Skagen Designs manufactures watches, jewelry and sunglasses. The company was founded by a married Danish couple, Henrik and Charlotte Jorst, who came to the U.S. from Denmark in 1989. They named the company after a small seaside village in Denmark. Skagen watches are available for men and women, with cases made of steel, ceramic and titanium. Band styles include mesh, leather, link and ceramic. All Skagen watches are analog, and available styles include standard watches, dual-time watches and multifunction watches.

Step 1

Pull the crown of a standard Skagen watch to the middle position. Rotate the crown to the correct date. Push the crown in.

Step 2

Pull the crown of a Skagen multifunction watch to the middle position. Rotate the crown counter-clockwise until the correct date displays. Push in the crown.

Step 3

Pull the crown of a Skagen chronograph out to the middle position. Turn the crown to display the correct date. Push the crown to its normal position.

Step 4

Pull the crown of a Skagen Big Date watch to the first position. Turn the crown counter-clockwise to set the first digit of the date. Turn the crown clockwise to set the second digit of the date. Push the crown back to its regular position.

Step 5

Pull the crown of a Skagen Dual Time watch to the first position. Turn the crown counter-clockwise to set the date. Return the crown to its normal position.

Tips

  • If you set the date on a Skagen Dual Time watch between 9:00 pm and 2:00 am, the watch may not change the date at the correct time.
