Summary: I get compliments on this watch ALL the time. I purchased it at a 50% off sale at the Skagen store in The Block at Orange in Orange, CA, and I rarely wear any other watch in my collection. It's simply stunning. Lookswise, this watch is hard to beat. The rose gold plating against the black steel is striking and goes with almost any look. Also, the rose gold hands and markers stand out quite nicely against the flat black face.
Summary: Purchased last year, I initially saw it at a store so got to try it on and look at it. Then preceded to find the best price on the internet, which was on Amazon (by quite a bit). Works great, looks very nice. It is very slim and lightweight. I was looking for a non-leather band as well so this fit the bill perfectly.
Summary: This is a beautiful watch. It is also very fashionable. The watch is thin and lightweight with a large easy to read face. Rose colored face and hands contrast with dark face and band. This is my second Skagen watch and I am very pleased with the quality.
Summary: The face is really large, its great if your older and dont want to wear reading glasses to see the time. The fit is and finish are Skagen, slim and lightweight. The watch case color is unique (rose gold) but not same color as pictured seems a duller apperance and more gold colored,otherwise its OK, Skagen does have better looking watches for the same if not cheaper price,so for that its 3 stars.
Summary: I have 3 Skagen watches and love them all. When I received this watch I found that the watch "face" is so large is covers my entire wrist.....I am on the thin side so I had a friend try it on (a football player physique) and it was too large for him. It is being returned.........looks good, but is impractical if you don't even see the band showing on the upper part of your wrist.
Summary: This is a simple, elegant and great fitting watch. I bought a similar, more beautiful style with the extra stuff on the face and I loved the look of it but often couldn't read the time because of the lack of contrast. Beware of the metal band.It's terrific, but you should know that after several months or a year the coating will start to come off and it is silver underneath. So, you will need to replace it, probably a little more often than a leather band.
Summary: Have ahd the watch only a month. Light weight, sleek, thin, keeps good time, get complements. Exactly what I was looking for. Being water resistant I can wear it at work (which has the potential for water events) without concern. Also, I cannot wear a watch with a leather band due to the nature of my work so the mesh metal band is perfect.
Summary: This watch is just pure style! It is sooooooo comfy to wear you really don't know you have it on. I feel it is more of a dress watch but could be worn casually too. It is easy to read and sits on the wrist so elegantly. I will wear it for work mainly with a jacket and shirt. For the price it really is a steal. I can't say anything bad about it because there really is nothing negative at all about it. Dr Guy.
