Whether it’s fashion, home decor, jewelry or furniture, Danish design is renowned for its sleek, minimalist aesthetic – and that applies to watches, too.

Wristwatch / Georg Jensen

Danish designer watches are some of the most attractive you can buy. They are often understated and fairly simple in design, but generally have a modern twist and contemporary vibe.

Danish watches for women tend to be sleek and chic, while Danish watches for men vary from chunky, sturdy watches to more understated minimalist styles.

Of course, Danish-designed men’s watches as well as women’s watches can vary from mass-produced, yet stylish cheap brands, to very expensive handcrafted unique watches that are passed down from generation to generation as heirlooms. .

And they might look great, but are Danish designer watches any good? And which brands are actually made in Denmark?

We’ve checked out some of the best Danish watch brands, so read on and find out everything you need to know about Danish watches.

Arne Jacobsen

Denmark’s best-known designer and architect, Arne Jacobsen, is known for his furniture and iconic buildings, including the National Bank of Denmark and Aarhus City Hall.

The clocks designed for these two buildings inspired two of his classic watches, Bankers (with its block numbers instead of digits) and City Hall.

With their distinctive figures and faces, they can be purchased as watches, table clocks, and wall clocks in a variety of colors.

Ole Mathiesen

The Ole Mathiesen company has been making watches and clocks in Copenhagen since 1845, and descendants of the original watchmakers still run the company which is now based in Copenhagen’s exclusive shopping district of Østergade.

It has a warrant from the Danish Royal Family for its timeless, handmade timepieces, many of which are made in Switzerland to exacting Swiss standards.

In addition to selling their own classic Danish designs, they also sell watches from other high-end watchmakers.


With their distinctive wooden dials, Vejrhøj watches combine hardwood and stainless steel with classic Danish design to create unusual timepieces.

Vejrh⌀j manufactures Danish designer watches with wooden dials.

Designed to last a lifetime, the analog watches are made from a variety of woods, including walnut and cherry, and the company plants a tree in a deforested area for every watch sold.

Founded by Janus Aarup in 2013, the company is still independent and based in Copenhagen.


Probably Denmark’s best-known affordable designer watch brand, Skagen produces a wide variety of stylish timepieces, from smartwatches to the classic minimalist designer watch.

They also offer a range of solar-powered watches that come with recycled stainless steel or polyester rope straps.

Named after the northernmost town in Denmark located at the top of the Jutland peninsula, Skagen was founded by two Danes, Henrik and Charlotte Jorst, in 1989.

The Jorsts were actually living in the United States when they started the business, which was sold to American multinational Fossil in 2012, and Skagen watches were never made in Denmark.

George Jensen

A Danish goldsmith and designer, Georg Jensen began designing gold and silver jewelry over a hundred years ago and opened his first goldsmith business near Copenhagen in 1904.

Jensen himself died in 1935, but the company has been designing jewelry and home products, including watches, ever since.

Heavily influenced by nature and the arts and crafts movement, his designs combine elements of Art Nouveau design with Danish minimalism.

Although no longer a family business, Georg Jensen still makes high-end – and expensive – watches including the classic minimalist Koppel watch and a handsome wristwatch.


Although it has only been around since 2017, Nordgreen has already made a name for itself with strong environmental and sustainability credentials.

Its eye-catching watches are designed by renowned Danish designer Jakob Wagner with distinctive minimalist figures and faces, and they come in different styles and colors – there’s even a vegan version.

In an effort to reduce waste and increase the life of their watches, they also sell refurbished Nordgreen watches, which have been returned and repaired and resold at a discount through their website.

The company partners with various charitable organizations that promote education, access to drinking water and reforestation in developing countries.

Larsen and Eriksen

Founded by Jeppe Larsen and Magnus Eriksen in 2106, Larsen and Eriksen design and manufacture a range of sleek, minimalist unisex watches.

