I just bought 2 new skagen watches online and when they arrived they weren't working. is there something that has to be done to get them to start initially. i assume they do this so the batteries aren't in use while they sit on the shelves but now i don't know how to start them and would like to avoid taking it to a watch dealer

if you can return it you probably should . Though I would guess that it is the battery, the batteries are placed in at time of manufacturing and could have sat there for awhile before being sold. I see this a lot of times , its actually quite common. Its inexpensive to replace the battery but if you just bought and can return it I would.
they are very tough they have more pressure on them than most spring pins also on your watch they are tucked into the leather very well. the best way is with a spring tool apply quite a bit of pressure. a normal watch band will not fit this watch. it will only take skagen replacement bands.
I used to sell Skagen watches,don't know excatly which watch you have . I even went to their web site and couldn't find it. Most Skagens ( unless they are a chronograph with the three curcles on the dial) works like this: Your watch stem has 3 differant settings #1 all the way in #2 half way out , and #3 all the way out . To set the time you pull the stem all the way out and adjust the time. To set the date,pull the stem all the way out and turn untill the date changes ( this will make sure you have it on am-pm correctly) then put the hands at 6 o'clock. Put the stem all the way back in, then pull the stem half-way out. Start with the stem all the way in and slowly pull it out and you will feel the "click" when it is half-way out. MAKE SURE YOU HANDS ARE NOT BETWEEN 9 O'CLOCK AND 3 O'CLOCK, OR YOU WILL BREAK THE AUTOMATC DATE SETTING GEAR!!!!! Then either turn the stem clock-wise , or counter clock-wise , one of the two ways will set your date.
