5.0 out of 5 stars Looks expensive, isn't, February 26, 2011
This review is from: Skagen Men's 572LSXM Charcoal Gray Watch (Watch)
I typically wear tool watches, nice big ones. But I needed a dress watch that will fit under my shirt cuffs. Skagen makes some of the slimmest watches I have ever seen so I thought I'd give them a go.

I was surprised by how inexpensive Skagen watches are. I found this one at Costco for $29.99. A steal for a this steel watch if you ask me.

This watch is very thin at 6.5 mm, and feels nice on the wrist. It feels more like a bracelet than a watch given how even the weighting is. The picture understates how attractive this watch is on the wrist. That said this watch probably won't get you notices (which is what I wanted). It is a nice clean design and the small size does not draw attention to it. This is probably the counter to some of the more ridiculous Invecta watches I have seen.

It has a mineral crystal, and nice Moya quartz moment (Japanese). The case back is press-on and the crown does not pull out, simply turns. The watch is rated at 3 ATM, which is enough to allow you to wash your hands. This is not a watch to wear in the water, but I already have a nice TAWATEC divers watch. The manual is rather clear on how you should interpret the water resistance ratings, and what type of activities you should think of pursing with the rating your watch has.

I was also thrown by how to adjust the bracelet size. Instructions would have been helpful, and saved me 10 minutes of head scratching. Once you understand that you have to push the pins out in the direction indicated on the back of the bracelet, it is a straight forward process to re-size it.

Bottom line I'm very happy with this watch, especially at the price. If you are buying this watch as a gift, remember to take the price-tag off. They will think you spend significantly more on the gift than you did.
