Great looking, runs slow.

Summary: The Danish Skagen watch retains its looks while adopting the weak workmanship I've come to expect from Chinese products. I'm actually ordering another one with the hopes that it will run on time. It looks great, but the one I have runs slow. I gave it two stars for its design, otherwise one star.
Beautiful, thin, wonderful - as long as you don't WEAR it

Summary: One of the lightest and most attractive watches I have ever owned, and a bargain at the price. Unfortunately, the "safety clasp" on the band didn't actually clasp, so the watch fell off. Took it to a repair place which wanted $20 to fix the clasp, but they also told me that Skagen mesh bands often have this problem because of the very flimsy little pin that is supposed to hold the clasp closed. I'm lucky that it fell off onto a plush carpet, so I'm able to return it.
Summary: It looks great! It was affordable! And it tells time! This is my second Skagen Watch and I like it even better than the first. My friends and co-workers seem to agree; I have received many complements on it.
Summary: I have been wearing this watch for 10 days now and love it. I bought it to use in a hospital for taking vital signs and it works well, it is easy to read, comfortable, and light weight. I have had several people notice and compliment me on the look of the watching. I really like the band, it is very easy to adjust and doesn't pull my arm hairs or feel cheap.
Watch was running 15 minutes late on a 24 hr basis

Summary: Really liked the watch until I received it. It was properly packaged and arrived promptly. I in turn inspected the watch and it looked fine. Accordingly, I set the time and let it run over night. When I went to put it on I noticed it was running 15 minutes late... With that I reset the watch and repeated the process the next day, again aproximately 15 minutes late...
Summary: This is my second titanium watch--last one was a Seiko. I really like them because they're so light. Downside can be that while strong, titanium is actually rather soft and scratches easily. I really like the look and feel of this watch. It's light, thin, and comfortable, with nice large dial and day-date. Mineral crystal and stainless steel band will make it more scratch resistant than my last one was, I think. Very happy with the purchase--especially at less than $90!
Summary: This watch truly looks stunning. I've received many comments on the super thin (and very comfortable)mesh band. The face is simple, yet quite dressy, modern and exceptionally easy to read, even without glasses, for these 60-year-old eyes. It's also quite large, in the current fashion. I've had no issues with scratches on the crystal, even though I'm not the most careful with my watches. I work at a radio station where time accuracy is essential.
Summary: This is my first Skagen watch. The internet photo makes it look like there's a black ring just around the face, but that is a trick of the lighting. The watch is all-gray, with the dial a slightly darker gray than the case. Looks much nicer, IMO, than the identical all-black model. It has a simple, understated appearance. Could easily be worn with a suit and probably to a black-tie event as well. May look out of place with t-shirt and jeans.
Summary: This is a fine looking watch but the clasp is unreliable. I purchased the watch about 2 months ago and since then scarcely a day goes by when it hasn`t come loose and slid off my wrist. I contacted TimeZone123 to complain that a strand in the mesh band had come loose and asked for advice.