In fact, they consider their watches to be works of art, so much so that they are on sale in art galleries and museums around the world, including MoMa in New York and Tate Modern in London.

The new company Larsen and Eriksen design Danish watches in Copenhagen.

From the world’s thinnest diver’s watch to the classic minimalist Essential watch, the timepieces are hand-assembled around a movement of Swiss parts (the working mechanism of the watch).

And the company is so confident in the quality of its watches that it includes a lifetime warranty for the operation of the watch.

Additionally, the design and production processes are carbon offset, making Larsen and Eriksen’s Copenhagen studio carbon neutral.

Picto Watches

Picto Watches was founded by Steen Georg Christensen and Erling Andersen in 1984, after the former inherited a watch factory that produced watches by Danish designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Henning Koppel.

Picto manufactures Danish-designed watches with a distinctive dial featuring a single hand and rotating point

Their watches are unusual in that they have a classic minimalist clock face with just one hand.

The hand points to the minutes, as on a classic dial, while the hours are indicated by a point that rotates around a rotating dial.

All of their watches follow this design, but come in a variety of styles and materials – they even have one with the case made from recycled fishing nets with a recycled plastic strap.

Auguste Berg

August Berg designer Magnus Joergensen specializes in watches with functional Danish design and classic aesthetics.

The company was founded in 2004 by Anders Peter Juel Sauerberg, who partnered with the non-profit Human Practice Foundation to provide six months of schooling to a child in Asia or Africa for every watch sold.


Which watch brand is from Denmark?

Many, but not all, of the watch brands above originated in Denmark and are still based in the country. Georg Jensen and Arne Jacobsen, for example, are iconic Danish designers who are still strongly associated with the country.

Others, like Picto and Skagen, were founded by Danes and make watches in the style of Danish design, but the actual watches are not from the country itself.

Are Danish watches actually made in Denmark?

The term Danish design refers to the clean, minimalist design of the watch, rather than the fact that it is made in Denmark.

And the reality is that although many brands claim Danish design credentials, very few, if any, are actually made in Denmark.

Some, like Larsen and Eriksen, have design studios in Denmark, although the actual manufacturing usually takes place elsewhere.

The Copenhagen Watch Group which owns Arne Jacobsen Watches and Picto is headquartered in Denmark at Kronborg Castle, north of Copenhagen, although Arne Jacobsen watches are made in Switzerland.

Many watch connoisseurs consider Danish design and Swiss precision manufacturing to be the ideal combination.

The Georg Jensen Group has production sites in Denmark and Thailand, while other companies use factories in the United States and the Far East.

Wear OS watches regain double-tap shortcut for Google Wallet Sat, 24 Sep 2022 05:46:00 +0000

When Google Wallet replaced Google Pay on Wear OS, some watches lost the ability to double-tap a preset button to initiate tap-to-pay. Google has now fixed this issue and brought the shortcut back.

Fossil Gen 5 – but not Gen 6 – and TicWatch devices allow you to quickly launch Google Pay by double-clicking. Google Wallet’s update in July broke this ability – nothing would happen after tapping. Since it was a default shortcut, users could not redefine it. Workarounds involved using another button to launch Google Wallet, but at the expense of an existing Wear OS shortcut, or using a watch face complication.

Following a recent update to the Wear OS watch app via Google Play, users discovered that a double-tap now launches Google Wallet. There are reports from owners of Fossil Gen 5 and TicWatch with version A full OS update was thankfully not required to fix this issue, but it did take a while to get here.

Meanwhile, Google Wallet for Wear OS will get “more features” later this year and in the future. The first update expanded regional availability.

The best men’s leather strap watches in 2022 Fri, 16 Sep 2022 10:44:31 +0000

Looking for a new watch? There are a lot of things you will need to consider: will it be mechanical or quartz? A chronograph? A sports watch? A detail too often overlooked is the watch strap. And wrongly so, given that a strap can have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of a watch.

