      The title says it all. It's great in the office, comfortable. One small, small complaint is that the black band is painted, and it's rubbed off a little under the wrist. This lets the steel shine through a bit. Not a big deal at all, and overall very impressed!

      Unfortunately I regret having bought this watch. The design is very nice, and comfortable to wear. Also the display is clear under all conditions. However the glass cracked within 4 weeks, and broke completely a few weeks later. The adjusting knob came off when turned backwards to adjust the time when traveling between time zones. I decided not to pay 115 EUR for repair and throw it away. worst investment ever. I do like the Skagen designs in general but I strongly hesitate to buy one again

      crystal cracked 2 times in the first two months.

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      I have had many skagen watches and the crystals are impossible to scratch or break. Somehow this model design must be flawed because they crack on their own. I saw it happen myself right in front of my eyes.

      Crystal crack problem

      By 

      from Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      Crystal cracks due to thermal cycling stress as the clock was not involved in any accidental hit, smash or any other external source of stress to crack the crystal. This calls for a tolerance design flaw as also turned to be commonly reported in other forums. Repair costs 1/3 of buying a new one. Probably will stay away from brand despite nice looks of the product.

      I love the watch, but the crystal breaks...

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      I bought this watch 2 years ago. I love the design, but the crystal is its weakness. Within 2 months I went through 3 crystals. One crystal broke while on a flight where the only thing that could have caused it was the differential in air pressure. My previous watch lasted me over a decade and I never broke the crystal. Apparently I am not the only person with this problem as I have found many reviews on this watch with the same problem. I understand from my watch repair shop that a curved crystal is much more fragile than a flat one. Skagen...please fix the design of this watch so the crystal is flat. I will buy another one when you do. Everything else about this watch is perfect!!!

      Crystal cracked - common problem

      By 

      from Vancouver, BC, Canada

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      The crystal (glass face) cracked after approximately 6 months, and I wasn't even wearing it when it developed the crack. Then while still not wearing it, the crystal developed more cracks. Based on many reviews posted in so many other places, this seems to be a very common with Skagen watches. This problem isn't covered by warranty. I do not recommend purchasing a Skagen watch.

      My Second Skagen

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      Bought first one specifically for thin case. Nice mesh strap was a bonus. I was amazed that after 4 years there was not a single scratch on the warch face/crystal. Bought this second one for the same reasons, plus it looks dressier. The first place ne is still used as a daily wear/work watch. The Melbye will be worn on more formal conditions.

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      I cracked the case of my previous Skagen watch and needed a replacement. I went back to Skagen because they had the only lightweight watches that also gave me the date and time. This new rendition in all black and easy to read letters and numbers fills the bill. It is both elegant and comfortable.

      Beautifully designed and functional

      Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

      I purchased this watch a week-and-a-half ago and I'm extremely happy with it. The watch blends a traditional analog look with a modern feel and great functionality. The date and day of the week feature next it together helps to anchor me in a fast moving world.

      Happy with my new tool and recommend to anyone looking for a sporty but mature work of art.
