Editor's Notes

November 05, 2019:

As all of Skagen's watches are built to a similar quality, there wasn't anything inherently wrong with the options that we replaced during this update. Instead, we removed them generally for style or availability issues. For example, the Melbye SKW6007 was replaced with the Melbye SKW6078 since we already had another gunmetal and orange watch and we wanted to include some more color variety to ensure there is something to match every kind of outfit. The Nordstrands SKW6082 was removed because we didn't find its design to be inspired enough, as was the Grenan SKW6181.

Taking the place of a removed watch is the Connected Holst Titanium SKT1312, which looks like a traditional model but is equipped with smart features. Being made of titanium it is also very durable. The Hald Hybrid SKT1207 is also equipped with smart functionality and features an interesting grey and rose gold color scheme. Another new addition is the Hagen Slim SKW6472, which features a striking mother of pearl face. It has a minimalistic style with rose gold indexes and a small date window that makes it a good choice for formal occasions. For those who want something a little more playful, we added the vibrant Aaren Kulor.

Many of the models we selected during the last update have stood the test of time and still get high marks from users. Some of these include the Sundby Titanium 233XLTTM, which is extremely lightweight and has an elegant monochromatic design; the Signatur SKW6374, which blends a variety of colors to allow it to pair well with most outfits; and the Ancher SKW6104, which has a very thin profile and a classy style.

If none of these tickle your fancy, you may want to check out our reviews of some other fashion watch manufacturers, such as our list of the best Diesel and Fossil models.

Special Honors

Holst Automatic SKW6580 Though not a company often associated with skeleton watches, the Holst Automatic SKW6580 proves they can certainly produce an attractive one when they desire to. Both the front and back show its inner workings, and it comes with a supple black leather band. skagen.com
