Product Description

On the pulse of current fashions, this Skagen timepiece has amazing curves that hug the wrist in signature Skagen style. Sporting a smart blend of design and master craftsmanship, this watch is the definition of affordable luxury.

In the heart of Scandinavia, where the northern-most tip of the Danish peninsula known as Jutland bends East and breaks the surging waters of the Kattegat and Skagerak seas, lies a small and picturesque fishing village. Its name is Skagen - the Skaw - and for connoisseurs of Northern Europe it is associated with a unique charm that is the result of the fusion of nature-given and man-made romanticism. At Skagen the elements can rage and reduce mankind to mere extras in a veritable power struggle between the sky and the sea. Here, time stands still, all sounds vanish, and nature is so compellingly beautiful that it takes your breath away. Here the perfect purity and beauty explain where Danish design found its unique qualities, and where the international company Skagen Designs found its name. In 1989, Henrik and Charlotte Jorst came to the United States from their native Denmark to follow a dream: that of owning and running their own business, to introduce the Danish lifestyle and philosophy into the lives of many. Skagen Designs was founded by these two natives of Copenhagen on the principle that beautifully designed high-quality objects can be created at reasonable prices. The Skagen Denmark Collections reflect owners Charlotte and Henrik Jorst's creative Danish spirit with clean, elegant designs, skillful craftsmanship and technical perfection. The Jorsts have a hand in designing each piece of the Skagen Collection, from watches to jewelry to sunglasses. Our mission is to create a global community of enthusiasts with our commitment to designing an impressive and unique yet attainable product.

    This is one of the best watches that Skagen sells in my opinion. It is a very versatile watch that can be worn with formal or informal dress. This is one of my favorite watches.

    This watch looked nice in the photos but that can not be the case when it arrives. This one looked better than expected and I'm totally pleased with the purchase.

    Slim profile, quality band, just an outstanding watch overall. Easy to adjust, minimal guidance needed to set second time zone.

    I only had mine for a few days, and there is a big crack across de glass from top to bottom. I don’t remember dropping or hitting it, so I would not buy another one or recommend it.

    I bought this watch as a temporary replacement for my Tag Carrera GMT, which after 13 years quit working and will cost $500 to 'overhaul'. The expensive watch that keeps you paying... I am a pilot and I need a second time zone (GMT). Aviation weather is all in GMT, and I travel internationally as well, so it has a real function. (But if you're not a pilot, you could use the second time zone hand as home base time, if you're travelling.) But I hate the look of those Breitling pilot watches. (You know, large watch = small *%&*). So I bought this watch at a great price here. And I don't regret it at that price. In terms of build quality and appearance it exceeded expectations. I was impressed when I pulled it out of the box. The watch works great. It's easy to set the time etc. My only complaint, the only reason I would not give it more stars, is that it can be difficult to read the hands. The hour and minute hands could stand out better. As for the GMT hand, it's so thin and wispy it's very hard to read. You need bright light. And they have put a 24 hr clock around the border, but you need a microscope to read that. So you have to know that the 6 o'clock position is 12, and 9'oclock is 18, etc. And then try to find the GMT hand. But like I said, it's really a great build quality for this price, and overall I'm happy. I'll probably be using this watch for a year at least, while I cope with the outrage of having to pay $500 to fix my TAG watch which I already spent over a thousand on. Shouldn't service be free when you spend the big bucks?

    Caution! Some Amazon watch photos make objects appear bigger than they are. I think that is almost certainly the case with this Skagen GMT/alarm watch. And it's probably not Amazon's fault for this, since I imagine the manufacturer provides Amazon with the photos, or images, of the product. But I was really kinda shocked when I opened the box and saw what I first thought was a different watch from the one I ordered.
    I chose this blue-dial version of the 853XLS because there appeared to be good, sharp contrast between the relatively large white hands and the deep blue dial, as shown in the photo. I am prepared to swear that the hour and minute hands on the watch I received seem smaller...long story short, I was hoping for a watch that can be read easily at a quick glance from any angle in most light conditions without my reading glasses, and this is NOT that watch. So, a little disappointment, but the watch is, overall, fairly good-looking.
    Pro: Nice size, full 40mm with big, open dial. Not at all thick or heavy.
    All the functions seem to work well and setting protocols are easily mastered.
    Alarm is easy to set to within about half an hour of accuracy.
    Nice soft leather strap that is big and bold enough for the size of the watch.
    The dial is a great shade of blue, very eye-catching

    Con: Leather strap won't stand more than one summer of human wear in a humid climate.
    Getting a replacement strap may be a real hassle, according to on-line blogs I've seen.
    Alarm cannot be set more than 12 hours in advance. Alarm will go off at both 5AM and 5PM unless you turn it off. Alarm probably won't wake you up if you are sound asleep, but can be useful as a timer-reminder during waking hours.

    Within 2 hrs of putting on mineral dial glass was broken. Was just wearing around inside of house. Owned another skagen and never had a problem with it. Not sure if they started using cheaper minerals in watches or if it is only this watch, but i would not buy this watch again.
