Skagen have a new solar powered watch and this has the old school rectangular case style, for that vintage look.
There is a 32mm diameter ladies model and a 36mm gents case width in the range, with grey and blue dial options. The mesh strap is also available in grey or black. Skagen say that just a few hours sunlight can power the watch up and it will then keep going for up to 6 months, which is remarkable – if true.
I mean it defies the laws of physics, but yeah, could happen.
The watch also a case made from 50% recycled steel, in tune with the Skagen leaf ethos.
Price is £169 and engraving is free.
VERDICT; A Seiko, Lorus or Citizen solar is cheaper and does the same job, probably more reliable in the long run as the Japanese have been making solar watches for a long time. But if you want that european, basic Ikea furnishings look, then Skagen have it covered.
