Nixon, Private Eye.

Don’t underestimate the Nixon Private Watch. Its subtle no-frills look might make you think it isn’t very observant, but the truth is that its face is always watching you. A PU backing on the canvas band enables it to slide easily and a triple gasket crown makes it impenetrable.

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this watch for my boyfriend for university graduation and let's just say I got mad brownie points (not that I need them). The price was super decent for a Nixon watch and it is cool that you can easily switch out the wrist band if the original wears out. Only downfall is that there isn't a backlight - but I knew that before I bought it. The face is bigger than I thought it was going to be - I was nervous it would be too small so I am very happy with the size. All in all this is a really good looking watch, the face is nice and big so it's easy to tell the time. I got the white face with brown band.



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

It is a very simple and solid watch. Nothing too fancy but amazingly designed and thought of.


Love it

  • Gender:Male

Best watch ive ever had. The all black with canvas band is perfect and looks awesome


Great Watch, could be a better band

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Purchased this watch for use hiking, coaching and everyday wear. Quality watch, very easy to read, doesn't seem to fog with extreme humidity. Is very sturdy and simple, but the leather band doesn't have much stretch, so until I break it in a bit, it is either too tight or too loose. Hopefully in a couple months it will be perfecto.

So just a follow up on my prior review. With this watch and the leather band, it took a little while to break in, but now the band fits great. It is still running awesome since my last post in 2012. It has survived surprise downpours in Southern Utah, countless summer hiking and camping trips in Wyoming and around Northern Utah. It has even sat in my touring pack during ski trips, including a 3 day trip in Colorado. I like to keep it in the pack just in case, but don't pull it out much. This means that water, humidity, extremely dry and dusty conditions, fine grain Moab sand, and bitter cold don't seem to effect this watch. Haven't had to change the batteries or replace the band. I wear it to the office most days, and take it with me on weekend adventures. Great watch if you want something dependable.

I have approx. 8in wrist. will this be a squeeze or is there room for comfort? any big guys rockin' this watch out there?

I've got just over a 7inch wrist and it's still got quite a few more notches, you should be fine dude.

I love this watch, but theres one little...

I love this watch, but theres one little hitch, I'm a girl. Would this watch look waaaay too big on my wrist? I'm 6' tall so I'm hoping I could pull it off...

here's the sizing for it:

Face size: 29 - 35mm FROM 3 O'CLOCK TO 9 O'CLOCK POSITION
Bracelet measurements: 28 mm wide x 8 inches long


Great watch

    This watch is awesome. I got it for my husband for Xmas after looking at hundreds of other watches--many of which were more expensive. Totally sleek, clean lines, great size for men's watch (not too bulky). I love the copper rim. Style is subtle enough that it can be worn to work as well.



      Right out of the box the watch was not working. Perhaps one might check the watch prior to sending it may help. Hassle sending things back.

      would this look good on someone who has a small wrist? i usually wear a 35mm only watch.

      i just ordered mine.
      im 5'6 and weigh 120 lbs, so I'll let u know as soon as i get it

      Just got it.
      its a NICE watch, but alittle too "bulky" for me.
      im exchanging for a differ watch.

      So I absolutely love the All Black/Brown, but I'm concerned-as an outdoor grave shift worker-will I be able to read this watch in the dark? Because I'm not allowed to have my phone on me, otherwise I wouldn't bother.

      I own the all black private and I love it but it is hard to read in the dark (even with the so-called glow in the dark hands). I do get a lot of compliments about the watch but the straps does get worn pretty quickly... I usually replace them every year.


      nice watch

        its definitely not as expensive as some other nixon watches but this one looks as nice as any other. I have to agree with everyone else that the band is not a keeper. i've had it maybe 4 months and i can tell where the plastic or poly lining is gonna split and get uncomfortable.


        Nixon does it again

          I got my watch in all black with orange numbers. I love nixon products and this one doesn't fall short. Numbers are nice and big and there is also a locking button at the end of the strap so it's just not hanging loose.

          Nixon does it again
