I have a Skagen watch and I really like it. I just need to know how to pronounce it properly so that when people ask about my watch I can pronounce it correctly.
In Danish, it’s like SKAY-en, the “a” is long and the “g” is silentSource(s): Danish speaker
Copied DIRECTLY from the Skagen website:
Q: How do you pronounce Skagen?
A: Skagen can be pronounced one of three ways: “Skah-guhn,” “Skay-gen,” or “Skay-en.”
kittysue is correct…not at all like the first comment.
like ska in the word skate
The first part “Ska” would be pronunciated like in “scar” or “scarf”, [ska:]
the second part “gen” would be pronunciated in the British way to pronunciate “again” [e’gen] where the accentuation is on the first syllable, not the U.S. way where it is on the second and sounds like [e’gein].
