Summary: I received my new Skagen watch in much quicker time than expected and am very happy with it. It is a very nicely designed and beautifully detailed watch. I like that it has a larger face than those I've had in the past, but not rediculously large like so many you see today. The craftsmanship of the bezel as it connects to the well-made leather strap is perfect and feels very comfortable on the wrist. I hightly recommend this watch to others.
OK - Beautiful but not happy with this loud ticking Skagen
12 December 2011
Summary: I have owned 2 other Skagen watches that have been flawless, but this one out of the box has incredibly loud watch movement. You can hear it ticking away just wearing it even in a not-so quiet area, and in a quiet room, from several feet away! Very disappointed at this point, going to be calling up Skagen to see if this is normal for this model (if not, I'll try another one). If they tell me it's normal, this is going back!
Summary: I did lots of research before buying this watch (Skagen Men's 331XLSL1 Steel Brown Leather Multi Function Watch). I read some reviews that the glass/crystal on the face of the watch has tendencies to break/crack even for normal wear and tear. I'm usually more careful so I thought it would not happen to me...but be forewarned. I only had the watch for 30 days and one morning I noticed the crystal had cracked. I don't even remember if I did anything unusual.
Summary: I got this for my boyfriend and he loves it. It's a very nice look - both casual and also sophisticated. You can wear it on a typical day or when you go out. My favorite part is the leather band - it's got a rustic look to it, not the usual sleek and polished leather. I think this is what makes it possible to wear it with casual clothes, it's not too flashy. But at the same time, the head is sleek and silver, so it goes well with fancier clothing.
Summary: the watch looks not as thin as the picture, but it looks beautiful and seem to good for asian people. The leather is a little bit hard, maybe it will be better after using. I don't have time to read the userguide how to update day of week, I have tried to update day of month and hour (small watches inside). I bought two ones from Amazon (another one is Stuhrling Original Men's ) so I decided to use this one.
Summary: I ordered this watch for my boyfriend and was so pleased with how nice it was upon arrival. Unfortunately I had not read the reviews before buying it, and learned very quickly how cheaply it must be made. Within only a month of owning it, the face developed a big crack all the way across it. He never dropped it or hit it on anything, it just cracked on its own. Sending it back is more trouble and money than it is worth.
