1.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, slim and fragile like an eggshell, November 28, 2009
This review is from: Skagen Men's 433LSL1 Ferdinand Quartz 3 Hand Stainless Steel Dark Brown Watch (Watch)
This is a very nice looking watch, with a surprisingly thin case (only 5mm!), but I only got to enjoy wearing it for a few months before the crystal spontaneously cracked in my dresser drawer one night. When my wife took the watch to a watch repair shop, they quoted $55 to replace the broken crystal. That's five less than the sale price of the watch - no thanks. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted, but I won't buy another one to replace the first - twenty bucks a month is a bit high for a watch rental.

Alas, yes, this seems to be a well-publicized fault with Skagen watches. Beautiful designs on these things, but the crystals break spontaneously (mine did). I'll not buy another until this issue has been addressed. And rest assured that I might have purchased several if this were not such a glaring problem.

The same thing happened to my Skagen watch. Never had any other crystal break.

Actually if you contact Skagen, they will most likely replace the crystal for free. Mine instantly exploded, too, and when I called them they didn't admit to anything, they just said "please send it to us" so it cost me $6 to repair it. 5 years later, the second crystal still holds.

You should have contacted Skagen directly. They had some defective crystals and I had a watch that did the same thing. They replaced it at no cost and i have never had a problem with it again.

I have owned a Skagen for over 5 years and never had a problem. Friends of mine that have sent their Skagen watches in to the authorized repair center have told me they honor their warranty to a fault. It sounds like a defect that has been corrected.
