The previous review sold me on the watch...

...and he nailed it to a tee. the post by Lucas was spot on. Just like him, I'm a collector of watches and have plenty from g-shock to a stash of nixons to Omega and Panerai. My wife loves her Cartier and my Panerai is even a GMT for travel. This is one of the most versatile and useful world time pieces I've had. Again, it's a better size "large" watch by not being ridiculous in the case width. Def has a bit beefier thickness to the case but looks proportional with the thicker bezel and larger crown / DST button on the 3 o'clock side. The nylon strap is a bit stiff but it makes for a better wear. I did not have and scratchiness with the buckle or strap - his strap might have had just a bit of a run in the nylon and hopefully thats calmed down for him since the review.
Again, as he stated, the DST button is kind of odd how it works but again once you setup to your home time, a simple turn of the bezel puts you in any time zone needed. The bezel is brown - more like a dark chocolate, I don't know where the "blue" distinction is on this model. I gave it a 5 star because I really enjoy it and very happy with and a great gift I received for Father's Day. I would give it a 4.5 but that is not an option here so had to round up :)
A few details away from amazing
Posted by lucas hutchcraft on Jan 31st 2016
My watch collection ranges from watches retailing for less than one hundred dollars, on up to twenty thousand. Within the price range that they reside in, I believe Nixon is one of the best options on the market. That being said, while I am quite happy with my new Nixon Passport, there are a few execution details that are less than perfect.
The case is great!! Obviously it is big, but it's not too tall, or too heavy to be able to wear comfortably all day. The strap, however, is mostly great The inside seam against the wrist at the attachment point for the buckle is a bit scratchy. I have looked for a loose thread, or edge that I could trim away, but it's too small an issue to find easily. However, it causes the inside of my wrist to itch now and then. This may improve with wear, or maybe I will switch the strap to one of the many available quality aftermarket options In a 22mm width.
The world time function is extremely cool in a watch at this price. But there are a few things that would make it better.
1 the bezel is actuall rather hard to turn. I am sure this is because of the gaskets that must be in place to maintain water resistance, but if you are traveling more than one or two timezones, your fingers will hurt by the time you turn it to the correct city. Since you can only turn it one direction, this also poses a bit of an issue if you happen to miss your goal timezone and have to go around again. Also with the bezel, the "paint job" whatever coating they are using for the city track is not as even in person as it is in pictures. And it certainly doesn't look navy. That being said I sort of like the faded coloration, but it could lead to someone being disappointed if they went solely by the stock photos.
While we are talking about the city track, the function of using the second crown for daylight savings is not ideal. Most world times simply show an arrow next to the city's with daylight savings so that you advance to the next city over during summer. It would be easier to use than the pusher, and would simplify the instructions.
All this being said, I am wearing mine today, and I am about to go on vacation and have every intention of using it for the trip.
I love Nixon watches. I suspect they will do other versions of this in the future, and hopefully they will address some of the minor shortcomings to make this into the world class budget friendly piece it could be.

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.
