Summary: This Skagen watch is light weight and stylish. It is not bulky like many men's watches and fits under the cuffs of shirts. Simple and elegant design on the face. However, little to no light is reflected from the illuminated hands and hour markers.
Beautiful but the band failed in < 2 weeks (was 2 stars, now 4) - updated

Summary: (See below for updates) The watchband attaches at the top and bottom of the rear of the watch, normal stuff. If you look at a typical wristwatch (I'm comparing the Skagen to a Timex and a Boccia as I write), the band is secured to the watch body with a retainer that could be described as a teeny tiny toilet paper roll holder that is spring loaded to hold it in position. Each end of the retainer fits into a cup, as it were, in the body of the watch.
Summary: I really like these Skagen watches and own several of them. This one has a brown face and a dark grey/black band. They are very thin, very light, comfortable watches that hug the wrist really well. The numbers are very legible in silver against the brown background. You have the normal 1-12 hour numbers and 13-24 military P.M. time numbers are inset much smaller, but still legible just beside/below their respective A.M. equivalents.
Summary: I have come to really like the quality, fell and size of all the Skagen watches I have owned. Overall they are well built and they look great and tend to stand up well. This is an excellent watch if you, like me, are interested in a time piece that is not too thick. It really lays flat against your wrist, keeping you from catching it shirt sleeves, etc.
Summary: i didn't see this watch in reality first and bought it straight away from seeing the photos. i am quite pleased with the actual watch. while a colleague said it looks a bit like made of pastics it is actually solid and made of some metal.
