Skagen created their first watch in 1991 and quickly curated a reputation for unique European design. Skagen’s corporate aim is to bring Danish-inspired ideals to the world through design imbued with purpose, honesty and simplicity. It resonates strongly because it embodies the design ideals value: minimal, timeless, classic design. The Ancher delivers on all three fronts.
Skagen generally maintains a good reputation for build quality. This time they brought the Skagen Ancher Chronograph Quartz SKW6105 Men’s Watch. This Ancher is given a streamlined look; its sharp lines cutting distinct boundaries. The case is slightly larger than usual; bringing plenty of room for the chronograph function layout. 60-seconds and 30-minutes – that’s the way the chrono functions. The pushers are friction-free and everything is clearly legible on the dial. All this make the Ancher Chronograph a highly functional watch, crafted in the timeless nature of Danish design.
The brushed Stainless steel finish looks excellent and compliments the shape and design of the Ancher. The deep blue dial stands out against everything else with Silver Tone Hands. It’s lightweight, thin, and comfortable to wear thanks to the surprisingly soft saddle-Black leather band. It has fitted with the Mineral Crystal. Skagen has been known to use Quartz Movements. The water resistance of the watch is 30 MM.
The Ancher rests nicely on the wrist. It presents itself well and adds to just about any outfit it’s paired with. The Skagen Ancher is a fantastic looking timepiece; it offers fair value for its price. For an everyday wearable and versatile quartz watch, the Skagen Ancher fits the bill nicely. Its minimalist styling means it can pair with just about anything.
