With overbearing schedules and the stress of deadlines, we’re all for unleashing our inner child (i.e. embracing more fun, colour and joy into our lives). So is Skagen, the Danish, unisex brand bringing a playful, dreamlike attitude to their new Aaren Kulør collection.
Let’s take the liberty here to blame biology: first impressions are everything, and it’s the reason why our eyes did a little dance when Skagen’s five new vibrant watches hit our inbox. It’s not hard to understand the attraction. Watches keep our schedules in check, making going about our bustling lives possible — and seamless, God willing.
A closer look would reveal that this one’s got the looks and the goods.
Understated and uncomplicated, the range features a 41mm aluminium case with a sandblast dial, linear and numerical indexes — in a bold colour palette — red, yellow, dark blue, light blue and orange. Add to that? The silicone strap’s quick release design allows for an easy interchange with any 20mm standard strap. Gloriously practical, adaptable and streamlined, just the way we like it.
Such is the power of a simple yet aesthetic timepiece to tip the scales from “hmm, okay” to “it’s minimalistic yet my eyes can’t look away”. For your vicarious viewing pleasure, below.
Bringing a clean watch dial, a two-hand movement and a seconds-tracking subdial to the fore are such timeless qualities we tend to overlook. Neither too cluttered nor too embellished, this happy-hued collection epitomises the concept of less-is-more.
Delivering a touch of colourful whimsy, it would seem that these bright hues have spread their cheer over this collection. Done poorly, vivid colours can look… gaudy, to put it politely. But done well, as seen with Skagen, it’s a style home-run.
Versatile, subtle and stylish — what more could we ask for? A high-quality watch accessory? You got it.
