Summary: I love Skagen. I bought one of their watches 18 months ago and my only issue with it was that it didnt' have a second hand and I need one for work. When I saw this watch on Amazon, I couldn't believe my luck! Water resistant, second hand and date are all features I love. Highly recommend!
Summary: I was afraid that the watch will turn out to be too 'masculine' for me. When the package arrived, I am pleasantly pleased that the watch is a nice size for me and it is also very stylish and sleek. It can be worn to all occassions. I love the watch!
Very disappointed in this model ( from a former Skagen lover)

Summary: First, allow me to say that I adore Skagen watches, their comfort, style and the iconic metal mesh band. I got this as a replacement for another Skagen watch that I made the mistake of taking into the ocean (definitely my fault it died!) So on this new watch, I noted the water resistance, and thought it would be okay to wear it to the gym, (ie that it could deal with the sweat on my wrist, during a cardio workout). Not the case!!
Summary: Overall love Skagen watches and now have several. I find myself wearing this one more often then the others especially for everyday. Just a good basic watch, classic, clean line, good size for my small wrist, not too flashy. The second hand is a bit large and confusing as some have mentioned but not a big issue for me and worth the trade off for all the other good features. Just have to wait a second to read the time.
Summary: I began wearing Skagen watches in the mid-90s. The classics like this one and the original women's round face watch with brushed bezel, arabic face numerals plus date and plain mesh band are my absolute favorites. I had 3 of the original ones in a row, they got pretty beat up in medical school and residency. It was nice to have the second hand to take heart rates. I'm not sure why some complain about the second hand being too similar to the minute hand - 1.
Summary: I love Skagen watches, they are attractive, reliable and inexpensive. I own three, a brown, a black and a gold, and lost my oldest, silver color, so it was a good reason to buy a new one. :-) It was about 8 years old, always working perfectly. As a previous reviewer said, I made the wrong choice. I have the same complaint she had: you have to stop and stare at the watch to figure out which hand is moving, showing the seconds, and which one shows the minute.
Summary: I have been wearing Skagen watches for ten years. I love that they are light weight, not bulky and good looking. Last year my husband gave me three Skagen watches so I could pick my favorite. Turns out I choose wrong. The second hand is almost exactly the same size as the minute hand. I have to stare at the watch and watch one hand move before I can tell what time it is. Looks like I will be asking for a new watch this year.
