Recently snagged this watch in the Drab color on Whiskey Militia for a killer price and am convinced it is going to be the first of many Nixon watches. Build quality seems great and the watch has some noticeable 'heft' to it but doesn't feel at all heavy when on your wrist.
Have always owned either black or silver watches -- was a bit hesitant about the drab color scheme, but it looks great in person. Will pair easily w/ any outfit.
As already mentioned, the hour markings are a polished stainless steel (at least on the Drab model) and just enough to catch your eye without being obnoxious.
The only minor gripe I have is with the backlight. A bit weak in illumination compared to other watches I own, and only the center lights up (not the hour markings). Then again, anyone over the age of 10 should be able to tell the time w/o using hour markings. Regardless, it's an amazing watch and would recommend it to anyone.
And for anyone wondering... the watch comes with 2 additional links and pins. While they recommend having a dealer size it for you, the pins can easily be punched out. Use a small deadblow hammer/punch and punch the pin out OPPOSITE from the side with the slot (looks almost like a small flathead screw)
