I have a couple Skagen watches that I bought a few years ago – and I decided to take a look at some of the new Skagen watches for men that are on the market and make some recommendations for you to check out.
Here are pictures of the watches that I have by Skagen (anyone else wondering how to pronounce Skagen?)
The first one was purchased in Disney World – they must have had a deal to put Mickey on the watches – I don’t think they are available anymore – but I do remember the same model was available without Mickey Mouse on it – it is Skagen model number 105LTX.
The other one is a black dress watch with a leather band. This watch is very thin and the face is a clean and simple design with small dial for the second hand in red. This one is Skagen model number 433LSLB.
Taking a look at the Skagen watches for men that are currently available – I discovered a few that I really like and would recommend buying if you’re in the market – I’m thinking of purchasing one of these for myself. While doing some research I also found out that Skagen was purchased by Fossil in April 2012 – and they also now sell handbags, jewelry and personal goods – in addition to watches.
OK – on to the watches.
The first one is the Skagen Ancher SKW6162 – see a stock picture below.
On this watch I like the blue numbers on the slightly textured silver face – the clean black hands, with blue second hand. The simplicity of the silver case – how it extends into the band – and the perforated dark blue leather band looks great. Perforated leather is something that makes the watch stand out – – it reminds me of a nice sports car steering wheel – and elevates the feel of the watch (also costs a lot less than that sports car). It’s these small details that set off a watch from “just a watch” to something unique. No one wants “just a watch” so check this one out here.
The next one is the Skagen Ancher SKW6143
This is a perfect dress watch – you need something to wear with a suit? – this is your watch. The gold colored case, hands and hour markers all look great against the white face. The 3 subdials for the chronograph function also add some elegance to this watch. All of this is set off with the black leather band – this is like a tuxedo for your wrist. This is a watch that will look great years from now with this classic design. If you want to have the best dressed wrist around (without spending a ton of money) – click here to get this watch.
The last one is the Skagen Balder Titanium Chronograph SKW6076
The all around watch – this one works with a suit – or jeans – basically anything. If you want one great watch to wear all the time – this is the one to get. It is titanium – so it’s very light – you will be surprised at it’s weight compared to a stainless steel watch. This watch will be durable – with the metal band vs. a leather band it will hold up much better to everyday wear and tear. One of my favorite features of this watch is the little bit of orange around the face, in the sub dial and on the second hand. This small detail sets the watch apart from “just another watch” to “That’s a nice watch!”. If you want a watch that goes with everything – go here and get one now.
