Skagen Men's Slim Brown Leather Watch 433LSL1

Updated on March 26, 2012

Skagen Designs was conceptualized by a Danish couple, Henrick and Charlotte Jorst who migrated to the United States from their native Denmark with the intention of putting up a business that would sell premium quality items at reasonable prices. They bring the best of Danish design that reflects clean and simple lines.

The Skagen Men’s Slim Brown Leather Watch 433LSL1 is one of the popular leather watches of Skagen. It is recommended for the outdoorsy type who love to go on hikes, go camping or have a weekend fishing trip although it would also be a choice for adventurers. It has a stainless steel bezel and case with a diameter of 34 millimeters and a very thin case of 6 millimeters. The watch has a white dial with silver hour and minute hands as well as silver Arabic numeral indicators. There is a small sub dial above the six o’clock indicator that features silver sweep second hand. Although the dial is big, it is not chunky but has a slim width. The dial window is mineral and extra care should be taken as this easily scratches. There have been complaints regarding the cracking of the crystal even when not in use. Replacement is pretty expensive at $55 which is almost the price of a new watch. The bevel is slightly sharp and the stem digs into the wrist. For those with delicate skin, it may cause a wound or a sore. If this happens, you can just take a fine file and file off the sharp edge of the stem.

The band is made of genuine brown leather and is 18 millimeters wide. It sadly does not last long with a few users using it for only a few months before it disintegrated. Since it is made of leather, the skin condition or acidity of the person wearing it is a big factor in how long the strap will last. The band is stiff and not flexible and comfortable like the mesh. Since the band is not part of the warranty, it needs to be bought and the replacement band including shipping and handling is almost the same cost as the watch itself.

The Skagen Men’s Slim Brown Leather Watch 433LSL1 has a quartz movement with a water resistance up to 99 feet which makes it endure more than a splash of water or rain. But moisture gets in easily in some watches and replacing the rubber seal did not help at all. The Japanese quartz movement and the watch itself (excluding crystal, battery and strap) has a limited lifetime warranty. Battery is expected to last 3 years and replacement is at a pretty steep $20.00.

This Skagen watch comes recommended in several online shops and is a popular watch.  Another popular watch is the Pierre Cardin watch or DKNY watch.  These are trendy watches with contemporary and classic designs including the professional looking box watch.

 Overall, buyers love the ultra thin feature on a simple but elegant watch.  Although the overall look would certainly fit the outdoors, its elegance would also work with business attire too.
