Swiss inspired Skagen watches were created by husband and wife team Henrik and Charlotte Jorst as a way to bring luxury Swiss watches to a wider audience. Affordable and accessible, Skagen watches offers the same clean lines and precision Swiss watch movements found in European-made watches at a much lower price. With a Skagen watch, you won't have to sacrifice style for the sake of your budget. Keep reading for a list of the best reasons to buy a Skagen watch.
Affordable luxury: Founded in 1989, Skagen produces watches that are sleek and fashionable but don't come with a hefty price tag. Look for Skagen dress watches made from stunning materials like rose gold and titanium when you want a watch that will add a luxurious touch to any outfit. The use of fine materials and top movements means Skagen watches are perfect for first-time watch buyers or someone looking for a great deal on a watch to add to his collection.
Swiss watch movements: Because Skagen watches are made in the United States using Swiss watch parts, they are much cheaper to assemble and, therefore, have a lower price tag. These watches disprove the theory that Swiss-made watches are the only high-quality luxury watches on the market.
Award-winning design: Named after a European beach town, Skagen watches draw their inspiration from the smooth sea and rugged coastal beaches that inspire artists everywhere. In 2010, Skagen watches won two prestigious Red Dot awards for their distinguished designs that are based on these inspirational elements. Both the 233 model stainless steel watches and Swiss Movement 585 Series watches were recognized for their high design quality by a jury consisting of watchmaking experts from around the world.
A style for everyone: Skagen makes watches for both men and women that are available in a variety of colors and designs. Always chic and never flashy, each Skagen watch continues to be personally designed by the Jorsts. Despite Skagen's rapid success, they remain dedicated to making watches that capture the essence of Denmark and convey a sense of simple sophistication.
