This season, the innovation is focused on specialty women’s timepieces. Set for a Spring/Summer 2013 debut – the watches will be available globally, giving more design enthusiasts around the world access to the specialty styles.

The extended announcement comes after consecutive seasons of the collaborative effort receiving such enormous reception. As the first designer partnership for Skagen Denmark and Konno’s foremost entry into timepieces, the blending of the two sensibilities will continue to result in a seamless fusion of Danish minimalism and Japanese precision.

The innovative ladies timepieces travel a road of simplicity and beauty, managing to express elegance through the most refined characteristics. From case legs in tear drop form to its elegantly simple round case with a hidden crown, this feminine ladies watch is a blend of style and comfortable design fit for all occasions, formal or casual.

“Throughout its modest design the idea is that the precious moments in every passing minute can be embodied in a timepiece; the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS symbolize the tear drops reflections as they splinter into fragmented sparks and reflect off the dials”, says Hiromichi Konno.

Adding to the character of this special timepiece, the back of each dial is signed by Hiromichi Konno. Available in classic white or polished black genuine leather bands.
