Skagen was founded on the philosophy, that well designed, high quality watches do not have to be expensive. Since its beginnings in Charlotte and Hendrik Jorst’s New York cellar in 1990, Skagen has developed itself to an international company, with branches in the US and Denmark, and is recognised as one of the top manufacturers of watches.
The Skagen watches are characteristic for their slim and unostentatious design, without missing a certain love for detail, that they are frequently sold under the name of Skagen Slimline. They are made out of quality materials such as stainless steel or 100% titanium, and the finest of leathers. All Skagen drives have a three-year-Skagen Denmark warranty.
