Singapore’s Red Dot Design Award is a global label of excellence in quality and design in businesses. This year, the highly acclaimed award has been given to the Hiromichi Konno leather watch by Danish watchmaker Skagen. A sleek timepiece with a sophisticated flair, it is easy to understand why Skagen’s Hiromichi Konno leather watch would win the approval of the panel.

Named after its renowned industrial designer Hiromichi Konno, this leather watch highlights a unique square case softened by a rounded outline. White and yellow watch hands provide a stylish contrast against a black watch dial, complemented with a black watch strap of genuine Italian leather.

According to Hiromichi Konno, this award-winning watch design “was created to weave the beauty of contrast and harmony together into a minimal design”.

The Hiromichi Konno leather watch indeed lives up to the vision of its creator. The watch also comes in pure white paired with a stainless steel flat snap case and steel watch hands in a clean sleek design. The white leather watch appeals more to ladies, with its slightly thinner white leather strap of 18 mm, compared to the 19 mm for the black leather watch.

The Skagen Hiromichi Konno watch is priced at US$145 (S$184). You can shop for Skagen’s Hiromichi Konno leather watch online, or find out more about Skagen’s timepieces at its website at Follow Skagen on Facebook at, on Twitter at @skagendenmark, or on YouTube at
