In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a lot going on in the world. And sure, in the grand scheme of things, writing about watches? It’s not really that important. However, as something that can take your mind off of things for awhile while you’re hunkered down in your home? Well, that we can help you out with. We recently heard about this release that brings some color to things, in the form of the Skagen X Hoptimist collection.
Both brands call Denmark home, so it makes sense that they would work together in this format. They’ve taken a simpler quartz three-hander in a 41mm case (the Skagen Aaren), and given it a good dose of happy. In that, you’ve got this sort of springy bobblehead character showing up on the dials. On a few of the designs, it’s right there and bold, and in the others it’s a little more subtle. Likewise, the little springy dude shows up on the silicone strap as well.
Coming in at $125, the four variations are all limited-edition pieces. It varies by the lineup, but the total collection comes in at under 1,500 pieces, so it’s definitely a smaller addition. Still, if you’re looking for something relatively inexpensive with a good dose of whimsy and color to lift your spirits, the Skagen X Hoptimist is there to help you out. skagen.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
