I purchased the "Black" version of this watch a month or so ago and have been super happy with it. Classic, yet fresh/modern looking design. Unlike most Nixon watches, the Chronicle SS has Swiss movement instead of Japanese, which I feel is the benchmark of a well made watch (no offense intended Japan, you make nice watch guts too). I have a small wrist and the face is large and bold without being too large for my skinny wrist. Backcountry.com got it wrong when they listed the watch as not being water-resistant. The watch is waterproof to 100 meters, it says so on the back of the case.
