You know some of us don’t like big, knurled watch crowns. Generally, we are people who work with our hands and have to twist and turn our wrists operating tools. Or ride bicycles and motorcycles, which can also mean the hand is set at a 35 degree angle to the wrist for some time. Depends on your handlebars of course..
But I digreess. The solution to the crown grooves imprint on the back of the hand is simple, a hidden crown that is superslim. Unobtrusive – there’s a word.
That’s what Skagen have fitted to the Grenen model, which retails at £139.
Quartz power unit, K1 crystal, blue dial. Usual minimalist styling. You know the script, here’s the tech spec from Skagen;
At least 50% recycled stainless steel case with a leather strap sourced from Leather Working Group
Modern and clean with a hidden crown for a sleek look, Swiss luminous minute hands, hour hands and Arabic indexes
Japanese three-hand movement for precise timing
K1 crystal, 24 hour inner track, and a date window
