    Yup, I’ve got one.

    I had a similar design in black. I found the black finish wore off the strap very quickly, but apart from that it was reliable and I really like the slim design.

    I’d look for a bare metal strap in future, not sure if that one above is or not? My strap was the same design but the black finish wore away to reveal silver underneath.

    Wife has a ladies one. It is nice looking, and very slim, but it does scratch very easily (and costs £40 + waiting 8 weeks for new glass to be fitted) so she wants a new and more durable one at some point.

    Obviously that doesn’t say that all of them have easy scratch glass, but I wouldn’t buy one unless it specifically says that it has some kind of special scratch resistant glass.

    That’s useful to know given my history of trashing watches, the glass in particular. I was kind of hoping/thinking that a thinner watch might mean I’d catch it less often, hence less likely to damage the glass but…

    I bought my other half a Skagen watch a couple of years back. She was really pleased with it. It’s lasting well, although she has other watches that she wears to work etc.

    My Bro-in-law also has one and I’ve not heard him moan about it.

    The only thing I would say is that the glass on my OHs one is very slightly domed, which looks good but I imagine could make it more susceptible to knocks.

    I’m quite taken with a watch I’ve seen recently – a Skagen 809XLTTM:

    Anyone had one or another Skagen? If so, any comments on reliability/durability?
