Question about Skagen 355LGSC Wrist Watch

1 Answer

First time setting

I just bought 2 new skagen watches online and when they arrived they weren't working. is there something that has to be done to get them to start initially. i assume they do this so the batteries aren't in use while they sit on the shelves but now i don't know how to start them and would like to avoid taking it to a watch dealer

Re: first time setting

Do they have new batteries? Did you take the little plastic retainer off the crown? That is about it.

The watch will not work, it is brand new. I removed the plastic under the wheel and set the time. I pushed the wheel back in, but te second hand does not move. I have another Skagen watch and I don't know...

if you can return it you probably should . Though I would guess that it is the battery, the batteries are placed in at time of manufacturing and could have sat there for awhile before being sold. I see this a lot of times , its actually quite common. Its inexpensive to replace the battery but if you just bought and can return it I would.

Skagen watch band pins I've remove/changed spring pins other watches several times before but for this watch nothing happening How is it done?

they are very tough they have more pressure on them than most spring pins also on your watch they are tucked into the leather very well. the best way is with a spring tool apply quite a bit of pressure. a normal watch band will not fit this watch. it will only take skagen replacement bands.

Broken glass and new strap

Hi Chris,

Skagen watches have very thin domed crystals and they do break. Because of how thin they are it doesn't take a lot of pressure to break the crystal.

Crystals are not something any watch company covers in their warranty.

The crystal can be replaced. Either Skagen can replace them or a qualified watchmaker can. Prices vary and it would depend on how much you are willing to spend as to if it was worth it to you.

Where can I find a manual for a Skagen 390LTR?

Put into your search engine and you should arrive at a page which gives you a list of instructions you can choose from.

One of these should be suitable.

everything you will need is right here.
p.s. there is another little stem on the lower right side that controls the alarm it must be pulled out.

Set date on skagen 496sgsc

I used to sell Skagen watches,don't know excatly which watch you have . I even went to their web site and couldn't find it. Most Skagens ( unless they are a chronograph with the three curcles on the dial) works like this: Your watch stem has 3 differant settings #1 all the way in #2 half way out , and #3 all the way out . To set the time you pull the stem all the way out and adjust the time. To set the date,pull the stem all the way out and turn untill the date changes ( this will make sure you have it on am-pm correctly) then put the hands at 6 o'clock. Put the stem all the way back in, then pull the stem half-way out. Start with the stem all the way in and slowly pull it out and you will feel the "click" when it is half-way out. MAKE SURE YOU HANDS ARE NOT BETWEEN 9 O'CLOCK AND 3 O'CLOCK, OR YOU WILL BREAK THE AUTOMATC DATE SETTING GEAR!!!!! Then either turn the stem clock-wise , or counter clock-wise , one of the two ways will set your date.
