Scaled to fit any situation
The 48-20 is the alternative to the norm. Modeled after Nixon's legacy The 51-30 Chrono, the 48mm case is the just right size and proportion that's not too big, not too small. Inspired by speed and torque measuring instruments, this wide eye chronograph watch is meant to leave hearts racing, a nod to watch aficionados as to what's under the hood. Built for power, this watch delivers a stainless steel case with hardened mineral crystal and stark contrast dial.
Movement: Miyota Japanese quartz 6 hand wide eye 1/20th second chronograph with date and 9 hour crown and pusher placement
Dial: The dial is surrounded by a concave dial ring and includes bold printed indices, a printed seconds track, CD textured subdials and custom molded hands.
Case: 48 mm, 200 meter/20 ATM custom solid stainless steel case, solid stainless steel unidirectional rotating bezel with countdown timer, hardened mineral crystal, triple gasket screw down crown and pushers, anodized aluminum pusher sleeve on chronograph start pusher, stainless steel screw down caseback and screw pin lugs.
Band: 23 mm custom solid stainless steel 3 link bracelet with a solid stainless steel double locking clasp with micro adjust.

I am updating my review below. Watchismo offered to pay the return on the watch I bought and replace it with a brand new time piece.
Great watch bad vendor

I purchased this watch supposedly as a new time piece. It arrived in a bent box with blood stain on it! The watch band did not have the protective paper or plastic on it, and the crown guard had been removed. This was not the new watch that I paid for. Go to Amazon if you want a new watch.
Nixon never misses!

My 3rd Nixon watch and I will buy more. Always get compliments on the Nixons. I'll be buying more colors of the 48-20 Chrono. The value is worth buying one of each!
Awesome watch! Even better value!

I bought 2 Nixon watches (51-30 Chron and the 48-20 Chrono) for their looks and their reputation. I was not only no disappointed, but both exceeded my expectations. The 48-20 is hefty without being overbearing. The one I purchased is the "SS Blue/Volt" combo, so it has an understated dark blue face and lime-green second had...gorgeous combo! I love everything about this watch from the comfort and fit, to the functionality and accuracy. I get compliments on it a lot and it feels like a million bucks on the wrist. My only critique is that I wish the "second hand" (called "chrono second") moved continuously, but either way, it keeps great time and looks amazing. I love this watch!

I have been buying watches from Watches.com for several years...always excellent, from customer service, to delivery...easy returns, if needed.
Outstanding Customer Service.

I had an unfortunate thing happen with the links for two of the watches I ordered (the issue was with Nixon, not with watches.com just to be absolutely clear) and after being left stranded by Nixon I contacted Angela with watches.com who fixed the problem and was friendly and courteous the entire time. I would have 100% been busying the rest of my watches from them due to her efforts alone but on top of their customer service being outstanding, the products arrived on time and looked absolutely gorgeous when unpacked. 5 stars doesn't do them justice.

Great selection of watches

Great selection of watches, really good prices. Fast shipping is just as important to me when buying from someone. Watches.com has fast shipping, and good communications on that shipping. I would highly recommend watches.com to anyone who has a watch fetish. Thanks.
Great quailty and excellent price

The price was so good that I was worried it would be something different than it appeared, but the watch was exactly what I had seen elsewhere for much more money. Great quality and excellent price. It was here lightening quick! I will definitely use watches.com again.
