Skagen Watches


Recommended Posts

I read some review of this person who is immensely satisfied with them and buys one every 2 years after wearing them out.

2 Years is not what I would expect from the lifetime of a watch, but it could be just the job he does.

And theres no reason imho that they should only last 2 years. Unless he thinks that they are dispoable when the battery runs out of power?

Although more style than substance Skagen watches are typically well built from good quality materials so I'd not exactly expect them to fall apart.

I've only one in my collection but have been more than pleased with it. Nice titanium case and good quality leather band. It'll be around for more than two years (I've already changed the battery) :)

Post a link to that article. It would be of interest to many owners on this forum.

how did that happen?

Mineral glass is wafer thin on these watches...so that is what happens when you try and push on the snap-on back. I have learnt a lesson...it is my wife's watch...but Skagen replaced the glass for a very reasonable £20 :thumbsup: .

Problem is...the battery has just run out again. :fear:

Was that a glass with a tension ring? My local watch repairer quoted me £65 for a replacement glass for my Skagen, which is about a tenner more than the whole watch cost.

Have to have some low-priced movements. My son-in-law attempted a battery change on one of my daughter's Skagens and broke the movement (per my watchmaker's assessment). I sent it off to the Skagen USA repair center and they changed out the movement, battery, and serviced it for USD34.

My main objection to Skagen is their impossibly small crowns on most or all of their models. A real PIA. (Otherwise O.K. in their price range for a dress-type watch, IMHO.) :sleep1:

Just noticed these in the last year or so, supposed to be Denmark's finest. I read some review of this person who is immensely satisfied with them and buys one every 2 years after wearing them out.

Skagen is not worth buying. 2 out 4 watches stopped in 1 year... the last one we bought from Deals4Life (approved retailer by Skagen) had damaged cover lid (they are opening all watches that has stopped working and did not put original battery). what is even worse, not Skagen of Deals4Life wanted to recover the damage. so we have bought new skagen watch for full price and got damaged ones.

no more skagen buying! pieces of crap

Are Bering any better or is it just a case of paying more for the name in a watch with similar looks and quality? I know Bering do a ceramic range and a nice titanium poppy eye chronograph they should appeal if skagan are youre type of watch very sleek minimalist designs...quiet cool
