Nice watch for general wear and nice occasions
17 November 2011
Summary: This watch is a great balance of everyday and too nice to wear everyday. It looks great and for the price it is a good buy. I love the stainless weave strap it is comfortable and more size friendly than links, plus not pins to deal with in sizing. Only downside is the adjustment knob can poke at the wrist a little, not so much for sports wear.
Summary: I was looking for a watch that looks elegant, but is light weight. I was also tired of arm bands getting broken at the ends. So I was shopping at the local mall when I saw this. I fell in love with it on the spot! I knew this is what I wanted. I found out that Amazon sold it for way less. I still get a lot of complements. Now for the negative - the arm band is made out of a metallic (titanium?) mesh.
Summary: For those of us that live our lives to the millisecond, THIS is the watch. There's no second hand, nor any other garbage junking it up! More often, less is best. It's both casual and elegant. It's simple and lacks the gauche gaudiness of higher priced metal-wrist-chunks. It's so unobtrusive and so thin that it fits like a glove! I've received many compliments about how good this watch looks.
Summary: Very attractive watch - clear, spare design - easy to read face with luminous marks that are barely funtional in the dark. The clasp didn't work well at all - I almost lost the watch numerous times because it didn't snap shut properly. I was able to adjust the metal closure hook with a pair of plyers and now it works reasonably well. Does not have a second hand or a date marker. This is a watch more for dress than for everyday.
Summary: this is my second skagen watch, am really pleased with it. i lost a pin from the band 3 days after receiving this, and skagen replaced it promptly. great watch, great service. 5 stars (i clicked on 4, meant 5).. EDIT: as nice as the watch is, the band is HORRIBLE. the watch has fallen off my wrist 3 times over the last month. last night, on the subway. soon, will probably lose it (or it will get damaged). would change my review to 1 star if i could change that.
Summary: I last bought a Skagen watch two years ago. The quality was excellent, and I have been happy with the watch ever since. Unfortunately, the quality of Skagen watches appears to have gone down in the interim. I ordered this watch because it looks classy. While the face is classy, the band leaves something to be desired. Skagen has decreased the width and thickness of their watch bands. The band looks far too small for the size of the face.
