Summary: This is my second skagen.I have a mesh in silver with gold accents. It is a nice looking watch. This watch is understated and gives the appearance of being thin, but it's really a trick as the center of the watch protrudes down, but is not uncomfortable. I have a cartier tank that is for real thin and a couple more high end swiss models that are thin dressy watches. This one I bought to wear with casual wear.
Summary: This watch looks every bit as good as the picture and the quality is suprisingly good for such a reasonably priced watch. Since I bought it I have seen it for sale on the high street for twice the price that I paid so it was quite a bargain. My only concern is that the strap is a specific part for this watch and I imagine will be diffecult to track down, that said it is a strudy looking strap so it should last quite a long time.
Summary: The photo does not do this watch justice, it appears a bit bulky and plain. The reality is it is understated and very classy, the gold is a satin brushed finish and the watch face is slightly oyster coloured and dual faced with an inner circle that sets the face off nicely. The indicator hands are nicely crafted and the plain brown leather strap all suggest the wearer knows what is necessary in a watch and does not go for bling and ostentatious looks.
Summary: The watch is very attractive, the combonation of a matt gold finish and brown leathyer strap together with the very slim lines is very effective. The date could be a little larger which would help us older folk, but Danish designers don't seem to like a date on the watch. My worries are the individually designed strap in leather, when it wears out where do you get a new one from, Amazon don,t seem to have this on their web site.
Summary: Eine Alternative zu den immer größer und schwerer werdenden Herrenarmbanduhren. Diese ist so leicht, dass man sie kaum spürt. Aufgrund der dünnen Zeiger und des weissen Zifferblattes ist die Zeit nicht ganz so leicht abzulesen; auch die Datumsanzeige ist winzig! Wer schlecht sieht, sollte die Finger von ihr lassen! Die Eleganz und Schlichtheit der Uhr ist aber der bewusst gesetzte Gegenpol.
Summary: Schlichte Eleganz, Messingfarbe verleiht einge gewisse Hochwertigkeit. Hatte bisher keine Probleme. Armband ist dauerhaft, sollte aber bei schweißtreibendem Sport abgenommen werden, da Leder sich nicht mit Handschweiß verträgt.
