    300 meters down and the Nixon 51-30 Watch is still ticking.

    Nixon included a tide subdial in the 51-30 Watch, so you'll know when to paddle out at your favorite surf spot. With super oversized stainless steel case, this watch will survive the gnarliest wipeout you'll ever take, because unlike you, it'll keep ticking up to 300m underwater. A sleek, brushed finish on this Nixon watch's stainless steel band gives it go-anywhere versatility. The 51-30's double locking clasp ensures this premium timepiece won't leave your wrist involuntarily. *Available for U.S. Shipment only.

    I'm a Nixon fanboy, so I may be a bit biased. I have 15 Nixon's in total and 5 51-30's. If you're looking for a watch with a big face this is a must have. If you haven't had a watch with this size of face be warned they are big, and fairly heavy. I've worn mine at least 4-5 times a week for the last 7ish years and I don't even notice the weight. Anyone that doesn't wear a watch, or that wears PU or leather band puts it on and the weight and size are definitely noticeable. Great quality though and a super clean look that most big faced watch's don't have.

    Great watch!!! Wearing it right now.

    Nixon watches are great. I think I have about 8 or 9 of them. Great for work and any type of physical activity. Tough, durable watches that can take a beating and still look good.

    Great watch!

      This watch is awesome! My husband loves it and his friends want one. My only complaint is that when I went I pick it up at the post office, there was shipping due. Maybe DogFunk's shipping department needs to double check that they're paying the right postage.

      Gave as a gift

      I got this for my Brother for his Anniversary, he was super stoked on it. The watch looks nice, just wish it had the date on it.

      Big, tough, flashy - love it!

        I've got the silver one with the black face, killer watch - its got a 300-meter waterproof rating, making it awsome for diving, surfing, and pretty much any water-based activity. I took this watch all over south america, was surfing with it, had it in the heat, camping, snowboarding, and it still looks mint. Only complaint is the metal strap pulls the hair on my wrists sometimes :P

        Btw, check out:
        you can get it cheaper ($350 instead of $399).

        Great Watch

          I've worn my black Nixon 51-30 (PU band) for let's see, about 28 straight months. Never a hiccup, still looks and runs great. I put an Invisible Shield plastic film cover on the face to avoid scratches and it's worked great! Lots of compliments too!


            got this in gold and black .. amazing and huge .. i can't even count how many people have stopped me to look at it .. i thought i was getting in to a watch phase where i'd buy a bunch of Nixon's .. got a Private and Quattro .. then a 51-30 .. stopped buying them because it's by far the sickest watch i've seen yet .. i don't even want to wear anything else .. get this watch!


              I bought this watch for my husband & he loves it! It is a large watch- so if you are looking for something sleek and small this isn't the right watch for you. However, if you like big, chunky type jewelry, than this watch is the best; haven't seen one yet that is more stellar!

              Hows the dark wood and black combo? Nixon's website has it looking hella tight while it seems pretty lame elsewhere.

              I have been looking for a Nixon for a long time and was wondering what the difference is between the swiss and japenese version can any one help out with a diffusion I want the black and gold 52-30

              Yo Anthony, the 51-30 above has Swiss Movement, and the 51-30 Chrono (the version with the stopwatch/chronograph) has Japanese movement. No performance or quality issue for you to worry about, it's just the movement choice by Nixon. Just choose the colorway that you like the most!

              Hi everyone,

              anyone has any suggestions where to get a nixon stainless steel band from?
              i've got a 51-30 Chrono Leather (gunmetal) watch

              nixon won't sell just a band.. which IMHO is the dumbest thing i've ever heard from a watch co... i have a 51-30 and the battery just went dead :( i've had a scout for a few years and it has been flawless as has my wife's... and my sister's. i get tons of compliments on both watches..

              Is the Black/Purple too dark to see the numbers? Or does it have to glow-in-the-dark effect?

              The Black/Purple colorway isn't quite as dark as our photo in person. While the purple is dark, it's not totally murdered out, so you won't have trouble making out the time. Also, there's a little bit of luminescence in the hands, and around the face, although this glow doesn't last too long in total darkness, without a periodic sunlight recharge.

              Why is the adjustments on the left side

              Why is the adjustments on the left side

              its just how the watch is made, doesn't effect anything at all really, but i will say it can be nice when woren on the left arm so you don't have it scratching you on the wrist which can get a little annoying so think of it as a good thing
