How to Set a Skagen Watch

by Kochava R. Greene ; Updated September 28, 2017

Skagen watches are manufactured in Denmark by Skagen Designs. Skagen watches come in a variety of styles for men and women. Although styles may differ, care and instructions for all Skagen watches are the same. Setting a Skagen watch requires no special tools or equipment.

Step 1

Locate the crown on the side of your Skagen watch. For Standard, Big Dat and Multifunctional watches, the crown is the small knob on the right side of the watch that protrudes from the face. The crown has three positions: fully in against the watch, halfway out from the face and fully extended from the face.

For Chronograph watches, the crown is the center knob among the three knobs on the side. For Dual-Time watches, the crown is the topmost knob. The following instructions all use the same knob to set the time.

Step 2

Pull the crown out to the middle position. Rotate the crown to adjust the date. Pull the crown all the way out to the fully extended position. Rotate the crown to set the time.

Step 3

Push the crown all the way back in to the fully in position. Your Skagen watch is now set.
