“Not Quite a Five Star” This is an excellent product in nearly all ways – it is very stylish, very thin and the band is excellent. The day of the week (MON, TUE, etc) is written in WHITE and has a BLACK background – good design! However, the day of the month (1,2,3, etc) is written in RED and has a BLACK background – bad design!! Unless the surrounding light is excellent you will have great difficulty reading the day of the month. However, I liked the watch so much, despite this design flaw, I decided to keep it.
Charcoal never looked so good. This men’s watch features a lightweight titanium square case and a layered grey sunray dial with chrome and luminous indicators and hands, with a sleek day/date function. The bands are signature Skagen mesh in silver.
Add an edgy accent to your contemporary couture with the silvery gray Skagen titanium men’s watch, which features a sophisticated design and Skagen’s signature, ultra-thin stainless steel and titanium mesh band. The case is made from solid titanium, which is nearly 50 percent lighter than steel, but 30 percent stronger. It’s also particularly resistant to salt water corrosion, as well as hypo-allergenic–perfect for those with metal allergies. Measuring 31.5mm (1.25 inches) wide, this square case is just 6mm (0.25 inches) thick and it’s topped by a bezel with tiny machine bolt accents. It has a dark gunmetal gray dial that’s complemented by silver stick dial markers, dotted small minute indexes, silver baton hands, and a day-and-date function at 3 o’clock. Other features include a super-hardened, scratch-resistant mineral crystal and precise Japanese quartz movement.
This watch is backed by Skagen’s limited lifetime warranty, which covers all parts except strap, crystal and battery.
About Skagen Named after a fishing hamlet in Denmark on the northern tip of the Jutland peninsula, Skagen Designs was founded by Henrik and Charlotte Jorst in 1991 after the two Copenhagen natives moved to New York City. The company subscribes to the principle that beautifully designed, high-quality objects can be created at reasonable prices. Skagen watches represent the technical excellence, refined design and operational simplicity that have created the unique reputation of Danish design.
The fishing village of Skagen–the Skaw–lies where the northern-most tip of the Danish peninsula known as Jutland bends East and breaks the surging waters of the Kattegat and Skagerak seas. The spectacular natural beauty of the area is compellingly beautiful, and its white sandy beaches have been visited by artists for centuries.
Nice looking watch but beware….
I bought this watch immediately on looks and feel. Very light, the mesh band is a great feature and the day/date is really great. Classy!
However, after 6 months of wearing the watch, multiple scratches and cracks appeared on the supposed reinforced crystal face than on any other watch I’ve owned. I’m a careful user!!!
The final straw was I dropped it on a table from 18 inches and a large crack appeared in the corner and 3 of the time-position bars fell off and are currently moving at will around the watch interior.
Beautiful to look at but poor endurance and quality of build. Would not recommend to buy unless you wrap it in cotton wool!…
Sharp, light, thin watch.
Defective Date function and fogs up
