Skagen Watches

Fact: time happens whether you're watching or not. So, how does that make you feel? A little cheated? Like time's sneaking around behind your back? Like it's doing something devious right under your nose? Well, that's why we're selling these Skagen Watches. Wearing one is like saying, "I'm onto you, time!"

Smaller than Invictas, for sure. Do you wear a watch? What kind is it?

(Is this when I break out the "What time is it?" "Time for you to get a watch." thing? No? Okay, forget this part then.)

I'm just hanging out, really.

I think that's an understatement. These watches are very thin!

I've been looking for a watch for a while and these are tempting, but Skagen has much more fun designs IMHO (oh and I spent too much money on woot in these past couple of days ;-)

Not bad watches. I have a Skagen I picked up from Costco about a year ago. It _looks_ thin but is not actually as thin as it appears. No one notices but it should be noted.

I lost a pin in mine. I hardly wear watches so losing a pin with as little wear as it got was unnerving.

They are pretty durable, hasn't scratched yet, and they definitely can get some looks...

I just bought one of these watches on Amazon last week. I love mine!! I love thin thin watches and these are nice and thin. I'm going to have to go for the rectangular one this time. The one on Amazon i paid $100 for, so $60 is not a bad deal.

I also wish Skagen would make some men's looking watches for women's sized wrists.

I have one (an older version of the black face). We bought my wife a "matching" version last year(mother-of-pearl background instead of the black, women's version).

Love it, always get nice comments on it.

Not really much of a deal, this watch brand is similar to invictas and several others wherein their business model is to have overinflated prices which are offset by very frequent sales.

These watches are okay, more for looks than mechanics, I own two of them and am happy (I expected them to get broken in a short time, yet after a year of intermittent use they are still fine).

Oh yeah, one other thing, if you have amazon prime you can get this watch shipped to you for $2 less.

One other detail about Skagen, they are owned by a Danish couple which launched the company in America about 20 years ago, so it is an American-based company (which may actually be more of a selling point than the whole 'Danish' watch angle).

i was eyeing the men's round with the same idea; I don't like how TINY women's watches are, but men's watches seem to be in a solid trend of hugeness. a watchface that is larger that my wrist has too much of a Flavor Flav vibe going on.
Does anyone have the men's watch? can you speak to how it would look on a lady's "delicate wrist" (yes, I know they have the dimensions, but it's still hard to envision).

From the looks of it, this is actually the 430LSXB1 rather than the 430LSXB (only difference I can spot is that the B1 has the markers whereas the 430LSXB is just the bare black face. Can anyone confirm?

This is going to sound crazy, but it helps me to get a visual of what something will look like on my wrist or finger.
I just found a spice jar in my cupboard that measured exactly 34mm in diameter on the bottom. I placed it on a blank piece of paper and drew an outline around it on the paper. I then cut the circle out, and placed it on my wrist to get an idea of how the size would look on. It really helps me to get an idea of what to expect when it arrives and I've never been disappointed in using this method.
Hope this helps.

BTW...
The 34mm paper circle looked fine on my wrist. :-)
Not too big at all, and I've got fairly small wrists, around 6.5 inches.

I love Skagen watches. I have 2, they're awesome. Nice contruction, light weight, really nice designs. Also, Skagen has lifetime warrantees on all their watches. Just email their customer service and they'll take care of you.

I believe a lot of their men's styles are also available in women's sizes.

I'm having a lot of trouble finding a replacement watch band for the Skagen I bought two years ago. My local watch shop said Skagen started handling replacement bands themselves, but they don't sell them online. I'm beginning to think they expect customers to pay a $32 "repair" fee plus $8.50 shipping to send it to them for a simple watch band replacement. I have an email out to the company, waiting for a response.

Sorry, Woot, not much of a deal. $49.75 on your parent company, Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/Skagen-Womens-358SSSD-Silver-Bracelet/dp/B0000C9ZD1/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Also, since I have Prime, free shipping whereas you charge $5. So, really, it's $44.75 vs. $49.75.

Booooooooo.

