Skagen men's multifunction titanium bracelet watch 596xltxm

Updated on July 5, 2011

Skagen, a fishing village in Denmark located at the northern tip of the Jutland peninsula, has served as an inspiration for a Danish couple, Henrick and Charlotte Jorst to put up Skagen Design. They migrated to New York City from Copenhagen in 1989 with the intention of creating high quality beautifully designed items at reasonable prices. This, they successfully achieved with Skagen Design which sells watches, sunglasses and jewelry.

Watches are men and women’s best friend too. It is highly necessary in your everyday life but has managed to create a fascination with different designs and forms. There are several types of watches such as men’s chronograph, men’s diver’s, women’s bracelet watch with some decorated with jewels, bangle watches and so much more.

The Skagen Men’s Multifunction Titanium Bracelet Watch 596XLTXM is a multifunction watch that combines function with design. It has a round solid titanium case and bezel. The watch’s case is rated extra large with a width of 38 millimeters and a thickness of 9.75. This watch is still considered as having a thin profile just slight bigger than the typical Skagen titanium men’s watch which is known for being ultra slim and flat. It has a curved scratch-resistant super hardened mineral crystal that gives it more resistance to scratches than the other watches with mineral crystal. The watch’s gray dial has chrome and white luminous hour, minute and second hands, hour, minute indicators and small minute indexes. The watch has additional luminous triple multifunction sub dials. These sub dials are for day of the week, date and a second time zone. The luminosity is very much improved with the hands and indicators clearly showing off the time even at night. There is a recurring problem though with the 4 o’clock indicator constantly falling off.

The Skagen Men’s Multifunction Titanium Bracelet Watch 596XLTXM has a gray titanium link band bracelet with a width of 26mm that tapers to 20mm. Its clasp is a fold over one with double push button safety. It has a quartz Japanese Miyota movement with a lifetime warranty. Battery life is expected to be 3 years. This watch has a water resistance or 3ATM or 330 feet which offers protection not only from occasional splashes but even when swimming or snorkeling.

This is an all-titanium watch. Titanium is half the weight of steel but is 30 percent more durable, can resist salt water corrosion and is hypo-allergenic which is perfect for those with allergies to metal. The Skagen Men’s Multifunction Titanium Bracelet Watch 596XLTXM is a link type men’s watch that is really lightweight. One concern though is that even though it is titanium, the case and bracelet are still prone to scratches worse than if it were stainless steel.  The face is so much improved, though as far as scratch resistance is concerned. Some users have become concerned with the glass face falling off or a semi-circular (probably stress) crack that goes across the center.

Overall, the Skagen Men’s Multifunction Titanium Bracelet Watch 596XLTXM is light weight, extremely comfortable with a beautiful design and is a multifunction watch but the issues on durability and defects is quite numerous. Sadly, the service provided by the company for these issues still leave a lot to be desired.
