Minimalistic felt or milanese strap watches with a hint of military flare
Skagen are renowned for their simplistic, ultra slim yet super stylish watch creations. We will be taking a peek at their latest innovations. I have selected 3 gents timepieces that have the Skagen edge.
Skagen are the watch brand renowned for the resurgence of a classic watch strap known in the 70’s - 80’s as a Milanese style bracelet also referred to as mesh strap.
My first product choice has to be the gents heavy mesh bracelet watch (Model No: SKW6164) This timepiece is a prime example of a Skagen watch with a Milanese style strap. A slightly larger dial with a 40mm brushed steel case complemented by its heavy gauge Milanese brushed steel bracelet, this slightly heavier style bracelet adds masculinity to this timepiece without sacrificing its streamlined look. The blue dial is a perfect choice of colour in my opinion, complemented with bold white numbers and second hand. It’s simplicity in design oozes with style.
Skagen are continually evolving with each watch collection bringing with it exciting design elements continuously. My personal favourite this season has to be The Ancher collection dual time watch (Model No: SKW6107) Two different watch times have always been popular amongst International travellers, although are increasingly popular in the mainstream.
Two gold colour dials one with numbers the other with batons sit on a crisp white dial, housed in a brushed gold colour round bezel case. Complemented by a soft matte leather black strap and completed with a matte gold colour buckle, really keep this model streamlined.
Correct me if I am wrong but I don’t think I have ever come across a watch with a felt strap? (Model No: SKW6097) Skagen have broken the mould designing an all grey watch with a felt strap, sounds dowdy but its anything but.......again simplicity is key a light grey dial complemented with darker grey colour numbers. A blue second hand gives this watch face a pop of complementary colour. The dark felt strap really gives this model a unique finishing touch that works so well.
Customers have been asking us for clear watch dials with traditional numbers for years and Skagen have certainly delivered yet again.
