I have had this watch since May 2003. I am usually very rough on watches but this THIN watch is very durable. It has gone for a swim with me in Maine and snorkled off Sarasota. It washes dishes and takes showers with me. Heck, it has even been in a serious snowball fight (and I don't wear gloves). And without missing a beat, it has joined me for creative pitches in the boardrooms of several large corporations - no need for me to wear a more stylish watch - this one IS! It's comfortable and easy to put on and take off and goes with anything. I was a die-hard Fossil fan before this watch but the designs of their watches in the last year or so have been a real turn-off. I've ha tons of compliments on this watch and can't recommend it highly enough. Skagen is up and coming and could very well give Fossil and Swatch a run for their money by appealing to their more design-conscious market with Tisot/Movado style at a very reasonable price.

I've known about Skagen watches for a few years, and always loved the slick, sophisticated look of the thin mesh band, but it took this long to actually buy one. (Confession: I'm one of those NYC $5-on-the-street watch wearers who's finally decided to upgrade.)

In the almost three months I've had my Skagen, I have not been disappointed. I wear this watch everyday and it looks good and works well (which is important, since my morning commuter train won't wait). I also love that the price is within reach for a regular work-a-day individual like myself. I look forward to many years wearing this watch and already have my eye on a couple of others to add to the collection.

(FYI: The outer clasp can come undone if it hooks to something. Thankfully, it has an inner clasp to keep the watch from falling off.)

UPDATE: A couple of hours after writing this review, I met a guy who has the men's version of this watch. He said he's worn it everyday for three years and it's the best watch he's ever owned. I took a look at it and it still looked very good, especially the glass, which was virtually scratch-free. Needless to say, it inspired my confidence in this product.

This is a beautiful, stylish, and very slim watch that matches just about anything. The clasp on the mesh band is easy to adjust. Surprisingly enough the mesh band does not pinch or pull. Having a second hand on it would make it even better, especially for us nurses... That being said the watch holds up to frequent hand washing and other "abuse" on the job.
I highly recommend this stylish watch - in fact I got another one in blue because I like it that much :)

I'm pretty damn frugal, but I'm not cheap. I only buy things that are worth the price, that I intend to use frequently. In the past, I've only bought watches that cost less than $20 from Wal-mart. As I became a teacher and realized how much I rely on my watch, I decided it was time to by something with a higher quality. After much research, this is the one I landed on, because of it's timeless look, not being too big or too small, and it's simplicity. I LOVE this watch. I can't believe the quality and the price; I would have paid more.

Bottom line: I recommend this watch to anyone looking for a classic look and functional design.

Daughter who NEVER has worn a watch chose this for the low profile and light weight for her new job. She said after a week she doesn't even realize she is wearing it and co-worker asked where she got it so he can get one for his daughter. Very nice looking.

I love this watch; it's simple and classic... not at all showy. I wear it every day and it goes with absolutely everything. Came in a beautiful box and the band was easy to adjust. No complaints.

My husband bought me this watch as a replacement for a Skagen watch he bought me some years ago. The lower quality is quite evident in the coloration, detail and overall appearance of the watch. Very disappointing.

My husband things I have a watch fetish. I really don't; just like them. The Skagen brand is beautiful, quality crafted, affordable, and durable. This is the fourth one I've purchased...and will probably buy more.

Excellent quality and finish throughout, beautiful watch, just as expected. Still have to put it through the test of time to see how it performs but on a first impression, v. lovely! First rate, timely delivery and packaging. So, all perfect or almost... v. slight difficulty, diagrams for adjusting strap length are tiny, which makes the task a little tricky, but only just. Great buy!

clasp is a piece of junk...twice it has come undone and the watch fell off my arm. Skagan said they would "fix" it for $50. I wore it for a week and am afraid to wear it now. Would never buy another.
