4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish watch, but watch band scratches easily, January 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Skagen Men's 596XLTXM Multifunction Titanium Bracelet Watch (Watch)
I purchased this watch as an upgrade from another Skagen watch. The design of the dials and the watch band were major factors in deciding on buying this watch, and Amazon just happened to have the best price.

One thing that I would have liked to know before purchasing this watch is that the watch band scratches very easily. To be more clear, it looks like the watch band doesn't actually get a scratch, it's the finish that gets a mark on it. Within the first hour of wearing the watch, the clasp had already started rubbing part of the inside part of the watch band finish off so that the matte finish had a shiny spot. After a few days at work, the bottom part of the watch band also had shiny spots rubbed on it here and there.

The luminescent watch hands don't stay lit up for long, since they involve actually being exposed to light all day before night, and if you're hiding this watch in your shirt cuff all day, the hands won't light up. The luminescent parts of this watch are the watch hands (minute + hour), the hour markings, and the multifunction dials (but not the numbers in the dials, strangely...).

I would still recommend this watch, but it might be better to go for a different watch band or a different finish (if there's one available)
