Great Everyday Watch!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

My first watch was a G-Shock and although that watch is extremely versatile and durable, I wanted something a little more classy and stylish. This watch fit the bill! It's a Nixon and they have a great track record for quality watches, this is no exception. In addition, unlike The Corporal (The Private's bigger brother), this watch is the perfect size and when fitted to your wrist correctly has a good heft to it that doesn't feel cumbersome at all. At the end of the day, the sale that was going on when I purchased this watch is what made my decision final but still at full price you won't regret adding this to your wardrobe!

Great Everyday Watch!

Great Watch

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

this watch looks great and feels great. One cool thin i noticed about the watch is that the hands on the gunmetal/blue color scheme glow a nice blue when it gets dark outside but however the glow dose not last all night. Over all i am impressed by the overall quality of the watch.

Great Watch - wear it daily

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

Very pleased with the quality, look and feel. and how it wears. I was concerned that the face size would be too big since it's larger than other watches I've owned. But, I really like it and feel like I made a great purchase.


    This watch is flawless. I was worried that the face would be too small, but it's just right. I have big wrists so I added the two extra links. I went with the all black and I'm really happy with it - another review said it looks like plastic but I disagree. The dished out face will save your mineral crystal from getting beat to hell. The design is simplistic, but it shows true style through it's flawless execution. If I could request an upgrade for this watch in future models I'd put a saphire crystal face on it and a backlight. This watch should belong to any true Nixon street or snow soldier.

    A work of art

      Seriously, I've had the gunmetal/blue for several months now and I still stare at the thing in awe. It's perfectly designed and crafted. I bought mine in a store for ten bucks more than here, and now that I've found this site I'm seriously considering buying the same watch in another color.

      Solid Time Piece

        I've been rocking this watch for about a year now and love it. It's lower on the Nixon totem pole of hot watches, but I dig it. I originally bought the 51-30, but it was so big that it was making my muscles on my left are significantly larger simply from having to carry the weight of the 51-30. After looking around a bit more, I settled on the all black Private SS. It's the perfect happy medium as far as size's not too big and not too small. I recommend.

        im trying to decide on a color and i am leaning towards the matte black/gold but i was curious if anyone knew if this color scheme made the watch look cheap or plastic like? thanks for the help

        I want to get a black watch but I am afraid of the black scratching and showing the metal below. Does the black paint chip at all?

        I've had the Private with the nylon band in Black for almost two years, and as long as you don't bash it against every doorway you walk through, it should be fine. Mine still looks great, because the carbide coatings Nixon uses on their pieces tends to hold up pretty well.

        What is the case diameter and if possible its thickness? Would it look too big on a skinny wrist? Thanks

        Hey Sebastian, this watch is 42mm across - so it's large, but by no means huge. Nice versatile size that isn't too subtle, but isn't too attention-grabbing either. I have pretty skinny wrists, and it looks great on mine - you'll just probably have to have a jeweler remove a link or two for you.

        can the watch be used as a unisex? with of course adjustment to a female wrist? I want to get this for my girlfriend
