Skagen has a flair for streamlined, high-end designs, which they prove again through the Melbye Titanium case steel mesh watch. Its clean strokes and the brightly coloured inner numerals ring are unique and make it fit for both work and weekend.
The use of Titanium makes the Skagen Melbye both lightweight and strong and gives it a timeless finish. The Danish watchmakers brought in new evolutions in traditional designs; it’s their philosophy of excellence that fuelled the creation of this simplistic beauty, rather than re-packaging usual sporty styles within sophisticated silhouettes. The whole effort came out as a striking design, with inspirations coming from the dress-sports line of thoughts.
The Skagen Melbye Titanium Case with Mesh Band SKW6007 Mens Watch so far, is one of the masterpieces the brand came up with; blending a sporty feel to dressy elements and catchy colours, the neat outcome is a product that’s not age or occasion specific but an all time, all-round wear.
Its prominent features include a round titanium body that flows into somewhat square-ish extensions at the poles (12 & 6) to connect with the mesh band. The titanium is an apt choice in this regard, for it is virtually scratchproof and a fifth of the weight of steel of a similar mass. This makes it an ideal accessory both for work and play and for people with highly sensitive skin. Titanium is the most bio-friendly metal available and is also the most hypo-allergenic.
The next is an easily viewable day and date window. Positioned at three o’clock, it’s in high contrast with the grey dial. Running on analog quartz technology, it is accurate to the point and doesn’t need any user input unlike mechanical watches that must be worn or wound to keep them running. In this case, just a battery replacement every few years would suffice and there stays no such hassles like servicing that are required. The orange ring on the dial brings up a much needed break from the monotony of uniform grey and adds to the watch a vibrancy that pushes it into the sports category.
Atop the dial is a mineral crystal that’s as durable as the Skagen Denmark Watch itself; it ensures you don’t damage the watch if you accidentally bump your wrist against hard surfaces. It is also very hard to scratch, which means, your watch will keep looking like new even after years.
Along with all those there is a 5 meters water resistance that allows you to swim and shower without taking it off your wrist and thereby, cutting the risks of losing it altogether.
The Skagen Gitte Watch is for the person who likes the outdoors but not at the cost of curbed-down sophistication. It’s a wonderful example of simple Danish design, made from the most durable and bio-friendly of all materials. Built to stand the test of time, the ultra-lightweight Skagen Titanium Watch brings out your sporty spirit within no time.
