Summary: first off, despite the fact that yes there are two different pictures (one with red trim and one with white) the front photo is white- therefore thats what youre buying. The product description also states the color. This is just one reason you should buy from Nixon's actual website, instead of relying on other ones. Anyways, even though this watch is in fact water-proofed, it obviously is more "fashion" than it is a rugged diver's watch...
Summary: I bought this watch as a gift for my son, less than two weeks ago. He wore it for the first time in ocean today, as a wave hit him & the watch the band broke and it floated away. I thought the watch looked flimsy and cheap (even though it is not cheap) and did not really like it, but its what he wanted. I think for a watch that is advertised for surfers it should definitely last more that two weeks!!!
Summary: What you see is not what you get. The picture on Amazon shows a black watch with red features. I recieved an all black watch with white numbers. I spoke to a Nixon retailer and he said that the picture on the Nixon box/package does not always match the watch inside. There were other pictures of other color combinations that Nixon does'nt make. I still decided to keep the watch. After about 2 weeks with normal wear the matt finish started to peel.
Summary: I have two distinct issues with this watch both of which are of no fault but my own. First off, the temperature feature of the watch was a main selling point for me when looking at this, because let's face it, it's super gimmicky, quirky and pretty cool to have for the convenience of knowing the temperature. Unfortunately it runs a good 10+ degrees higher when it's on your wrist depending on how tight or loose you wear the band.
