Skagen 233XLTMB Review
In 1987, two persons came to the United States from their native Denmark to follow a dream: that of owning and running their own business. With their sheer hard work and dedication, they were able to do it. Those two persons were Henrik and Charlotte Jorst and the brand that they found was Skagen. They founded the designs on the principle that beautifully designed high-quality objects can be created at reasonable prices.
Skagen 233XLTMB Men’s Titanium watch features a dramatic black dial face, which is encased by a mineral dial window for extra protection. For your time-telling convenience, white Arabic numerals bring a stand-out contrast, an additional ring of Arabic numerals provide a 24-hour clock, and a handy date calendar rests at the six o’clock position. Being completely black, this can go with several different colors of your clothes & moods too!
Being a modern watch, the movement can’t be mechanical. Electronic movements have few or no moving parts, as they use tiny quartz crystal to provide a stable time base for a mostly electronic movement. That’s why electronic movements are called quartz movement too.
Quartz watches are extremely accurate. Their margin of error is less than one second per day. Quartz movements are powered by a battery, so therefore they do not rely on motion and moving parts alone like an automatic, which results in servicing being much less expensive.
“Dial “in Black
The perfect accessory for work or for party, this striking timepiece showcases your refined taste. This stunning black colored dial features silver-tone Arabic numerals, a date calendar at six o’clock, a subtle 24-hour display, and silver-tone hour, minute, and second hands.
Silver detailing on black base gives you a perfect reading that you need to know the right time. Titanium is used for dial case. Now strength and toughness is where Titanium excels. It defeats steel in terms of lightness (weight).
Another area where titanium is excellent at is corrosion resistance. The dial itself reads “titanium”. So, need not to worry at all. Get the best for the finest side of you!
Designer could have given a plain and blank steel band but creating a mesh with it deserves applause. This doesn’t add much to the weight of this Skagen watch and at the same time looks premium. It is easily adjustable and has the appropriate length. Fold over clasp has been given to provide a tight firm but a safety over it completes the motive.
