Although big and bold is the trend for most of today’s top-selling men’s and women’s timepieces from numerous watchmakers around the globe, most notably Invicta, TAG Heuer, Fossil, Michael Kors, Bulova, IWC and Omega, many Scandinavian watchmakers are going against the grade with slim and slender minimalist designs.
Popular Scandinavian watchmakers Skagen, Obaku and Daniel Wellington are renowned and highly popular worldwide for their ultra-sleek and slender timepieces measuring less than 11mm in thickness and no more than 41mm in diameter.
Daniel Wellington a relatively new Swedish watch brand founded in 2006 has led the recent non-conformist movement of slim and slender timepieces. The brand’s founder Flip Tysander, a Swedish entrepreneur sought out to create wristwatches with a classic, preppy feel that could be worn by both men and women for any occasion… from dressed-down relaxed and casual to more formal dressed-up occasions.
The minimalist, Scandinavian design is presented in every detail of a Daniel Wellington timepiece…from the thin, lightweight and uncluttered case with clean flowing lines that is ergonomically designed to comfortably fit the contours of the wrist.
The supple leather and signature NATO canvas straps the cases are presented on are both comfortable and appealing. What’s more, each of the straps is interchangeable, offering numerous fashion and color options.
The highly legible dials with attractive silvery white backgrounds, slender baton hands and hour markers add to sleek, understated design. The concave shaped crowns with decorative fluted detail complete the look.
