It’s not often we find a watch that has excellent features and looks to boot. But for Danish lifestyle brand Skagen, form and functionality meld together as foundation for the brand’s aesthetic of thin, minimal watches with a focus on design.
Inspired by the cold of winter and the warmth cultivated indoors, the Holiday 2018 collection features the brand’s trademark slim and steel-mesh watch styles in a rich seasonal colour palette.
Check out the 5 watches we’re eyeing from SKAGEN’s Holiday collection below:
Falster 2 Smartwatch, $509
Introducing the second edition of the smartwatch with a refined, chic aesthetic. You won’t have to compromise on your personal style with this contemporary and sleek watch that comes with an interchangeable magnetic steel-mesh strap provides secure fastening and a comfortable fit.

The Men’s Signatur Slim watch ($289) features a 40mm sandblasted dial with two-hand movement in a 5mm thick titanium case that is equally lightweight as it is durable. Linear and dot indexes mark the hours and minutes respectively, giving it a modern 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 is exclusive to the Holiday collection. It comes in two editions; one for ladies and one for the men (both $289). Featuring a matte dial with short linear and dot indexes, a genuine diamond that marks the hour on the ladies version and a silver-tone disc that orbits the dial on the men’s, the Horizont was constructed with inspiration by the moon’s orbit around Earth.
The silver steel-mesh strap is interchangeable with other straps, and the case back is engraved to commemorate this special edition.
