Skagen is a Danish watch brand founded in 1989. Skagen watches are known for their elegant, sophisticated design which blends Danish design techniques with contemporary innovations. There is a wide range of Skagen watches for both men and women, and every one of them embodies the Skagen mission statement, ‘simple design for a better life’. Skagen has distribution channels all around the world, so you can expect high-quality, functional timepieces and great customer support wherever you go.Quartz or Automatic
When choosing a Skagen watch you should consider whether you want a quartz or automatic. Quartz watches keep accurate time and require little maintenance, but you will need to change the battery every few years. Automatic watches do not have a battery, instead they run on mechanical parts which are powered by the movement of your wrist.Bands
The watch band is another important consideration. Many Skagen watches come on a stainless steel band or mesh band, which are ideally suited for active use. Stainless steel does not rust and is very durable. Another option is a leather band, which are suitable for dressy occasions. Both these types of bands come in a variety of colours including white, black, silver, gold and brown. You can easily change the strap on your Skagen watch at any time, simply purchase the correct size Skagen watch band for your specific model.Warranty
All Skagen watches come with a 2-year international warranty, providing buyers with peace of mind and reassurance. Every Skagen watch is made to a high standard, but if you encounter any issues with the internal movement, hands or dial of your watch, you will be covered by the warranty.Parts and Accessories
Watch parts and accessories can be easily purchased, if needed. If you are purchasing a Skagen watch for a gift, it might be a good idea to pick up a protective pillow and casing. Tools for removing and replacing bands and batteries are available, along with many different colours and styles of bands. If your watches crystal ever becomes scratched, you can also find replacement crystals. It is recommended to keep a few batteries on hand if you own a battery powered Skagen watch, as you will be able to quickly swap the battery over and continue wearing your watch.
