More than likely you have the regualr Player in all black. I think the ceramic version should survive a good beating and still look like new.

I got one of these last week and I just can't get enough of it. I ordered it in the Antique Copper colorway and it's pretty sick lookin'. Everyone notices it considering it's large and ballin'! I think the finish on it will really wear nicely as it looks aged already. The face is a mild concern as it is large enough that it would probably break a little easier than the Banks or The Player.
Oh well, wear carefully and enjoy!
I bought this watch because I have loved the other two Rip Curl Vegas watches (GET ONE OF THOSE TOO!!)
This watch band on this (Subic) is the same width as the Vegas, but the face a total of about one half inch wider than the band and it is rather large.size face so that even a blind guy could see what damn time it is.
The version I have is the "Midnight edition" which has the black band, black face, dark gray minute/hour markers.and silver hands.
I believe it is different due to the picture being of an older model or version. The new Nixon logo is not Italics I believe.
So, I got the Nixon Capital in Gold/Black color scheme and this thing is Boss Status! It has a certain elegance to it. It is flashy, but not too flashy. With the black ceramic outer bezel frame and black face, it just = AWESOME. I will say that I am a white guy and I was not sure if this was not for a white guy (if you know what I mean). But the fact of the matter is, this was is "Like a Boss". If it were all gold, I would have said no, but it's just sick. Get one. Love it. Live it.
All seriousness aside, his watch is a very classy watch. It does have a large face, but since it is an oval shaped face (which I like), it doesn't appear too large. Check out the photo...
Basically, this watch (I just bought one for myself a few days ago, does that same thing. The crown does not lock down tight. Instead, it is a double gasket crown meaning it just needs to pushed in all the way to be sealed. I have 5 other Nixon Scout watches and they work the in the same fashion.
So, keep your worries down to a minimum of say none, man. Except of course making sure the crown is pressed in all way before plunging into the water.
I do my best to keep my parents in "fresh" gear. This worked out well as a gift for my mom. My sister mentioned to me that our mom didnt have any what she called "Clutch purses" So this seemed to fall into that category and it worked out great. The button snap does require a bit of pressure to close, but all in all, she loved it. I filled it with gift cards to up the classy factor of the gift.
This a great kit. I did not know there was a tiny screw driver included with is cool, but if you have an Oakley Store close by, they will, for no charge, refill the fluid can for you! Makes this well worth the 15 bucks
I bought this wallet for my dad for Fathers day and after I looked it over, I want one for me now. It is what I call a "Convertible Wallet" It has a built in removable ID wallet so if someone wanted to just have a "Front Pocket Wallet" then they can remove it and leave the bulk of the wallet behind. Get one. Its worth it and you'll love it
Well, not really. It is a quite, but loud watch. It gets compliments. Best part, is it does its job well, which is tell time! Get one. No really, GET ONE!!!!