Hmmm, you are correct. It is the 430LSXB1, our supplier gave us the wrong model #.  However, when you research it both come up and yes, the only diff is the markers.  All the features/specs are for the 430LSXB1.  The item pictured is the item you are getting.

Thanks! Sadly it sold out a minute after I posted I love the minimalist styling of Skagen though, they look great

I have had the 358SSSD (with the silver face) for 4 years, and I love it! It's slim and goes with everything. I have a small wrist, and this one can be adjusted super small so it doesn't slide around - but it's also very easy to re-adjust the band, so if you're stuck somewhere hot and humid and your wrist swells, you can easily adjust it.

So I have a larger wrist. How long of a band is:

Band Length Men's Standard

What is a standard length? (No jokes please!!!)

Is the 107SSSB1 a stretch band? I have tiny wrists & like the watch but don't want it to hang face down when worn...

Ditto for "Women's standard". Pet peeve of mine. It can mean 6.5" up to 8". Is it really that difficult for a manufacturer or retailer to provide the actual minimum/maximum sizing available with the included band?

I own a few men's Skagen watches. I have thin wrists so they work great for me size-wise. The quality and workmanship of the designs is superb. Great watches all around. I would have added one of these to my collection but the one I like is sold out. Great price for a stylish and reliable timepiece.

I was given one of these as a gift several years ago (430lsxb). The specs said 'water resistant to 100ft'; I think they misspelled 'do not get wet'. Don't expect to wear this watch while swimming, even in shallow water for short periods of time. I spent 20 minutes in a 3-5ft deep pool and noticed the inside of the glass was fogged up. Brand new watch with the back never taken off and it leaks in 4 feet of water... nice.

If you don't get in/around water much these are nice looking watches for a reasonable price. If you enjoy being in/around lakes, rivers, pools, oceans or even vigorously washing your hands, you might want to look elsewhere.

Thanks for the heads-up. I was about to pull the trigger for wifey. She needs a beater watch-Tired of her coaching softball in her Cartier.

I got a Baby-G Shock Casio instead for same money. Let's see her destroy that watch !

LOVE Skagen watches... I have three and my hubby has one that I got him. Unfortunately, it is too tight. It is a big guy at 6'4" and yknow, not skinny or anything. Fortunately, Skagen will ship you extra links if they have them. Haven't gotten around to trying that yet.

I have a skagen I've had for roughly 3-4 years, been a daily wear watch through waiting tables and now in a pool store (hint: chlorine). I have small wrists, and most watches (fossil and the like) are WAY too big on me, but the skagen is great!

The crystal is scratched up a bit, but by no fault of the watch itself, I'm just rough with it, a few of the inner band links have kinda "stretched out" where the metal has opened up a bit, but nothing that's worried me (again, years of daily wear)

Also, my skagen is titanium-whatever-fancy-alloy, weighs nearly NOTHING! (and the fact it has mickey mouse on the face is a big bonus too, haha!)

tl;dr...skagen made a great daily watch for me, will probably replace with another skagen.

these are made to look good but are low end watches, mine fell apart after a week. i returned it to amazon and reordered one with a leather band, lasted longer. still are Chinese made, you can see that when you change the battery. Denmark in their mind china makes them money.

It was a gift from my wife. Very nice watch and very sturdy. I have to say I love the sapphire crystal. I have beat the heck out of it and doesn't have a mark. That said...it is not a deal. But you do have to like the fact that you never have to set it (perpetual calendar & atomic clock sync) and the battery never needs changing (solar charging). The chronograph is handy too.

The Plus deals are select deals of product that we can't sell on the main sites for various reasons like it being too niche or the small quantities available.

They're generally good deals in their own right but they're not going to have the deep discounts that you're used to seeing on the daily sales. This is due in part to the smaller quantities (i.e. no volume discounts). In some cases, the deal is improved if you take advantage of the $5 all day shipping.

As always, we know our wooters are serious consumers and will hunt down the best price available. We expect no less of you.

Hope that helps. Happy shopping!
