You'll still need a passport and camera film.

The Rover is back! Inspired by the outdoors lifestyle, it's a casual contemporary design for those who feel most at home when they're far from home. The burly stainless steel case is inspired by vintage camera lenses, and the watch has a rotating bezel to manually focus you in on low and high tides. From day to night, the glowing superlum indices keep you on time, while the canvas and leather band make you feel most in your element when you're out in the elements.

Movement: Miyota Japanese quartz 3 hand with date.

Dial: The dial includes printed indices and seconds track, and custom molded hands with Superlum luminous fill

Case: 42 mm, 100 meter, custom solid stainless steel case, solid stainless steel uni-directional rotating bezel with 12 and 6 o'clock enamel fill markers, hardened mineral crystal with date magnifier, triple gasket stainless steel crown with enamel fill, stainless steel screw down caseback and spring pin lugs.

Band: 22 mm genuine leather or canvas custom band with leather backing and stainless steel keepers and buckle.

  • Hardened mineral crystal is highly resistant to dings and scratches
  • Hour and minute hands, and dial indices alike are treated with a luminous paint for maximum low-light readability
  • Raised cyclops over the date window adds a touch of class while increasing legibility
  • Nylon canvas band features genuine Italian leather backing and custom stainless steel keepers

A hoi hoi,
Is the waterproofing 50m or 100m? Nixon says 50m, BC.com says 100m. Who's the lucky winner? Also is this watch surfable?

Best Answer Responded on

It is rated at 100m. Can't help on the second question sorry.

The Rover II really exemplifies what Nixon is all about: rugged simplicity wrapped in an engaging design that might even inspire a little wanderlust along the way. But what I was most pleasantly surprised by with this watch, is how powerful the luminescence is. A brief charge in natural sunlight results in a reassuring glow that lasts well into the night - a glow that's right on par with what I would expect from some Swiss or Japanese watch brands. Granted, it's not quite as bright as C3 Superluminova or Seiko's LumiBrite panels (probably the technical inspiration here), but still very damn good - easily the best I've experienced from Nixon. Bear in mind that the lume on the All Black and the Surplus colorways is going to be a little brighter than the white lume on the regular Black colorway, as those green hues tend to hold a subtly brighter glow for longer. Peep this photograph to see the impressive green lume shortly after a fresh charge from an LED lamp.

* not a huge fan of the included strap. Its leather backing and custom keeper rings are very nice, but the fitment holes are located too far apart and my small wrist is apparently in between sizes. Obviously not everyone will have this problem, but it was enough for me to change the strap out for a nylon zulu I had lying around
