I've known about Skagen watches for a few years, and always loved the slick, sophisticated look of the thin mesh band, but it took this long to actually buy one. (Confession: I'm one of those NYC $5-on-the-street watch wearers who's finally decided to upgrade.)
In the almost three months I've had my Skagen, I have not been disappointed. I wear this watch everyday and it looks good and works well (which is important, since my morning commuter train won't wait). I also love that the price is within reach for a regular work-a-day individual like myself. I look forward to many years wearing this watch and already have my eye on a couple of others to add to the collection.
(FYI: The outer clasp can come undone if it hooks to something. Thankfully, it has an inner clasp to keep the watch from falling off.)
UPDATE: A couple of hours after writing this review, I met a guy who has the men's version of this watch. He said he's worn it everyday for three years and it's the best watch he's ever owned. I took a look at it and it still looked very good, especially the glass, which was virtually scratch-free. Needless to say, it inspired my confidence in this product.
