Gorgeous watch for a great price. Just one quirk that may or may not matter to you.
on January 28, 2014
This watch is gorgeous. I can't actually tell immediately whether the woven carbon fiber pattern is real or fake, but it looks quite real.
- It is a bit bigger than other Skagen and Grenen watches
- The way the band is attached to the watch is nice looking, but has a quirk. You cannot lay the watch completely flat. And if you try to fold one band over the other (for instance, to put it in your pocket while cooking or washing your hands) it does not flatten, as most other watches would, and instead stays curled up and bulky. Previous Skagen and Grenen watches had a more conservative band attachment with the spring-pin thing, which allowed them to fold flat. It may not be a big deal to you, but I had gotten accustomed to being able to put my watch in my pocket without difficulty or discomfort.
- The date is recessed, and the metal reflective ring around it makes it the tiniest bit difficult to focus on the numbers, and you have to look at it for a couple seconds to see what day it is, instead of immediately recognizing the numbers.
