About Skagen Watches
Brief Company History
Skagen Denmark came to be when its founders – Henrik and Charlotte Jorst – moved to New York (from Denmark) in 1986. Initially focusing on manufacturing corporately-branded gift watches, Skagen introduced their first original watches in 1991.
In 2012, Fossil acquired Skagen as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Today, Skagen Denmark is known for their fashion-forward designs in both their watches and other accessories.
