This watch is just as advertised. While I purchased it as an everyday nonobtrusive time piece, it is elegant enough to wear for any occasion. It is unbelieveably light and comfortable. And it has one other attribute which is difficult to find in a watch today - it just tells time! As mentioned in one of the other reviews, it did inexplicably stop once for no apparent reason. A little shake and it started right up and has been operating perfectly for over six months. Unless it happens again I will consider that a one time glitch.

Elegant, well made, just the right size watch that is not full of fluff. This watch just makes sense. Why pay more when you can have a watch that works with an elegant design and looks like you've payed more than the actual cost. Stainless steal construction case, with attractive looks and a leather band to give a rich look. What more do you need in a watch? The watch works with casual dress or corporate suit wear. Excellent watch for almost any occasion.

Skagen makes fine men's and women's watches. While the trend for men in the magazines now is watches that could double as boat anchors, Skagen has gone the other way. This watch is stylish, easy to read, and thin thin thin. The light weight and thin profile are a big hit with me.

I get more remarks about this watch than any other I have ever owned, generally about the low profile and the stylish look. And the price can't be beat - look inside the display case at your favorite store and see what $50 will buy you. I have a Swiss Army wear everywhere watch, and this is my dress watch for work and formal occasions.

This is a replacement watch for the last I owned, it was very little more than the cost of ordering a replacement leather band.

I intend to keep purchasing Skagen watches for the indefinite future.

I like thin sleek watches, I own a Movado which is also very thin...This watch is nice enough to wear with a suit but also versatile enough to wear every day with casual wear. Its very light and you forget you even have it on. Very comfortable!

I bought this watch for my best friend's birthday. It was my first time purchasing a watch, and I wanted to get a brand that exuded quality (I hadn't done much research prior, either) without being too expensive. This watch seemed to be perfect, as it was sleek, stylish, and modern-looking.

Upon receiving the watch, I was happy with it overall. It was just as pictured, or perhaps, even more beautiful in person. The only reason I give it a 4 rather than a 5 is because it was a bit too small for my taste. I was scared it wouldn't fit my friend, as it seemed small enough to fit a woman. I'm not sure what I was expecting exactly -- though actually, this is my fault for not looking into the dimensions that were provided.

Despite that, I love the watch! I would purchase a Skagen again.

Why pay 10 times more for a similar watch? If you love minimalist design and subtlety, you might love this watch.

I was very happy when I received this item, so happy that I had to place it on my wrist immediately. This watch is as light as air, the craftsmanship is superb and I really love showing off this watch.

The watch has a classic appearance for an evening/formal function while it can also be an office or a sporty watch. It simple fits every occasion.

I am a watch fanatic and this is my first piece from Skagen and it certainly will not be my last

I've been buying Skagen watches for a number of years and really enjoy the super slim 5mm case thickness, and great looks. I always get compliments for something so light weight and unobtrusive that I often forget I'm wearing it. My preference is for leather bands, not metal or rubber. I don't shower or swim with them but you can. It has a very classy but understated style, it doesn't scream wealthy playboy, but instead shows reserved class and style.

The trouble is battery life, I think it's mainly due to shelf life with the battery engaged, but luckily replacing the battery is a five minute procedure a five year old can handle. The batteries are cheap and readily available in Walmart or the like. They are simple watches that don't have all the bells and whistles like lighted dials or alarms, but they always keep good time and get about a year from a 2 dollar battery.

I have 9 of these watches now and love each of them. I picked up ten replacement batteries for 9 dollars and can have it changed in a snap. I get two years after changing out the original battery, as opposed to the year with the stock one. All in alll my favorite design and look. You wont be disappointed if you understand the battery replacements are cheap and easy.

I bought this watch nearly five years ago on a whim. What a great decision!

Five years later, it still works like clockwork (pun intended). The only thing I've had to replace is the battery. It's about time to replace the leather band though. But it still accurately keeps time and the crystal has only one or two small scratches (my fault - smacked a metal handrail).

Even today I constantly get complimented on its thinness and clean design. It looks sharp without looking gaudy or overdone. It works great with a suit and I love that the sleeves of my long-sleeve dress shirts don't get caught on it like they do with thicker watches. It's extremely light and you barely notice you're wearing it.

I've learned my lesson - you can spend $30+ on a crap watch that you'll have to replace every year, or spend a little more at first and be rewarded with a quality watch that will give you years of reliable use.
