Here at Utility we are proud stockists of watches & jewellery byDanish company Skagen. Renowned for its functional, minimalist and elegant range, Skagen products embody all the hallmark characteristics of contemporary Danish design: quality, value and purpose. Though they are beautifully modern, Skagen accessories have a timeless appeal, having been inspired by the infinite beauty of nature and Danish seaside history.
Founded in 1989, Skagen is named after a seaside village in Denmark, where the North and Baltic Sea meet at the tip of Grenen Beach in what is known as the “Two Seas Phenomenon.” A 15th century medieval fishing town, millions of visitors including Danish royals, have flocked to Skagen over the centuries to witness this extraordinary wonder of nature, and the unique wave interactions formed by the rare occurrence of two seas intersecting.
Yet Skagen is not only an environmental marvel but also an artists refuge and cultural hotspot. It boasts a ‘Skagen Style’ of architecture that Ulrik Plesner, one of Denmark’s most important architects, is credited with, and is known for its yellow brick buildings and red clay roofs that give it a distinct and harmonious appearance.
It is the dynamic waves and idyllic atmosphere of the small seaside town that’s inspired much of the Skagen brand’s collection. As waves wash up onto the shore, tiny grains of sand drill perfect holes into the beach pebbles, creating naturally crafted objects that find a purpose through the skills of local craftsmen. Combining nature’s simplicity with skilled craftsmanship, Skagen creates sea-inspired jewellery made with ocean-scoured glass and pearls in silver-tone and rose-gold settings.
Skagen jewellery pairs beautifully with their functional, purposeful and elegantly understated range of wristwatches. Like the seaside town that inspired their design, Skagen's range of watches for men & women embody style and simplicity.
Whether you want a watch, statement jewellery piece, an elegant everyday wear accessory or a sleek leather wallet, all Skagen's designs are unmistakably inviting and full of warmth and character. Find something for yourself or a gift for a special someone by viewing our full Skagen collection here.
