I have had 7 Nixon watches now, but I'd have to say this is my favorite by far. I'd been wanting a black watch for a while and decided to go with the 51-30. I've been very impressed. It's huge, weighty, and feels really good on the wrist. The construction is very solid from the clasp to the bevels. Looks really good with everything and the large numbers on the face pop. I'd recommend this watch to anyone.
