As for the business strategies of the whatch company, I've got no idea.

Though I'm not sure about their actual reasoning for it, it could simply be because Skagen saw more opportunity in the market for their slim-line watches that no other company was taking advantage of and wanted to expand business into other, lower priced distribution points without watering down the Skagen brand as a whole.

It's almost as if they wanted a way to continue selling these watches:
350 as this: 350

While repositioning the Skagen brand with watches like this:
350


Either way, I'm not complaining. They're fantastic sub-$100 watches, and with 50% off it's hard not to buy every one just because.

Where did you get this?I want one!


eBay. Keep looking, the breakers will often post radio room clocks they can't sell elsewhere, but they're mostly Russian ones.

That looks like a gem, I searched Radio Room clock on ebay but only found a few and they are heavily tarnished.

I have a similar watch but with a white face. For $55, it's a good deal for a beater watch. Not sure why everyone else said pass on it. If you go to Overstock.com, they have tons of discounted Seikos there.

They said pass b/c it's not a logo whore status item.
It's just a well priced functional machine.

Seikos are way better than some of the stuff posted above. Not to mention better movement.

350

Agree. I paid $56 for my SNK809 on amazon a month or two ago, and I love it to death. Display back, great style, keeps time like a quartz, and an iconic cheapo like OPs above. There's no reason to buy junk when these are always available.

Anywhere to find it for Canadians? I tried your link but doesn't ship to Canada. Haven't found it elsewhere, but maybe I just suck at searching.

I think Parnis are not worth it. I had one that just stopped moving, my father had one where the lens just cracked.

Sure, they were replaced but still.

First thing I did with my Seiko was throw it down the stairs last christmas; works just fine.

The problem with Seiko is, that the dials are not always as nicely designed as I would like. Why don't they reissue something like the blue spark?
