The Minute and the Second Hands are too Similar
on January 23, 2011
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. The two hands are way too similar! Also the little window showing the date is a bit too small to see it well. Maybe it was the same size on my previous model, I just got older and don't it see so well. So, this is not a watch for impatient people over 40. :-) I like the design of the strap, that is something new. These metal Skagen straps are so sturdy, so practical! Never a problem to adjust to my narrow wrist size.
So, this is definitely not the watch I would buy again, but any other Skagen, next time without a second hand or with a very different second hand, is!
