Summary: This dress watch is modern and unique, good looking and easy to understand the functions, just some difficulty seeing the small circles with the date, 24 hr clock and day. This watch is a dress watch for me and I am happy with it.
Summary: I have had this watch for about a month now. I purchased it after buying (and subsequently returning) the cheaper, smaller version of this same watch (the one with no date function). I have to say this watch is much more solidly made than that watch. I love the black mesh band - very comfortable and sturdy. The latch works very well, but I would read the directions on getting it set up (I had to use a knife to pry up the latch to adjust the length).
Summary: I have a modest collection of watches, and last Christmas my brother got me this piece. It's great looking, and was a good wear for roughly 9 months. I keep this watch in the box I received it in, it's never been wet or through any rough wear, but I woke up one morning and the face was cracked. Not scratched, cracked. I've got six watches right now that I've had for 2-3 years on average, this is the newcomer, and it's a shame that it's unwearable already.
Summary: The watch-face was a bit bigger than I anticipated. My wife bought me my first Skagen at Costco as an anniversary present over a decade ago. The reason I love Skagen is that the watch is very thin and doesn't get caught-up in my clothing (shirt, sweater, coat) when dressing & undressing (Yeah, I know... why don't I just take it off before that? Well, just because I've fallen into a habit and just plain "don't".) The only thing my first watch lacked was a date feature.
Summary: Its simply a very elegant and stylish watch with a gleaming blue dial that stands out. Feels extremely light on your wrist and very comfortable to wear. You will get used to the clasp mechanism in a couple of wears. It comes in a premium Skagen packaging. And yes its definitely Worth the penny considering its the RED dot design award winner 2011.
Summary: In spite of problems with the first watch order (a different provider), this watch was received in time for Christmas. Thanks to everyone at amazon for everything they did to help make this happen.
