The company was founded in 1989 by Henrik and Charlotte Jorst who had moved to America from Denmark. They began by making watches through a Danish owned clock and watch manufacturer called Comtech watches, unitl they were encouraged to start making watches under their own brand and that is when Skagen was formed.
Skagen is inspired by the stunning wide-open vistas of Denmark's most northern town from which the brand takes it name. It is an ancient fishing village which for centuries artists have been fascinated by, due to the beautiful nature, encapturing natural light and a perfect sky. The company logo represents the meeting of Skagerrak and the Kattegat sea bodies of water at Skagen.
This collection is all about danish design which aims to offer an encouragement of thoughtfulness and reflection and a way out of complexities. This brand is full of modest designs, with the main focus being simplicity and functionality. This develops characteristics unlike other jewellery brands of a desire to be unostentatious, giving the products a certain honesty.
Here at Silver Tree the products we have to offer are minimalistic and simple, with clear lines. Featuring sophisticated, relaxed and functional styles, for the ultimate Danish design which is perfect for gifts or special occasions.
All Skagen watches come in a Skagen presentation box with a Skagen gift bag.
