Skagen – Defining a Minimalistic Lifestyle

Simple and sleek, the Skagen watches heighten the sense of minimalism. Inspired by the Danish coastline and in fact named after a small fishing town of the same name, Skagen brand was the brainchild of a Danish couple Henrik and Charlotte Jorst. Although everything about the brand hints at Danish minimalism, the watches were never built in Denmark.

Skagen watches are simple yet elegant and complement any lifestyle. The strikingly clean dials, fashionable straps in a variety of materials, all these represent the minimalistic approach to life in a distinctly modern manner. I think that the pairing of the vibrant and fresh colours of the straps with the beautifully designed dials of Skagen watches make all the difference. These are indisputably the most glamorous timepieces that you could hope to have.

After the initial success of the Skagen brand – they have won the Red Dot Awards many times – the brand’s popularity has skyrocketed. In 2012, Skagen had become the subsidiary of the Fossil Group but continues to produce minimalistic, stylish and affordable wrist watches. Although Skagen is a subsidiary of the Fossil Group now, the design aspect of the timepieces is still overseen by the founders of the brand.

Skagen Leonora SKW2799 Diamond Accents Quartz Women’s Watch is an exclusive timepiece superbly designed.  The unique design feature of this watch is the exquisite internal glass bezel inspired by how sunlight reflects the ocean waves. It was the most attractive timepiece in the line-up of Skagen Watches at here:

The watch design is such that it could take the average day at the office in its stride, or just as easily be paired with formal outfits… I thought this would make a nice gift for my sister Renee. She is a fun-loving girl, just out of university and looking for a job. The Skagen Leonora would be a perfect accessory to complement her attire.

This is a stunning timepiece that is a petite 25mm case diameter with 4mm thickness. The rose-gold toned stainless steel case and mesh bracelet give an amazing look to this ladies’ watch. The clean, white dial has diamond accents as hour markers, simple stick hands and covered by a mineral crystal. The Skagen Leonora SKW2799 is powered by a quartz movement just like most of Skagen’s timepieces.

A solid case back with 30 meters water resistance ensures the watch remains dry even with the occasional drenching in the waters. The rose gold tone mesh bracelet fixed with a deployment clasp adds a certain lustre to the whole ensemble. Renee was thrilled with the watch, it looked superb on her wrist.

For the folks who love the minimalistic elements, Skagen watches are a perfect choice. Simple yet modern, these affordable timepieces are a must-have in your collection.
