Skagen 233XXLSLB Review

Skagen 233XXLSLB reviewThink of all the powerful things of world. You will see them in black! Pen- most of the times is black. Power meeting suit is black. Almost half of the world uses black mobile phones. How about a Black SKAGEN wrist watch? The Skagen brand takes its name from the fishing village of Skagen, Denmark.

The watch is Skagen 233XXLSLB Men’s Black Watch. Skagen’s signature watch style includes a smooth mesh band and simple dial with subtle indices. But this one is slightly different as it comes with a black leather band. In keeping with a European design aesthetic, Skagen watches for men are made sleek, elegant, and modest timepiece boasting quiet precision. The shiny black dial features 12 chrome and white luminous numbered indicators, a 24-hour dial and date function above the six hour.

Japanese “Movement”

Japanese quartz movement is a type of self-winding watch movement developed in Japan which uses a quartz crystal to keep time. These watches do not have the environmental impact that other watches do.

“Dial” the style

This men’s watch has genuine black leather straps connecting to a brushed stainless steel case. The glossy black dial features 12 chrome and white luminous numbered indicators, a 24-hour dial and date function above the six hour.

Smallest of the things have been given detailing. For example, a red bit is added to the second’s hand. Skagen says, “We know what we want and are not satisfied until the design, material and workmanship are all just right. The result of such hard work and dedication speak for themselves in the jaw dropping enthusiasm and excitement created whenever anyone views our product line.”

The beautiful black body is protected by mineral crystal. Mineral crystal is a kind of hardened glass which is much more scratch resistant than acrylic. Mineral crystals are also somewhat better at shatter resistance compared with sapphire.

Black “Band”

Black leather band with very tiny grain pattern gives it an ultra classy look. Leather allows molding the band according to your wrist and it gives a perfect grip. It also can stay uptight with your wrist unlike chain which keeps on loosing the grip. Be a bit cautious although when it heavily rains outside.

This one is a black beauty! The production of such lasting design pieces often demands special processes and tooling. As the company says, these are often a challenge to create; however, we are never satisfied with “close enough”. We continually push and fine-tune designs to stay true to our standards. That’s why a smart leather band has been given despite of a mesh band. Bleed black this season!
