    Yeah I saw quite a few matte black ones but this one was my favourite. Very simple, just the way I like it.

    after looking at other skagens, i'm wondering if i got a fake.

    the spelling is right
    the weight is right
    the colors and features are right
    the band is right
    the box and the case candy is right

    the only thing that is raising flags is the back cover...most skagens i've seen have a significantly larger back cover with bold letters stating its a skagen. mine is tiny, and it has a fine print saying skagen, and also mentions japan. maybe the back cover is made in japan?

    or maybe its a fake?

    While the replica watch market is very big, they tend to make copies of much more expensive watches than Skagens...

    this is the back cover of my skagen

    So...I may have ordered 4 Axcent Watches because of an epic crazy deal (all 4 were less than 1 would normally have been) that are all the same with just different colours.

    CO-ORDINATE THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR SUITS BITCHES!

    these are novelty, but pretty cool. if they are anything like the wooden watches i've played around with last year, these are SUPER light

    Just got this today:

    [​IMG]

    Nothing too fancy, a 35 quid Timex. But it's my first proper watch and in the words of a review I read:

    'This is the kind of watch that collectors fear because it's cheap and you could quite easily wear this every day and neglect the things you've spent 100s of pounds on'

    Not being a big watch guy I thought - good enough for me! :p

    This thread died so here's a little resurrecting bit for the watch lovers on here..

    I've come to know Ingersoll recently and while I'd say they do make classy watches for the price point just about every search result on them returns a no go on them. If you want classy mechanical/ automatic timepieces do check out the Japs, i.e. Seiko. Can be had for as low as USD 100 and seriously give runs for Swiss watchmakers. These are some of the Seiko models I find most desirable.

    Marinemaster aka MM300

    ... and its more popular variant, the Orange Monster

    Orient's a pretty cool Jap brand too, with more mainstream aesthetics if you ask me, but not as well-built as Seiko.

    Another bang-for-buck brand is Frederic Constant. A Swiss manufacturer with fully in-house movements with a price tag that will drop your jaw.

    Hope to hear more from the watch-loving community of SSO!

    College graduation gift from my grandparents.

    I was surprised how good it looks for the size given that I have tiny sticks for wrists. Can't go any bigger though.

    My best friends psycho bitch girlfriend stole my best watch when she flipped the shit out and moved out of the room I was letting her stay in for 2 months without getting a dime.

    Still pissed about it. But I will get a new, better watch after I have saved up from this program I want to take in the fall.

    I too have tiny stick bitch wrists, so I really like the lo profile of things like Bering or Skagen.

    One year later and I still don't own a Skagen. Maybe I'll buy one for my birthday or as a graduation gift.

    Think I'm gonna get a silver band/case watch soon once I start working, and maybe another with a blue face. Then I should be good with 4 different kinds. :lol:
