Watch Of The Day: Skagen Signatur One-Hand
We’ve been a fan of Skagen watches for a while, like the modern design of the Skagen Ancher to the bold style of Skagen’s Holst timepiece. Personally, I love Skagen because many of their timepieces that look like they cost $300-400 but actually cost under $200 and they manage to add unique design characteristics to watches that remain versatile in style. And when it comes to unique design characteristics, I’m not sure Skagen can outdo the Signatur One-Hand timepiece.
The Skagen Signatur One-Hand is without a doubt one of the most unique watches you’ll find, all thanks to it’s re-configured dial and time-reading design. That’s right, at first glance you’ll have your watch-hands all sorts of mixed up but when you understand this new layout it makes a ton of logical sense.
Here’s how Skagen explains this unique timepiece:
This 40mm Signatur watch is a unique take on a traditional three-hand watch. The single hand on the main sandblasted dial indicates minutes, while the subeye at 12 o’clock indicates a.m./p.m. hours and the subeye at 6 o’clock tracks seconds.
While my initial reaction was slight confusion, if I truly imagine having the watch on my wrist I think this system would be really convenient. The layout is logical but unfamiliar, something that would only take a few days or less to adopt.
Skagen took this unique timepiece design and entrenched it in stunning style, with a beautiful genuine leather strap and subtle dial coloring. Plus, the blue hands bring a pop to the otherwise simple and minimal timepiece.
Like all of their watches, this timepiece is a steal for the quality. Right now on Amazon, you can get the Skagen Signatur One-Hand watch for just $145.
