I'm wearing the skagen on the left right now. I am no watch expert. I like the styling, they're thin and unobtrusive.
However, in my experience, durability leaves something to be desired. The crystal cracked within a week of purchase and no particular punishment. That was a year ago; luckily, I bought it at Nordstrom and they insisted on giving me a new one. Last week, the metal ring around the date fell off, and before I knew it, got caught on the day and hour hand, stopping the watch. I'm probably going to send it back for repairs. I bought my niece a skagen and two of the numbers came unglued. Also purchased from Nordstrom, she also got a new one. Thanks for letting me vent.
Nice thread, btw.
