Awesome watch. This watch is big like 2″ big but if you have big wrist its perfect. nixon did a great job making this a bold and manly watch. It definitely gets compliments every time i wear it. Only cons which are not that big of deal is that the chrono/time functions have to be unscrewed if you want to use them. Purpose is so water doesn’t get in when you go swimming. One last thing is that the chrono second hand reset to the 58 minute mark so it was confusing that you might have to calibrate it manually to get it to stop at the 12 o’clock position which is explained in the manual.
My boyfriend fell in love with this in the store but in gold, which I neglected to remember upon ordering. He actually loved it so much he decided to keep it and maybe get the gold in addition to this. For the price, the quality really can’t be beat. The heft of the watch case is impressive and the design and execution is absolutely gorgeous. He gets compliments wherever we go. The watch has a high polish finish, which is beautiful, but requires a daily wipe down to keep looking pristine. Overall, A+.
The watch is absolutely beautiful and the matte silver & black color scheme is a classic, but is surprisingly difficult to find. I originally bought the white face 51-30 from Nordstrom, but returned it looking for this particular watch and they do not even carry it! I had to find it on Amazon, but it was well worth the effort. I actually saved some money even with next-day delivery. This is my every day casual watch and it also dresses up well. I find the black/silver 51-30 Chrono to be the best looking Nixon watch second only to the solid gold 42-20 Chrono, but that just doesn’t seem a practical every day watch. As others have stated it is big, heavy, and rock solid. You can’t go wrong with this classic.
My girlfriend just got me this watch for my birthday! I LOVE THIS WATCH TO DEATH! This is my second 51-30… My first one being the gold and black Nixon 51-30 Chrono and this watch just BLEW MY MIND when I saw it in person and put it on for the first time! I honestly can’t put into words how amazing this watch is though! 🙂 If you’re looking for a Nixon 51-30 or a rose gold watch in general… YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS WATCH!
A great investment! The watch arrived in mind condition and without a scratch on it. I purchased this for my husband around Christmas time. It was worth every penny the watch cost just to see the look of surprise on my husband face had when he opened the box. He polishes it every day and takes it out on special occasions. He received a lot of compliments when he wears it. I am planning on buying him another Nixon watch for his birthday.
