1815 was an important year – it was the year the chronograph technique was invented. With its classic design details, the first designed timepiece in the Skov Andersen collection could therefore be named nothing else than 1815.
Each timepiece is made unique with its individual number engraved on the case back. The watch is carefully designed with quality materials, sapphire glass and beautiful royal blue details. A chronograph watch with a clean and classic design in the perfect size for all gentlemen.
The ocean and its wildlife have always acted as a great inspiration for us. With our Turtle watches, we want to give back to the turtles. We do this by supporting the Turtle Foundation.
For each Turtle watch sold, we ensure that 20 hatchlings of the endangered species Green Turtle can get a safe start in life.
With the launch of the Blue Turtle Edition we saved more than 20.000 turtles!

I bought the watch a few weeks ago. I really like the watch, and colors.
impressed with package and attention to detail. The watch itself exceeded my expectation
I purchased this watch for my son for his birthday as his wife said that he had been admiring it for a while.
He was over the moon when I gave it to him, it was exactly what he wanted. The box and packing was also very lovely, a beautiful, stylish looking watch that will no doubt last a very long time.
We are so happy to hear that! Thank you for choosing About Vintage and for sharing your story with us. We hope your son will enjoy his watch for many years to come.
Have a great day!
I purchased the 1815 Chronograph with the Green Sunray dial. All told, I really like it. The strap is well-crafted and looks even better in person. I really like the green sunray dial. It is a nice change of pace from most of my watches (black or white dial). Only two small drawbacks (minor-minor, so not enough to dissuade me from keeping it). First, the anti-reflective coating on the glass is fine, but I'm getting more reflection than I expected. I think that's because of the domed shape of the glass, which causes it to draw and reflect more light.
Secondly, the hands are a bit darker in person (and maybe more narrow?) than the online images, which can make it a bit more difficult to tell the time in lower light conditions, or when glass is reflecting a lot of light. Still, it's not enough for me to want to return the watch. Definitely a keeper. And the presentation of the watch (box, etc) was superb.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We highly appreciate both your positive and constructive feedback. We do believe that the domed sapphire glass is a nice detail of the watch, but we can also understand your frustration about the reflection that can sometimes appear from certain angles. We hope you can learn to live with this minor frustration and your overall positive opinion on the watch outshines this.
Wishing you a great day!
Love this watch. Well made, beautiful face.
Thank you so much, Andrew! It means a lot to us. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for sharing you experience.