We’re here to say that leather straps in particular are some of the best looking watches. Choose a watch with a high quality leather strap and you’ll be rewarded with years of wear. A leather strap watch is much more than a simple accessory, it is a symbol of sophistication, of centuries-old know-how.

The inherent classic nature of leather means it transcends trends and seasons, giving any outfit a timeless appeal and providing ultimate versatility. Leather straps make great dress watches, but can be dressed up just as well with everyday casual attire. Plus, they feel amazing to wear. The leather is soft, supple and lightweight, so you’ll hardly notice your watch on your wrist.

Ready to add a new leather strap watch to your collection? Here are some of the best leather strap watches for men to invest in now and cherish forever.

The problem with Wear OS watches is that they’re useless Sun, 11 Sep 2022 17:09:57 +0000

Faced with basic watches under RTOS or very sport-oriented models, watches under Wear OS suffer from many problems that make them too uncompetitive.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic under Wear OS 3 // Source: Frandroid

This start of the 2022 school year is particularly marked by the impressive number of connected watches launched. As every year, we are entitled to exciting new products from Apple – the Apple Watch Series 8, SE 2022 and Ultra – as well as those from Samsung – the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro.

But apart from these two major players, leaders in the sector, there is a slew of connected watches of all kinds. One of the most anticipated is none other than the Pixel Watch, Google’s first connected watch, whose detailed presentation is expected on October 6th. Fitbit also recently unveiled two new connected watches dedicated to health with the Sense 2 and the Versa 4. And alongside Amazfit, the IFA was an opportunity to lift the veil on three watches: the GTR 4, GTS 4 and GTS 4 Mini.

Already, and this is good news for you, this means that the next few months will be dotted with numerous tests of connected watches. But above all, while the market has never been so varied and Wear OS finally seemed to take off with Wear OS 3, this avalanche of new features makes me ask myself a question: what if we didn’t care about WearOS?

Wear OS 3 struggles to convince manufacturers

It must be said that, since the announcement, in the spring of 2021, of the merger of Wear OS and Tizen and the adoption of Wear OS by Samsung, few manufacturers have taken the fold and headed for the operating system of Google. With the exception of the Korean manufacturer, the only manufacturer to have announced Wear OS watches for a year and a half is MontBlanc with an overpriced model offered at more than 1200 euros.

Behind, we find only the traditional partners of Google – Fossil and Mobvoi – who were content to announce the updates of certain old models to Wear OS 3. Even Fitbit, now owned by Google, which had announced that it wanted to launch a Wear OS watch in 2022 is dragging its feet.

The craze around Wear OS is clearly not there. And to understand it, a small point is essential on the typologies of connected watches.

Sports watches, basic or with third-party apps

Over the past few months, I instinctively began to analyze smartwatches under three categories: sports watches, basic watches and smartwatches with third-party apps.

In the first category, I place models from Polar, Garmin, Coros, Suunto, even Fitbit. These are watches often with a basic interface, without a large application base and with screens that are sometimes of poor quality. But they have the advantage of offering an autonomy of more than a week and, above all, data that is both numerous and precise on your sports training.

In the second case, I classify models using the free RTOS system, that is, watches from Xiaomi, Amazfit, Zepp, Oppo or OnePlus. These watches generally offer a non-existent application base – you cannot install third-party applications – with little interaction with notifications, but have the advantage of integrating Oled screens, autonomy of more than a week and, generally, a pretty neat design. . It is in this context that I also place Huawei and Honor watches, even if the application base tends to expand.

Finally, the last case is that of the Apple Watch and watches under Wear OS. They are much more advanced smartwatches in terms of functionality. They often offer well-made Oled screens, bright enough to be used in direct sunlight. Their system is more advanced and, above all, compatible with an impressive fleet of third-party applications. To make them work, these watches generally integrate powerful processors, such as the S6, S7 or S8 chips from Apple, the Snapdragon Wear 4100 or W5 Gen 1 from Qualcomm or the Exynos W920 from Samsung. The concern with these watches is that, due to their system or the power of their processors, autonomy often has difficulty keeping up. Rare are the watches running Wear OS or watchOS to exceed three days of autonomy in ideal conditions.

