Beautiful watch! The slim design makes it very unique. The face is really simplistic and classy that makes for some nice compliments. However, the finish does scratch somewhat easily on the bottom of the band. Glass seems pretty tough. Highly recommend for the price!

I rarely write reviews, but after reading many others I decided to throw in my 2 cents. This was my first Skagen, bought in Sept. 2010 at the retail $195 price, and the battery just now died (3.5 years ain't too bad huh?). I am a professional who needs to look the part, but also do plenty of labor with my hands and I do it around the beach to boot (sand, salt, chlorine, grease, oil, sweat, etc). I do NOT take it easy on watches. This watch is elegant, very light, and for me very durable. By elegant I mean that its not large and blingy, just nicely understated...but I get plenty of compliments. I don't do "loud", in fact my watch is my only "jewelry" and this one goes with any situation . Is it a rolex, no. But for the price, I've never done better. I've gone through many Fossil's and Bulova's, Seiko's and others, all of them failed long before this one. Some reviewers seem to be awfully picky considering the price point!

I will not buy anything but Skagen for the time being. I love the slim case and lightweight, not cumbersome at all. The band has never had an issue. I will get this one fixed soon for work, but just ordered two other models for lighter work days and going out. Bottom line, if you are tough on your watch, but want something that looks like it costs a lot more than it does, this is a great choice. For the money, you will not best it. Three and a half years, not one issue, battery just now died. One of the benefits I should add is that all the scatching of the band is barely noticeable - I could probably clean it really well and buff the glass and it'd look close to new. For $100, it can't be beat and you wont feel too bad if you lose it, gets stolen, etc. The clasp is also durable and easy to use, just like the rest of the watch.

Go for it, if your not expecting a Rolex or Movado...you'll probably be happy. Especially good for a man who needs to look good and be able to WORK with their watch on too. Best watch I've had.

So was looking for a daily driver watch and did not want a huge chronograph but also did not want a simple blank face. This watch is very nicely designed and has the right set of features and of course the price was excellent. The only issue holding it back from a five star review is that it seemed to drop a lot of time (hours) and I thought maybe the battery was old and was thinking about a replacement. The next time I noticed the time being off I also saw that the crown/stem was pulled out and that is why the watch was loosing time. If you look at the design the stem is at the bottom and the crown is larger then the receiver so it has a nice lip to catch on and I assume this is what is happening. Once I figured that out I have been spot checking and without a stem issue no time has been lost. The other issue/annoyance is that the included instructions and website manuals, do not provide details for how to remove bracelet links and the different 3rd party sites give differing instructions. So may require watch smith or jeweler to do.

Recently had an issue besides the stem, which is that the band where links are not removeable are basically pressure snaps. Meaning that the inside on one link has some recesses and the outside of joining link has some bumps. Was mopping and hit band on island (granite counter top) and popped the band. Upon checking the bump on the inner side is gone so band and watch is not a dekstop item. Company warranty is lifetime excluding: battery, glass, bands, straps, bracelets, exposed crystals and other embellishments. Will contact company and see if they favorably respond.

I gave this as a gift. He absolutely loved it. After wearing this watch, he was looking at other Skagen styles. So light weight that you don't realize it's on. Very sleek. It actually looks better than the picture.

The watch face has a nice layout and a clean look to it. While the glass on the front has no marks on it after using/owning it for a little over a month (haven't had anything that has scratched it); the links and clasp are considerably scratched after everyday gentle use. My previous cheaper fossil watches took months to achieve the same amount of scratching, this one has on it after a month of use. So, having said that i have previously just bought cheaper fossil watches, i was surprised when i was unable to set the date one day forward after a 30 day month. I contacted customer support stating that i was unable to change the date on the watch, and that i was following the directions included to the letter. They, stated that they included a set of the instructions and i should follow them to try and set the date of the watch and if that didn't work i would have to send it in for repair. I was expecting to have to have the watch repaired, but was surprised when they stated i would have to pay to have it shipped to Texas and pay a $8.50 charge for them to do any work on it. The watch is 32 days old (yes i know its past its 30 warrant) so, i was expecting a little more from them, than what i received.
Having paid over 3 times what i normally pay ($40 for a fossil watch) i was hoping to receive a higher quality watch. Unfortunately, the experience i have had with the watch and company have been far more inferior. After this, i doubt i will ever buy a Skagen watch again.

I bought this as a gift for my husband. He's tried to wear it a few times, but the band pinches and pulls out the hairs on his wrist. Ouch! I will have to replace the watch band.

I got this watch as a Christmas gift this year, and I have absolutely loved it from the start. Firstly, it is very light and durable. The titanium is much lighter and more comfortable than stainless steel, and the all metal construction ensures that the watch won't break or need pin replacement. The only fault with the watch, however, is that the titanium accumulates some minor and barely noticeable scratches more easily than a stainless one would, but none of them are major or glaring.

Secondly, the ability to display 24-hr time, the day of the week and the date is a wonderful feature to have.

The most important part of a watch though is the ability to keep time, and it has been a rock solid timekeeper since I first set it.

On a purely aesthetic level, the watch is very nice looking and easily serves as both a dress and a casual watch. At night the dials are surprisingly bright and easy to read as well.

All in all, there is nothing that I am able to complain about in this watch. I'm very pleased and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good looking and functional watch.

I love this watch. I never even heard of Skagen until I went looking for watches on Amazon after I got a Gift card. They were by far the finest looking watches I saw, and I looked at all brands. Very classy, modern and sharp. This was my favorite one and Im glad I got it. I went to see if there was one available locally so I could see what it looked and felt like, but I could not find this model. The ones I looked at impressed me though. I found the small dials a little hard to read (Im 62) but when I got this one I did not have that problem The dial color is a very dark gray(almost black) and the finish on the band and case is a brushed metal. The setting stem does not stick out like in the picture.The watch is very light and it feels like Im not wearing a watch at all. VERY comfortable.I have a small wrist and removed two of the links to give me a perfect fit. Note: the first few links on the band are solid and the others are flexable but not much, so if you have a wide wrist it might not lay flat. The case shape gives the look of a very slim watch because it is only thick in the middle. Overall I would recomend this highly.

Generally, I'm not a hater - just read my other reviews. I bought this because I got too fat for my 16 year old Citizen Titanium. Well, old is still gold.

This watch has several flaws, one fatal. First the fatal flaw:

The small button that is used to adjust time will get snagged on your pant pockets and get pulled out, like when you're adjusting time and date, etc. This effectively stops the watch or worse, the time gets changed and stops the watch.

Titanium is one of the hardest and lightest metals. The bracelet gets scratched by wood, so I don't see a point to a titanium bracelet on this one.

It is not slim , as advertised. They try to make it look slim if you wear it tight, which I don't. As a result, I have this huge scratched box on my wrist that does not work at times.

On the positive front, the dial is sapphire crystal and does not scratch. Which is too bad, because I really want to justify getting a new watch. Will not be a Skagen / Fossil though. Once bitten...

I was stuck between this watch and the Citizen Modena II. I decided on the Skagen because the Citizen's glass was very bulbous, and distorted the view of the face of the watch when viewing from an angle. This watch's glass is not flat either, it does have a slight 'dome' effect, however there is no distortion. I believe this is due to the Modena's 'eco-drive' technology, however if it sacrifices the look of the watch, I'd much rather change a battery every two years.

The only thing this watch is missing is notations for 24-hour time, or 'military time'. Aside from that it has everything I was looking for. Although it has already sustained some scratches on the wrist band, I have had no other problems with it yet. For the price, this is the sexiest watch you're going to find until you get into the $300+ range.
