Description

You'll still need a passport and camera film.

The stylish, globe-trotting Nixon Rover is back, and looking better than ever. This time around, it's housed in a brand new rugged stainless steel case with a unique vintage SLR focus ring-inspired rotating bezel, and powered by a reliable 3 hand Japanese quartz. The only similarities between this new Rover and the version that helped pioneer the Nixon name is the thirst for adventure.

  • 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