Wear OS lacks the presence of Apple Watch

Apple has however been able to pull out of the game by making the Apple Watch an almost indispensable accessory for its iPhones. So much so that the firm has occupied first place in the ranking of the best-selling connected watches in the world for years.

There remains the case of Wear OS. If the brand image of Apple manages to override the weak autonomy of its watches, it is far from being the case of the operating system of Google. The Mountain View company is aware of this and likes to repeat that autonomy is reinforced with each new update. The same goes for Qualcomm with its processors to power Wear OS watches. With each new chip, the promise is the same: “I promise, this time it’s the right one, the autonomy is really improved”. Not really convincing.

Realize: we even come to salute the autonomy of a Wear OS watch when it exceeds two days of autonomy, even when watches equipped with other systems exceed the week of use.

The main interest of Wear OS is however simple: to allow the installation of applications apart from those integrated by the manufacturer. The promise is beautiful. During the first years, we saw the appearance of many applications compatible with what was still called Android Wear: applications for orientation and for sports, of course, but also for watching videos, even playing games. . directly on his wrist. The developers had a blast, the users too.

Applications rarely essential

But it is clear that, eight years after the launch of Wear OS, applications have become very secondary. Watching a video on your watch doesn’t make sense, just like playing a game on such a small screen. Indeed, when we look at the list of the most installed applications on the Play Store, we find rather classic applications: Spotify, iHeart, YouTube Music, Call App, Shazam, Messages, Google Wallet, Outlook or Contact. These are often music control apps, orientation apps, or sports or health apps.

However, these features are often natively supported by many connected watches. The RTOS, for example, lets you control the music you listen to, regardless of the app you’re using on your smartphone. Managing messages and notifications is also supported, though not always possible to respond to. Finally, all connected watches offer applications for monitoring sports training. Sometimes even with the ability to sync sessions with third-party services like Strava or Runkeeper directly from the watch’s companion app.

When we look at the main use of connected watches by their users, the observation is clear. At the end of August, I asked a simple question on Twitter: “what is the main use you make of your connected watch”. I then offered four answers: notifications, third-party apps, health or step tracking, and workout tracking.

⌚ For connected watch wearers, I have a question.

For you, what is the main use you make of it? 🤔

— Geoffroy Husson (@Griffoooo) August 29, 2022

Notifications and health monitoring come first with 45.2 and 34.2% respectively of the nearly 600 votes. Behind, 16.8% of those who responded primarily use their watch for training tracking. Finally, far behind, third-party applications are only the main argument for 3.9% of users.

Of course, this Twitter poll does not claim to be exhaustive. Especially since, as several users have told me, third-party applications are rarely the main use, but can be the second criterion. But, it reinforces my point: these applications are moderately used.

Much less autonomy in Wear OS, but a glimmer of hope

However, if a user buys a watch primarily to have notifications on the wrist, to measure the number of steps or to precisely follow his sports performance, he does not need a connected watch – often bracelets under 100 euros offer the same functions – let alone watch under Wear OS. If we add that watches equipped with the Google system are generally more expensive than models under RTOS with much less autonomy, this begins to make a lot of arguments against the Google ecosystem.

Of course, I’m waiting to be shown that I’m wrong. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is already a step in the right direction with its two to three day battery life. But we are still far from the seven to fourteen days of autonomy displayed by RTOS or Harmony OS watches despite their equally vibrant and bright Oled screen. Maybe Qualcomm will manage to surprise us with its new Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 chip at the end of the year.

Until then, the arguments in favor of Wear OS will always have difficulty convincing in the face of its faults. The uses put forward by Google’s operating system, namely hundreds of third-party applications, have little weight in the face of limited autonomy and prices much higher than those of simpler watches.
