Can someone PLEASE tell me how to remove...
Can someone PLEASE tell me how to remove a link from the band? It's just a hair too big right now and spins on my wrist a bit.
This watch is way overpriced. I spend two hundred dollars and the dial that with the hours printed on it comes lose. So when I try to read the time the number 12 is where the number 3 is. Also the pins in the wristband fell out. I could understand if it were one of the pins meant to be removed to make the watch smaller came out but the pins in the wrist band were suppose to be permanent. I mean how hard is it to keep the pins from falling out. Then to get it fixed I had to pay an arm and leg. I spent less then one hundred on my last watch and beat the hell out of it alot more then this watch. It had scatches all over it, the glass was scatched to hell but the wristband never fell off , all the dials or what ever you call them are still in the right place and it still ticks. The only thing you are paying for is the nixon name.
I've had my Rover for nearly 5 years and I still love it. I have gotten many compliments on it's appearance from both guys and gals. It's heavy but not too heavy, the band is comfortable, and the double clasp is secure. I've beat the hell out of this watch yet it still keeps precise time and wears it's battle scars with pride.
very durable, well-built watch
i've destroyed multiple watches, but this has lasted over a year. i researched nixons and found them to be waterproof to 100m (meaning you can wear it in a shower). the crown has a raised bezel, so the crystal looks as good as the day i got it (working on cars is a hobby of mine, and i have yet to scratch it). the backlight is bright enough to create a low glow across a dark room so you can guide yourself through the house in the middle of the night without turning on lights. it's a heavy sucker, yes, but i snugged mine down so it wouldn't flop around on my wrist and now i don't even notice it. the double-clasp is well built and hasn't let go yet.
Not the top but not the bottom
I am a self professed watch freak. Meaning I currently own about 30 timepieces. Now this addition is a "good" sports watch. It's a heavy case and the bracelet is beefy but comfortable. The link adjustments are OK and it comes with two extras. I took one off but had to put it back on 'cause it was too tight then adjust the clasp for the proper fit.
In the dark, the back light is good, but you cannot see the numerals with it so you use the clock face dark spots.
This is a very serviceable watch, should last quite a while and looks like it will take a beating and still perform. I own better looking and higher quality watches but for the backcountry this will suffice just fine.
The watch keeps perfect time and looks good, but the band is unreliable. It has broken on me at least 5 times all at different places. Having hard plastic links on the band is not a good idea. I salute this site for standing behind their products because they replaced my watch with a different Nixon watch without any hassles. Keep up the great work!!
another great watch form Nixon.
Great watch. The design of the band is very unique and it's tough as nails. I've smacked it pretty hard against table corners, doorknobs, sidewalk, etc. and it's barely shown a scratch. Very accurate too. I set it against the clock on my cell phone about a month ago and I don't think it's lost a second.
Just plain cool
I bought this watch because it looked unique and had some neat features. The black and silver metal band fits me better than any other watch with a metal band I have owned. I've already received some unsolicited compliments on it, mostly from women. Now my wife wants one.
Good looking watch
I bought this watch as a gift for my boyfriend, and it's much more handsome on a wrist than alone in a picture. Great looking, solid watch.
move over Rover
Ive worn my Rover watch casually for two years now. The buttons broke twice. They sent me a new one to replace the original one the second time because it couldn't be fixed and it was still within a year of my purchase. In less than a year later the band broke. Sweet! (One of the black composite pieces or whatever they are made of). It still tics. I just can't wear it.
Well crafted watch. Clean design. Band appears to be pretty durable. Keeps precise time. All in all, I think I got my moneys worth.
