5.0 out of 5 stars Skagen stainless steel woman's watch #107SSSBD, December 17, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Skagen Women's 107SSSBD Stainless Steel Mesh Watch (Watch)
I collect wristwatches and among them my wife and I have a number of Skagen watches. They always have leading edge styling which I really like and they are reasonably priced. I have found that they work well and for the most part I have been happy with them. I have found three negatives though. First, although the watches work well the company's quality control is not everything it should be. On quite a few of my Skagen watches the second hand does not line up properly with the second and minute marks on the watch face. So every time the second hand ticks it is between the marks, not on them. If you watch this for a minute it can be quite irritating. I have not had this problem with any of my other watch brands. The next thing is that my watch repair person tells me that Skagen has always been difficult to work with in getting parts to fix their watches and that recently the company has quit selling parts to repair shops entirely. Now you must send the watch to Skagen if you need to have it repaired. The reason this came up is that I wanted to get a new crystal for one of my Skagen watches and even to do something simple like this I had to send it to the factory. The last thing is that although Skagen stresses "Denmark" on its watches and in its advertising they don't make a point of telling you that most of the watches are actually made in China.

However, dispite these little problems they have good style and value for the money. I knew these things when I bought this watch and bought it anyway.
