Question about Skagen 233SSS Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Rose gold Skagen watch strap changing colour to brassy.

Around 2-3 months after purchasing my beautiful watch I noticed the strap had changed from it's rose gold colour to a rather nasty brassy colour. I sent it to a distibuter recommened on the warranty. The strapped was replaced with another (with a nick in it) and with in a couple of months it had started changing colour again. I do not wear perfumes, skin creams etc. I do not use chemical cleaning products.
Have questioned several distributors who are very vague and say things like 'it may be your sweat'. Hmm. Don't do much of that either.
I don't wear it every day as I have 2 other Skagen watches but this is a favourite. Any ideas. Can the brassy colour be cleaned off? It is on the outside not the side touching the wrist.The inside is still rose coloured.??? Thanks, Helen

This answer may sound odd but it happens, Everyone exerts different energy. Skagen bands are usually very tolerant of that but something in the band is having an effect from your skin. which is unlikely but very common in other watches. I believe they use copper in the mix for the rose gold bands, you may want to request a silver or gold band next time.. unfortunately the copper does not react well with your skin.

I Ordered a navy blue with gold Apple Watch when my son opened it today it was rose gold obviously aman isn't going to wear a rose gold watch. I ordered on dec 7


Personally I prefer the colour of rose gold...

Retailer might have sent you the rose gold model due to supply problems rather than send nothing. It might even have been done from good motives.

Double check your order to ensure you didn't click the wrong colour box by mistake and then contact the retailer if they really sent the wrong colour and advise them you are returning it for exchange or refund and expect them to refund your postage. You will need to use a premium service that is recorded and tracked and has adequate insurance cover.

Skagen has no stores or outlets in Qatar but you probably can buy one from Skagen's website and have it shipped to you there. Ask them about it by emailing skagen@skagen.com. (That is a beautiful watch,)

I have Guess model w95046g1 and i noticed that the day of the month pointer is not moving, while all others change in time "I do not know if the month pointer moves too, as i just bought it 2 days...


you may have to turn the hands around and around to get the day to move, for some reason the day is always a problem on watches, if you go 24 hours around and it does not change you better return the watch.

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.

Best way to clean my rosegold coloured watch ******** my Skagen watch


Unless it is totaly trashed, the best way to keep your watch looking good is to get yourself a jewelers cloth ( rough cloth) which you can buy at alot of jewelry stores, and jewelry departments at bigger stores. The cloth has a rough (a brightening agent) that when you rub it on your watch shines it up like new. Make sure you get a gold jewelers cloth ( not a silver one) since your watch is rose gold coloured) and usually you have to open it up becuse the outside is just a regular cloth and the rough is in the middle of the cloth. The instructions you get with the cloth should tell you how to use the cloth. Good luck!!
