    I had one for about 5 minutes. It was one of the carbon fiber/titanium models on the mesh bracelet with a Miyota day/date movement. Looked great, but the movement and clasp felt like a cracker jack toy. I sent it back to Amazon.

    I purchased a Skagen for a non-WIS friend. I was impressed with the fit and finish, and the leather strap was good quality. The box was nice too and the friend was very pleased with the presentation, and afaik it's still working great for him.

    The small seconds model which I gave him was particularly thin even for a skagen (and minimizes the graceless quartz hand movement ) . He's hoping to be a composer so the light weight and size was a big plus.The elegant understated looks are readable and versatile. A non WIS watch but a good one IMO.

    Skagen garbage watch, garbage company, garbage service - Skagen: I am a disappointed paying customer: Paid US$180 on board of an Air Canada flight (I do not know why, its clicking kept me awake later, during this flight) Then had a damage on the watch, wanted to BUY spare parts: No address to talk to, when you find the address, no one speaks to you back, ignoring you ("go .... yourself" is what Skagen say, "you already purchased our watch, we do not need you anymore"), the Skagen watch is clicking so loud, clicking like an old wall metronome, why would anyone be so stupid to buy this piece of garbage, with such a garbage service? I am very disappointed from this Skagen watch; I packed it and sent it "registered" back to the owner, as a donation to his family, that uses my money and garbage on me. Do not buy Skagen, it is a piece of garbage, and they dump on their customers.

    Decent watches for the money. I've had one for well over a year now without any issues.

    they're crap. just my opinion. they're a designer watch, nothing more. Slightly above fossil. Save the money and buy a Seiko or Hamilton
    vs
    This is why I don't buy quartz.

    I think you've made your point in multiple places, including your own thread. There is no need to dig up every Skagen post ever made and copy this response.

    Thank you for your comment. I am so mad on this company, and I think there is a point to do it, just to make sure no one else falls into this Skagen trap. There is no reason whatsoever for their way of conducting business, unless they think they will get away with it. They will not.

    I've never owned one. I recently read some reviews about a Skagen titanium mesh band, and a common complaint was the unraveling of the mesh. I do like their styling. But when I hear reports that a company does not reply to communications, I won't buy that company's products. That's why I don't buy Casios--wrote to them a number of years ago, and never got a reply. For me, that's the quickest way a company can lose my business--by failing to answer mail or email.
