Lets start with placing this Skagen watch model within the current company line up. This is one of the more basic models, and I chose it for that purpose. Skagen’s core consumers are people interested in nice looking watches to compliment their lifestyle. They use their mobile phone to check the time, as much as they check their wrist. So I wanted to choose basic model to evaluate - given what a lot of people interested in the brand might choose. This model 355XLSSB watch is in Skagen’s Steel Collection. Other major collections are the Titanium and Swiss Movement collection. This makes it almost entry level for the brand.

I concur with Skagen that these should be considered flagship watches. They embody exactly what the brand wants to communicate, and will look good on just about anyone, without calling too much attention. As a gift, or as a watch for quieter days, a Skagen is a decent choice. Look for the 85XLTMXB and 585XLTMXM watches available soon. Retail price is 5, expect street price to be a bit less, in the many places Skagen watches are sold.
Here is the beautiful and uncommonly sporty new Polo Chronograph from Piaget that debuted at SIHH this year. What I really like is this video from TheTimeTV.com that has Piaget themselves casually discuss the watch. I love hearing that smooth French accent discuss this fine offering, from a fine watch company. Interestingly enough their primary focus, is my primary focus: ease of life with the watch. They aren't going on about the luxury of the watch, but rather the functions, comfort and overall quality. It is really refreshing to hear that (especially from Piaget) that them going on about how this watch "defines haute horology."
Mother of Pearl is always a smart choice for women's watches. But especially works for Moonphase models. The milky nature of this delicate dial creates the perfect canvas for the Moonphase indicator with rotating disks. Very mysterious, very sexy, it works.
