THE 51-30 CHRONOGRAPH
"There are big watches and then there’s the Nixon 51-30. With a diameter of 51mm it’s a watch that is so large there’s a very real chance it will eclipse your wrist. If the sheer size alone doesn’t terrify you (it should) just wait until you put it on. In all honesty, you’ll gladly accept a ball and chain as the weighs-a-metric-ton timepiece fights to rip your arm clean from its socket. Then someone will make a comment about how much they like it and all the pointless whining will be dismissed. It’s so big it’s ostentatious and demands attention, but it’s also so perfectly thought out you can’t help but take notice. With a crown at 9:00 (so nasty spills on the pavement won’t amputate your wrist), a hardened metal crystal and more stainless steel than the average junk truck, it’s design perfection.
