Often seen Skagen mentioned but never seen a Skagen thread.....so I’ll fix that omission  :whistle:

Not worn a lot , but I like the look , soft leather strap, and lightness.

Any other Skagen out there ?

Going to play ?:thumbsup:

Cheers

Ironically, one of them is what started the whole WIS path for me. All for want of a replacement strap.

The geniuses use custom lugs that the strap is screwed into. Only the straps cost £35, about a third of the price of the watch, and mine lasted about a year (a couple of pieces of leather with felt in between).

If that wasn't enough, despite a few battery changes, timekeeping had become pot luck (it would lose a random number of minutes, but not consisitently, so you couldn't rely on it).

Fair to say I don't rank them highly.

I will wear a hair shirt for a week. :thumbs_up:

Don’t. It’ll be worse than your socks.

And you’ll come down with a severe case of skågen and only a Danish GP can save you.

And they are funny about antibiotics these days. Forewarned is forearmed AVO.

Are you up on verucas ? :crazy5vh:

I'm not usually too keen on Skagen designs, however I do like the top left and bottom right ones from @MyrridinEmrys collection.  :king:
