Swiss Army: Uncompromising Craftsmanship Since 1897
In 1897 the Original Swiss Army Knife was created in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland. Since that time, Victorinox has become well-known in more than 100 countries for precision, quality, functionality and versatility.
This century old heritage has been extended to Swiss Army Watches, which reflect the ingenious design and outstanding durability Victorinox has come to stand for over the years.
Equipped For Any Adventure
Uncompromising craftsmanship makes these watches worthy to carry the “cross and shield” emblem that symbolizes the legend of Victorinox and the Swiss Army Brand.
Skagen Designs, Ltd. is an international design company based in Reno, Nevada, United States, that produces designer watches, clocks, jewelry and sunglasses.
The company was founded in 1989 by Henrik and Charlotte Jorst, who had moved from Denmark to New York in 1986 when Henrik Jorst was appointed US sales manager for Danish brewery Carlsberg. In 1989 the couple decided to establish their own business, as US representatives for a Danish manufacturer of corporate branded business gift watches and for exclusive Jacob Jensen designer watches.
Having found a Danish-owned clock and watch manufacturer, Comtech Watches, that could manufacture watches at a lower price through its factory in Hong Kong, the Jorsts designed a few corporate watches of their own, which they showed at a corporate gift fair in New York 1991. However, at the fair they were encouraged by several retailers to market the watches under their own brand instead of chasing the corporate gift market. Thus the brand Skagen Denmark was born, taking its name from the Danish fishing village of Skagen.
The watches shown here are just a few of the ones that we have in the store. Any watch that Skagen makes we can order for you. So come in and see our selection of fine Skagen Watches!
