Skagen men's black titanium mesh bracelet watch #233ltmb
Skagen Design was founded by Henrik and Charlotte Jorst of Copenhagen, Denmark with the intention of selling premium items at reasonable prices. The main products of Skagen are Skagen women’s watches, men’s watches and sunglasses. The Jorsts are hands-on in the design of each item in their collection that reflects a marriage of creative spirit of the Danish with simple but elegant designs. Skagen is a little village in Denmark which serves as an inspiration for the artists in their works of art that shows the natural beauty of Danish designs.
The Skagen Men’s Black Titanium Mesh Bracelet Watch #233LTMB belongs to the Skagen Men’s Titanium Collection. It reflects the clean and smooth style of European design. The watch is thin and ultra light reflective of the thin clean look which the company is known for. Many buyers chose this watch because it is very thin, very attractive and classy despite the spare design.
It has black tone titanium case and bezel which frames a simple black round dial that has luminous silver tone stick hour and minute hands and indicators although its luminosity is not that high. The mineral dial window is a bit delicate and is not too resistant to scratches as a sapphire coated or sapphire glass. It has a 20-mm width signature Skagen mesh band in black tone titanium plated stainless steel. A few users say that the width of the watch band is too small as compared to the bands of other Skagen men’s titanium watches but it is relative. Some users like the narrower band while others would prefer a wider band. Opinions differ on the type of finish with some liking its glossy finish while others would have preferred it matte. There are complaints which have been received regarding the band’s titanium plating, though. After a few wears, the plating peels off and it leaves the band silver with black tint instead of totally black. A fold-over safety clasp locks the watch and it is just a matter of adjusting and aligning the clasp when it doesn’t shut properly.
The Skagen Men’s Black Titanium Mesh Bracelet Watch #233LTMB wraps beautifully around the wrist and is very comfortable because of its mesh design. This watch is an in-between one. It is too dressy for casual wear but a little too casual for formal wear although this could pass off as a special occasion dress without spending a lot of money. Better yet, buy it at Skagen discount sections of online sites or distributors so you get the best value for your money.
Style is really what you pay for when you buy this watch as it does not have any other features such as stopwatch, date indicator or alarms. It has an analog display with a reliable Japanese quartz movement that carries a lifetime warranty. What’s more, it is water resistant up to 30 meters or 100 feet.
The closest relative of the Skagen Men’s Black Titanium Mesh Bracelet Watch #233LTMB is the Skagen 233LTMN with its black case, black titanium mesh bracelet, sunray blue dial and white luminous hands and indicators.
Skagen has been well known for stylish watches at a fairly reasonable price and this men’s titanium watch is definitely one of them, faults notwithstanding.
