nixon automatic sr watch
I bought one used but in great shape and totally love it!this watch is the most durable watch i have ever imagined! i work in a machine shop and it get banged around alot and the only marks there are are the ones on the clasp of the band!i dont think i will ever have to buy another watch for years to come! and if i do, it will be the new version of the automatic by nixon and i will pay new price if i have to!
It's deluxe, son..
I've wanted this watch for a long time. Finally was able to get one. Looks great and keeps time well. I have a smallish wrist and agree with the previous poster that it doesn't overwelm my wrist like the 51-30 does. The deluxe case it comes in is pretty dope. Looks great in my Nixon display case
All Black Bezel Durability
First of all I love this watch. I have a smaller wrist and the dimensions are perfect to give a nice masculine large watch look without it looking ridiculously huge on me. Movement has been smooth and accurate running at ~+10 secs a day which is well within spec. It also only deviates about +-2 seconds from the +10 so I but if I had it regulated it would be close to spot on. Quick change date is sweet as well and seems to turn over about 4 min before midnight.
One nitpick is the bezel on the all black edition. Tungsten shouldn't really scratch...but this is tungsten that is coated black. I got a scratch in the coating and you can see a bit of the silver metal underneath. Pretty dumb to do this with tungsten, they would have been much better using the titanium carbide stainless steel on the bezel as well. The rest of the watch (with the exception of the clasp that I rub on my desk all day) is looking perfect!
Great Watch...need to take it to a shop, though
This watch is greatly constructed, bold, and solid.
PROS: I wear this everyday in an industrial environment climbing around steel structures, etc...in 8 Months, the tungsten bezel has not scratched, nor has the crystal. there are a couple minor scuffs on the upper parts of the stainless band, but i am very happy with it's durability.
Cons: 1. It seems to run a little slow out of the box. from what i understand, i think a watchmaker can adjust this for me...
2. After about 7 months, the watch inexplicably stopped one day for about 8 hours while actively wearing it, and no amount of time adjustment or winding got it restarted - it just restarted on its own at some unknown time - maybe a trip to the watchmaker can shed some light on this as well.
...and a book, Nixon doesn't leave you hangin'. Please drop your $800 now.
How much does this clock weigh? It looks...
How much does this clock weigh? It looks great, but I hate carrying around a heavy watch.
How large is it? Does anyone have a photo of it on a hand?
great looks & feel
classy & business-like yet neither old-fashioned nor snob, sporty and trendy yet neither cheap looking nor too juvenile. Great balance!
solid watch, great service
the automatic is a well-built, great looking watch. it doesn't scratch and sits nicely on your wrist despite the size. it's the best Nixon has to offer. and other people love this thing which is, you know, kind of the reason you want a nice watch, right?
one warning - if you don't wear it for two days it will completely stop. that's standard for most automatic watches, but it can be inconvenient if you rotate between a few different timepieces. if you wear this thing everyday, it keeps great time.
I am an avid collector with over 80 watches worn regularly. I was looking at the Hamilton Frogman Automatic,over $1300.00, short story,after seeing the white and black faced Nixon's I am the proud owner of both. The Hamilton is on hold. Money well spent,quality is second to none. Great job Nixon! Hope to see more in this class...
Nixon Automatic Watch
I experienced great turn around rate with getting my watch shipped to me after I placed the order, and a price that I couldn't find anywhere else.
High quality, great looking
I bought this watch as a gift, but had to spend some time playing with it before handing it over! You can tell the quality by just picking it up - it is heavier than most watches and is very solid in construction. The watch has a very classy & sophisticated appearance, but is still modern. The self-renewing motion is perfect for someone who doesn't want to take the time to change batteries.
