as Jutland. Here the perfect purity and beauty explain where Danish design found its unique qualities, and where the international company Skagen Designs found its name.

 

The small village on the edge of the sea continues to be the inspiration for all Skagen watches. In 1987, Henrik and Charlotte Jorst went to the United States from their native Denmark to follow a dream.  And that dream was of owning and running their own business. Skagen Designs was the business that developed and was founded by these two natives of Copenhagen on the principle that beautifully designed, high-quality objects can be created at reasonable prices. The Skagen watches collection reflects the Jorsts’ creative Danish spirit with clean, elegant designs, skilful craftsmanship and technical perfection. When you purchase a piece from the Skagen Collection, you become part of an international community of Skagen owners who believe in a philosophy of design and manufacturing excellence. A community who share those base values upon which the Skagen brand was founded.

 

The typical iconic Skagen watches are the 233 range of stainless steel or titanium designs. With their metal mesh bracelets, they encapsulate the beauty of Skagen watches. With their ultra slimline designs, typically only 4mm thick, Skagen watches offer an elegant and affordable alternative to other overpriced designer watches. Skagen watches have a unique look and offer an extensive range for both men and ladies alike.
