It’s not often we find a watch that has excellent features and good looks to boot. But for Danish lifestyle brand Skagen, form and function come together as the foundation for the brand’s aesthetic of thin, minimalist watches with a focus on design.
Inspired by the cold of winter and the warm comfort of the indoors, Skagen’s Holiday 2018 collection features the brand’s trademark slim, steel-mesh styles in a rich seasonal colour palette.
Here are five watches we’re eyeing from the collection:
Falster 2 Smartwatch, $509
The sleek second edition of Skagen’s smartwatch series has a rounded stainless steel dial and an interchangeable magnetic steel-mesh strap that offers a secure and comfortable fit.
Boasting a swimproof touchscreen, the Falster 2 comes with a range of smart features powered by Wear OS by Google™, including heart-rate tracking, Google Assistant, smartphone notifications, activity tracking, GPS and more. The straps are available in a wide range of colourways, including rose gold, gunmetal, and silver stainless steel mesh, as well as a black leather strap option.
Choose from time- or function-based displays for easy access to your favorite features, and add your favorite third-party apps from the Google Play store. To top it all off, the battery-efficient display provides up to 24 hours of use on a single charge.
The Google Pay feature is not available in Singapore yet.
Freja Watch, $179 (left) and Grenen Watch, $299 (right)
Simple yet sophisticated, the Freja watch is the perfect complement to all your outfits, whether you’re headed to the office or club. It features an elegant 26mm sunray dial with crystal indexes and a svelte 14mm leather strap.
The 38mm Grenen features a sandblasted dial with numeric indexes and a date window, all enclosed in a slim 6mm case. The interchangeable leather strap comes in a wide range of colours—they’re super easy to swap out, so you can switch things up to suit your OOTD.
Signatur Slim Watch (left) and Horisont Special Edition Watch (right)
The Men’s Signatur Slim watch ($289) features a 40mm sandblasted dial encased in a 5mm titanium case that’s lightweight yet durable. Linear and dot indexes mark the hours and minutes respectively, giving it a modern, ultra-minimalist look. The Ladies’ version ($269) features a 36mm case with a mother-of-pearl dial.
Last but not least, the special-edition Horisont watch is a brand new release that’s exclusive to the Holiday collection. It comes in two editions—one for the ladies and one for the men (both $289). Inspired by the moon’s orbit around Earth, the Horisont features a matte dial with short linear and dot indexes, genuine diamonds that mark the hours on the ladies’ version, and a silver-tone disc that orbits the dial on the men’s.
The silver steel-mesh strap is interchangeable, and the case back is engraved to commemorate this special edition.
The Skagen Holiday 2018 collection is available at TANGS Tang Plaza, TANGS VivoCity, and zalora.sg
